Scout the gorgeous green puppy was the 'apple of my 3 year old granddaughters eye'. We initially listened to the story books with both my granddaughter aged 3, and my grandson aged 6. Their first reaction was wonderment, how could...
GRANNYNET GOLD: InnoTab2
Exciting, challenging apps
It is a bit complicated to download software from the website and a bit heavy on batteries
This has a good chunky feel with protected corners integrated into the design. It is easy to use with clear instructions, though there is a slight wait while apps download. The screen is sensitive to touch, but has stylus too. The children are logged in and their efforts recorded. The camera/video recorder is located in the hand grip, not in the best place, though it does rotate for front and back photos/filming. There are 15 apps included and more are available to down load and purchase. There is Art studio, an E-reader, learning games and an MP3 player. The InnoTab2 has a slightly older starting age/ability, 4 years onwards and much more can be downloaded including kids TV shows so it is better value.
Good size with buttons easy to reach for small hands
Not suitable for a wide age range
Another product with a good chunky feel, durable for light knocks with a protective gel skin available. This has a simple menu for youngest child to understand, a clear voice and clear instructions, and loads quickly. The touch screen works best with attached stylus. There are nine levels and progress can be logged for 3 children and one guest. There are 5 apps included; music , games, reading etc. Other apps are available, but can be expensive. A built in camera takes front and rear facing photos. At full price not one to be chucked in the toy box, but goes from Hand to Eye Coordination onwards. It's ok if they haven’t already played with adult technology. It is more suited to the younger age group, older children might think it too babyish and want something more realistic. Battery life good.
