Holiday Gift Review: InnoTab MAX by VTech

Review by Ruth Ann S
 
The VTech InnoTAB MAX is definitely a fun product, and extremely educational, for both children and adults alike 🙂 .
 

I had the pleasure of using the InnoTab MAX for the past few weeks. We really love this product, and here are some of the reasons.
For starters, Clayton is 22 months old, and can navigate this just as well as I can. Right now he loves the Art Studio (app included with the device). You can add photo backgrounds or patterns, make spin art, or simply draw and add “stickers”. He can also find the videos and watch his favourite episodes of Dora or Bubble Guppies. We paid for the downloads through the App Store.

The rotating camera is a very fun feature and flip top helps the InnoTab MAX stand on it’s own to use on a table. The InnoTab MAX is protected well by the flip top and it is definitely made to last.

We haven’t even touched on all the features that are available on this tablet, and I am certainly looking forward to adding more apps and learning software for him as he grows.

 
I feel this is certainly worth the money, and have seen it on sale for as low as $99 this season. That’s $20 below MSRP. The Cartridges available for this system range in price from $16.99 – $24.99 and include learning and games for ages 2-12.
