We were lucky enough to be contacted to review a VTech® InnoTab 3 Learning App Tablet. Before getting it, I had read online that it was good for ages 3-9. I wondered if it that really was going to be the case in our house, since we have a 3 year old and an almost 9 year old.
Devin quickly took ownership when the InnoTab arrived, and for a little boy that doesn't play video games...he caught on quick. Within the hour he was taking selfies with the camera, and had learned how to play some of the games. He was taking it everywhere, and was entertained for hours. Carpool has never been more quiet. Hallelujah!!
I will admit I was worried about Devin breaking it within 24 hours. Devin is known to not be very gentle with toys, he managed to drop it 10 too many times. It still works, and works well. Bonus points for VTech for making a toy that can withstand Devin.
We learned fast that we were going to have to schedule time for Savannah to play with it, because Devin was being a toy hog. Not gonna lie, they haven't shared this well. I may have been excited when the batteries died after 2 days. Devin even went as far as to wake up at 6:00 AM to get it before Savannah could.
I asked Savannah what her favorite things on the InnoTab 3 are, and she couldn't narrow it down to less than 5 things. I think the top favorite for both kids is the camera. Savannah also loves that it is touch screen, has both reading and games, the calculator, and a place for taking notes.
I may have also played with it a few nights after the kids went to bed. It is really addicting. I loved that you can record a message for when you turn your tab on. Devin got so excited in the morning when he heard my voice saying "Hello Devin!". Sometimes it is the little things that make it fun.
Here is a little bit of the details on the tab...
