In celebration of the release of iTikes, the new interactive line of pre-school toys from Little Tikes, the iTikes Discover Tour hits the open road on a U.S. bus tour of parks, playgrounds, and special events. On a mission to instill in children a love of learning, the iTikes Discover Tour is an i-tacular mobile event filled with fun activities for the whole family including a 10-foot musical keyboard where kids can learn music theory, sight reading, and pitch training; a 17-ft inflatable microscope through which families can learn about plants, fibers, and insects; an interior terrain on which everyone can explore and discover; and a photo booth.

The iTikes Discover Tour makes its debut at the L.A. County Fair in Pomona, Calif., from September 1 to 5, followed by stops at the Mountain View Art and Wine Festival in Northern California from Sept 8 to 9, and the Utah State Fair in Salt Lake City from September 13 to 15.
