VTech Go! Go! Smart Animals™ Forest Adventure Playset™ and Go! Go! Smart Animals™ Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

**This is a sponsored post.  I received the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

I love toys that last a long time and that my kids can play with for years and I think I've found a great playset to fit that criteria!  I was recently given the VTech Go! Go! Smart Animals™ Forest Adventure Playset™ and some Go! Go! Smart Animals™ to review with my 22 month old daughter and she's in love with this toy!  There is simply so much to explore!  Ava can roll her little animals along the playset and as her animals roll over the SmartPoint locations they respond with different phrases, music and fun sound effects.  Ava loves hearing her animals make all of these fun sound effects and she is learning while she plays.  We also love the four manipulative features including a turning disc, gate, sliding squirrel and twisting butterfly.  This is great for her fine motor skills!

I love that you can buy other playsets and connect them to one another for a larger playset.  We are going to ask Santa for some more Go! Go! Smart Animals™ and  the Zoo Explorers Playset.  It will be fun to connect it all together and let the animals roll across all of the SmartPoints. It's so fun to watch her role play with her animals and I love how the technology is so interactive!
