Welcome to a new(ish) addition to Just Another Mom! As you’ve seen in the past, Squeaker has helped me out with reviews before. Mostly with books, but now we’re expanding a bit into the realm of toys. So, any review that’s specifically about toys that she’s participated in, will be in Squeaker’s Review Corner. For our very first post in this category, I am so thrilled to talk to you about our experience with the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels RC Racetrack.
Squeaker honed in on this the day we got it, mostly on the race car so I wasn’t sure if she would enjoy playing with the whole set. Of course that was also dependent on mommy getting said set together properly…. which I didn’t but she still had fun with it!
First, the frustrating part for me was figuring out the directions. I like things labeled and clear. And because my eyesight is starting to fail me more lately, I like larger print. But, that aside, I got my guidance from the box. I’ll give this another try as there are a few suggested assembly options.
I still got it mostly together and it was functional. Which was good enough for Squeaker because she was really starting to get impatient with me while I was putting this together.
But, for every second of frustration experienced putting it together… it was entirely worth it.
Forgive the blurriness but she would not stand still.
