Give the Gift of Educational and Fun Learning Cartridges for VTech's InnoTab Learning Tablets {Review & Giveaway}

VTech logo
While it is great to give (and receive) completely new gifts for the holidays, there is something to be said about being able to extend the fun of an item that you or your child already owns.

New supplies for Aunt Jane's scrapbooking, a new case for cousin Tim's phone or, in the case of children everywhere, new games to go with the innovative line of InnoTab Learning App Tablets from VTech!

My kids have adored their InnoTabs ever since their arrival and I love knowing that at least I can provide Big Sister E and Little Sister B some education along with their entertainment. Even better, along with the games and activities that come preloaded on these tablets, VTech makes it easy to mix things up and keep kids coming back for more with their ever-growing collection of InnoTab Software Learning Cartridges!

VTech Innotab cartridges

With options available in every genre for ages 12 months all the way up to 9 years old, there is an InnoTab Learning Cartridge that is sure to get every child excited about the games, e-Books and more contained on them. Even better, with such entertaining characters and themes, kids don't even realize that they are progressively learning key subjects such as math, reading and science all while having fun!

Considering how many times both of my daughters have returned to their InnoTabs and the various Learning Cartridges that we own, I wasn't surprised when they were thrilled to add two more to their collection: InnoTab Ultimate Spider-Man and Doc McStuffins Create & Learn with Doc!

new VTech Innotab cartridges

I truly love the way that VTech makes their cartridges compatible with any version of the InnoTab, so no matter if your child has the original InnoTab or the latest model, they are able to partake in all of the games and activities.

Simply pop in the InnoTab Ultimate Spider-Man Learning Cartridge (designed for ages 4-7) and your child is ready to ride or swing with Spider-Man in an ultimate adventure as he takes on three of his greatest enemies. This unique cartridge is perfect for any Ultimate Spider-Man fan, as it not only includes Spider-Man himself, but other main characters such as Nick Fury, Rhino, Electro, Doctor Octopus and more!

Starting on the main menu, kids can easily choose between the three options that this cartridge entails.

VTech Innotab Spider-Man

First, there is an e-Book that tells the story of Spider-Man vs. The Sinister Six, which is great for when kids simply want to follow along and hang out with Spider-Man.

Second, in Free Play Mode, kids can choose which of the nine fun learning games they want to play. Games introduce spelling, animals, food groups, light reflection, weight and balance, materials, skip counting, logic and more.

Third, in Adventure Mode, kids move through all nine games in order as they follow a central storyline. Simply help Spider-Man reach his next destination and one of the nine games will automatically begin so that you can help rid the city of danger!

VTech Innotab Ultimate Spider-Man review

When they aren't becoming a superhero with Spider-Man, Big Sister E and Little Sister B have also been excited about diving into the world of Doc McStuffins with the Doc McStuffins Create & Learn with Doc! Learning Cartridge (also recommended for ages 4-7).

Giving kids the ability to jump right in and join Doc McStuffins and her toy friends as they decorate the backyard, this cartridge also begins with an uncomplicated main menu that allows users to select which of the three options they would like to play.

VTech Innotab Doc McStuffins

First, there is an adorable e-Book that follows along with Hallie and Stuffie as they try to help Robot Ray in Diagnosis Not Even Close-is.

Second, kids can help Doc in all sorts of creative endeavors, such as decorating banners, creating costumes and making clay models of their favorite characters. Other options include making up original songs by playing different instruments (piano, xylophone, drums and guitar) in a band with Doc's friends or taking silly snapshots of the characters.

Along the way, this cartridge encourages kids to help Doc bring sick toys back to perfect health step-by-step. Then, they are able to open Doc's Big Book of Boo-Boos to see each toy's diagnosis and the accompanying health tip.

All in all, this cartridge and its four learning games introduce health, creativity, music, patterns, reading and more and is great for any young Doc McStuffins fan!

VTech Innotab Doc McStuffins Create and Learn review

Both of these cartridges have been entertaining Big Sister E and Little Sister B since their arrival and they have been perfect for quiet play during their resting and downtime that follows school as well as while traveling. While the girls also return to the previous cartridges that we own, these two new additions have given even greater value to their InnoTabs and have allowed them to grow and challenge their abilities even further.

If you're looking for a way to extend the learning and fun of your child's InnoTab, look no further than VTech's extensive line of educational learning cartridges. Kids can explore exciting content offering age-appropriate games, activities, e-Books and more that allow children to progressively learn key subjects.

Add in the way that topics such as reading, math and vocabulary are seamlessly tied in with creative activities, colorful graphics and camera fun and the result is a toy that can educate as well as inspire a child's imagination!
