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
Lightning McQueen is back and ready to show off his speed as he
competes against the world’s fastest racecars in the World Grand
Prix. Mater, Lightning’s best friend and number one fan, tags along
and is ready to cheer Lightning on every step of the way. But when
Mater meets a mysterious secret agent named Finn McMissile, he
ends up at the center of an international conspiracy. Is Mater in over
his head, or does he have what it takes to be a super spy?

Operation Oil Rig
Finn sneaks onto a mysterious oil rig. Help Finn
search the oil rig while avoiding the obstacles.
The rig is full of danger. Luckily, Finn has three
gadgets that you can use to help him stay out
of trouble: a bumper, a water gun, and a hook.
The bumper can push pipes and barrels out of
the way; the water gun can put out fires; and
the hook can pull Finn up so that he avoids
being spotted by the guards.
Use the elevators to move from floor to floor.
Flick the elevator up or down to move it. Only
one of the floors will lead you deeper inside
the oil rig. Choose the floor with the shape that
answers the question to advance. Guide Finn
to the right to choose a floor.

Sometimes, Finn will need to cross from one
structure to another. Help Finn cross the gap by
figuring out the distance between him and the
structure. First, touch the dots to connect them,
and make a path that leads to the star. Then,
look at the sequence of numbers on the ruler,
and find the number that comes next. Touch
the hook with the correct length to answer.
