Toot-Toot Friends: A group of friends with tons of interaction and imagination.
The Toot-Toot Friends characters and playsets by VTech stand out with with their highlight on cause&effect relationship, language, daily life and importantly, fine motor skills. Pressing the light-up button on each character, they introduce themselves, what they like to do and sing 2 sing-along songs.
Placing the characters on the “MagicPoint” locations found on every accessory (which, in addition to the ones that come with the characters, can be bought separately to extend the experience) causes the characters to interact with that accessory in various ways such as fun phrases, motion, lights and more.
For children 12 months and up, the Toot-Toot Friends are a gang of several characters, all with their own primary accessories. For example, Luca loves his bouncy plane, Lizzie rides her pony, Cici has a tricycle and adores cute animals, Dawn likes painting and rides in her wagon all the time, Jackson dreams of being a famous race driver, Maggie is a smart cowgirl with her rocking horse, Dylan is a super skateboarder and Jacob really cares about safety. Their vehicles also have Magic Points which activate as soon as the characters are placed on them.
The Helpful Hospital playset comes with its own character, Dr. Doug and 3 Magic Points. You can use the lift to go up and down stairs, spin the eye exam machine, adjust the height measurer and slide the scale lever. As you place Dr.Doug and one of the other friends in the seats, you can hear them chat. Dr.Doug can also interact with all accessories and playsets just like all other characters.
The Busy Sounds Discovery Home has Miss Norah, a dog and 7 Magic Points. It features over 40 melodies, songs and phrases. Like the hospital, this set also comes with a lift that goes up and down between floors and a MagicChat feature that allows the characters to speak and sing. All the toys need 3xAAA batteries to run and they come included in the pack.
VTech is the creator of the Electronic Learning Products category and many award-winning products such as InnoTab, Toot-Toot and Kidizoom. The company also carries two similar themes in the VTech Baby Toot-Toot line: Drivers and Animals; both of which have similar features with the vehicles and animals responding to “SmartPoints” on the tracks.
