What It Is
Go! Go! Smart Wheels Train Station Playset is part of VTech's new line of vehicles for toddlers that features VTech's patent SmartPoints locations. Once you've assembled your playset, Hit the on switch on the side of the train and press down on the motor control button on its top to send the train into motion. You can also press the light-up button to hear different songs, sounds, and phrases. Place your toy vehicle on the tracks and when the vehicle goes over one of the nine SmartPoints, it will flash, play greetings, songs, and more.
Is It Fun?
The SmartPoints are definitely the highlight of this playset. What we like about the SmartPoints is that since vehicle play is often about open-ended play, these points really engage toddlers and encourage them to sing along and interact with the playset as your vehicle moves around the tracks. There are also multiple ways you configure the track so each time you play will be a new experience.
Who It’s For
Go! Go! Smart Wheels Train Station Playset for ages 1–5.
What To Be Aware Of
There is an included guide to offer suggested track configurations. Some configurations require an open piece for corners, which means kids will need to redirect the train themselves. Otherwise the vehicle will be veering off in the wrong direction. Unfortunately there aren't enough closed corner pieces included to fix this issue.
We found some pieces difficult to snap into place so toddlers will need some assistance and guidance assembling the playset.
Three AAA batteries are required for the train and two are required for the station, they are not included.
Go! Go! Smart Wheels vehicles are compatible with other Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets.
