You probably know VTech's Switch & Go Dinos as really cool toys that combine dinosaurs and vehicles. With a few simple movements, kids can easily transform them. In the case of the Switch & Go Dinos Turbo T-Rex Launcher, the T-Rex transforms into a race car, with appropriate sounds. One button controls sounds, and one controls speech for both the dino and the car. That's fun by itself, but here's what makes this even cooler. Use the launcher to send your car or dino flying. Put it into the launcher, pump it, and let it fly. The more you pump it, the faster and farther your vehicle will go.
This is really well-designed, and it's easy for young kids both to position the vehicle correctly in the launcher and rev it up with the plunger.
The Switch & Go Dinos T-Rex Launcher is for ages 3-8.
The vehicle includes one AAA battery for try-me purposes.
One thing to note, the instructions aren't really clear about where the battery goes. They say on the bottom, but it's actually the top.
There's also a two-level volume switch on the bottom.
There are three other sets in this series, all sold separately.
1 AAA battery required
