Vtech Innotab 3S Review

I received this product from VTech in exchange for my honest review. Opinions are my own.

My youngest son (he’s 9) had been asking for a tablet for a while before we received the VTech Innotab 3S for review. This fun educational tablet for kids ages 3-9 has many great features. When we first unpackaged it my son was so excited to check it out!

VTech Innotab 3S

The VTech Innotab 3S is the newest children’s tablet in the VTech Innotab line. Let me tell you about some of the great features it offers…

VTech Innotab 3S

The neatest thing about this tablet (in my opinion) is that it has Wi-Fi so my son can connect with us through our smartphones. My son can send us texts and photos right from his Innotab 3S using VTech Kid Connect. He can also browse kid-safe, parent approved websites through the tablet which makes me feel safe about him being online. He could also connect with others who have a VTech Innotab 3S anytime, anywhere.

The VTech Learning Lodge is like the app store for the tablet. There kids can download a variety of educational apps (it requires a password for paid apps). The password protected parental control feature on the Innotab 3S allows parents to set a daily usage limit, approve websites and monitor what their kids are looking at online. The Learning Lodge features more than 600 games, videos, e-books and music for your child to download and enjoy. There is also a Wishlist Maker on the tablet that allows kids to send their parents emails about the apps that they’d like to download. The paid apps are mostly inexpensive with the licensed apps being a bit more pricey. However, the tablet comes pre-loaded with 20 apps to give your kids a good start.

The Innotab 3S also features a rotating camera that allows kids to easily take photos of everything around them, including themselves. The 2.0 megapixel camera also takes videos and offers enhanced photo features for more fun.

You can also purchase cartridges for the VTech Innotab 3S featuring your child’s favorite characters such as the goofy monsters from Monsters, Inc. Each cartridge is made for different stages of your child’s learning.

The VTech Innotab 3S won’t go through a bunch of batteries because the battery pack is charged with the AC adaptor that is included with some of the tablets. The charger can also be purchased separately. The rechargeable battery pack lasts 9 whole hours on one charge and all of the charging is done inside the tablet.

My son has had hours of fun with his VTech Innotab 3S and I think it would make a great holiday gift this season. Priced at around $100 it is a great value. Visit VTech online to learn more about the VTech Innotab 3S. This tablet is available in blue and white or pink and white so it’s perfect for both boys and girls.
