NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- VTech® is giving the royal treatment to its award-winning Go! Go! Smart Friends® product line with the introduction of a new fairytale theme. The collection will introduce an enchanting kingdom of princesses, fairies and more that incorporate traditional role-play infused with cutting edge technology for an engaging, multi-sensory learning experience popular with toddlers and parents alike. Go! Go! Smart Friends features VTech's proprietary MagicPoint™ technology, bringing characters and playsets to life with lights, sounds, music and motion. The line is on display at the 2016 North American International Toy Fair®.

"Our multi award-winning Go! Go! Smart product lines represent the innovative technology and smart play consumers have come to expect from VTech," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "We are confident that the theme of the new Go! Go! Smart Friends will inspire children's imaginations with royal journeys and fairytale adventures."

Go! Go! Smart Friends gives children a comprehensive, multi-faceted play experience while delivering manipulative play features and charming details that will captivate them. The new princess-themed line is anchored by the Enchanted Princess Palace, an epic castle that expands to four feet long. It features five MagicPoint locations for children to interact with, boosting imaginative play through cause-and-effect learning. The palace also includes a tea set table with MagicChat™ technology, where Princess Darla can chat and sing with another character (sold separately), encouraging language development. Additional characters and playsets include a cottage, unicorns, a horse, princes, fairies and princesses, letting toddlers engage in imaginative role-play as they develop fine motor skills. The playsets, designed for children 1½ – 5 years old, also connect with other Go! Go! Smart Wheels® and Go! Go! Smart Animals® playset tracks (each sold separately) to allow parents to affordably extend the play value and further encourage their children's creativity.
