A few weeks ago I was sent the VTech Chuggington Laptop. Which was kinda funny because just a few days earlier I was in Toys R Us and noticed all the VTech laptops (including the Chuggington one) and thought about getting one for Carter for his birthday later this month. He really enjoys interactive, educational toys! He loves pushing buttons and listening to what is being said or done. Evan actually has taken the VTech Chuggington Laptop over! Poor Carter is such a second born. He is perfectly content watching Evan play. Which really isn't such a bad thing since he is listening to all the games, sounds, letters and numbers and watching along. Besides Carter is probably just slightly too young to play on his own anyway (the VTech laptop is for 3 years and older) and he doesn't quite get how to run the games. But I will hear him answer the questions before Evan can hit the correct button ;-)!
Here is a little bit of info about the VTech Chuggington Laptop:
Children ages 3 and older will have fun with their favorite characters from Chuggington as they choose from 40 learning activities. Your child can play as one of their favorite trainees in Adventure Mode, where they'll earn badges for proving their skills. Or if your child wishes, they can also play in Exploration Mode where they can learn about letters and numbers at their own pace. With the Chuggington Traintastic Laptop, your child can be a trainee, too!
During rest time, I have told the kids they can nap, read or play educational games (which now includes the VTech Chuggington Laptop and LeapFrog products). I love listening to Evan in the monitor while he is playing the Chuggington Laptop. He likes to play the Adventure Mode and each time he earns a badge I hear him whisper, "yesssss"! After all, he is my very competitive one!
If you have a Chuggington fan in your household and need something to encourage learning/reviewing letters, alphabetical order, letter case, words, numbers, number order, counting, shapes, memory, matching, and more, this would be an ideal educational toy to add to your arsenal.
And the cool thing is, you can get entered to win one, right here!!
