My family and I are huge VTech fans, the first little tablet my son had was an older version of the Innotab, he got it for his first birthday and it still works great, but there is always room for an upgrade! The Innotab 3 Plus is value packed for a great fun and learning experience, everything you need to set it up and get it running is included!
The Innotab 3 learning tablet comes pre-installed with 12 apps that open up a whole new world of learning, fun and even a camera that rotates to 180°, my sons favorite thing so far is the video recorder, he loves it, he feel like a little adult!
The tablet has all the parts you need to get started including a rechargeable battery pack which is awesome because batteries and kids cost me a fortune! There is also a stylus pen, cartdridge, USB Chord and instructions booklet.
The first thing I did was add the batteries that came included, there are two battery covers and you just press down the middle button then push on each cover to release them. Once they are released insert the batteries by clipping them in lightly and pushing them down, super simple, nothing complicated!
Next I inserted the cartridge, just slide it until it clips in. The cartridge gives you some game previews and lets you discover more!
Once you turn on the tablet, you have to set it up, which is fairly simple. First you enter the date, then the time, then it asks for your childs name. Once you have all of that set up you can take a picture of your child with the camera, as you can see Dylan was super happy! After you have your child’s picture set up this is where the learning and fun begins!
The actual screen is brighter than this but when I took this picture the sun was shining on it which doesn’t help.. Anyway, once you get to the main screen it gives you the option to connect to the Learning Lodge where you get 2 download credits, we have yet to set that up but I will get onto it this week!
The 12 apps that are included are the camera and video recorder, movie maker, art studio, wonder cam, e-reader with story dictionary, play games app, My Magic Beanstalk game, notes clock, calendar calculator and globe. All of the essentials are included which is great and the beanstalk game is fun too!
The camera that is included also has over 55 special effects and the video is recorder so much fun for making movies, my son is always trying to grab mine and he isn’t very gentle with things so now he has his own!
There is an easy to use on and off button, an outlet for a headset, volume buttons, help button and a home button, they are all a good size and easy to navigate for little fingers. You can also tilt the screen to view it in lanscape mode, Dylans favorite.
I attempted to cut Dylans hair myself, but he wouldn’t sit still and started freaking out, can you see the mess I made? A trip to the hairdressers will be happening next week.. anyway back to my review. My favorite features so far have to be the camera and rechargeable batteries! Dylan has been having non stop fun with the camera! You can also connect mp3 music to the Innotab which is another cool feature, I still need to figure that part out but I’m sure it will be easy.
The Innotab 3 is designed for enjoyment whilst learning and sharpening your child’s skills in math, problem solving and a whole lot more, it’s easy to use, has a great picture and Dylan is loving his new new tablet!
