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.
