Vtech Cora the Smart Cub

I was provided with a Cora the Smart Cub to review by VTech. All opinions are my own.

As Rylie gets older I find myself looking at toys in the toy aisle and wondering if they will last a couple of years or not and if they will grow with her. A lot of them sadly won’t, but there is one toy I introduced recently that will, the Vtech Cora the Smart Cub. Cora is suitable for babies age 6 months to toddlers age 36 months. It introduces children to early learning skills and out of the box Cora knows 40 phrases, 4 sing along songs, 2 stories, and 30 melodies. With Vtech’s app, the Learning Lodge, you can download melodies, stories, and activities. You can also program Cora to know your baby’s name, birth date, favorite colors, etc. Cora will also greet your child with special greetings on holidays and their birthday.


My first impression of Cora: she’s pretty big for a 6 month old which is good. It didn’t scare Rylie and she actually lit up when I introduced the toy to her during her play time. She instantly grabbed her and started playing with Cora. What got annoying was when Rylie kept a tight squeeze of the “song hand” it kept playing the songs starting from the first one on the list (in our case, Claire de Lune). Thankfully I have the option to turn it off, which is great for when you need your sanity and don’t want to hear the toy. It’s been about a week since we’ve had Cora and Rylie still lights up every time I hand Cora to her. She loves her and I have a feeling once she’s a bit older she’ll be carrying it around everywhere.
