CHICAGO, Sept. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today VTech® announced its Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Treasure Mountain Train Adventure™ playset was named to Walmart's "Chosen by Kids" Top 25 list, recognizing the hottest toys of the upcoming holiday season. The honor marks the third consecutive year VTech's acclaimed Go! Go! Smart Wheels line was handpicked by kids for a spot on the exclusive list.
"Our Go! Go! Smart lines continue to deliver playsets featuring innovative technologies that bring the toys to life," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Treasure Mountain Train Adventure is proof of our continued commitment to delivering engaging play experiences as it is our first playset to feature a motorized vehicle that goes uphill and we are thrilled with the response it has received."
The interactive Go! Go! Smart Wheels Treasure Mountain Train Adventure features a motorized freight train that chugs around the tracks, through the tunnels and up hills on its own. The included train responds to nine SmartPoint locations with fun phrases, music and more. Little ones can pretend to mine for gold in the mountain by hammering the three shape-sorter blocks through the mine shaft. Each piece will roll down the mountain where it can be loaded onto the cargo car attached to the train. Or, kids can wait for the cargo car to pass under the mine shaft and try to hammer the shape-sorter blocks onto it. The gold mine also includes rotating gears and a crane to move the shape pieces around. By pressing the toy freight train's light-up button, kids can hear three sing-along songs and learn the letter "F" and the name of the vehicle. Parents can purchase additional SmartPoint vehicles, and connect to other Go! Go! Smart Wheels and Go! Go! Smart Animals playsets with tracks (sold separately) to encourage children's creativity. (Ages 1-5 years, MSRP: $54.99)
The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Treasure Mountain Train Adventure was recognized in the thrill-seeker category as a toy which allows kids to take an adventure right in their own homes. The Go! Go! Smart line consists of Go! Go! Smart Wheels, Go! Go! Smart Friends® and Go! Go! Smart Animals®, which includes a 2015 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award winner.
