VTech Switch & Go Dinos {Review} & Contest!

The boys and I recently had a chance to check out two of the new VTech Switch & Go Dinos.  Naturally the boys were super excited when I told them that they had some new toys coming and they were thrilled when the box finally came!  Reece immediately declared that Brok the Brachiosaurus ™ was now his and that Bryce could have the Attila the Ankylosaurus ™ – the funny thing is – Bryce went right along with it!  Hey!  Whatever works!

Both Dinos have become new favorites with the boys.  I’ve really enjoyed watching them play together and especially watching Reece take his role as older brother very seriously by helping Bryce make the transformations correctly :)  The Dinos are very durable and I love the educational component as well!  Reece and Bryce have always loved dinosaurs and these Switch & Go Dinos take it to the next level!  
Bryce has been “allowed” to play with Brok too and he loves loading him up with other cars and trains and having Brok tote the whole crew around :) 

Meet Brok the Brachiosaurus ™:

Easygoing and rugged, with the personality to reflect it, Brok the Brachiosaurus is the ultimate dinosaur vehicle!  Equipped with a motorized neck and legs that move up and down while rolling across the floor, Brok the Brachiosaurus is pretty easygoing, but don’t get on his bad side! 

With the press of the action button, Brok will make dramatic dinosaur sounds, and say more than 40 phrases like, “I’m large and in charge!” or an educational fact, including, “The name Brachiosaurus means arm-lizard.” Boys can customize Brok by selecting from six animated dinosaur faces on the LCD screen.
Within 6-7 simple steps, Brok easily transforms into a vehicle. In this form, Brok can interact with other Switch & Go dinosaur vehicles, as he serves as a car carrier equipped with a launch pad to send vehicles flying. Brok also comes with an included smaller race car that launches a flying dinosaur when sent down his ramp. In this mode, Brok makes vehicle sounds, and says up to 30 expressions like, “Keep on truckin’,” and, “Saddle up partner,” among others. Six animated driver faces are available for customization.

Meet Attila the Ankylosaurus ™:

The dino who never backs down from a fight, Attila the Ankylosaurus can get you out of any jam!  In the dinosaur mode Attila comes equipped with a tail that swings back and forth with the press of a button, and can be heard making dramatic dinosaur sounds and sharing 30 fun expressions, like, “I’m an herbivore. I chow down on plants” and, “I’m built like a tank with armor all over my head, back, and sides.”  

Boys can customize Attila by selecting from four animated dinosaur faces on the LCD screen.  In 5-6 steps, Attila transforms into a construction vehicle complete with a movable crane. Included are two accessories that plug into the crane: a wrecking ball and a tow hook. An accessory truck is also provided, which doubles as spikes and armor in dinosaur mode. These accessories, together with Attila the construction vehicle, create a realistic construction set for boys. In vehicle mode, Attila makes several sounds and yells up to 30 phrases, like, “I’m a one man wrecking machine,” and, “Yahoo!” Boys can customize the driver in the Attila vehicle by choosing from four animated faces.

This amazing product combines two popular toys – dinosaurs and vehicles – and creates a really unique play experience for kids.  There are seven collectible toys and each toy transforms from a dinosaur to a vehicle and back again with just a few simple steps. The Dinos come equipped with a customizable LCD screen and voices, vehicle sound effects as well as educational dinosaur facts.  The toys range in price from $15.99-$49.99 which makes these toys an affordable choice.  You can find these toys at vtech.com and at major retailers.
