My boys are games mad, that isn’t a secret and they love playing their handheld games consoles but for James this is a problem as he is still too little to play with them and he get frustrated when he sees his brothers playing games like Mario Kart and Lego Batman. So when we were asked to review the MobiGo 2 from Vtech I had one very happy little boy. The MobiGo 2 is an updated version of the very popular MobiGo. It is new and improved and is the perfect handheld gaming system for a preschool child!
It is compact & stylish in design and has a touch sensitive ‘finger touch’ screen for interactive play, this allows for children to learn and have fun at the same time.
New features include a stylus, motion-based game play and a microphone for enhanced game play. If you slide the screen up you reveal a QWERTY keyboard and 4-directional cursor, there are also eBooks, drawing activities and a picture viewer, so there is plenty to keep a small child busy.

The MobiGo helps teach curriculum based school skills including English, maths, colours, shapes and more through fun game-play and is aimed at children aged 3 – 8 years old. It comes complete with a Cars 2 cartridge. Cars is a particular favourite in our house so this game went down a storm with James. You can buy other games cartridges for the MobiGo 2, games include Thomas and friends, Toy story 3 to Hello Kitty and Dora the Explorer but if you have a MobiGo then the cartridges will fit from that too.
The Mobigo 2 has a RRP of £59.99 but this may vary. You can purchase a MobiGo 2 from all good toy retailers both instore and online.
