Recently, I took some of the kids to my local Walmart so that we could check out some of the year's hottest toys. Even when my oldest was a baby, I would take her to the store to see what held her interest, and I continued this practice with the rest of the gang. Of course, now they're all very vebal, but I still like to get an idea of what they like so that I have an idea of what we're in for. And honestly, it's always fun to be surrounded by toys!
My little guy just loves Legos, but he has always been fascinated by the newest gadgets too, and he couldn't wait to try the new VTech Smartwatch.
The watch comes in several colors, but since blue is his favorite color, that's the one he chose. While we were there, we spotted some other popular toys, including the new Snow Globe Elsa Doll. My little Diva thought this was super cute.
Of course, we had to stop and look at all of the holiday decorations too. Can you see the little pink Christmas tree? My little Diva wants to get that for her room and decorate it with pink and black ornaments -- still not sure about that, but it would be cute!
When we got home, the first thing we did was charge the battery on the watch. A USB cable is included, and all you have to do is plug it into your computer for three hours before using the watch for the first time. After that, you're good to go!
The Smartwatch comes with four educational games, and you can download more from the VTech site. Your child can also personalize the watch by choosing from over 50 unique displays for the watch's face, including both analog and digital. My son needs to work on learning to tell time, so we chose the analog option for now.
My little guy's favorite part about the watch is that it takes pictures and videos. He sees his older siblings taking pictures with their smart phones, and he feels like a big kid now! He even got one of the fur boys to pose for a picture, even if it's slightly blurry here.
I like that the watch is kid proof, and unlike other electronics, I'm not worried about him breaking it!
Have you started your shopping yet? Do you think the kids on your list would like the VTech watch? I know it's still early, but planning ahead helps me stay a little bit calmer, especially when it comes to reading five Christmas lists!
Thanks so much for visiting. Have a super day!
