vtech innotabMy little fella just started his summer break. We all know that kids lose a lot of knowledge over the summer- Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Some students also lose more than two months in reading achievement. (Cooper, 1996) Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.

v techI personally am not a huge fan of plugging kids in all day, or letting children have free reign over mom and dad’s tablets and phones, they are expensive and not made to be used as toys. So many kids are plugged in all day as it is, not spending enough time playing outside or playing games or with mom and dad. However, a little educational play goes a long way, and there is a time and a place for technology. In today’s modern world, there is a need to let kids have technology to a degree. Why not let them use tablets made for kids, like the VTech Innotab.

 

vtechThe VTech InnoTab 2S has safe, educational content hat you choose yourself, as well as the ability to take pictures, video, do artwork, and more. In certain games, you can replace your favorite characters face with your own or whomever you choose. There is also an MP3 player, and you can download and read e-books as well.
Released at the same price point as the original InnoTab, VTech has refreshed it’s product to include a more modern tablet feel. Including a new rotatable camera and video recorder, secure Wi-Fi and personalization utilized by up to four users.

With the InnoTab 2S all attention has been diverted from my iPad and onto the 5” touch screen of the InnoTab. Touch, tilt, drag-and-drop or tap, the compact touch screen provides all the excitement of a tablet without the worry of them dropping it or stumbling upon an inappropriatewebsite; the InnoTab 2 Learning App Tablet only connects to the Learning Lodge Navigator enabling kids to play, learn, and explore, in a controlled and safe environment.

Included in the initial purchase of the InnoTab 2 is a one tilt sensor game, one augmented reality game, one e-book, art studio app, notes app, friends list, calendar and calculator to get started along with three free downloads when you connect the device to the Learning Lodge Navigator and register the product. Then of course you can purchase additional apps as you go. Currently, there are more than 200 additional apps, including games, e-books and much more, ready to be downloaded via the VTech Learning Lodge Navigator. Also keep in mind all InnoTab games are compatible with the InnoTab 2S.

The Innotab 2 contains 2GB on board memory and expandable SD card slot available to accommodate SD cards up to 32GB. The InnoTab requires 4 AA batteries or an AC Adapter, there is also a rechargeable battery pack available. It does eat batteries, so I personally recommend the adapter or rechargeable battery pack.
We also got to review Toy Story 3 and Madagascar 3 games, available for purchase separately.
The Toy Story game gives you three interactive, educational activities that use the color touch screen or tilt sensor to play, along with an e-book. The games incorporate learning and fun helping teach letters, shapes, and counting. In the animated e-book kids can read along with the story of Toy Story 3 while the pop-up dictionary gives animated definitions of words found in the e-book.
In Madagascar 3, the characters are brought to life, helping children develop problem solving and math skills with its 3 interactive games. You also get a vocabulary building e-book which also encourages reading skills.
Parents can track their child’s progress through the Learning Lodge Progress Log, offer encouragement and share in their pride when kids reach new learning milestones while using VTech.
