Pushing buttons, flashing lights and a handset to talk into. Toddlers love electronic phone toys, and actually as a mum I found them pretty cool to play with too. There's something therapeutic about just pushing buttons! Tesco Direct has reduced the price of the VTech Buzz Lightyear Talk and Teach Phone from £19.97 to £13.31. That's a saving of one third on the original price.
I'm really impressed with the look of this phone. The whole Buzz Lightyear design fits really well here. Even if you didn't know, anyone who was familiar with Buzz Lightyear will instantly recognise this phone. Perfect for any little Toy Story fans, that's for sure.
The blurb on the website describes it as a "play and learn Buzz Lightyear desktop role-play game". Children can press the 0 to 9 number buttons to learn Toy Story characters, numbers and letters. This is achieved through three modes of play; Battery Hunt, Number Code and My Friends.
When the handset is picked up, children will hear the voice changer in action. With the voice changer your voice can be distorted using three funny effects; alien, monster and robot.
The chunky buttons on the phone means the games are not only stimulating but easy to use. With lots of cheerful music and Buzz Lightyear''s voice, it''s time to blast off into learning!
The phone also claims to help with basic maths skills, as the child learns to identify numbers and their order. Batteries are included, and the age range for this toy is 3 years and upwards.
