InnoTab 2 Baby By VTech Review

Vtech InnoTab 2 Baby Learning Tablet 12+ Months w 19 Apps, Camera, Gel Skin NEWAt the BigToyBook’s recent BabyPalooza blogger/media event held at Delta Children’s NYC headquarters I was introduced  to VTech’s InnoTab 2 Baby Tablet. The InnoTab 2 Baby is designed with a growing child in mind, which I love. Starting at 12 months up to age 9, this is the tablet that will grow along with your child. The tablet comes with a soft, removable gel bumper that helps protect the InnoTab 2 Baby from tumbles. I also like the bumper because it protects the cartridge from prying little hands that want to remove it. What little ones can’t  see, they won’t touch. The InnoTab 2 Baby includes content specifically for infants, including a Baby Sign Language program from Baby Signs, Inc. the world’s leader in sign language for hearing babies. The InnoTab 2 Baby has four activities for infants and  toddlers including a Noah’s Ark e-book, 12 sing-along nursery rhyme songs, and a drawing and coloring activity that will engage your child . InnoTab 2 Baby also includes a rotating camera, a video recorder, MP3 music player, e-book reader, video player, art studio and other fun apps for children to play with as they grow, With VTech’s extensive software cartridge library and compatibility with all InnoTab content on VTech’s Learning Lodge this is the only tablet  your child will need.

My 4-year-old just loves this tablet. He would not put it down. He likes the Color & Pop which is a virtual coloring book and the Motion Games. He also is having a blast taking pictures from the Rotating Camera and really enjoys using the Styluses (it comes with 2) and putting it back in its holder on the back of the InnoTab 2 Baby. Set-up is super easy, I had the InnoTab 2 Baby up and running as soon as the batteries were installed. Requires 4 AA batteries which are not included.

I just love toys that engage a child’s inmagation and VTech never disappoints.

The InnoTab 2 Baby Retails for $89.00
