NEW YORK, February 21, 2020 -- Today VTech® announced the introduction of the new Go! Go! Cory Carson™ toy line, based on the animated preschool series, available on Netflix. Inspired by VTech’s award-winning Go! Go! Smart Wheels® line, Go! Go! Cory Carson follows the adventures of kid car Cory Carson, his family and his friends in Bumperton Hills as they navigate the winding roads of childhood. The new toy line is on display at the 2020 North American International Toy Fair®.
“Animation has brought our Go! Go! Smart Wheels line to life in a brand-new way.” said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. “Now, we get to bring the world of Go! Go! Cory Carson to kids with fun new toys featuring characters and locations they will recognize from the show.”
The new Go! Go! Cory Carson toy line (2 years and up) lets kids create their own adventures with Cory and his friends, with vehicles based on the show’s characters, and playsets inspired by popular scenes from the show, such as going on a rescue mission at Freddie’s Firehouse. The products offer the engaging play experiences Go! Go! Smart Wheels toys are known for, using technology that brings vehicles to life with fun sounds, phrases and songs, and deliver multi-sensory learning to maximize fun. Playtime is made even more exciting by encouraging pretend play tied to the Go! Go! Cory Carson show.
The Go! Go! Cory Carson line is debuting at Toy Fair and will be available starting in March, exclusively at Target. Additional playsets and vehicles will be launching this fall at retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.vtechkids.com/corycarson. Highlights from the line include:
