I received a complimentary VTech InnoTab 3S in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Back in June, we had the chance to try out the VTech InnoTab 2S. I wrote about how much we loved it, but there were a few things we were really wishing for. Well, either I’m totally psychic or the development team at VTech is, because those features are exactly what they added to the brand new VTech InnoTab 3S! I love when companies are able to predict what their customers will want the most.
What’s new and exciting in the VTech InnoTab 3S
Let’s get right down to it, shall we? If you read my previous review, you know that the VTech InnoTab 2S was pretty awesome. It’s an amazing educational system for kids as young as 3 and as old as 10 or so. My son is 8 and he found plenty of awesome games and features.
With the InnoTab 3S, you still get all the awesomness of the previous version but with a few new great features. What are they? I happen to have a lovely bullet-point list for you!
- Rechargeable battery pack!! You have to scream that one out in excitement! This was my ONLY complaint about the InnoTab 2S. I was running through batteries pretty fast. With the InnoTab 3S, you don’t have to worry about stockpiling batteries. Just pop in the packs and plug in the InnoTab when they start to run low. The charge lasts quite a while!
- Kid Connect - This is a really fun feature that allows you to text your child from your own phone or tablet. Just install the free Kid Connect app on your side and set it up on the InnoTab. Send messages back and forth! You can even add fun smiley faces and other neat graphics. Kids can also connect to their friends who have InnoTab 3S tablets. You control who they can talk to, so it’s a safe environment for your child.
- Kid-Safe Browsing- Kids can browse the internet! Well, some of it anyway. The InnoTab 3S browser allows kids to connect to approved safe sites that have been vetted by educational experts. You can also add your own sites to the safe list. This is great for kids who are too young to really have access to family computers.
- Loads of built-in content- Kids can start playing with the InnoTab 3S right out of the box. The battery packed was already all charged up on ours, and there is loads of great content built in to the system. Jacob’s favorite is the camera and video camera feature. He loves capturing crazy moments. The PopUp 3D Art Studio is also a huge hit. Jake also loves the Wish List Maker because he’s like his Mama (have I mentioned that I have 7 perfectly categorized Amazon Wish Lists?).
- Massive selection in the Learning Lodge Library. The great thing about the InnoTab 3S is that you don’t have to go to the store, stand in line and wait until you get home to start adding new content. Through the Learning Lodge, you can find tons of age-appropriate games for your child right away. Plus, the prices range from just a couple of dollars on up. Get basic single-game apps or whole suites of fun character-themed activities. VTech is always adding new stuff, so you’ll never run out of fun games to play!
Overall, I’m very pleased with the new features added to the VTech InnoTab 3S. I’m also happy that they kept all the previous features that made the InnoTab 2S such a hit with my son. This will make a perfect holiday gift for kids this year! Check out this video to learn more!
