So Many Ways To Play & Learn With VTech Toys

So Des has been in nursery school now for a month!

I honestly can’t believe it. It seems like just yesterday that Scarlet was starting preschool, and I was so distracted by getting her lunch packed, and getting infant Des into his carseat on the way to drop her at school. Orientation went well, but I wondered about his readiness. I remember a marked difference in Scarlet in only a month after she started nursery school. Ultimately, I know he’s ready and I know we’re ready for him too, so we have invested in some new learning toys for him.

He has always responded well to VTech® Toys products, and I have too, so we love The Touch & Learn Activity Desk™ Deluxe by VTech®.It’s a three-in-one desk with interactive activity cards. The desk is expandable for more fun and discovery, and features an interactive desktop as well as five double-sided pages filled with engaging content including letters, numbers, music, colors, and much more. You can choose from eight expansion packs – sold separately – that each focus on a specific curriculum, like nursery rhymes, reading skills, animals, and numbers. The Touch & Learn Activity Desk™ Deluxe by VTech® transforms from a desk into an easel and chalkboard, with plenty of storage space for art supplies – to encourage play and discovery. 

There’s an LED display that illustrates letter and number stroke order, and how to draw basic shapes. For extra fun, your toddler/preschooler can play with the toy telephone or listen to music on the music player. Des enjoys hours of creative play. 

The Touch & Learn Activity Desk™ Deluxe by VTech® is available at most major retailers – like Target, Amazon, Toys R Us, and Walmart, and retails for $54.99, with activity packs retailing at $9.99. The desk is designed for children 2-5 years old. Des is newly four and has never been in preschool, so he has a lot of fun learning, discovery and exploration to do.


Each Touch & Learn Activity Desk™ Deluxe expansion pack includes a cartridge and four double-sided pages that focus on a specific curriculum from a wide range of subjects. Each one adds eight activities and up to 42 interactive touch points for your child to explore. It’s certainly fun to use a new one, and I also enjoy how thoroughly Des enjoys each activity. He will spend a lot of time learning and exploring the desk, and we are always happy to join in and help him when he asks.

  10. I think VTech products are really great! We don’t buy many electronic toys and learning things for our kids when they’re very young, but I love how many options are out there now to help enhance learning! 🙂

  11. My babies loved their VTech toys. I’m not sure if they still have any, but I know we’ve owned quite a few. 🙂 There was one that spelled words and made the sounds of letters that my brother and I played with… it was my daughter’s. We were being very immature. 😀 Oh the good old Texas days. 🙂

  12. I try to make learning fun by being excited about it too. Looking things up together. Good way to spend time AND learn something with the kids 🙂

  13. Des sure looks like he’s having fun with his new toy. Madison thinks she’s a big girl now so is all into tablets but this would make a great gift for a little friend who’s having a party this weekend.

  16. The way I make learning fun for my youngest granddaughter is to go out into the community to explore museums, sites of interest, etc. while incorporating in learning and parts of her curriculum.

  17. I make learning fun for my kids by singing songs to them. It helps them memorize whatever it is I’m needing to teach them. Right now I’m teaching my 2 yr old the alphabet song and she is doing amazing!

  18. One important way to make learning fun is to show a lot of curiosity and eagerness to learn on my part, too. That way I can demonstrate that learning really is fun, and a lifelong pursuit.

  19. I don’t have kids, so this is not an issue for me. But I remember my mom making learning fun by taking me out in nature every day the weather permitted and teaching me the names of plants and trees while we played.

  20. I encouraged learning, and still do, by reading,
    reading, reading. Aloud when they are little and together as they get older.
