Vtech Secret Safe Diary Visual Review
Last year my daughter asked for an electronic diary. Although it was a great idea at the time I never got around to buying one and when Christmas came around there were so many toys out there that her request slipped my mind. However a few weeks ago we were given the opportunity to review the amazing Vtech Secret Safe Diary Visual and Sylvia was over the moon.

VTech is a great brand for interactive, educational and fun toys and something I came across a lot as an Early Years Teacher. In fact my daughter has had a number of fantastic Vtech toys during the her different stages of development. The Vtech Secret Safe Diary is perfect for my 9 year old daughter and is recommended for kids aged 6 to 11 years old.
The Vtech Diary is password protected. When we first opened the diary we needed to reset it, put in the correct date and time and set up a voice recognition password. This took around 2 minutes to set up and Sylvia was able to choose a fun password making the diary personal to just my child.
The diary has three buttons on the front. The first button opens the diary using the chosen password, the second button shares the time and date and the third button puts the diary into camera mode ready to take photos.
Sylvia’s Secret diary is pretty cool. It has a number of features including the ability to write up to 750 diary entries with photos. There is a my info section to create a profile and store special information. The diary has a tools/settings section which is used to reset, delete content and set the time and a handy alarm clock.
The Vtech Secret Safe Diary visual has a secret drawer to keep special treasures inside. This can only be unlocked by pressing a certain button on the control pad. I think this makes the diary extra cool and adds more excitement to the product.
There are plenty of fun elements to this diary. It has a section called My Pet Friend. Sylvia was able to create a pet, name him, take care of her pet, feed him and decorate the home. The photo mania section of the diary allows your child to decorate photos which fun an exciting animations and there is a workshop section which has over 10 games which hep improve logic, maths and typing skills.
The Vtech Secret Safe Diary has the ability to connect to the computer where your child can connect to the VTech Learning Lodge, earn points and download extra fun and educational games which help your child’s development.
As a parent and a previous teacher, I think this is a fantastic product. The diary has a fun and personal aspect to it, has a fantastic camera and lots of fun activities. My daughter is super pleased and excited and I am sure she will be playing with this diary a lot in the coming weeks.
