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.
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.
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!

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.
