The product has been provided by VTech so I could experience it with my family; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
We love playing with VTech toys in our house, and as I’ve recently shared, our boys have all had VTech toys through their many stages of growth and development- newborn to the kindergarten years. While they loved the baby toys, I’m finding that Aiden seems to be the most interested in his VTech toys right now as he’s learning to write words and form sentences. And since the other two boys know that VTech means fun, they’ve been constantly trying to steal toys away from Aiden! Luckily for all three of them, VTech sent us their Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm for all three of them to enjoy together (which never truly happens, but it definitely did with this set!).
The Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm is kind of like two toys in one. It’s one part track, where the boys can build the path with puzzle-type track pieces and roll Reggie the SmartPoint rooster all around. The bottom of Reggie fits into the track and the boys can roll him from the garden to the tree swing, and then back up into the colorful barn before going down the slide. This was especially fun for Ezra (2 years old) since he is really into tracks and push/pull toys right now.
The interactive part of the Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm is the part that my older boys seemed to enjoy the most. Reggie the SmartPoint rooster makes different sounds, phrases, and music depending on where he is throughout the farm. There are 7 different SmartPoint locations where Reggie interacts, making it fun to zoom him around the farm and listen for his response at each SmartPoint.
In addition to the SmartPoint locations, there were lots of other interactive and imaginative play features on the farm. Ezra’s favorite was definitely the carrot patch, where by pushing the watering can to “water” the carrot tops, they grow taller and pop out of the ground. Around the carrot patch are different brightly colored shapes that can be removed and then fit back inside the bases, and the barn has lights, sounds, and music with different number buttons.
The boys definitely had a lot of fun playing with the Go! Go! Smart Animals Grow & Learn Farm, and have asked for some more sets since it will connect to the other Go! Go! Smart Wheels and Animals playsets. The Farm set retails for $39.99, and is geared toward a wide age range of 1-5 (which worked perfectly for my boys ages 2, 3, and 5!).
