Q: There is a square slot in the yellow radio part for something like a cartridge to be inserted but it did not come with that. What is this for??

submitted by HollaB - 4 years ago

This educational toy may work for a dainty toddler. My grandson is in his climb and break down and put back together period. The table lacks stability and worse are the changeable mats that need to be inserted for play. I do not recommend this product.

Had this for a little over 9 months and it stopped working. She did not use it everyday, maybe 3 times a week for 15-20 minutes each time. I assumed the battery died went to replace it and it never work again! For $50 it is not worth it. Buyer beware also note the warranty is only 90 days

Desk doesn't last

Sadmom - 6 months ago
The desk was great while it lasted. After only 7 months, cartridges stopped working at all. All the expansions we bought became absolutely useless. Customer service and tech support was equally useless. They said the desk must be broken and there wasn't anything they could do about it. This toy is too much money to spend for it to not last more than a few months. Not worth it...

A year later this learning toy is working great. 3 little ones between 1 and 5 and only replace the batteries once everything still works worth getting the other stuff. Sometimes it's good to dish out.

The table stopped functioning in the hand of a three year old after a few months and the warranty is 90 days. I won’t be purchasing any vtech products anymore knowing that they don’t even have faith in their own products.

It stopped working after a few months use. During that few months the batteries would die super fast until eventually it wouldn’t work at all with new batteries.

Worthless because there's no cartridge for the sheets and no one sells the cartridges

No one - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
The expansion packets are $39.99. When I plugged them into the desk, the desk asked for a cartridge. No one is selling the cartridges to make the external packets work. Do not buy this desk. If you’re expecting to use it with multiple sheets, expansion sheets there’s no cartridge and the desk will repeatedly ask for a cartridge to match the sheets. It’s basically worthless.

This computer is awesome and the expansion packs are pretty much necessary to keep it interesting for the kids. We got it for Christmas 2022 and about 3 months later, it died. I changed the batteries and it still didn't turn on again. I would recommend getting the warranty for this.

Stops working. This is second one we've gotten, both of them stop working. The pen doesn't respond to anything after hardly any use. Not worth the price. Nice concept, but falls hard on the quality.

This desk is incredible! I recommend it to everyone!! My son has learned so much from this desk. We repurchased this after the first one broke after 3 years of use. I consider this toy a necessity since it's taught my son so much! I'm excited for my second son to start playing with it and learning!
