Oregon Scientific’s product line-up for this year, shown for the first time last week at the American International Toy Fair in New York City, ranges from the latest action-capturing technology to new additions to the company’s SmartGlobe line.
These new electronic learning products include the ATC GeckoHD, a versatile and durable pocket-sized video camera. Kids can clip the camera on themselves using the included wrist strap and capture the world around them. Three changeable camera covers and an optional waterproof casing are also available.
The new SmartGlobe Infinity offers multiple themes, includes a wireless talking Smart Pen, and teaches countries, capitals, population, history, and more. By replacing the globe with a SmartGlobe Theme Globe, kids can explore themes such as Mysterious World or the Stars. Meanwhile, the Smart Pen can record notes with its built-in voice recording function.
The economical SmartGlobe Discovery features 19 activities and games, and provides hours of educational entertainment about planet Earth. Kids can explore the continents and compare countries to learn about populations, areas, and more. Users can then test their knowledge with the Ultimate Challenge activity.
