With Easter hopping up next Sunday, you are probably beginning to think about what you are going to put in those baskets for your cute little bunnies. I know every year I purchase way too much candy to try and add a variety of goodies to the sugary mix. And if you are thinking about handing out leftover pastel-colored candy for Halloween, because you have bags of it leftover– then you are guilty of going overboard as well! Instead of loading up on several different types of chocolates and candies this year, why not fill the Easter basket with fun educational gifts and cut down on the sweet stuff? VTech has a great collection of educational Easter basket fillers to create a memorable “toy-tastic” basket that will get your kids bouncing with joy…not sugar.
A few popular VTech toys, which are small enough to fit in a basket and make excellent fun Easter basket fillers are:
Easter Basket Fillers
Go! Go! Smart Wheels Convertible (Ages 1-5 years; MSRP: $7.99)
Go. Go. Smart Wheels Convertible by VTech is perfectly sized for little hands! The electronic convertible will entertain your child with a light-up driver (named Carson) button that when activated triggers 3 sing-along songs and fun sounds. The adorable tiny vehicle (can fit in the palm of your hand) also interacts with Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets using SmartPoint. The toy encourages language development, motor skills, and imaginative play. It also teaches the letter “C” and the name of the vehicle.
If you plan on purchasing this adorable toy don’t forget the batteries! It requires 2 AAA batteries! The batteries included are for demo purposes only and won’t last long.
Check out VTechKids.com for the full line of Go! Go! Smart Wheels!
Switch & Go Dinos Turbo SPUR (Ages 3-8 years; MSRP: $9.99)
Roar! Spur the Stegosaurus rips and roars with over 25 wild sounds and phrases! He easily transforms from a cool spikey dino into a fast vehicle in a few easy steps! Rev-up his wheels (built in fly-wheel) and watch him race across the floor over 20 feet! Spur may be small in size, but is always armored for battle and ready to go with his big spikes on his back and powerful tail that swings and sways. Kids will learn interesting dinosaur facts about his unique features, name and diet when they press the talk button, such as “the name Stegosaurus means covered lizard” and “my plates don’t just look good they keep me safe too.”
Spur requires 1 AAA battery that is included for demo purposes only. Pick up a pack of batteries, because your kid is going to want to play hours with this 2-in-1 toy! Spur also is compatible with the launch vehicle from Turbo launcher playsets.
Other Switch & Go Dinos Turbo toys include Dart the Triceratops, Zipp the T-Rex, Fray the Ankylosaurus, Cruz the Spinosaurus and Spinner the Stygimoloch.
VTech InnoTab Software Cartridges

Both games are completely compatible with all the InnoTab systems. Not sure what the Innotab has to offer?
