The VTech’s MobiGo comes installed with the Touch & Learn Game pack which includes 4 games: Fantastic Forest, Shooting Gallery, Wild Fun and Ice Escape. For each included game, you get two modes of play – Easy or Difficult. You can download even more games by connecting the MobiGo to your computer using the included USB cable. The MobiGo’s system holds up to three downloaded games or you can store even more games using the MobiGo Game Storage cartridge (sold separately). In addition, you can purchase additional games featuring popular characters such as Dora, Disney’s Cars, Elmo, Chuggington, Toy Story 3, Mickey Mouse and much more!
I found the MobiGo perfect for little hands. Each side has rubberized hand grips, making it easy for young kids to hold. Unlike some other game systems, I love that there is no stylus with this handheld learning toy so there is nothing to lose! That is a big bonus for me! Game play involves using the touchscreen or the QWERTY keyboard. The QUERTY keyboard allows kids to learn both letter recognition while familiarizing themselves with the location of letters on a QWERTY keyboard.
Both my 3 year old and 5 year old enjoyed playing with the MobiGo. My 5 year old didn’t seem as challenged playing the included games as my 3 year old did, but that didn’t keep him from wanting to play with it. Although we haven’t yet tested out the additional games you can purchase for the system, it appears that those may prove to be more challenging for older kids. I do wish the system included a pause button for the games, however, the overall system is fantastic. I found the MobiGo to be a solid system in that it allows portable entertainment for kids, while proving to be educational at the same time.
