Video Review on the VTECH Innotab 3S
One of our favorite features is the new texting app. While it took a few minutes to install it was easy to go through the steps. We chose an id that I set up, and used my email so that all messages through the app need to be approved by me. You take a photo to set up your avatar and add it to a cute little outfit like a bear, ballerina, super hero, or knight. When u touch the avatars they laugh and giggle. My little guy loves this. Your able to send a select few stickers to each other as well as text messages. With a premium upgrade your able to send even more stickers as well as voice messages, photos and drawing messages.
I took a few minutes to explore the Innotab 3S my self and here are my personal thoughts. I think the internet safe browsing is a fabulous upgrade for the tablet. It allows for me to add sites that I feel offer safe content for him to play on. The tablet is a bit touchy for site selections and it does require a bit of pressure to select items. Which can be good and bad as a feature. My son doesn’t mind the time it takes to load sites. It has a swirling circle that he follows or loading dots that he counts up on. For me it seems to take a while but you know adults we’ve become spoiled with 4G internet. I love that Vtech Innotab 3S allows for me to see his progress in the parental portal and offers information for me to help him improve by knowing what his weakness and strengths are. I think that Vtech has made some fabulous improvements and it’s good to see that they are answering prayers of concerned parents offering safe ways for kids to use the internet and parents to select that content. Here are just a few of the sites that I loaded to my son’s InnoTab 3S for him to access. I limited use to 4 hours and certain times of the day. This was done right from the tablet and I even accessed the site first to get the thumb nail photo to show up so he can see what the site is until he learns how to read.
