Vtech Electronics North America, the creator of the V.Smile TV Learning System, announced that it has made available V.Space, a free online educational gaming desktop application that allows children to safely engage in online games and activities.
Designed for children ages 3 to 10 to teach language, colors, math, vocabulary and problem- solving skills, V.Space delivers age-appropriate action-packed games, engaging graphics, personalized icons and activities. V.Space's downloadable format makes it easy for parents to use and set up. Once installed, a V.Space icon will appear on the Windows desktop, allowing parents to create a personalized account for their children.
V.Space features a controlled browser that limits users to safe, educational content developed by Vtech. Other features include a collection of engaging and educational games, a variety of downloadable activities, and the ability for the children to customize the program with a variety of themes that reflect their favorite colors and interests.
"Despite parental Internet concerns, the reality is, Internet access and online gaming among kids is extremely high and continues to grow," said Julia Fitzgerald, vice president of marketing, VTech Electronics North America. "V.Space is the solution to making both parties happy – children can play the computer games they love and parents can rest assured that uncontrolled content will not pop up on the screen."
V.Space accounts are now available to Club VTech members free of charge, and the software can be downloaded from the Club VTech website
