VTech, the creator of the Electronic Learning Products (ELP) category, is a world leader of age-appropriate learning products. Since 1980, VTech has been developing high-quality, innovative educational products that enrich children’s development through fun and smart play.

Babies’ growth and development during the first year is more dramatic than at any other age. Your child will progress from almost complete helplessness to walking, talking, thinking and socializing – all in 12 months. During the first year, the foundation for every basic mental process will be laid, including sensory-motor pathways, emotional responses, language and other cognitive abilities.
