We at VTech understand that a child's needs and abilities change as they grow and with
that in mind we can develop our toys to teach and entertain at just the right level. Babies
need toys that will stimulate their interest in different textures, sounds and colours,
while on-the-go toddlers and pre-schoolers want more interactive toys to develop
their imaginations and encourage their language development. As they progress to
more challenging curriculum at school, VTech keeps pace with a wide variety of cool,
aspirational and interesting computers for learning. Every toy is unique and helps your
child develop in different ways for the best all-round learning.
