Stay Connected on the VTech InnoTab 3S with VTech Kid Connect {VTech InnoTab 3S Giveaway!}

According to a new survey conducted on behalf of VTech by BabyCenter, the #1 pregnancy and parenting destination worldwide, nearly 90% of moms find it stressful to be away from their children because of work, business trips, chores or other commitments.

While we're all familiar with things like Skype or FaceTime, those aren't always viable options, considering that younger children don't have their own computer or smartphone to make for easy communication. But what if there was a kid-friendly way to help alleviate moms' anxiety and help them stay connected to their children while apart?

We're talking anytime, anywhere – whether our young offspring are at daycare, a neighbor's house or across the country visiting grandparents. Plus, add in that this innovative gadget was also safe, educational, entertaining, easy to use, and just for kids and you'd have the one-of-a-kind InnoTab 3S Wi-Fi Learning App Tablet.

VTech InnoTab 3S giveaway

As highlighted in my InnoTab 3S review last month, this new device helps your child take learning to entirely new places with its eBooks, educational games, creative activities, learning apps (there are hundreds available to download!), tools and more.

But not only does the InnoTab 3S come with a 5" color touch screen, a 2-megapixel 180° rotating camera, a tilt sensor for gameplay, an MP3 music player, an art studio, safe internet access and more, it also includes VTech's ground-breaking communication app, VTech Kid Connect.

InnoTab Kid Connect

This innovative addition (available only on the InnoTab 3S) is the fast and easy way to brings families together and help parents stay connected to their kids when apart – anytime, anywhere – through both tablet-to-mobile and tablet-to-tablet communication.

Kids can send text messages and animated stickers right to their parents' smartphones and, in return, parents can send text messages and stickers back to their child's InnoTab 3S, opening up an interactive dialogue.

Plus, kids can stay connected to their friends and siblings by sending messages safely between two InnoTab 3S tablets. And since all communication is approved by parents, they can rest assured their child is only communicating with people they know and trust.

VTech Kid Connect really is a breakthrough in kid-safe family networking!


But, wait. There's more!

The InnoTab 3S automatically comes with a one year subscription of Kid Connect, which allows kids and parents to send text messages and stickers. However, for the first two weeks after registration of the InnoTab 3S, a Deluxe Apps package with Premium Kid Connect is available for $14.99 (the package also includes Movie Maker, a $7.99 value, a fun and exciting stop-motion animation app that lets kids become movie directors). Once the two week promotional period is over, Premium Kid Connect can be purchased separately for $14.99.

In addition to all of the great options that Kid Connect offers, the Premium Kid Connect app offers enhanced features that allow kids and parents to send not only text messages and stickers, but voice messages, photos and drawings to each other.

And, after having the opportunity to try out Premium Kid Connect, I have to say that these extras are a whole lot of fun. I love seeing the funny pictures and drawings and listening to the cute messages that my girls have sent!

Princess B clarified that this is me petting the kitty, just in case you couldn't tell from her artwork.

Overall, this portable, multi-media tablet (available in blue or pink) is able to provide fun and education for 3- to 9-year-olds through the opportunity to learn basic skills including math, vocabulary, spelling, reading, logic, drawing and more. But adding in the bonus of helping parents and kids stay connected no matter when and where they are is really the icing on the technology cake.

Retailing for $99.99 from VTech or on Amazon, the VTech InnoTab 3S Wi-Fi Learning App Tablet really will help your child take learning to the next level. And, by utilizing VTech Kid Connect, it just might help better your overall family dynamic as well.

Find out more about this and all of VTech's innovative products by visiting VTech's website and connecting with them on Facebook and Twitter. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon have a child-friendly piece of amazing technology for the child in their life as well, because...

One lucky person will win a 
VTech InnoTab 3S Wi-Fi Learning App Tablet!

JulieAnneByers said...

I bought the previous version of this product for my son's 2nd birthday. He loved it, but it didn't make it through his rough play. It was around for maybe a couple months before he had broken the screen. Then it was such a pain in the butt to get through to the customer service people, I just gave up on getting it replaced. I payed 100 dollars for the thing. Maybe my son was just too young for it.

Kristan Price said...

The kids connect features seems like something that would be fun for older kids. It would allow them to text their friends and parents. But my kids are too young to use it. It would be a feature they could use in a few years.

Sara Joy said...

I think it's a great and fun feature!

MELINA said...

I like the kid safe wifi connection feature. I know they will safely surf the web.

I'm torn with Kid Connect really. I think it's a great thing for kids with parent's that travel a lot like military families and things.

On the other hand it might be disastrous with kids texting or sending things while parents are in meetings or things like that.

The headphones that come with it for the long car trips to gramma's house.

Robyn said...

I love that it is interactive and gives the kids a little bit of independence, but is still safe because it is parent protected!

AMY said...

I like being able to connect with my children, but worry that kids don't really learn to interact face to face with all this technology.

Julia Cosgrove said...

I love the safety features of this.
