We are moving in one week and it’s 112 degrees outside. Translation= VERY bored kids! They were all excited to help me pack at first but after the 20th box, the novelty is wearing off. That’s why I couldn’t be more happy to receive the Vtech Switch N Go Dinos in the mail! I don’t normally review toys but these ones were really impressive.
So they are transformers, essentially. They easily turn into cool race cars and back into Dinos. We got the T-Rex and the Triceratops. My kids were so excited to get these, they could barely wait for me to rip off the packaging.
They are pretty cool, I had to admit. They make noises (which I’m actually not sure is a pro or a con to a parent.) They have these LCD screens that are sensitive to whether or not the toy is in Dino form or Car form. So when the toy is a Dino, the LCD shows eyes and it says things like “Hit me with your best shot!” and “I’m Sliver the T-Rex!” (Um, Sliver?) And then you switch it to a car and the LCD shows a speedometer and such and makes car racing sounds. One huge bonus: There is also a volume control button!
My kids were really excited about these toys. They played with them all day. They loved that they could switch them by themselves without frustration and hey, I got two toys for the price of one! It’s nice to find a toy that has so much variation: it says over 30 phrases, some of which are facts about dinosaurs <–educational. They are also made from high quality materials and held up to several major and intentional car crashes.
There are four of these VTech Switch & Go Dinos out so far, Silver the T-Rex, Horns the Triceratops, T-Don the Pteranodon, and Tonn the Stegosaurus. You can Buy today on Amazon for only $15.99. Pretty good deal for how much of a toy these are. (And starting June 18th, you can also buy them on Vtechkids.com.) These would make a great gift for your kids or grandkids. What do you think? Would you buy these? Who would you buy this for?
