Review:

Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town is a vehicle-themed proprietary game cartridge designed for ages 2 - 5 and compatible with Vtech's line of InnoTab Learning Tablets. Casey the Car works on letter matching, Paul the Police Car uses clues to find missing letters, Frank the Fire Truck asks users to listen to letter sounds to help rescue kittens from a tree, and Cyrus the Cement Mixer, asks kids to help build roads while learning handwriting skills.

Nine games and activities introduce numbers and letters to boost beginning reading and writing skills. The activities are well constructed and function as expected, providing good positive feedback for correct answers and encouragement to try again when answers are not. Our young testers played in several sessions of 20-30 minutes and there was plenty more for us to do. Several of the activities are open ended enough to use for many return trips. In our view, Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town is a worthwhile investment to extend the usability of the InnoTab Tablet for the Pre-K age group.
