They are the creators of the Electronic Learning Products, as well as the award-winning InnoTab, MobiGo, and V.Reader handheld toys.

Cody the Smart Cub™ is VTech’s Newest introduction to their infant and preschool line. He introduces children to valuable every-day life skills like routines, first words, and emotions. He knows exactly what time is it, so your little ones will grow and learn morning greetings, bedtime music, holidays, and birthday wishes. He’s recommended for ages 6-36 months.
I’ve seen a lot of interactive learning plush animals on the market since my niece was born seven years ago. They are all pretty much the same in that they teach numbers, abc’s, some body parts, etc. Luckily, Cody the Smart Cub is hands down the best one I’ve seen, simply because he is so much more than that. To start, he’s super soft unlike all the others! But more importantly, he’s the best interactive learning companion out there.
You can touch his heart and it lights up and makes heartbeat noises. His tummy will play daily messages. Touch his hand he will ask you to high five. Touch his toes and he will giggle. But the fun and learning doesn’t stop there.
So how is he different? Cody familiarizes himself with your child’s routine. He learns when it’s time to say good morning and when it’s nighttime he plays lullabies. He can recognize holidays, birthdays, and will do personalized messages. Honestly, I was a little shocked when we turned him on and I was going through the different features and he said “It’s 2 months until Halloween”. I love that she’s going to learn interactively about different things with him. Through the VTech Learning Lodge you can customize Cody with your child’s name, birthday, and more, download up to 20 of their favorite stories, and 30 unique lullabies. The USB cord is included with the box for you to do all of these amazing things. It was super easy to set up and I love being able to add things to make him more unique and personalized to what our daughter loves.
There are a ton of developmental benefits including tactile stimulation, cause and effect, language development, and discovery and exploration. Teaching daily life, feelings, time concepts, and body parts, Cody the Smart Cub is incredible.
Baby Skibbles absolutely loves Cody the Smart Cub. She played with him in the box for an incredibly long time and now anytime that she’s upset and you pull her out, she instantly gets a smile on her face. We are so lucky to have him!
