I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for VTech and received a VTech InnoTab 2S to facilitate my review.
My daughter has recently taken an interest in wanting to play with my electronics, such as my iPhone or my Kindle. While those devices contain apps for kids games, I would much rather her play with something that is built specifically for children and can endure their wear and tear better than my electronic devices that I use for work. I have been wanting to test out the InnoTab for a while now and finally got the opportunity. The result? I LOVE it.
The VTech InnoTab 2S comes in 2 colors, shown above, and retails for $99.99. With this device you can use your home wi-fi connection to get to VTech’s Learning Lodge and download ebooks, music, games, and more. I love this because on devices not geared toward children, it is very easy for them to access the internet and download things that they shouldn’t be without strict parental controls that often lock the parents out of things as well. With this system your child can create a wish list that they can send to you to purchase the apps or other downloads at your discretion.
This device comes with 2GB of memory so that your kids can store all of their own music, apps, and more! They can also access VTech University, a new educational program that focuses on the educational areas of math, reading, and science. You have the complete ability to track your child’s progress through these educational courses also.
The VTech InnoTab 2S comes in very attractive packaging that shows you many of the features on the outside of the box. This product is designed for children 3-9 years of ages. My daughter is 3, so she is the perfect age to begin using it and will be able to use it for many years!
The package includes the InnoTab, a Read, Play, and Create cartridge, and a cord to connect the device to your computer. The device requires 4 AA batteries that do not come in the package. The InnoTab 2S is compatible with all InnoTab software and there are several cartridges available for the product, as well as downloads available for the product.
The cartridges easily insert into the back of the device by just sliding in.
One of my favorite product features is the stand. You can prop the device up horizontally or vertically, which makes it easy to be hands free during reading or listening to music.
I’m also very excited about the camera feature. My daughter loves to take photos of herself and the animals. This camera actually moves around from the front of the device to the back so you can reach what you are aiming to take a photo of easier.
We adore this device at our home and my daughter has already been playing with it. This will be fantastic to take with us during our holiday travel for something that she can do on our long car ride and I feel great as a parent knowing that she is actually learning something from it.
As an added bonus, this product does work with both PC and Mac for the downloads.
