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®
