Go! Go! Smart Wheels Car Carrier Review (VTech)

What It Is

Go! Go! Smart Wheels Car Carrier is part of a creative and engaging line of preschool vehicles that gives kids plenty of opportunities for open-ended play while helping reinforce basic learning concepts and involving them in a favorite and classic play pattern: cars and vehicles. This free-wheeling car carrier comes with one truck that can be loaded onto either level of the car carrier. The ramp lifts up and down so kids can pretend they're loading cars just like they see on the highway. The panel on the side also gives kids lots to explore as they play. The cell phone speaks the numbers 1–5 or the corresponding colors when pressed. The buttons on the bottom teach shapes and encourage kids to pretend to fix up the cars. The turning gears lower the platform, and the big blue button on the top has songs, motor sounds, and much more. Even the windshield lights up as kids play. There are six additional accessories kids can use to inspire imaginative vehicle play. The truck bed has what VTech is called a SmartPoint. When a Smart Wheels vehicle is put on the point, it plays sounds that correspond to that vehicle.

Is It Fun?

The entire Go! Go! Smart Wheels line is well-designed from both play and learning perspectives. There is lots for little fingers to explore, great basic learning reinforcement, and all the fun that kids associate with playing with cars. This is great as a stand-alone toy or as part of a whole collection of these vehicles and playsets, which we think you're going to want.

Who It’s For

The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Car Carrier is for ages 1–5, but this will most likely appeal to kids right in the middle of that range.
