VTech Switch and Go Dino's combine not only two of a boys’ most popular toys – dinosaurs and vehicles – to create a unique 2-in-1 play experience, but with a customizable LCD screen, voice and vehicle sounds they also have that does of technology my son craves. Switch & Go Dinos don’t just make him happy though, they are toys I feel good about as well; engaging, educational toys that don’t break the bank. These dino’s start at just $15.99, with a collection of seven durable Dino's to choose from.
So how exactly do VTech Switch & Go Dinos work? Let’s take a look at my son’s favorite of the collection Span the Spinosaurus!
Span is not just one cool dinosaur, he can also transform into an awesome fighter plane! In dinosaur mode, Span can lurch forward with the press of a button on his tail. He is also equipped with action buttons, which when pressed, activate one of 30 phrases. Span loves to teach fun dinosaur facts and tell silly jokes! The LCD screen was one of my sons favorite features. You can customize the look of Span by choosing different sets of eye to be displayed.
If you’re like me the thought of transforming toys might scare you. In my experience not only is a hard for a child to transform a toy, but I have been left stumped a time or two myself. VTech has done a great job at making Switch &Go Dinos easy for little hands to transform in just seconds. And it took my son just second to take Span from a Dino to Span, the fighter plane!
The plane is equipped with sensors to detect movement and respond with exciting flying sound effects. There are also four fun food discs included that load into Span’s wings and can be launched out for feeding time – I like that these disc were referred to as food not rockets or missiles etc. They also load into the legs of Span when he is in Dino mode.
In Plane mode Span also has some fun phrases and facts, along with the customizable LCD screen where you can choose the look of your pilot, to customize the experience. Oh, and did I mention there is volume control as well - thank you for that VTech!
Each VTech Switch & Go Dino also comes with an additional accessories. For instance, Span comes equipped with a crane and rescue cage for other Switch & Go Dinos, as well as a small dinosaur. Beneath Span you will find a small hook that will attach to the cage so Span can come to the rescue, and fly out trapped Dino's!
