My children love technology. They are always playing games on the computer, or watching videos on my iPad. I have been asked to do a review on the InnoTab MAX and I think it is a wonderful tablet for children!

The Learning Lodge is filled with apps, videos & music to download. I love the amount of apps that there are for my children to enjoy, and that they aren’t crazy expensive. If you also want to buy cartridges they make lots to choose from. The Learning Lodge is also very easy for parent and child to navigate. This also comes with VTech Kid Connect, which is the InnoTab version of a texting app. It essentially lets kids send messages and cute pictures to friends and family via the Kid Connect app for iOS or Android. I have the iPhone so I put the app on and my daughter and I can send text messages and cute pictures to each other!

You can also set a timer for how long they are on the internet for, and what sites they are allowed to go on. To me this is a great and safe function for young children.

The only issue that we didn’t care for, the back of the tablet seems to get very warm if my children play it for more than an hour. It only bothers them if they have the back part flat on their legs, or have their hand on the back of it. Also, make sure to do a Firmware update after you download your apps, I didn’t know to do this and my downloaded apps wouldn’t open at all until I did the update. Once I updated all was good! I also love that this comes with a wall charger. Once my kids are done playing it, I just plug it in to charge the battery.

This would be a great gift to give your child for the holidays! You can find this on Amazon for $89.99 right now. You can also add cool accessories to it such as headphones and a carry case. VtechKids also has this on sale for $84.99. This comes in color blue or pink.
