VTech® Introduces KidiBuzz™ G2, Next Generation of Its Popular Smart Device
Sleek, Adult-Like Smart Device Now Includes AR Gaming and Live Photo Filters
CHICAGO, August 14, 2019 — Today VTech® announced the availability of KidiBuzz™ G2, a durable smart device that uses Wi-Fi to let kids send messages, images and videos to parent-approved contacts and includes more than 40 learning games. A redesign of the successful 2017 KidiBuzz™ that sold out during the holidays, KidiBuzz G2 includes exciting new features in this kid-safe tech.
“Kids want to have the same cool technology as adults, but parents aren’t always willing to hand them their expensive devices,” said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. “That’s where KidiBuzz G2 comes in. It looks like a high-tech phone and also keeps parents in control of who their child interacts with. It’s a win-win!”
Geared for ages 4-9 years, KidiBuzz G2 is the Wi-Fi smart device that kids and parents will love. Kids get the messaging, photography, games and music they want—and parents get peace of mind knowing kids can play, connect safely and learn along the way. The device also works with the free KidiConnect™ app. Kids can use the app on their KidiBuzz to send texts, voice messages and images to an approved list of contacts including other KidiBuzz devices and smartphones. Parents can use the app on their smartphone to approve their child’s contact list, set time limits and add their own list of specifically-approved websites. KidiConnect is available on the App Store and Google Play.
In-demand new features include the Wonder Masks app that lets kids add movement-responsive face filters to pictures. For augmented reality fun, kids can play Creature Detective, which blends AR gaming with learning. The KidiBuzz G2 comes with 40+ learning games that cover math, spelling, science, problem-solving, music, Spanish and more. Plus, kids can enjoy access to a free trial of LeapFrog Academy®, an interactive learning program filled with 2,000 engaging games and activities.
KidiBuzz G2 retails for $99.99 and is available now at major retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.vtechkids.com/kidibuzz.
