Do you remember your first computer? I still remember when my mother came home with a computer for my sisters and I. At the time it was cool to have a computer in your home, so naturally we were excited to try it out. I still remember that it took us hours to figure out how to use it. Fast forward many, many years and our little ones are now surrounded by high tech electronics that make my first computer seem like a dinosaur.
About a year and a half ago, prior to owning an iPhone (I still don’t know how I ever lived without one), my daughter used to play with my old phone, completely puzzled that nothing would happen when she touched the screen. It seems that at a young age she was so used to my in-laws touchscreen phone even though I had barely even held an iPhone in my life! We now embrace her interest in technology with fun, educational games and gadgets that aid in her development. Our new InnoTab 2S is just the tool we’ve been looking for to provide hours of engaging, educational fun.
When we purchased our iPad early this year little did we know it would become loaded with games and apps for the kids. I have one app on the iPad..ONE! The kids? I couldn’t even tell you off the top of my head. Needless to say we have been looking for a tablet like game system for the kids to use. The InnoTab 2S has far exceeded our expectations and although we are new to using it, I’m very pleased with the features it offers.
The InnoTab 2S came with one cartridge along with several other activities and features installed in the tablet, you can purchase new apps and cartridges separately. The cartridge is loaded with a reading activity, a learning game, and a creativity feature called Color & Pop -my daughters favorite! Some other great features my daughter is enjoying is the ability to listen to music, download books, take photos and videos, and the tilt sensor (that she’s used with a balancing game that was installed in the InnoTab).
As a parent I like that my daughter is engaged in the educational activities and is always excited to show me what she created in the color art studio or what game she did well on. The Learning Lodge Navigator also allows me to track her progress. The InnoTab 2S can register four profiles, making it easy for each child to enjoy their own preferences. The best part about the InnoTab 2S is that it has a secure wifi connection, allowing you to download new games and apps without connecting to a computer. There’s also an SD card slot allowing you to extend your memory capabilities.
The only downside that we can say about the tablet is that it didn’t come with a rechargeable cord. Replacing batteries isn’t a big deal but it could be a downfall on long trips. We haven’t had to experience that yet but a charging cord is definitely something we would have liked to see with the InnoTab 2S.
Overall its a high quality tablet, with a bright color touch screen, and numerous great features that keep my daughter engaged and entertained. If you’re looking for a tablet for your child this holiday season I highly recommend the InnoTab 2S.
Thanks for stopping by!
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for VTech and received a VTech InnoTab 2S to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and my daughter really, really likes her new InnoTab 2s!
