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®, a revolutionary
way to make learning fun with touch!
MobiGo® is the next generation of learning. Kids can control how they play,
and develop the skills of using touch applications. As kids tap, flick, spin, and
drag their way through exciting learning games, they’ll experience the same
technology and fun as parents do with their touch-screen devices.
When playing with MobiGo®, kids can look at, listen to and touch 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®.
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®

INTRODUCTION
Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe
are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King
Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure.
Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect
cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
INTRODUCTION / GETTING STARTED
GETTING STARTED
Insert the Cartridge
Make sure the unit is turned off. Insert the MobiGo® cartridge with the
label side facing up, and push it until it clicks into place. Press the ON
button to turn on MobiGo®.
User Profile
Personalize your MobiGo® by entering your name and creating a user
profile. The profile stores your progress and high score information, which
can then be uploaded to the web. However, only one user profile can be
stored at a time. Other users can still play the MobiGo® by touching the
guest icon on the profile screen, but their records will not be saved.
To select your user profile, touch your name on the profile screen. To
change the profile name, touch the ABC button.
Basic Operation
The easiest and most common way to play with your MobiGo® is by using
the touch screen. However, there are also a few important hard keys that
you’ll need to use from time to time.

WARNING
A very small percentage of the public, due to an existing
condition, may experience epileptic seizures or momentary loss
of consciousness when viewing certain types of flashing colors
or patterns. While 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 use immediately and consult your physician. Please
note that focusing on an LCD screen at close range and handling
directional pad 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.
WARNING: All packing materials, such as tape, plastic sheets, packaging
locks and tags are not part of this toy, and should be
discarded for your child’s safety.
ATTENTION Pour la sécurité de votre enfant, débarrassez-vous de tous
les produits d’emballage tels que rubans adhésifs, feuilles
de plastique, attaches et étiquettes. Ils ne font pas partie
du jouet.
