When I first started reviewing items it was all movies, books, and Doctor Who. Then I became a dad and into the mix fell scooters, footballs, and things that can inevitably be used as weapons (though that is never their stated purpose). The VTech Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser is a little tough to equip in a dangerous way, unless your toddler is prone to infantile road rage.
The VTech Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser is a sturdy ride for your young one, full of songs, sound effects, and teaching tunes.
Before diving into the fun stuff, here’s a tidbit for parents: this is ridiculously easy to put together. It comes with only about five parts to snap and screw together and your child is off to the races. Compared with items where after you try to construct them you end up either divorced or in the hospital, this was a happy respite.
Now for the kiddies: For your cruiser level children, the VTech Sit-to-Stand Cruiser is fun to ride and can scoot from hardwood to carpet without a problem, although parents should be a little wary when they are pushing from the front on hardwood, as it can roll pretty fast. The activity panel on the steering wheel has tons of buttons, lights, sounds and more to amaze and occupy your child’s growing mind.
For those little ones who are not quite mobile yet, that’s where the “sit” part of the toy comes in. The activity panel pulls right off and you can just give that to them on the floor. They’ll love to touch all the buttons and see the responses they get.
The VTech Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser is one that can grow with your child and is worth every penny (the price ranges between $30-$40 depending on where you get it). My only other warning is if you have a number of kids this age, you might want to buy multiples. They will likely start a cage match over who get to ride it when you’re not looking.
