High-Tech Care Bears

VTech Electronics, creators of the electronic learning category, have developed the first of its kind new TV Learning System - V.Smile. The exciting technology turns game time into brain time by combining a video game platform and educational content in a system that connects directly to the television. Children ages 3-to-7 years old play a variety of entertaining educational games on cartridges that help teach essential curricula such as language, math and science through engaging gameplay. Children navigate each game by using a hand-held joystick with oversized buttons and a feature that allows the joystick to be switched for both right-handed and left-handed players. The Care Bears cartridge will feature popular Care Bear characters to help guide children through various age-appropriate skill levels and developmental activities.
