VTech Expands Its Switch & Go Dinos Line

Jagger for blogVTech has added to its evolving line of Switch & Go Dinos. The new toys combine two of kids’ classic playthings—dinosaurs and vehicles—with a transformation feature and motion-activated lights and sounds.

The new Switch & Go Dinos are suitable for kids ages 3 to 8, and available at www.vtechkids.com, amazon.com, target.com, toysrus.com, and walmart.com. Meanwhile, parents can visit VTech’s Facebook page for a chance to win a Switch & Go Dino.

Some of the newer dinosaurs include:

Jagger the T-Rex: Transforms from a construction vehicle with movable crane to a Tyrannosaurus Rex in a few simple steps. Jagger features voice recognition technology, a crane mode with 360-degree, rotatable, extending crane; a voice-activated launcher-fired drill bit; animated dinosaur eyes; and more.

Blister the Velociraptor: Transforms from a helicopter to a Velociraptor. The helicopter mode has a button-controlled spinning propeller, bright LED searchlight, and a launcher-fired rescue claw. In dinosaur mode, Blister emits realistic dinosaur sounds and phrases.

SkySlicer the Allosaurus: Transforms from a jet plane into a Allosaurus. The jet plane mode lets kids choose their pilot on a 1.5-inch LCD screen, and also makes realistic jet plane sound effects. Meanwhile, the dinosaur mode includes animated eyes and realistic dinosaur sounds.
