Vtech has done a version of this talking toy for over twenty years and although the colors change and the sounds, it never gets tired. Of course, Vtech is hoping to teach your toddler to count and get a leg up on math. Don’t worry about the math. This is a toy for active repetitive play. It’s fine that the sports center counts when a ball goes through the hoop and the scoreboard lights up with the numerals from 1-10. Kids will even like the words of praise and songs it plays. The big thing they’ll get from this is active big motor play...chasing the ball. All good. School skills can wait until they can actually talk. One more thing—they added a soccer ball for kicking under the hoop. Also good. Toddlers will not be perfecting their counting or their skills at shooting from afar. The little player pictured above has the right idea...he’s just going to sink it directly, chase it, and do it again. Fun for active repetitive play, which describes toddlers.
