- Plush turtle features dangling toys and mirror, crinkle sounds in the front feet
- Colourful, squishy button on turtle's shell lights up, activates songs and sounds, and encourages interaction
- Legs and head can be tucked in to transform the turtle into a ball
When it comes to electronic toys, the best bet for kids and parents alike is finding a balance of educational, entertaining and not-too obtrusive. The VTech Touch and Discover Sensory Turtle offers multiple opportunities to learn and explore, and this seemingly placid plush turtle has a lot going on to stimulate the senses. Its head and feet can be tucked in to create a rolling ball shape; a soft button in the centre of the “shell” lights up and plays various sounds, music and phrases; and many textures and hidden dangling toys offer tactile interaction. Longevity and versatility are key features, as this tortoise is meant for babies from three months to two years, but we found its many pockets and components held the interest of even older kids. Another nice feature: After a period of inactivity, this little turtle turns off on its own—music to any parent’s ears!
