The Roll and Learn Activity Suitcase from VTech Review and Giveaway

Disclosure - I received a product to review from VTech

Due to the nature of my blog, we sometimes have unopened cardboard boxes just sitting in the living room.  My kids are used to seeing them there, so they usually just ignore them.  Today I told them that I had a fun surprise for them, and they all eagerly gathered around to watch the unveiling.

This is what I pulled out - The Roll and Learn Activity Suitcase from VTech.

When Co saw what I was holding, he yelled, "Yea, yea, yea, me!" And he continued yelling it over and over again until I got it out of the packaging.

Bid was a little more reserved.  She just put her hands over her mouth and said, "Wow.  Can I keep it."  And luckily, the toy did not disappoint.

The Roll and Learn Activity Suitcase from VTech features

  • A front interactive activity panel 
    • light-up piano keys, 
    • a removable phone, 
    • fun dog character, 
    • spinning gears, 
    • sun and moon twisties 
    • number spinners
  •  2 modes of play- One makes all of the buttons on the front musical, and the other mode makes everything talk
  • Interaction in English and Spanish, 
    • first words, 
    • greetings, 
    •  modes of transportation
    • famous places
  • 25 melodies and sing-along songs - Co likes to put the buttons until his favorite comes on, so I haven't actually heard all 25.  I hear quick snatches of some of them and then all of a song that talks about traveling with his suitcase.
  • Shape Sorting Fun on front and back of suitcase
  • Suitcase Opens - At first Co did struggle with the opening and closing of the suitcase, and got a bit frustrated.  But now that he has figured it out, he has no problems at all.
  • Inside Panel with picture of travel accessories 
  • A Book that you can flip through (on inside)
  • A Place to store your own toys
  • Volume Control
Co seriously loves this thing.  He doesn't have the longest attention span, and he has spent hours playing with it.  I've never seen him like a toy so much.  And not just a few hours total, I'm talking hours at a time.

Even though it's a noisy toy, I appreciate that it doesn't just beep loudly and make annoying noises.  They really tried to make it educational and teach kids numbers, and words in different languages.

I also like that the toy opens, so one kid can play on one side, while the other kid can play on the other side.  This prevented quite a few fights that first day.

The thing that I love very most about this toy, is that even though it has pieces that are meant to come off during play. the kids can snap them right back on.  Even though Co is not even two, he doesn't have a problem putting the toys back in their proper place, and keeping things clean.  He actually thinks it's fun to clean up his mess.

To Buy - The Roll and Learn Activity Suitcase is suggested for kids ages 12-36 months, and retails for $36.99.  For more info and special deals, you can follow Vtech on Facebook and Vtech on Twitter.
