VTech Innotab Max.
Years of Learning Fun.
You may recognize this kids tablet from a listing in my Holiday Gift Guide and it is absolutely FABULOUS! It’s a New Year and if you didn’t get a chance to get your little one a tablet for Christmas–now’s your chance!
But first, let me tell you ALL about it! The InnoTab MAX is the fastest 7″ kids’ tablet that gives your child the best of both learning worlds with a unique combination of VTech’s educator-supported learning library and carefully selected educational Android apps for years of learning fun!
VTech’s 4th generation kids’ learning tablet has tons of awesome new features that include a multi-touch screen with a high-resolution display, kid-safe Wi-Fi and Android™ operating system. Its adaptable design with a tough, kid-friendly cover can be easily removed for a more grown-up feel. Although, I like it because it adds an extra layer of protection.
The color is fantastic and appealing to little girls that love pink, it’s also available in blue for boys or girls that would prefer it. I love how it comes with a stylus, it allows for a good grip and has really great sensitivity to the screen. It’s super easy for little hands to use!
A Powerful Learning Tool.
The Innotab MAX has a huge library of expert-supported curricula with more than 650 age-appropriate apps including an ever-expanding selection of hand-picked Android learning apps that are perfect for kids of all ages. Apart from offering tons of tools to learn with, the tablet itself is made to be durable. Its design is sturdy, colorful and pretty thin. Especially considering it is a child’s tablet!
Did Someone Say Text?
Yes, that’s right. There’s the VTech Kid Connect™ app, which is one of the COOLEST things I’ve ever seen. I downloaded the app and now I am able to send messages to Mimi’s tablet. We can send pictures, draw pictures and send audio texts.
For a little one, being able to text her Mom is something she went gaga over! It has pre-written messages for them to choose from too, especially if they are still too little to write them themselves. We had a good time sending messages to one another and I’m sure we will have much more fun!
