Stay Connected with Your Kid via the VTech InnoTab 3S Learning Tablet #Giveaway

Wednesday, November 06, 2013 Posted by Dina N

A few weeks ago, I posted a review of the new InnoTab 3S Learning Tablet from VTech. In case you have not come across this toy yet, the VTech InnoTab 3S is a Wi-Fi enabled learning tablet for kids 3-9. My kids play with it daily and even have me check on their beanstalk game while they are busy with schoolwork.

One of the best features of the InnoTab 3S is an app that allows parents to stay connected with their kid via their smartphone or tablet. You can install the Kid Connect app on your smartphone and send text messages and animated stickers to your child - one cool way to check on them and encourage their learning at the same time. Kids can text you back via the InnoTab 3S to let you know how they are doing. As I mentioned in my review, this feature may come in handy if your kiddo is in daycare or after-school program where electronic handheld games are allowed.

There's also a Premium Kid Connect, sold separately, that enables the InnoTab 3S to send and receive more than just texts and stickers. While I have not tried it yet - my current devices are not compatible with this app - here's some useful information on what you can do with Premium Kid Connect.

Disclosure: Information for this post and a giveaway prize were provided by VTech. I will receive a promotional item for posting about Premium Kid Connect. Opinions are all mine.

With secure and easy-to-use tablet-to-mobile communication, parents and children can exchange voice and text messages, pictures, drawings and stickers in real time. Plus, kids can stay connected to their friends and siblings by exchanging messages safely between two InnoTab 3S tablets anywhere in the world (with Wi-Fi), regardless of how far apart they are.

The InnoTab 3S comes with a one year subscription of Basic Kid Connect, which allows kids and parents to send text messages and stickers. In addition, the Premium Kid Connect app offers enhanced features that allow kids and parents to send not only text messages and stickers, but voice messages, photos and drawings to each other. For the first two weeks after registration of the InnoTab 3S, a Deluxe Apps package with Premium Kid Connect is available for $14.99. The package also includes Movie Maker (a $7.99 value), a fun and exciting stop-motion animation app that lets kids become movie directors. Once the two week promotional period is over, Premium Kid Connect can be purchased separately for $14.99.

Did you know?
  • Kid Connect is ONLY available on the InnoTab 3S.
  • Nearly 90% of moms find it stressful to be away from their children because of work, business trips, chores or other commitments, according to the results of a new survey conducted on behalf of VTech by BabyCenter, the #1 pregnancy and parenting destination worldwide.
  •  Kid Connect helps alleviate that anxiety by keeping parents connected to their children when apart – anytime, anywhere – whether they are at daycare, a neighbor’s house or across the country visiting grandparents.

    I would give to my nephew and his dad likes to call to heck on the kids a few times a day while he is at work. He would love to be able to connect with him personally on his smartphone. They both would really enjoy this

    Would love to be able to send text messages to my little guy while I am at work! He would absolutely love it!

    I know my almost 6 year old would love this. We homeschool and sometimes we need to have little break time in between lessons so I can teach another child, so a fun learning activity app would be great for those little bits of time. thanks!

    My daughter would love the camera feature! She is such a shutterbug. Maybe I'll be able to get her off of my phone's camera!

    my daughter would use the app to talk to me and send me pictures. and love the rechargeable battery, tired of buying batteries - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

    I like that my daughter could have her own tablet & camera all in one just for her to use. & I think it's cute how we could connect it w/ my husband's phone to send stickers back & forth. My daughter is almost 3 so no texts or at least readable ones yet!

  17. April G said...

    My favorite feature, as the parent, is probably the rechargeable batteries! What a great idea! I'm sure my kids will love the camera though. :)

  18. Rebecca Orr said...

    I like that that it has it's own camera that my granddaughter can use just for herself. I also like it provides a safe place place to go online.

    Oh we would love to use the Kid Connect app! I think this is so neat and what a great way to keep in touch with your kids while working!! Great for grandparents too to keep in touch with the kids! Oh such a neat idea the connect app is!

    I would use the app to send messages while little gal is in her room reading, or when she is at her other grandmothers house or sleeping over at a friends house, to tell her I love her. I love that you don't need purchase additional batteries. She loves to play around and take pictures and this would be a wonderful way to share them with me on my phone.

    I like the app because you can keep in touch with your child anywhere. This would be a great thing to eliminate fear of being at the babysitter or an unfamiliar place.
