What parent testers had to say:
This is a good product that is both fun and educational. My 21 month old loves having her own little interactive desk and stool. It is colourful and bright with sounds and music that attracts and engages her attention. She is still a little young so I have to guide her but on her own, she loves pushing the picture 'buttons' on the activity pages.
The Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe is really fun and engaging. My kids have a great time playing all the different games and finding new ways to play. The fact that it also serves as an easel and chalkboard is great for my daughter who loves to draw and scribble. The different activity pads make this very educational and I feel it is great for pre-k learning. We are really enjoying the time we all play together and I am enjoying being able to get stuff done while my kids are preoccupied and playing together.
I enjoyed showing my son this toy. I really don't have any complaints. But I believe that if a toy offers something (ex. A chalk board) then chalk should be included. No chalk was included with our toy which means my son couldn't try out that feature of the toy. But batteries included and 5 cards is a winner in my books!
I am very pleased with the Touch and Learn Activity Desk Deluxe. When I first received it and pulled it out of the box, I was surprised that there were no instructions, but realized quickly how easy to assemble and start using. The size is perfect for the age group it's intended for and very sturdy. I really appreciated the pads for under the desk and stool feet that came with it. The fact that the desk is multi-functional is brilliant - from touch and learn activities to easel and chalkboard. It goes a long way and makes it worth purchasing knowing that it can be used for quite a few years, especially with the ad-on activity packages. I love watching my daughter sit at her own desk and she enjoys it too. My daughter is 3 and really likes using the chalkboard and music sheet. As she grows and develops, I know she will continue to find new things to explore with this desk.
The Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe is an extremely versatile, fun and educational tool & toy for ages 18 months up to 5 years. There is something for each level of learning and held my son's attention with the combination of music, light display, voices, AND the different interfaces to play with. I love the multi-purpose 3 in one features of this product as well and as a parent, this is a huge bonus! It's great value for my money! It's awesome that it can switch from desk to chalkboard to art station as well as use it in activity mode with the interactive panel with ease. I love that you can use it various ways for different activities. Super clever V-Tech! Thumbs up for me!
