Dear Parent,
At VTech®, we know how much you enjoy staying on top of the hottest trends
and having the most high-tech gadgets around. We also know that your kids
feel the same way. With that in mind, we developed MobiGo®2, a revolutionary
way to make learning fun with touch, motion, and sound!
MobiGo® 2 is the next generation of learning. Kids can control how they play,
and develop their skills using touch screen and motion applications. As kids tap,
flick, turn, and tilt their way through exciting learning games, they’ll experience
the same technology and fun as parents do with their high-tech devices.
When playing with MobiGo® 2, kids can look at, listen to, and interact with the
screen wherever they go to discover a world of fun, while developing knowledge
of numbers, letters, spelling, and music which we know is important to you.
Learning on the go is now easier than ever with MobiGo® 2.
At VTech®, we are dedicated to helping your children uncover their talents.
We thank you for your trust in our products that encourage active minds
through imaginative play.
Sincerely,
Your friends at VTech®

the MobiGo® Touch Learning System does not contribute to any
additional risks, we do recommend that parents supervise their
children while they play video games. If your child experiences
dizziness, altered vision, disorientation, or convulsions, discontinue

on an LCD screen at close range and handling video game controls
for a prolonged period of time may cause fatigue or discomfort. We
recommend that children take a 15 minute break for every hour of play.
