V Smile - A Review of V Smile Vtech

5 stars for VSmile

V. Smile Console and Games

I have three children, all who have played the V. Smile at one point in time. My oldest, now 7 years old, got the gaming console as a Christmas gift when she was 4. We have not had to replace one single part in all that time. Considering it has been through her and her two sisters, that's what I call made to last!

In light of the great prices I am seeing in the ads lately, I figured I would write a review on the V. Smile. If you are anything like me, an inexpensive price usually equals an inexpensive toy. However, if you are considering buying the game system for a little one in your life, I urge you to get it. I credit a lot of what my kids have learned to the educational games. And I love that I never have to worry about a game being inappropriate or violent for any age.

My family has a plethora of games, ranging in age level from 4 all the way up to 8, and all of the games are fun and educational. My kids often beg me to plug the system in so they can play, even my 7 year old that has a Nintendo DS Lite. A few of the available titles include characters such as Cinderella, Lightening McQueen, The Lion King, The Backyardigans, The Care Bears, Elmo, Blue from Blue's Clues, and Diego.

Your young one might have difficulty working the controller at first, but after a few times of sitting together and coaching him through the movements and the ideas behind each game, he will be a pro.

As a final note, I would like to add that if you plan on buying the game system, you should invest in the plug that goes with it. The only bad thing I noticed about the console is that it burns through a set of batteries very quickly. I got my plug for less than $10 and it has saved me a lot of money and heartache resulting from dead batteries.

      I bought my children the V-Tech and baby v-tech consules. Excellent learning devices and games without the violence. Good hub.

      My 5 year old loves his V Smile, probably one of the best toys he's ever got.
