Make Learning Fun With VTech Switch & Go Dinos

The holidays are right around the corner and it does not hurt to start looking early for a fun and educational toy for your little ones. My son has two loves when it comes to toys, cars and dinosaurs the VTech Switch & Go Dinos combines both. The Vtech Switch and Go Dinos have a small LCD screen with animation when in vehicle and dino mode. The different action buttons makes learning fun by providing interesting facts about the dinosaur. There are 7 Switch and Go Dinos that ranges from $16-$50 which makes it available for any budget.

Span the Spinosaurus

Span the Spinosaurus is a fighter jet that transforms into a dino. When he is in fighter jet mode he makes real flying sounds and there is a motion sensor that creates fun flying noises when my little run pretends it is flying around the house and it comes with 4 disks to launch and a hook so it can swoop down and save a baby dino.

Atilla the Ankylosaurus

V-TECH® Switch & Go Dinos Atilla the Ankylosaurus

Attila transforms from a construction vehicle to an Anklyosaurs in a few steps. The vehicle comes with a tow cable and hook that pulls his heavy-duty trailer that becomes his tough shell when in dino mode. He even comes with a wreaking ball with real swinging action in dino mode.

Brok the Brachiosaurus

The largest of the Switch and Go Dino collection Brok is as cool as they come. He transforms from a car carrier and allows you to carry around your included race car and Pterodactyl that shoots into the air when launched by pushing down on the spoiler. In Dino mode you can hear Brok stomp his feet when you push him and his head becomes motorized when you push a button on his back.

My little guy had so much fun playing with his Switch and Go Dinos!
