Dear Parent:
Ever notice the look on your baby’s face when they learn something
new through their own discovery? These self-accomplished
moments are a parent’s greatest reward. To help fulfill them, VTech®
created the Smart Start® series of toys.
These unique interactive learning toys directly respond to what
children do naturally - play! Using innovative technology, these
toys react to baby’s interactions, making each play experience fun
and unique as they learn age-appropriate concepts like first words,
numbers, shapes, colors and music. More importantly, VTech®’s
Smart Start® toys develop baby’s mental and physical abilities by
inspiring, engaging and teaching.
At VTech®, we know that a child has the ability to do great things.
That’s why all of our electronic learning products are uniquely
designed to develop a child’s mind and allow them to learn to the
best of their ability. We thank you for trusting VTech® with the
important job of helping your child learn and grow!
Sincerely,
Your Friends at VTech®
