Children like to be busy, but it takes a special kind of toy to engage a child's imagination for long periods of time. The VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk is a full service learning tool that not only encourages your child to learn how to speak and write, but it also makes learning fun.

With the VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk, your child can pretend they are in school and learning about new and exciting things. When it comes time for your child to really go to school, they will already be in a learning mindset, and they will know what it feels like to sit at a desk and get excited about learning.

The multiple activities available on this toy also help your child to improve their coordination and work on their decision making skills.

Basic Features of the VTech Activity Desk

The VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk is a two-piece toy that comes with the interactive desk and a child-size stool.

The desktop has an interactive set of buttons that help your child to learn the alphabet, while left and right sides of the desk have pencil and drink holders. The desk backstop contains an interactive clock and a music maker that your child can use to listen to their favorite children's songs.

The backstop also has a learning device that is triggered by cards that come with the toy. The cards feature lessons on animals and letters, while the music maker can also be used for verbal lessons and vocabulary building phrases. The desktop flips up to offer a chalkboard and an easel your child can use to draw on, or to help write out the numbers and letters they have learned.

The retail price for this toy is $49.99, but you will have to add any applicable sales tax and shipping charges at the time of purchase for your total purchase price. This toy contains small parts that could be a choking hazard to very young children, and that is why the manufacturer has set the recommended age for this toy at three to six years old.
