Dear Parent,
At VTech®, we know that in order to effectively reach kids, today’s learning tools
have to be plugged into the fast-paced world around them. That’s why we
created the Grade School Learning Series – an engaging set of stylized,
interactive computers specially designed to get grade-school kids up to speed
with their fast-paced, tech-savvy world.
Every product in the Grade School Learning Series covers a wide range of school
basics – math, language, social studies, science, and even an intro to basic
Spanish, French and German. Activities are presented in a fast-paced,
arcade-game style that kids will recognize and enjoy. Each learning machine
is loaded with hi-tech features such as word processors, electronic address books,
plug-in accessories, and PC uplinks – tools that go hand-in-hand with the way
kids learn, play and use information.
As a bonus, each Grade School Learning product includes a free 1-year
membership to www.planetvtech.com. Here kids can play, learn and hang out,
all within a safe and secure web environment that’s fun for play and approved
by Mom.
With the Grade School Learning Series, kids can access a way to learn that
closely matches the way they already live and play. We thank you for trusting
VTech® with the important job of helping your child learn and succeed. We
hope to help your child discover that “It’s Cool to Be Smart!”
Sincerely,
Julia Fitzgerald

While the Cyber Spy Notebook™ does not contribute to any additional
risks, we do recommend that parents supervise their children while
they play games. If your child experiences dizziness, altered vision,
disorientation, or convulsions, discontinue use immediately and consult
your physician.
Please note that focusing on a screen at close range and handling a
keyboard for a prolonged period of time may cause fatigue or discomfort.
We recommend that children take a 15 minutes break for every hour of play.
TROUBLESHOOTING
