I am always looking for toys that are fun and educational. This holiday season I also focused on toys that were safe and long lasting as I was tired of the product recalls and poor construction. For my 3-year-old son I chose the VTech Fly and Learn Globe to give him an interactive and educational toy to play with. At first glance this globe is very colorful and bright, which appealed to my son immediately. He then began to explore the different buttons and features offered. For a toddler, this means not paying attention to anything educational, but just making sounds and making the plane fly.
Once he settled down a bit, we tried the different features. He especially liked learning about animals and the songs. I feel that there are still so many features about this toy we have not exhausted and we will get years of fun play out of this toy. I recommend this for children 2.5 years and up.
