GIVEAWAY: VTech Switch & Go Dinos® Review

This is a sponsored post, the VTech product, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech.   The experiences and opinions related are my own personal ones with this product and yours may differ. 

We have some new toys to play with that my little guy thinks are just awesome.  They may have even been what helped teach him to say the word, "Mine!" as in, "Hands off sister!"  He added that to his vocabulary around the time they showed up and is quite vocal about not wanting to share them with his big sister.  This big guy is named Jagger the T-Rex™ and he's the ultimate Switch & Go Dinos® from VTech, and by ultimate I also so BIG.  He is 16 inches tall!

What makes this line of toys such a hit is that they can be played with a both a truck and a dino.  Jagger the T-Rex™ is extra special because in both forms he not only has has movable parts, but he also responds to over ten voice commands for a total of over twenty ways to interact with Jagger.

Truck Mode Commands Include:
Go Forward!
Go Back!
Start Your Engine!
Fire the Drill!
Turn on the lights!
Let's make some noise!
Talk to me!
Let's race!
Sound the alarm!
Wrecking machine!
Monster truck!
It's quitting time.

My little guy is two years old and he's at the top of the charts size wise, but as you can see in truck form Jagger is a super vehicle.  He really enjoys pushing the buttons to make the headlights shine, talk, beep, and using the extendable crane that can rotate and lift.  You can even choose the drive image that shows up behind the windshield.  There are a lot of neat features built into the truck that would make it a cool toy even if it didn't switch into a dino.

As you can see in the video above, LB also loves to shoot off the drills.  My son is just beginning to talk a little bit so he can't use the voice commands yet, but there is plenty to keep him busy.  It's a great toy for him and Daddy to play with.

Like I said before, the truck by itself is super cool, all that AND there's even more ways to play once you switch it into Jagger the T-Rex™.  Now I'll admit, I have to read the directions to switch between truck and dino, however, my husband and the boys down the street need no such instruction.  They were able to switch it in no time at all.  My brain just doesn't think that way. 

I could go on and on about the features like the motorized jaw that chomps and roars or the stomping feet, and you can change your dino's eyes but I think a video will show you a lot better!  Here is a short clip of my husband giving Jagger the T-Rex™ some voice commands.

Now you know it wouldn't be a VTech Toy without some fun educational features build in.  Jagger the T-Rex™ also knows some educational facts about himself that he's happy to share!  One thing I've always liked about VTech is how they make learning fun, so along with the facts, Jagger also has some jokes to.  They are kinda groaners but my daughter thinks they are hilarious.

T-Rex Mode Commands Include:

Go forwards!
Go back!
Roar with me!
Fire the drill!
Go wild!
Snack time!
Talk to me!
Make me laugh!
Change your voice!
You're not so tough!
Go to sleep!
Teach me something!  
 A handy voice command list comes included so you can remember all the things Jagger will do.  There is also a command mode button on Jagger that you can press and he'll prompt you with commands.  Just press the button again and again until he says the one you want.  I like this built in feature, it's like a cheat sheet for when your clueless mother aka me is trying to play it!

Wee also received a selection of three other VTech Switch & Go Dinos®.  They are the perfect size playing both at home and on the go.  As you can see, he likes to put them into his little backpack and travel with them.

I love their dual functionality as both vehicle and dinos as they are like two toys in one and they keep my busy two year old occupied for longer periods of time when we are out visiting family and friends without a stock of toys.

Win a VTech Switch & Go Dinos® 
Gift Pack with 3 Dinos!

The winner's gift pack will include three VTech Switch & Go Dinos® similar to or the same as the ones shown above.  A Rafflecopter entry form is at the bottom of the post for you to enter in, but before we get to that, let's take a look at each of the ones we were sent.  Each one has a sound effect and voice buttons, over 30 wild sounds and phrases, on/off switch & volume control, and light up dino eyes but each is also unique.  Let's see what makes each one different.

Torr the Therizinosaurus™ transforms from a rugged, off road vehicle into a Therizinosaurus™. With the longest claws in dinosaur history, Torr loves to smash and slash his way through the forest.  He also has tough tires, a powerful body, and an open roof.

Stompsalot the Amargasaurus™ transforms from a classic hot rod to an Amargasaurus.  He has a cool windshield, hot exhaust pipes, a long neck, and wicked spines!  The long neck and powerful body,  make him a formidable foe and his spikes help protect him.

Quiver the Stygimoloch™ transforms from a super speedy race car to a Stygimoloch.  He's so fast that if you blink, you just might miss him! On top of having speed, he's also a walking battering ram with a a hard head with spiky horns.  Check out his sleek racing tires and driver's seat!
