VTech Go! Go! Smart Friends® Enchanted Princess Palace #PerfectHolidayGiftforGirls

After having 4 sons in a row, as soon as our first daughter came along, everything in our house went from total boy to total girl! It was – for me – a welcoming change because I’m such a girly-girl. From the second Victoria was born, she’s been in love with anything princess! Her bedroom is top to bottom in different shades of pink. Her wardrobe is all pinks and purples and glitter and glam. And, of course, her toys are definitely princess themed, too!

I’m always on the hunt for fabulous toys to bring into our home for Victoria. Now that she’s 3 years old, she’s very into toys that she can engage with and have fun with all on her own. She has really fallen in love with Go! Go! Smart Friends® Enchanted Princess Palace™ by VTech®.

It is an absolute magical palace for a little girl! This incredible epic palace expands to more than four feet wide and has a variety of luxurious rooms, including a ballroom, music room, kitchen, parlor and observation tower. Oh, yes… your little one can explore each magical room and have so much fun with Princess Darla.

There are 2 sides of fun to explore, so the playtime with the Go! Go! Smart Friends® Enchanted Princess Palace™ is extra fun!  What I’ve loved is hearing Victoria make up little stories and play an enchanted make-believe. It’s so wonderful to see Victoria create a little magical world for herself and Princess Darla. I love seeing this fun and independent play happening. Not to mention, the learning skills, too. When you turn the clock hands (it was the 1st thing I tried!), it triggers music and responses. And the light-up buttons right in front play songs, teach colors and letters!

The most magical part for Victoria?

While exploring the palace with Princess Darla, your little one can place her on five MagicPoint® locations to experience her friendly personality, lights and more. The characters literally come to life! The first time Victoria realized that Princess Darla had a MagicPoint® in the palace, she jumped up… she couldn’t believe it. What a special and fun treat for her! Also, when Princess Darla sits at her MagicChat™ tea set table with a friend (important to note, additional characters sold separately), they will chat and sing with each other! Your child can easily join on in! As a parent I love that there are over 80 songs, melodies, sounds and phrases. I know Victoria is learning while she plays and to me… that is priceless.


Princess Darla will become your child’s new little best friend while she plays. I personally can’t say enough good things about this fabulous Enchanted Princess Palace™. It’s been so much fun watching Victoria enjoy!

    Vtech makes fantastic toys. My Daughter would have loved this when she was younger. It will be the perfect gift for my friends little one. She has a birthday coming up.

  21. 10.6.16

    I always loved when my kids played independently. I think it taught them how valuable alone time can be. My youngest son who is 35 (wow!) had an early V-Tech educational toy that he and his brother and sister loved. AND… we still have it. Now the grand kids play with it.

  22. 10.6.16

    What a great toy! Vtech has always made great toys.
