The Vsmile educational game system is an extremely interactive and educational fun and learning system developed by Vtech to cater kids and children ages 3 to 9 years old. The whole gaming package comes with a console that is the game controller and ROM cartridges, also being referred to as “smartriges” by many. Smartriges are commonly referred to as vsmile games – they are removable cartridges one inserts on the console that contains specific games for children to play. Smartriges are also said to be a good innovation in the gaming history because they are in their nature, robust and damage resistant. Many home video game systems utilized the cartridge based system and this was the predecessor of the CD based game systems that are widely used today. However, for kids, the vsmile educational game system is really practical because they are said to be durable and tough to last for a couple of years if they are properly maintained.Now that everything has become mobile these days, vtech also released a variant of the vsmile education game console – that is, in the form of vsmile handheld versions. Now you can virtually go out on a trip and play with your favorite games using this mobile game system. A wide variety of gaming consoles have been designed and they are sometimes classified according to gender: there are blue colored ones for boys and the pink ones are for the girls. Vtech also incorporated different themes for these kids’ enhanced gaming experience – as you may have notice, vsmile games have wide array of games to choose from based on thematic concepts and cartoon characters – to name a few, Scooby Doo, Bob the Builder, The Wiggles, Cars, Ratatouille, Kung Fu Panda, Little Red Riding Hood, Spongebob Squarepants and a whole lot more.Myriad options for Smartriges or vsmile games are licensed from different trademarks and sometimes that nature of each vsmile game is dependent on its theme. So your kid will never be bored because he or she can change smartriges every now and then to explore more games. Smartriges are also classified further according to age appropriate games that would be best suited to different age groups: the beginner’s group (ages 3-5), junior thinkers (4-6), masterminds (6-8) and advanced (6-9). The age group obviously overlaps to show that some kids are likely to enjoy one after the other, or at the same time.Other parents would think that vsmile educational games systems are just pure entertainment for children. But the truth is they are intentionally designed to be highly interactive so that kids will learn a lot from them. This is the toy company’s version of “active interactive learning” through an action based gameplay.
