VTech's Cora the Smart Cub #sponsored

9/12/13
Thank you to VTech for providing Cora the Smart Cub for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Vtech educational toys
Interactive learning toys are important for a young child's emotional, cognitive, and social development.  Through simple play, children learn about their world. As a parent, I look for toys that are not only educational but fun!


VTech is well known for their fun, interactive and educational toys and I was thrilled to test out their latest toddler/preschool toy:  
Cora the Smart Cub.

educational toys

Cora is a cuddly interactive bear geared towards ages 6-36 months.  Though the Attic Baby's at the upper end of this age group, the special features of this bear piqued my interest.   This bear has the usual press buttons on the hands, feet, and belly identifying simple body parts.  (You've probably seen a few bears like this on the market) 

What makes Cora extra special is that she comes with a USB cord that connects to VTech's Learning Lodge where you can download songs, stories, special routines, and you can personalize the bear to say your child's name in greeting.

The USB port is located in the battery compartment in the back of the bear which closes with velcro. Mind you, the USB cord is a bit tricky to connect to the bear itself due to the little slider that conceals the USB port.  I used a piece of tape to hold the little sliding door open on the first few tries; otherwise it's a bit difficult to keep it open while you're trying to plug in the cord in such a tight little space.  Hopefully VTech can think of a way to make that a little easier on mom and dad.

Once you get over the tricky connection part, the set up on the VTech site is easy to customize.  Simply go through a checklist of selections and download them to Cora.  I love how you can change them whenever you want so your child doesn't get bored with the same stories and songs!  And one of the great things about her is that she remembers your child's birthday and you can select special people in your child's life to be a part of the stories.





The Attic Baby loves Cora's musical aspects and hearing her own name as well as the names of her friends and family members.  She talks back to Cora when playing with her.  It's a great tool for encouraging language from your little one.
