VTech InnoTab 3 Review
When I was asked to review the VTech InnoTab 3 my daughter and I were ecstatic. She has the InnoTab 2S already and loves it. I didn’t tell her until the actual InnoTab 3 arrived and the look on her face was priceless. She even said, “Mommy, I LOVE your job!” Talk about bringing a smile to my face. My daughter is 4 years old but has been using my iPad 2 since she was like 1 1/2 years old. Needless to say, she is very tech savy.
What makes the V-Tech InnoTab® 3 special? It has all the things you would put into a kids tablet and it is ruggedly made especially for kids.
Features of the new Vtech Innotab 3 tablets for kids
- Swivel Camera! This means the kids can take pictures and videos not only by holding the Innotab 3 like a camera, but also of themselves! My kids love this!
- Sturdy and compact design. This takes up very little space, and is super easy to travel with and fits in the kid’s hands very easily!

My daughter really liked the VTech InnoTab, she enjoyed exploring the games available on the Learning Lodge to download. We connected the unit to the computer and downloaded some of her top choices. There are over 350 education games, e-books, music, videos all specifically designed for your children’s age. You can also use cartridges which are great if your child enjoys trading games with friends. I love that you can store the stylus pen inside the tablet itself. No more lost stylus pens. That is brilliant! Plus, it comes with an extra pen just in case you do lose the first one.
All the most important buttons are super easy to access on the front of the Vtech Innotab 3. It has volume control, “help” button, home button, power button, and an easy D pad for playing the games. Plus the speaker is in the front which makes audio much more clear.
Navigation on the Vtech Innotab 3 is really easy too. My daughter never came back to me asking for help on how to start a game or navigate anything. I like the color display, the cute graphics and we love the camera. It is very age appropriate for my daughter. Take a look at her face in the photo below. She LOVES the InnoTab 3!
To purchase: The InnoTab® 3 sells for $69.99 and comes in two colors: Pink and the regular blue, orange and white. There are many accessories for it including headphones, skins and cartridges. Also, please follow V-Tech Toys on Twitter and Facebook for the latest info!
