CHICAGO, Nov. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VTech's successful introduction of Switch and Go Dinos, a new line of transforming Dinosaur/Vehicles continues to evolve with kids' fun in mind. Following eight toy awards and top toys for the holidays lists received since the introduction of the range in May 2012 from Parents Magazine, Toys R' Us and The National Parenting Center to name a few. VTech has continued to invest in Dino fun for kids ages 3-8 announcing today a new website packed with hands-on, interactive fun for Dino-Mad kids called "VTech's Dino Den".
The site, which launched this week, will take kids' passion for dinosaurs even further with Virtual Reality Activities, Coloring Pages, and in 2013, a mind-blowing Dino App that delivers kids "Augmented Reality" where their own Dino drawings will come to life before their eyes! With more than 30 years experience in developing kids' educational products, VTech knows it is important to offer children the chance to learn more in a fun environment, and so have created a "Dinosaur Museum" within VTech's Dino Den which contains easy-to-learn Dino facts for future paleontologists.
"Switch & Go Dinos combine two favorite boys' toys, Dinosaurs and Vehicles, into one great play experience for kids ages 3-8. They've received eight awards since the launch in May 2012, and continue to be listed on top toy lists for the Holidays. The Dinos make for a perfect kids' gift this Holiday Season," said William To, President of VTech Electronics North America. "And now VTech is giving kids even more Dino-fun for free in time for the Holidays. VTech's Dino Den is packed with Dino facts, fun, entertainment and hands-on activities that will keep kids engaged in learning fun."
