I love VTech toys….and so do my boys!  Recently, thanks to VTech Toys and Mom Central we had the opportunity to check out the VTech Switch and Go Dinos.  Talk about a fun time for little boys!  We got to check out the VTech Switch & Go DinosAttila the Ankylosaurus.  It is really cool!  Attila the Ankylosaurus retails for $24.99 in stores and online.  Attila is best for children ages 3 to 8 years old.

My boys loved how easy it was to transform Attila from a Dinosaur to a construction vehicle.  The sounds and phrases were both fun and educational.  Plus, you could either tow around toys and other animals (with the tow hook and dump trailer on the vehicle) or knock things down and out of the way (with the wrecking ball on the end of the dinosaur’s tail).  This awesome 2-in-1 toy is great for both boys and girls!

Traveling with children proves no easy task – especially when your packing list includes everything from snacks to their favorite stuffed animal.  Although we try to pack efficiently, we never want to skimp on toys to keep them entertained.  VTech Electronics has introduced a new line that brings together two of your child’s favorite themes – dinosaurs and vehicles.  Switch & Go Dinos feature electronic elements that bring the toys to life and guarantees to keep kids entertained via a 2-in-1 innovative play experience.  Also available is Brok the Brachiosaurus and Span the Spinosaurus.


– Watch out or he’ll knock you out!  Attila the Ankylosaurus is a 2-in-1 dinosaur from the Switch & Go Dinos crew by VTech.  This electronic toy fuses two of boys’ favorite things – dinosaurs and vehicles – into one awesome play experience that your child will love!


No one tells Attila the Ankylosaurus what to do! A member of the VTech Switch & Go Dinos crew, Attila is a 2-in-1 toy that easily transforms from a hefty construction vehicle to an Ankylosaurus and back again in just a few simple steps. In vehicle mode, use the included tow hook and heavy duty dump trailer to haul your construction equipment or other Switch & Go Dinos (not included). Or in dino mode, use the included wrecking ball on the end of Attila’s tail to hit whatever gets in his way! For added excitement, this fierce dino has a dynamic LCD screen that comes to life with the push of a button and features cool driver and dino eyes animations. Simply push one of the buttons to customize your driver or dino eyes or push the other buttons to trigger realistic sound effects and phrases that teach interesting dino facts.
