VTech Chuggington Laptop Review + Giveaway

Evan has been out of 3 year old preschool since May and I've been working with him on different activities to keep everything that he learned fresh. He does best when learning is turned into a game and I'm always amazed at what he absorbs. I was thrilled when a VTech Chuggington Laptop showed up at our door.


Vtech Chuggington Laptop. Calling all chuggers! Put your wheels to the rails and chug your way through games that teach letters, numbers, words, counting, and more on the Chuggington Traintastic Laptop from VTech. Children ages 3 and older will have fun with their favorite characters from Chuggington as they choose from 40 learning activities. Your child can play as one of their favorite trainees in Adventure Mode, where they'll earn badges for proving their skills. Or if your child wishes, they can also play in Exploration Mode where they can learn about letters and numbers at their own pace. With the Chuggington Traintastic Laptop, your child can be a trainee, too!

Features:
  • 40 learning activities that teach letters, alphabetical order, letter case, words, numbers, number order, counting, shapes, memory, matching, and more
  • Choose from 5 modes: Letters, Numbers, Logic & Games, Exploration Mode, and Adventure
  • Exploration Mode gives kids the freedom to learn as they explore the letters and numbers
  • Adventure Mode allows kids to play the game as one of their favorite characters
  • Features the favorite Chuggington characters including the trainees Wilson, Brewster, and Koko
  • For ages 3+

The box arrived pretty late one night and Evan immediately spotted it in the kitchen the next morning. He was so excited and was dancing around while I opened the box. He will be 4 next month and really didn't need any instructions as to how to play it.

The graphics are not that great and the screen is tiny. If you're inside at night with an overhead light, you sometimes have to get really close to the screen to see it because there is a little glare. With that being said, Evan really does enjoy playing with the laptop and has even taken it to my mom's house several times.

By turning Wilson, you can choose between the five different modes - Adventure, Exploration, Language, Numbers, and Games.  Evan switches modes pretty often which helps him keep many of his skills fresh in his mind.

Many of the games give you a choice to either use the arrows and select keys or the numbers and alphabet on the keypad. As a mom, I appreciate the fact that it also has a volume control!

I love that the VTech Chuggington Laptop is making learning fun for Evan. Isabella is obviously too young to know how to play the games, but she loves pushing the buttons and watching the screen.

I want this for my 15 month grandson. He loves using the iPad to do video chats with me but he likes to push the buttons and they sign off and have to call back. His dad is a computer geek by profession and with so many computers in the house, it would be nice for him to have one he is allowed to play with.
