I have 3 kids and finding things to keep them entertained can sometimes be a challenge. With 3 different ages and tastes in toys, it seems that I have a difficult time finding something that they will all play with. When I was given a chance for them to try the Switch & Go Dinos, I was not sure how they would all react.
Let's just say that they are having a blast with them. It took them very little time to get them out of the package and start to play with them. And, as usual as far as kids are concerned, they didn't need me to read the directions – they just figured it out on their own. In fact, in the time it took for me to read how to turn it on and change the toy around, my kids were showing ME what to do!
My kids loved being able to morph the toy from car to dinosaur and back again. They also had a great time with the sound effects — it really brought the toy to life. I just really was shocked at how easy it was to change. All 3 of my kids (ages 3 – 7) were all able to easily change the toy's shape and watch it change into the dinosaur right before their eyes. I really appreciate a toy that doesn't require "mom work" for them to be able to play with it!
My son, who is five, immediately latched onto Sliver the T-Rex. He said that he was a real dinosaur because he was green. He is also a John Deere fan, so that "might" have played into his toy preference as well. Regradless, he plays with it and just had it move onto his farm along side the combines, tractors and animals. He even slept with it the first night! I guess you could say he is a fan of this toy!!
Each toy features and LCD screen for customizable animation. Kids can personalize their own toy by selecting animated animal eyes in dinosaur mode and driver when in driver form. The dinosaur mode actually even shares interesting dinosaur facts — exclaiming up to 30 different expressions!
This toy gives kids (and parents) 2 toys for the price of one – saving parents money! It is so affordable so it makes a great gift for your kids or even for your kids to give to friends for birthday gifts. The 4 starter Dinos: Horns the Triceratops, Sliver the T-Rex, T-Don the Pteranodon and Tonn the Stegosaurus are all currently available for purchase on-line at Amazon for just $15.99. Starting June 18th, you can purchase them from VTech directly.
