blue I bought two of these for my girls and two for my sisters girls. they love them and they are fun. I have played around with them. These are tough little things my 3 yr old has thrown hers a few times and still working great. get some recharble battries if ur going to buy these.

Cher @ Mama's Money Savers I loved video games as a child and whenever I get a chance I love to play my Wii. I am one of those parents that love technology and can't wait to expose my children to it. My 3 year old, loves anything with batteries, if it lights up, makes music, or has buttons it is right up his alley. Well until now I thought he might be a little young for the responsibility of a video game system. I couldn't bear to spend[$] (and more when you buy the games and accessories) for something that he is too young for. I will say though he is a master at working my iPod Touch – he re-arranges and loads his games, watches movies, and even plays music on it!So when I heard about the VTech MobiGo I was skeptical that he might be too young for it (he just turned 3 in January) but I was secretly hoping he would love it so I could have my iPod Touch back! Well guess what, he loves it! After a day of playing it, he immediately figured out the game it came with and I think he actually understands how to play it.The MobiGo comes with one cartridge called the "Touch & Learn Game Pack." Within that game is actually six games. One game wants you to tap the number on the pull-out keyboard (like those fancy cell phones out there) that corresponds with the number on the floating duck. Another game wants to you pick which doesn't belong, you have to draw shapes with another, use critical thinking skills in a puzzle-like situation, use simple math and more! At first, yes he pushed buttons and touched the screen – yes it is touch screen! (Think of it as an iPod Touch for kids!) Then I noticed he understood what the games were requiring from him and he was trying. For example, the one game he just kept tapping the keyboard then he realized when the duck floating by had an "A" on it, he needed to find "A" on the keyboard.Aidan is doing so well and I love that he is learning and doesn't even realize it! He also thinks he is super cool and carries his MobiGo all over the house with him. I also will say that the rubber around it and size makes it quite durable as my 2 and 3 year old have been a little rough with it this week! I also can't wait for all the games to come out, not that Aidan is even close to being sick of this game, but now that I know he likes it, I want to encourage it and not let him get bored! I applaud VTech too for basically including the six games as not everyone can afford games right away and all the games included cover basic school skills in a fun way. This is definitely my favorite so far of our VTech toys and I love that it is touch screen since the buttons and control panel is not the easiest to grasp for a 3 year old. Now for an older child, the arrows are no problem and they probably prefer that because it makes it seem more grown up!Honestly I have yet to see a flaw with this system. My son absolutely loves it and it is so easy for him to use and hold in his little hands. It does require 4 "AA" batteries (not included) but I am using rechargeable batteries or you can purchase a AC/DC 9V 300mA adapter (or you might already have one from another toy!) Now Aidan is not so much into an actual computer yet, but when he is I love that I can hook up the MobiGo via USB and show him his scores to receive awards and extras! Overall, we do love this toy and with its durability and list of games I see it being a favorite for a long time!

Stephanie @ AndTwinsMake5 Just in time for summer vacation comes the Vtech MobiGo Touch and Learning System complete with a touch screen like mommy and daddy's iPhone and a Qwerty slide out keyboard just like big brother's cell phone. Better still, it's sturdy yet small and light design enable Mommy to fit one or two of these in her diaper bag or purse without sacrificing her favorite sunglasses and go to lipgloss.With a daughter who just turned 9 and twin sons who will be 2 in June, we were able to test the full range of fun a bit on this new Vtech portable gaming and learning system aimed at the 3-8 crowd.The verdict? We need more than one. We were sent this neat new system for review recently and it's hardly had an "off" moment since it's arrival. Once again this summer we will be road tripping to Colorado with the entire family of 7 and this time the Vtech MobiGo will be coming too. This has all the cool features kids covet from big people phones, with the added bonus of educational play including lovable characters.The touch screen makes the MobiGo super easy for even my "technically" too little twin boys to interact with this new system on a basic level. And while Mommy needs to turn it on and get them to the right game, once there they've actually gotten pretty good at sliding their finger across the screen to move objects and trace lines. Plus they adore typing on the slide in and out Qwerty keyboard (even though they aren't sure what it is they are doing quite yet). I can easily see them being Masters of MobiGo in another 6 months.My 9 year old picked up this system and began playing everything like an old pro. "technically" a touch too old, she has really enjoyed playing with it. In fact, she's been begging to bring it to a sleep over tonight to share the experience with her friends. Among activities on the various included MobiGo Touch & Learn cartridge, she's been reviewing math facts, playing the music games, and manipulating objects.The MobiGo is available in blue (as pictured) or pink and is priced at [$] It comes with a USB cable for downloading more games, takes 4 AA batteries, includes a jack for an AC adapter, a jack for headphones, and will be available at Toys R Us starting 6/7. Additional accessories can be purchased for the MobiGo including a game case and game cartridges priced at $19.99. Titles include: Toy Story 3, Disney Fairies, Ben 10, NASCAR, Shrek 4, Dora the Explorer, Super Hero Squad, and Mr. Men to name a few.

A Happy Hippy Mom I received a Vtech MobiGo for review a week ago and my son is LOVING it! He brings it with him everywhere! With any learning system the main object is keeping children engaged long enough to actually have them be able to absorb information. I believe Vtech has accomplished this with the MobiGo. Its a modern twist on education and the MobiGo brings it to life in a fun high tech way. Young minds can get their brain cells pumping with exciting familiar characters and sharpen their cognitive development, science concepts, letter names, visualization, memory, motor skills, and more. Come read my full review about the Vtech MobiGo Touch Learning System and while your there enter to win your very own MobiGo! [@]

Momoftwins I got 2 of these for my twin boys (4 years old) They absolutly love them. The games are educational and easy for them to use. it makes them feel like big kids, when they can touch the screen like and ipod. Keeps them busy and gives mom a rest! I would highly recommend this product and all the games and accesories.

shopwithmemama My son is 4 and my daughter is 2.5. We received the MobiGo (Blue) and my kids love it! It is not only eductational, but also so hands on. It has a touch screen (like Dad's Droid phone) and a little keypad too! The games are engaging and is constantly teaching your little ones things. I feel good when my little man is using/playing with this. Unlike the other handheld devices, this one gets two thumbs up from this mom :)



Disclosure:

I was sent the blue MobiGo to review and keep. These are my own, honest opinions about this product. My kids really like this product, thanks!

Jason's Mom My son is 2 and he loves this, he was always stealing my iphone but now he has his own touchscreen to learn on, it is very easy to use even for a 2 year old, he can pretty much do everything on his own, the games are easy to lose and I have yet to find a solution to keep them all in one place, I am looking forward to the new game storage cartidge that is coming out so we can put all the downloaded games from the website in it and take it with us, it is very durable my son has really put it to the test and it has held up great, would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a game system for a 2-6 year old.

Jennifer Leigh I love the touch screen and its interaction with the child. My son loves the game it came with and cannot wait for the release of new ones!

Proud Mommy I bought my 3 yr. old this toy and he loves it. He wants to play it literally everyday! I love that it is educational, keeps him thinking and he enjoys it. It has helped him to identify num, letters, shapes & eye hand cordnation. He now plays the 4-7 & 5-7 age levels. Overall I love this product but I just wish it had more games.
