Giveaway: Vetch InnoTab 2S Wi-Fi Learning App Tablet is Built for Learning
They say that kids lose a portion of the content that they learned in the last school year when they are off for three months during the summer. I’m concerned about my son that is soon to be kindergartner regressing and losing the content he has just absorbed from preschool. I want to keep my kids learning and engaged this summer so were doing it with the Vtech InnoTab 2S Wi-Fi Learning App tablet built just for kids which was offered for review from Vtech. InnoTab 2S offers secure Wi-Fi connection to browse, purchase, and download hundreds of apps that will have your kids engaged through the summer with fun and learning.
When you register your InnoTab 2S on the learning Lodge Navigator you receive-
- 1 yr limited warranty
- 2 free downloads (Premium Content not included) although when I logged in it said 5
- Licensed registration of the Art Studio, Face Race, and Smart tools suite apps.
It’s so important to keep kids learning especially during the summer to avoid summer brain drain.
Summer Brain Drain occurs when students are away from the structured learning environment of a classroom and lose the months of knowledge they gained during the school year because they are not regularly exercising their brains. According to research from the Center for Summer Learning at Johns Hopkins University, students typically lose one to two months of reading and math skills during the summer break. But there are many things parents can do to help keep children’s minds active during the summer months and avoid these setbacks.
The InnoTab2S comes with several game play options from E-readers to Games, Art Studio, Camera /Video Recorder, Microphone, Music, Photos videos, MP3 Player, Calculator, Clock, Calendar, Note pad and more.
Selecting and playing games is easy enough for my 5 yr old and yet can be challenging for my 7 yr old by simply changing the game play option from easy to hard. In addition to the five free InnoTab2S games that you when you initially plug in your device to the computer There are games available for purchase and down load as well as cartridges available to purchase online or retailers. Games range from Free or low end of $2.99 – $24.99. Your favorite characters from shows on Pixar, Seasame Street, Disney, Vtech and more…
WI-FI access from Innotab doesn’t mean your child gets free access to browsing on the internet it simply means that you can log into the VTech Website to download games after you have already purchased them off the computer. So if uncle Joe wants to purchase the little one a game or movie app they can do so and you can download it with the Innotab2S connected to the internet of your home Wi-Fi connection without having to connect it to the computer. This could be a plus for those who don’t have Wi-Fi at home you can simply take it some where that does and download from there. There’s a wish list app available for kids to browse games and apps to select so that you can purchase them when you would like to and don’t need to ask your child which one’s they would like.
180 degree Rotating camera is very cool
Rotating camera feature is pretty neat you can take photos to the front of you, side of you or take a photo of your self. The photos come out a bit dark at first but some same to light up and they really look nice.

VTech InnoTab 2S is currently available Today on Amazon.com for only $69.99 plus free shipping.
Other accessories available for InnoTab2S are VTech Ac Adapter, and Gel Skins, & headphones. I suggest getting a SD card for more memory for storing photos, and videos. My kids go crazy and take a lot of photos and videos for entertainment with friends. Pick up the 32 GB SD Card to expand the 2GB memory currently available on the Innotab2S.
Game needs 4 AA batteries but can run on a VTECH Adopted. Rechargeable feature not an option on this model. We’ve already been through a set of Energizer in less than a week of play so investing in a Vtech adapter cord is wise for at home play.
My boys love the game options. The games have all the fun characters they love like Thomas the Train, Toy Story, Madagascar, Cars and more. The internal kick stand is really great for setting up for play and watching videos. Comes with 2 stylus. One that inserts in the back of the InnoTab2S and another to put up for safe keeping. You can get a string to attach the stylus but there isn’t one that comes with it.
We were sent Disney Pixar Toy Story (ages 3-6 yrs old) and Madagascar game cartridges for review. Both games have fun reading apps, learning games and creativity to keep kids learning and entertained. My youngest son loves the Toys Story reading and games. He’s just learning how to add and usually asks me for help. The more he plays the games more he’s learning. Overall we love the Innotab 2S features. This is the very first of the Vtech Innotabs that we’ve owned and the boys really enjoy it. We can’t wait to load up the kids tablet of more games, activities and fun to keep them entertained on long car rides, rainy days, and fun with friends.
