Rated 2 out of 5 by juliewb loud, annoying, limited
I confess I have not given this toy much of a chance. I am considering returning it. There is no volume control on the cars. This might not be so bad, but the phrases and songs that they spout are annoying and idiotic. Maybe I am just saturated with the fake, high-pitched adult voices pretending to be kids.
The possible track configurations are limited, making it difficult to maneuver the vehicles. And the "smart points" are boring and repetitive. I thought additional vehicles would trigger different phrases, but not so.

I have a 17 month old who got the airport and a 4 year old that got the train. I was disappointed that the airport did not come with the ramp shown on the box. The 17 month old loves the cars and plane. They make lots of noise!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OWitt83 Smart Toy with Hours of Endless Play!
We received this set for my 3 year old son, and he was thrilled when he opened it and saw the colorful click together tracks! The tracks were easy for him to put together by himself, and set up the way he wanted them. The smart points places on the tracks, and additional pieces are so much fun! We love the lights and the sounds the airplane vehicle makes when it lands on one of the smart points! My son has been having so much fun playing airport, etc with this set, and reconfiguring the tracks. He even asked us for more tracks for his birthday, and we're adding additional sets to his Christmas list this year, so our family members will know what to buy for him. This is a quality educational product that allows little ones to construct, deconstruct, learn and use their own imaginations. We give this product two thumbs up!

This is a great playset for a toddler or even a playschooler. I love that the SmartPoint vehicles aren't tiny but perfect in size for a toddler to hold and not too large for a preschooler to play with. It's great that the tracks aren't design specific but can be rearranged and arranged based on what the young user chooses.
For parents with more than one child. Buying a set for each child ensures that the fun will never get boring with the mixing and matching that will go on! Plus SmartPoint vehicles can always be used interchangeably on sets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Celestew84 Great fun toy for preschooler - Love VTech Toys!
I was provided with the playset for review- All opinions are 100% my own..
My kids are VTech kids and we love all of their educational toys and the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Airplane Playset did not disappoint. My son (5) and my daughter (4) enjoyed playing with the playset. As a mom it was great to see them learning and using their imagination.
I like that the pieces are so big it makes it easy for the kids to put together and makes for easy storing.

I was really surprised by how much time my son played with this toy! I thought with only one vehicle he would get bored fast but I was wrong.
Once it was out of the box he started putting it together - and then spent days playing with it, interacting with the pilot and plane, and rebuilding the arrangement.
One thing I did not like was the volume level. It cannot be controlled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by valmg My thoughts on the The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Airport Playset
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Airport Playset was very easy to assemble. It took about 5 minutes to put together, the majority of which was spent connecting the track. Once assembled, the airport playset has six SmartPoint locations, which when triggered make one of over 120 different sounds and phrases.
The airport playset comes with one vehicle, the airplane. Additional Go! Go! Smart Wheels vehicles are available for purchase separately. The chunky airplane is easy to hold, and maneuvering it around the tracks can help encourage good motor skills. The brightly colored plastic tracks had no problem staying together. The buildings are sturdy, but it should be noted that when flying the plane the tower did move out of place at times. This playset can easily be connected with other Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets as they all use the same type of track. I think the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Airport Playset is a great toy, and love that it’s interactive and encourages fun and learning.

I received this product free to review on my blog, but all opinions are my own.
I have 3 boys - 8 months, 3 (almost 4), & 5 (almost 6). I expected my youngest two to play with it, but they all really liked this toy.
My youngest pretty much attacked the box as soon as he saw it. He couldn't wait to get to the light-up talking airplane. My 3-year-old & 5-year-old love setting it up and enjoy showing their baby brother how it works and where the SmartPoints were to get the airplane to talk or play music. My 8-month-old spent most of his time trying to pull the tracks apart and chew on them, but the pieces are very sturdy so it wasn't a problem. I have no doubt that the set will stand up to his destruction and still be in good shape when he's old enough to use it properly too.
