"We are honored that year after year, VTech is included on the TTPM Most Wanted List of the hottest toys for the holiday season," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "We believe our products resonate with parents because they offer timeless features such as engaging play patterns and allow children to learn through discovery."
