VTech | V.Smile Baby Mother Goose | V.Smile Baby Mother Goose Manual

Dear Parent,
At VTech®, we know that there is nothing more special than watching your baby discover
something new for the first time. These moments become even more rewarding when you
see your baby share and smile in the excitement of these important discoveries. That is why
VTech® created the V.Smile Baby™ Infant Development System, a unique grow-with-me
development system designed especially for the youngest learners aged 9 to 36 months. The
learning grows as your baby grows!
The V.Smile Baby™ Infant Development System combines a baby-friendly wireless activity
panel, age-appropriate curriculum, entertaining images, and fun early learning activities
into a unique experience for babies and parents to share together. The V.Smile Baby™ Infant
Development System engages even the littlest learner with three, grow-with-me play modes:
Play Time, Watch & Learn, and Learn & Explore. Babies go from playing with the activity
panel, to watching educational videos complete with baby sign language, to directing their
own play on the TV screen by choosing subjects they want to learn.
As part of the V.Smile Baby™ Infant Development System, VTech® offers a library of Baby
Smartridges based on popular children’s environments that engage and invite your baby
to play and discover. Each Baby Smartridge features a variety of learning activities, baby
sign language, ‘grow-with-me’ play, and lovable characters to guide your baby on a learning
journey.
At VTech®, we are proud to provide parents with a sensory-rich learning tool for their little
ones. Tapping into a baby’s natural curiosity, creativity and passion for learning, VTech®
makes every encounter an opportunity for discovery. We thank you for trusting VTech®
with the important job of helping your child grow.
Sincerely,
Julia Fitzgerald
Vice President, Marketing

Baby Sign Language – Mother Goose Animals
ACTIVITIES / CARE & MAINTENANCE / WARNING
This activity only appears in the Watch & Learn mode. Teach baby
to start talking with their hands. Research has proven that babies
who sign speak earlier, experience less frustration, and benefit
intellectually. Watch as Mary introduces signs for Mother Goose’s
animals including lamb, monkey, cat, fish and butterfly.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
1. Keep your V.Smile Baby™ clean by wiping it with a slightly damp cloth.
Never use solvents or abrasives.
2. Keep the unit out of direct sunlight and away from direct sources of heat.
3. Remove the batteries when not using it for an extended period of time.
4. Avoid dropping it. NEVER try to dismantle it.
5. Always keep the V.Smile Baby™ away from water.
WARNING
A very small percentage of the public, due to an existing condition, may
experience epileptic seizures or momentary loss of consciousness when
viewing certain types of flashing colors or patterns, especially on television.
While the V.Smile Baby™ Infant Development System does not contribute
to any additional risks, we do recommend that parents supervise their children
while they play games in front of a television. If your child experiences dizziness,
altered vision, disorientation, or convulsions, discontinue use immediately and
consult your physician.
Please note that focusing on a television screen at close range for a prolonged
period of time may cause fatigue or discomfort. We recommend that children
take a 15-minute break for every hour of play.

first turning the unit OFF, you may experience a malfunction. If this happens,
and the console does not respond to pressing the ON/OFF button, remove the
