VTech Winnie the Pooh Play 'n Learn Laptop
Advantages: Great for learning, excellent detail and design
The v tech Winnie the pooh laptop was actually bought by my mam for my daughter a few weeks ago. My daughter had seen it on an outing and loving all things Winnie the pooh she just had to have it. My mam was a tad reluctant to buy it as she thought it may have been a little bit too old for my daughter to use but we are now both glad that she did.
The laptop is basically styled like a usual adult laptop. It is bright yellow on the top and purple underneath. It has a thick purple handle on the top so that it can be easily carried. The laptop is easily opened by the small green button on the front. Once opened there are 4 3D characters that stand up. These are piglet, tigger, roo and Winnie the pooh. There is an on off switch in the shape of a bumblebee and a keyboard full of letters and pictures. The laptop is very attractive and looks fun and exciting.
The top part of the laptop contains a coloured picture of the Winnie the pooh characters in a classroom. This part also contains the screen.
There are many different activities that can be played.
This category helps the child learn their ABC. Pooh will tell the child to select a letter. When the child has chosen then pooh will say the letter out loud.
In this category Winnie will give 2 letters on the screen. The child then has to select the letter that comes after the 2 selected.
What is it:
In this section pooh will show you a picture and a few words will appear under the picture, once the right word matches the picture the child must press the arrow button.
In this section the child must copy off Winnie and spell a word that he has chosen.
In this category Winnie asks you to count along with him and identify how many items are on the screen you can tell him the answer by pressing the correct number.
Addition and subtracting:
In this section the child can learn to add and subtract basic sums.
More or less:
In this category some characters will appear on the screen with a number of items and Winnie will ask you to identify which character has more or less items that the others. You can use the 3d characters for this game to select the right one.
Odd one out:
In this category we see some of the characters dancing, we have to watch closely and see which character is the odd one out by doing a different dance move than the rest of the gang. Again the 3d characters can be used here to select the correct answer.
In this game piglet likes to follow butterfly's. Pooh will give u 3 letters on screen then take them away you must enter the letter in and each one you get correct, piglet will catch another butterfly.
In this game you have to press the arrow button to match up a shadow to a picture.
This is the final category of games available and in this one the child gets to listen to some music. Each letter on the keyboard will play a different song. You can see the characters on the screen dancing to the music.
Altogether there are 11 different activities and 26 different melodies to chose from. There is also a sound setter in the laptop so that you can play a quieter mode if you wish.
The age range:
For this laptop the age range is 3 years plus. I think this is very acceptable as the activities would definitely be a little bit difficult for a younger child.
The price of this laptop is £30.00.
I am very impressed with the play and learn laptop. I love toys that try and make learning fun, as there are too many toys these days that don't contain any learning ability. With this one you play games with pooh and the gang as well as learning the important basics of ABC and number. The laptop really is fantastic and I would definitely count it as one of the best things my daughter has been bought. She loves playing with it and is slowly recognising how the games work and what is needed to complete them.
I am also very impressed to how the laptop is made. There is a lot of detail gone into the design to make it fun and exciting for younger children. The laptop is made from a strong plastic.
I would definitely recommend this learning toy to any parent as it really does help with development.
Summary: This is a really great learning toy for children aged 3 and above
