Top Christmas toys 2011
The new vtech innotab is Vtech's big educational toy for Christmas 2011 and it's already being called the childrens ipad!
So parents you can now stop all those fights and tantrums as your youngest tries to get his hands on your ipad as he will have his very own portable tablet.
So what is the Vtech Innotab?
Well the Vtech Innotab is a cutting-edge, multi-function children's educational tablet that is designed for children betwwen the ages of 4 to 9 years old.
This tablet really is a kids version of the ipad, the Innotab comes with a touch screen that rotates when you rotate the tablet, the layout is very simular with the apps on screen and you can of course download more apps. With the Innotab you get apps like e-reader, games, calendar and photos which is really cool!
So you can load all your photos onto the tablet and view them in either landscape or potrait, you can also run a slideshow which will just scroll through all the photos that you have in your folder.
Another great feature on the Vtech Innotab that even the ipad doesn't have is a little stand that can be pulled from the back so that you can stand the Innotab upright, so it can also act as a digital photo frame which is really cool.
The design of the Innotab is fantastic and Vtech have done a really great job with this tablet, with small features like having a Home button just off the side of the screen, there is also an orientation lock which stops the screen from rotating which is really handy for young children who will be turning and twisting this device.
It's not just apps that the Innotab is campatible with, it also has a cartridge slot in the back which will allow more content. Which is great as this educational device will never get stale and can grow with your child!
The actual build quality is really good and there is enough hard and soft plastic around the screen to protect it from any dropping or hard play...this item will be able to take a few knocks which is important as we don't want this expensive tablet breaking after some rough play by a four year old.
The Vtech InnoTab will be available in both a Blue and Pink variation.
The Innotab is also know as the Innopad in the US and some other markets around the world.
The new Vtech InnoTab is a multi-media educational tablet for children 4-9 years old that combines interactive and animated reading, learning games, creative activities and a rich collection of applications.
