Are you kids begging for their own tablet, or are they always wanting to play with yours? Then I have the perfect gift idea for you! The Vtech InnoTab 3S Learning Tablet is not only educational, but it is a ton of fun for kids too! It has all the features that kids enjoy playing with on regular tablets. In addition to being able to play educational games, the InnoTab 3S has an e-reader and a camera for taking photos and recording video. It comes with 20 built-in apps and you can also add to the fun by purchasing additional cartridges or downloading apps from VTech’s Learning Lodge.
I was sent a VTtech InnoTab 3S for my youngest daughter to try a couple of weeks ago and she has been playing with it non-stop. This learning tablet is made specifically for kids ages 3-9. My daughter is on the older end of that range, so I was a bit worried she might get bored with it after a bit. However I didn’t have to worry as there are plenty of features to keep her entertained. Her older sister has even enjoyed playing with it a bit.
Some of the Key Features of the InnoTab® 3S Wi-Fi Learning Tablet:
- Rechargeable battery pack with AC adapter. Love this feature as we go through a ton of batteries in this house!
- Kid-safe web browser. There is already a list of approved websites included, but parents can also approve additional websites. This features is password protected so kids can’t add websites themselves.
- Built-in camera that allows kids to take photos and videos. The camera lens rotates 180 degrees.
- VTech Kid Connect– an exclusive communication app that allows kids to be connected with their parents and friends through both tablet-to-mobile and tablet-to-tablet communication
- Comes with 20 apps already installed and you can access VTech’s Learning Lodge™ app store for even more apps, games, books, and videos to add to your InnoTab. Over 350 titles are currently available with more being added all the time.
- Reasonably priced at just under $100
What I love about the InnoTab as a parent:
- The games are educational but still fun for kids. There are options for both younger kids and older ones. This is especially helpful if you have more than one kid who will be playing with it.
- The VTech InnoTab 3S is easy to set up and my daughter was able to play with it within minutes of getting it out of the package.
- I love that it has a web browser that can be restricted to only the sites I want my child to see. My youngest doesn’t get as much computer time as the rest of my kids because they are older and need our family computer for homework. So I love that the Innotab 3S allows her to surf the internet without tying up the family computer.
- There is a setting that allows you to restrict the amount of time each day that your child can spend on the internet. It also allows you to restrict access to certain times of the day.
- The battery compartment has a sliding lever, so you don’t have to worry about younger kids messing with the batteries or the compartment popping open any time the tablet is dropped.
- The InnoTab has ample memory (4 gb). You can also add a micro SD card (not included) if you need additional memory. So far I haven’t found this to be necessary, but it is nice to have the option if you need it.
I asked my daughter what her favorite features were and she told me that she loves the Art Studio app. She has also enjoyed the camera, surfing the web, and using it to play her favorite music. She also loves taking pictures and using the built-in photo editor to add fun effects and decorations to her pictures.
The VTech InnoTab 3S Learning Tablet has been a big hit with my daughter and I don’t think we have even begun to scratch the surface of all its features. If your child is always begging to play with your tablet, I highly recommend the InnoTab 3S so they can have one of their own!
