Count & Learn Turtle
Many parents have told us that they have come to expect quality and ingenuity from Vtech products. The Count & Learn Turtle goes into the winners column, joining many other Vtech Seal recipients. From the outset testers liked the design of this teaching toy. The turtle’s face is friendly and the color is soothing. While there are a lot of sound effects and music with catchy melodies playing concurrently, the result isn’t cacophonous, plus it has two volume settings. There are several settings that teach to different developmental levels. A younger child can start learning how to say numbers and recognizing their corresponding numerals. An older child can practice addition and subtraction. Even when a child doesnt answer correctly or takes too long, the cheerful toy gives an encouraging remark and offers another try at it. There’s even a Spanish numbers portion. The turtle toy uses colors, patterns, visual aids and spoken cues for direction. Along with all of these elements, the toy has children using fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
