VTech InnoTab 3S Learning Tablet #Giveaway

Monday, October 14, 2013 Posted by Dina N

The InnoTab 3S from VTech is a Wi-Fi enabled learning tablet for kids 3-9. It comes in blue or pink, and it's loaded with 20 free apps. The toy has a rechargeable battery pack and charger, two styluses, software CD, user's manual, and a USB cable. I received the tablet for review, and one of my readers will win an InnoTab 3S of their own!

My kids have used our Kindle Fire HD for reading and playing but they spent quite a bit of time enjoying the InnoTab 3S. They got the tablet going with no help from me, and took their own pictures with the built-in camera. The camera rotates 180 degrees. Kids can add fun photo effects to their pics and record movies with the video recorder. The screen is a good-sized 5 inches, nice and solid, made to withstand serious use by little fingers. I noticed my daughter had to put more pressure on the stylus compared to the KF she is used to playing with but she figured it out quickly. I can appreciate the string that attaches the stylus to the tablet - no risk of misplacing it, and there is a second stylus as back-up. The stylus has a storage slot in the back. I found I can tab the screen with my finger in lieu of using the stylus, too.

I connected the InnoTab 3S to the computer to register it and download a free app. Set up was very easy - all I had to do was follow the prompts. The Download Center at the VTech Learning Lodge offers e-books, games, music, and more to purchase for $2.99 each. There is an impressive selection for reading, math, science and social studies, just fun, and so on. You can install the Kid Connect app on your smartphone and send text messages to your child - a very cool way to stay connected and encourage their learning. This feature may come in very handy if your child is in daycare or after-school program where kids are allowed to use electronics. Kids can send texts and animated stickers from the InnoTab 3S to smartphones enabled with the free app / subscription for one year. There's also a Kid Connect Premium, sold separately, that enables the InnoTab 3S to send and receive voice messages, drawings and photos to smartphones and other InnoTab 3S tablets.

The InnoTab 3S can be connected to a Wi-Fi network. The kid-safe web browser is probably my favorite feature. No more hovering to make sure my daughter does not click on something she should not while she is using my tablet or computer - via the InnoTab 3S, she can only access pre-approved websites that are kid-friendly. It's easy to add or remove websites but the connection speed for browsing is a bit slow.
 
The rechargeable battery is a nice touch. It lasts us a while between charges, and in a pinch, you can use 4 AA batteries (not included). The 4 GB memory can be expanded to 32 GB with a microSD memory card. There is a built-in microphone and volume controls.

Watch this video from TimeToPlayMag.com highlighting the InnoTab 3S and its great features.

In addition to the camera and video recorder I mentioned, the 20 free apps include an e-reader, MP3 player, Art Studio, Calendar, Calculator, and more. My daughter loves the My Magic Beanstalk game and the Art Studio app for drawing. For the free download, I selected the Puzzle Punch game where my daughter can build pictures of zoo animals with puzzle blocks. Some of the puzzles were a tad too easy for her but she enjoyed the more challenging ones.

The InnoTab 3S retails at MSRP $99.99 and can be purchased from the VTech website as well as at retailers. I came across some great accessories for it at Target - a gel skin for extra protection, a folio case to keep the tablet in, and a set of headphones will come in very handy.
