Dear Parent,
At VTech®, we know that every year, children are asking to play video games at younger and
younger ages. At the same time, we understand the hesitation of most parents to expose their
children to the inappropriate content of many popular video games. How can parents responsibly
allow their children to play these games, and still educate and entertain them in a healthy,
age-appropriate manner?
Our answer to this question is V.Smile® MotionTM Active Learning System! A big breakthrough for
junior gamers, V.Smile® MotionTM takes educational video gaming to a whole new level with a
motion-activated gaming system that engages both active minds and bodies.
V.Smile® MotionTM plugs directly into the TV to provide kids with a high-tech gaming experience
using thrilling, age-appropriate learning games and a motion-activated, intuitive wireless
controller. The V.Smile® MotionTM Active Learning System engages children with two modes of
play: the Learning Adventure - an exciting exploratory journey in which learning concepts are
seamlessly integrated, and the Learning Zone - a series of games designed to focus on specific
skills in a fun, engaging way. Each Smartridge™ game encourages active gaming while giving
kids’ minds a workout, too, as they learn basic math, reading, science, spelling and more.
At VTech®, we are proud to provide parents with a much-needed solution to the video game
dilemma, as well as another innovative way for children to learn while having fun. We
thank you for trusting VTech® with the important job of helping your child explore a new
world of learning!
Sincerely,
Julia Fitzgerald
Vice President, Marketing
Vtech Electronics, NA
