It still amazes me how much technology that my children have access to on a daily basis! I certainly don’t want them to be behind their peers, and we’re clearly not against screen time, but I have no interest in handing over my laptop or our tablet to young children who are still known to have sticky hands or a tendency to jump up off the couch, completely forgetting about what might be in their lap. My friends at VTech Canada are playing Santa by sending their InnoTab MAX in pink for my daughters to unwrap this year!
Recommended for ages 3-9, the InnoTab MAX has some amazing features! Some of my favourites include:
- 7″ multi-touch screen with high-resolution display (1024×600)
- Rechargeable Lithium Battery
- Detachable cover protects the tablet and also acts as a stand
- Kid-safe Wi-Fi allows for browsing the web and exploring VTech-selected content including links to games, videos, and websites
- 8GB memory – expandable up to 40GB with 32GB microSD card (not included)
- 1.2 GHz processor and Android 4.2.2 operating system makes the InnoTab comparable to adult tablets
Plus there is a camera, video and MP3 capabilities and tons more! The InnoTab MAX cover is very strong and the handle is a nice way to encourage kids to carry it nicely. I really appreciate that there is a rechargeable battery AND that there is a USB cable and adapter included, so I can plug the InnoTab MAX into an outlet instead of having to attach it to my laptop or desktop.
I’ve had a bit of time to get it set up – parents, make sure to have this charged and your children’s accounts set up so that it’s ready to go when it gets unwrapped! – and overall it’s pretty intuitive to use. I really like all of the parental controls that you can choose to use: everything from whether or not the InnoTab MAX can use WiFi to what websites are allowed, and my personal favourite: time limits. That’s right, you can set it so that each individual child can only use the Internet or the InnoTab MAX for a certain amount of time each day, and you can choose which hours of the day it will work. No sneaking some tablet time after lights out with this! The five free apps are a nice touch too, I just wish that I could have found a way to sort the apps by price so I could find the free ones faster.
The InnoTab MAX sells for a suggested price of $119.99 and can be found at stores like Toys R Us, Target, Best Buy, Future Shop, Sears, Amazon.ca and Walmart.ca. You can find page: VTech Canada on Facebook and VTech Canada on Twitter, as well as VTech Canada on YouTube.
One lucky CANADIAN reader will win an InnoTab MAX in their choice of pink or blue!
