My kid’s first response when she saw the VTech Preschool Learning Tote ‘N Go Laptop was, “Whoa, I want one of those!” It’s a portable laptop for kids that looks like a grown-ups version complete with a handle for carrying, a keyboard, mouse, and teaching activities on screen. The computer takes 3 AA batteries and the recommended age range is 3-7 years, which could potentially keep the kids off the real laptop for a number of years.
With thirty games and activities to teach language, math, and music, the VTech Laptop is sure to keep the kids occupied for long car rides and rainy days while creating an opportunity to exercise that brain. At around $25 it’s not too expensive if more than one must be purchased to stop non-sharing squabbles.
The mouse pad is removable and can be set up for either right-handed or left-handed use. There are two color styles available – one is orange with other primary colors and one is mostly pink.

The keyboard is designed to have the alphabet in letter order rather than the standard QWERTY keyboard used on most computers. This feature has gotten mixed reviews, but serves to keep the ABC learning consistent rather than confusing kids during a learning game.
Yes, the kids will need to train themselves later for QWERTY, but at this age they are typing with one finger at a time anyway.
