Vtech Innotab 2S-Great Gift for Kids and Toddlers

Updated on September 7, 2014

The Vtech Innotab 2S learning tablet is the hottest toy for kids and toddlers in 2014

The Vtech Innotab 2S is the newest and hottest toy available for kids and toddlers in 2014. If your kids can't keep their hands off your iPad or tablet then this is the present for you. The Vtech Innotab and Innotab 2 have been loved by kids for awhile however this newest version (2S) has the capability to connect via Wi-Fi to download games and apps. What makes this such a great gift idea for kids is it can be a great learning too. Education gifts are always a great idea. Though it's so much more and so much fun. It's a game device, e-reader, camera, video camera, music player and more all in one convenient, portable hand-held device. It's built to be kid friendly with soft plastic on the sides that's easy to hold and makes it hard to damage. The recommended age range is 3-9 years though kids slightly younger or older can still benefit and enjoy. It's a great toy to be shared among siblings.

Top 5 Reasons to pick Vtech Innotab 2S over the LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer

There are several kid's learning/playing tablets available on the market today with the two leading choices being the Vtech Innotab and the LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer. They're both great devices and offer different positives. However the key reasons to pick the Vtech Innotab 2S include:

  1. The Innotab allows you to put your movies on it via the SD card whereas the LeapPad will only play movies downloaded from the Leap Frog Connect. These include a very limited selection that does not include any mainstream kid's television programs or movies.
  2. The LeapPad does not have the option to download music or import songs and the Innotab does.
  3. The Innotab is a little sturdier and has a leg on the back so it can stand up.
  4. The Innotab responds to motion and even blowing while playing certain games which adds an additional element of fun.
  5. The Innotab has expandable memory and Wi-Fi connectivity and the LeapPad does not.

V Tech AC Adaptor

The Vtech Innotab 2s takes four AA batteries. This device runs through battery power relatively quickly so having a charger to save money on batteries is a must. What's great is this charger works with all compatible Vtech toys so it could be useful for more than just the Innotab 2s.

VTech Headphones for Innotab and other devices

These headphones are an awesome add on gift for any child that has a Vtech Innotab 2s. These headphones offer a really high quality sound however they have a volume limiter so you don't have to worry about the the sound being up too high and damaging your child's hearing. They'll help you and others when your child uses them in public because the sounds and songs won't be heard by others. They're comfortable and made for kids. They can be used with other compatible Vtech toys as well and not just the Innotab 2s.

These headphones are extra fun because they are customizable. They include stencils that allow kids to create their own personalized faceplate designs.

Vtech Innotab Games

If your child already has games from a previous version of the Vtech Innotab those will work on this newer model. Though you can download games and apps these game cartridges have really fun games and make a great add on Christmas present. They make a great Christmas gift idea you can tell others to buy for your child to give them more to do with their new toy. Another benefit of buying a cartridge is if you have multiple kids with their own Innotab then they can all share and use the same cartridges without having to buy them each a separate game as you would with downloads.

VTech Learning Application Download Gift Card

There are so many great apps for your child to choose from and they'll surely want to download some games when they receive their present. A great gift to accompany the Vtech Innotab 2S is a gift card for the Vtech application learning store which features hundreds of applications to choose from. These can be used on the InnoTab, MobiGo, or V. Reader system.

      The interactive games are great, but I think my little ones would really enjoy the ability to load their favorite songs on it. They love to dance.
