New Learning Fun For Kids From VTech and A Toy Giveaway!

Kids and artistic pursuits just go together don't they? All children like to scribble and write from the time they can manage to grasp a pen or paint brush and it continues from there. Our daughter is a fine example of the hours of fun to be had participating in the leisurely art of drawing. One only needs to take a look at the floors in our home on any particular day when she's been at the task for just a few minutes. There's a perpetual mess of paper, markers, scissors and colouring books strewn everywhere by our young artist in our home. That scene alone speaks volumes on the topic! 

Having a tidier home (from my perspective alone), is just one reason why I am very appreciative of this latest toy from Vtech! The VTech DigiArt Creative Easel has just been released today (the 18th of June) at all Big W stores and leading retailers. If you're also a parent battling piles of paper art and craft around your home, you're going to be thrilled with the VTech DigiArt Creative Easel too. 
No more kid-mess - yeeHAH!

As the name suggests, the VTech DigiArt Creative Easel provides kids with endless hours of fun with either markers, chalk or the built-in digital pen which works like magic with the easel. Unlike a standard easel, the VTech DigiArt Creative Easel has tech working within to enhance your child's learning potential. Children can not only learn to draw but also master letters, numbers, phonics and shapes. (And not a single piece of paper shall be wasted in the process!)

While they're drawing, kids can enjoy the gentle classical music that flows from the easel to enhance the creative atmosphere.

The easy to use and eye-catching colourful panel invites kids to choose
which individual letters or numbers they would like to practice and then shows them how.

The VTech DigiArt Creative Easel used in conjunction with the included magic pen instructs young children
in the art of letter and number formation, stroke by stroke.
It teaches where and how to start and end both letters and numbers while also providing clear pronunciation.

The light-up whiteboard is a truly fun feature that kids will love. Don't forget you can actually draw on the whiteboard too! (We didn't have a suitable marker at the time these images were taken.) Have your child choose a letter to learn with the VTech technology on the easel, then invite them to illustrate their penmanship by drawing a series of objects that begin with their chosen letter. Just one of the endless fun ways to work with the technology embedded within this toy.

When your child wants something else to entertain them, there's a blackboard on the rear of the easel to instigate further play. Just slide the easel up and flip the surface over. It all transforms easily to keep busy minds and fingers, occupied. There's a tray at the base of the easel for holding chalk, markers and a duster. (Only chalk is included.) A damp cloth is really all you need to clean the easel after use.

The VTech DigiArt Creative Easel stands at over 100cm in height and is pictured here with our five year old. This is a 3-in-1 toy. For the very young, start-out by setting up the easel as a drawing table. (feature not shown here.) Whether your child prefers to draw at a table or easel, this toy is designed to be sturdy and fun for kids aged from three, up to the age of six.

The toy takes 4, AA batteries to operate and adult assembly is required. Please note the easel is recommended for indoor use only due to its technology and is featured here outdoors for illustration purposes only. Full instructions are included.
The VTech DigiArt Creative Easel is RRP $89.95 and it's available at Big W and all good toy retailers right now. A hit prediction with all kids!

...And yes, you can control the volume and enjoy peace of mind with the automatic battery shut-off!

For kids aged 1-5 years, the new VTech Toot-Toot Animals, Animal Boat will bring smiles to cute little faces.

Playing with the Toot-Toot Animals, Animal Boat will give your child plenty of practice in language development, motor skills and imaginative play.

  17. Even though my girls are a little older, they would still enjoy playing with this, and backing up their learning too. If i won it though I'd probably put it in the toy area at the gym so the kids there could use it while their older siblings did gymnastics :)

  18. What a fantastic prize. Both my kids are starting to learn to read and write. Vtech have great interactive toys for the kids to keep them entertained for hours as well as teaching them to learn at the same time. I would dare say if i won i would have to buy another for the other one. But having the boat vtech toy as well, may just be the winner for my massive boaty fan. Loves fishing and boating and dont forget the camping. Kinda like BCF. Being so functionally be perfect to take away camping, to keep the kids entertained.

  19. My almost 1 year old and 5 year old are both massive vtech fans. Their toys are so education but fun at the same time which is win win for kids and parents. This prize would be an awesome addition for my kids thanks for the opportunity.

  20. Miss 3, who so fiercely wants to be both independent and entertained, is a little put out by her newborn brother. More specifically, the amount of time mum is stuck on the lounge feeding and unable to do things that require two hands. I love the look of this toy because it seems highly interactive and (a bonus) gender neutral... meaning I could convince Miss 3 to show her brother how it operates while I'm actually occupied with feeding. A trick, sure, but an educational and rewarding one - right?! :-)

    1. Congrats Amelia! Hope this makes breastfeeding easier. Your kids will have a ball with this! Will be in touch with prize details shortly.
      Thank you to all who entered.

  21. Dee Susan JT:

  23. Just the other day my two year old started to recite numbers. Hearing her little voice learning is magic! We'd love to play with the Vtech boats counting slide and explore every others feature. I looking forward to seeing what my development my kids can amaze me with each and everyday.

  24. Animal mad in our household, this prize pack would be fantastic for entertaining the kids with creative learning play
