VTech Switch & Go Dinos
This last Fall, my boys discovered VTech Switch & Go Dinos. My 7 year old got one for his birthday and then both the boys got multiple Dinos for Christmas including Brok the Brachiosaurus.
Vtech Switch & Go Dinos are a dinosaur and vehicle in one. Made for kids ages 3-8, they transform from one vehicle to a super scary dinosaur and then back again. Each dino comes equipped with sound and plenty of cool features.
My boys were thrilled to find out that VTech recently came out with an awesome new assortment of Dinos, including Jagger the T-Rex. After getting the chance to play with Jagger and some of the other new dinos in our home, I’ll tell you that Jagger is definitely special!
Jagger the T-Rex transforms from a Tyrannosaurus Rex to a Construction Crane. He’s no small t-rex and stands at 16″ high. It only takes a few simple steps and we had him figured out in a matter of about 5 minutes on how he could transform from dino to crane.
One really cool feature is that Jagger has voice commands and responds to them. With the simple push of a button, Jagger says a command. When you repeat the command, he does responds to the command and does something special. Jagger comes with a list of commands and each time you press the command button, he says a new command that you can repeat. This is a nice feature for smaller kids because he will say the command for you to repeat. He isn’t able to just respond to any command at any given time though, you have to repeat the command that he says. If you are looking for a specific command, you have to cycle through the commands and hear him say it first. You do need to talk very clearly for him to respond to voice commands and sometimes my 5 year old was frustrated at first when Jagger wouldn’t respond. It was an easy fix as I told my 5 year old that he had to talk loud, slow and clear and Jagger would respond.
When Jagger transforms into a construction crane, his commands change as he is now a crane. This essentially makes for 2 toys in one which actually makes for more playtime. The LCD screen which acts as Jagger’s eyes are animated and add to the overall fun of the toy. On top of the 24 voice commands, Jagger has over 90 sounds and phrases. If Jagger weren’t already cool enough, he has motorized actions that help him move forward, drive and even launch his drill across the room!
With two boys in the house that are 5 and 7, it’s no surprise that we are really rough on toys. After weeks of being dropped, dragged, transformed and more, Jagger is still in perfect working condition which lets me as a parent know that it’s kid tough. Jagger takes 4AA batteries which I was actually surprised by. He’s such a big toy that I almost expected him to take bigger or more batteries. I’m not sure on the actual battery life, but after over 3 weeks of lots of play, he’s still going strong. Jagger is priced at $69.99 and can be purchased at Amazon or Vtech.
The Vtech Switch & Go Dino line also includes a lot of fun other smaller dinos which include:
- Blister the Velociraptor™
- SkySlicer the Allosaurus™
- MC Roar the Giganotosaurus™
- Stompsalot the Amargasaurus™
- Quiver the Stygimoloch™
- Torr the Therizinosaurus™
- Akuna the Velociraptor
The boys also had fun playing with Acuna, Torr and Stompsalot. They were a great compliment to Jagger and made for even more interactive fun. They are also the perfect size for take along play.
