With all of the techy gadgets out there available to adults, it’s only natural that our children become intrigued enough to want to give them a try.
But considering the expense of these innovative products, it’s hard to just hand them over knowing they can easily be broken, and if you’re anything like me, you typically say ‘sorry, but no!”
Well, thanks to Vtech and their amazing new Innotab 2S wi-fi learning app tablet, you don’t have to say ‘no’!
What’s great about this awesome child-inspired gadget is that it combines the high tech features of mom and dad’s tablet with the durability of a toy. It’s truly exciting to see a great product like this, especially just in time for Christmas!
My favorite feature is that children can access interactive e-books that include vivid colors, narration, sounds and music. And for educational purposes, words are highlighted as your child reads. If he or she gets stuck on a particular word, the Innotab 2S offers pronunciation assistance when the word is touched.
Each e-book also includes a story dictionary so your child can learn the meaning of new words.
What fun would a techy gadget be without games? The Innotab 2S offers a library of included games, and activities, as well as onboard apps that are sure to keep your child entertained for hours.
One super exciting feature of the art studio app (in particular) is that as your child listens to music and views video, they can draw right on the LCD screen with their finger or by using one of the included styluses. If your child loves to color, they’ll enjoy the virtual coloring book pages that come to life with the tilt of the Innotab 2S. Super cool!
A fun, and valuable asset to the Innotab 2S, the Vtech University, is an online program that focuses on the fundamental areas of reading, math and science — 3 major subjects that, in the U.S. children continue to fall behind in.
Vtech University offers fun and engaging curriculum for children ages 3 – 9 and allows parents to log in and track their child’s progress as they go along. If, for some reason your child can’t complete a project, they can easily go back to it later and pick up, right where they left off.
This is a great way for children to get a head start on their education!
It’s a piece of technology so of course the Innotab 2S comes complete with built-in wi-fi which allows your child to safely connect to the internet for access to new games, e-books and apps. The Learning Lodge Navigator not only gives your child access to a huge library of fun, but you as a parent can check in on your child’s progress as they learn a variety of lessons and build milestones. Gotta love that!
Within the Learning Lodge Navigator your child can create a wish list of apps he or she would love to have and through email generation, you can be alerted on the apps they want to buy. Oh boy, is that good or bad? hehee!
Lastly, I love that Vtech offers software cartridges (sold separately) that gives a greater variety of e-books, games, and creative activities where your child can play and learn. Choose from popular favorites such as Scooby-Doo, Mickey Mouse, Dora the Explorer, Toy Story and much more.
Available in blue and pink
The Vtech Innotab 2S comes complete with 2 styluses, a read play & create cartridge, Learning Lodge Navigator installation cd, USB cable, and users manual.
When Vtech created this super fun gadget they pretty much thought of everything — I love everything about it, especially how durable it is. It’s sized just right for small hands but it’s very entertaining, while still providing tons of educational learning. Just don’t tell your kids! haha.
Young children may require assistance with downloading apps and activities but once it’s set up, everything else pretty much comes natural. Be prepared to hear some squeals and giggles!
The Vtech Innotab 2S wi-fi learning app tablet can be purchased directly at www.vtechkids.com for $99.00.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your child that’s not only amazingly fun but educational, I highly recommend the VTech Innotab 2S. It’s SO worth the price and much, much more! Your kids will love it.
