Review of V Smile TV Learning System

My family received the V Smile TV Learning system last year for Christmas as a present. I wanted everyone to know the pros and cons of the system in my opinion.

First of all the pros:

Name brand games appealled to my kids because they love Scooby Doo and Bratz.

Price appealled to my family because it was considerably cheaper than Wii, Playstation, etc. that were out at the time. The system and the games were much more affordable.

Now the cons:

Do you remember the old Atari games? Well the V Smile games are made almost identical and all the problems with the Atari games apply to the V Smile games. If you had Atari games you probably remember blowing on the game cartridges hoping to get them to work again.

Some of the games were extremely easy and some where a tad bit difficult for my 7 and 6 year old. By the way I went by my kid's ages (6 & 7 at the time).

The old saying applies: You get what you pay for. After a couple months of normal use, we threw the system away because it no longer worked.

My recommendation is * (1 star out of 5). Pass on this product. Like I said in the beginning, this is my opinion. Take the good and the bad reviews and make your own informed decision before you buy.
