NEW YORK, February 23, 2020 -- Today VTech® announced the introduction of Switch & Go™, a cool new toy line that combines two favorite kids’ themes – dinosaurs and vehicles. From a T-Rex Truck to a Velociraptor Helicopter, Switch & Go offers a unique, kid-friendly transformation feature, exciting sounds and motion-activated lights for an action-packed, prehistoric play experience. The new line is on display at the 2020 North American International Toy Fair®.
“Kids are going to love our new action-packed Switch & Go line,” said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. “Dinosaurs and vehicles are classic themes that kids love, and we’ve made them even more fun by adding lights, sounds and awesome transformations!”
Whether kids want to play with a fierce dinosaur or a cool vehicle, they can easily transform these 2-in-1 Switch & Go toys. The toys are roaring to go with wild phrases and sounds depending on the mode they are in and feature LED lights or animated screens to enhance imaginative play. Some Switch & Go toys feature additional activations such as spinning rotor blades or search lights for even more fun and adventure.
The Switch & Go line is recommended for ages 4 years and up and will be available in the fall. For more information, visit www.vtechkids.com. Highlights from the line include:
