Dear Parent,
At VTech®, we know how important the first day of school is for your
child. To help prepare preschoolers for this important event, VTech® has
developed the Preschool Learning™ series of interactive toys.
Preschool Learning™ features fun characters and inviting school themes
that use technology to capture a child’s attention and teach important
preschool skills like spelling, counting and the alphabet. These vital skills
are taught in a way that's both fun and highly engaging to maintain a
child's interest. Children will also be introduced to fun school subjects
such as art class, music class and even recess! With Preschool Learning™,
learning is fun from day one!
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®

Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a VTechTM Kidiminiz pet!
The VTechTM Kidiminiz pets are fun, interactive friends! Show them
their favorite food and they will follow it around, or clap your hands
to make them sing and dance. You can also play great mini games.
When one Kidiminiz pet meets another, they will talk, sing and dance
together. Choose different combinations of eyes, noses and mouths
to change their facial expressions. They can also be used as an alarm
clock: just set the time and wake up to fun music.
