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 gamtyou feel confident in allowing your childen to play these
games, and still educate and entertain them in a healthy, age-appropriate
manner?
Our solution to this on-going debate is the V.SMILE™ TV Learning System
– a unique video game system created especially for children aged 3 to 7.
The V.SMILE™ TV Learning System combines a kid-friendly design,
age-appropriate curriculum, entertaining graphics, and fun game play into
a unique experience that your child will love and you can support. The
V.SMILE™ TV Learning System engages your child 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 school skills in a fun, engaging way. Both of these
educational modes offer your child hours of learning fun.
As part of the V.SMILE™ TV Learning System, VTech® offers a library of
game Smartridges™ based on popular children’s characters that engage and
encourage your child to play while learning. The library is organized into
three levels of educational play – Early Learners (ages 3-5), Junior Thinkers
(ages 4-6) and Master Minds (ages 6-8) – so that the educational content of
the system grows with your child.
At VTech®, we are proud to provide you with a much-needed solution to the
video game dilemma, as well as another innovative way for your child 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,
Your Friends at VTech®
