Switch & Go Dinos
It’s getting to the point where a toy has to have multiple personalities these days. VTech can spot a trend as well as anyone and Switch & Go Dinos does and excellent job as a transformational toy. The giant brachiosaurus walks and talks (when you child presses the right buttons eliciting one of 70 different sounds) and he morphs into a truck. This toy is targeted to a younger audience and VTech got it right by making the experience challenging but not too difficult to complete the transformations. When in truck mode the buttons turn the lights on and when you insert the driver he will talk. There is even a secondary toy, a smaller car and a flying Pterodactyl that can launch off the truck. Parents reported that the pieces were sturdy and the assembled units did not fall apart despite aggressive play. The play pattern was seen as promoting creativity, imagination and hand/eye coordination.
