As a parent, I have been a long time fan of VTech products for my children. I have found that not only are they easy to set up and play with for both parents and children alike, they are durable and kid-safe. In July at Sweet Suite, I had the chance to preview the new VTech® InnoTab® MAX learning tablet and I was really excited about it.
Last Christmas, Santa brought my daughter (then almost 3) the InnoTab and my son (5 at the time) a comparable competitor’s product. I found that both of my children loved the InnoTab so much, I had returned the competitor’s product because it was difficult to use. It says something of a product when it is able to hold the attention of a 3 and 5 year old with different needs and expectations.
Right out of the box, I was so happy to see that the VTech® InnoTab® MAX learning tablet comes with a power cord to charge your tablet now. In the past, the power cord was sold separately or the InnoTab took 6 batteries. When you are investing in a product, any additional expenses can become costly, so this was a welcomed surprise for me. It takes a little over an hour to full charge and I found the charge held for almost 15 hours of play!
Some additional specs about VTech®’s 4th generation kids’ learning tablet the InnoTab MAX (Ages 3-9 years, MSRP: $109.99):
- Features VTechs’ fastest processor with 6 times more than past InnoTab Tablets.

- The tablet comes with 15 apps including My Magic Beanstalk (a favorite of my children), Movie Maker, Art Studio, Wonder Cam Max, E-Reader, Story dictionary and the new Toca Boca app.
- If you have used VTech products in the past, you are familiar with their Learning Lodge® app store, the InnoTab Max allows your child to access to over 650 age and stage appropriate apps that have been selected by educators. Your VTEch InnoTab purchase also comes with 2 free app downloads.
- I’ve always found VTech’s products to really nurture a parent & child’s relationship and the InnoTab Max is no different. The parental controls allow you to manage your child’s apps, webs access, tablet time and view a progress log.
- One of the reasons I was excited about this new generation VTech InnoTab was that it came with kid-safe Wi-Fi. We constantly struggle at home keeping our internet kid-safe, so now on their InnoTab, my children can explore appropriate online games, videos and websites that VTech has preselected.
- Sync up to 4 children’s accounts on 1 tablet.

My two children (ages 3 & 6) will be sharing the VTech® InnoTab® MAX learning tablet. The 1st generation InnoTab is still being used daily in my home and they were very excited to have a new and improved model. With the Learning Lodge, I love that I don’t have to worry about keeping track of game cartridges. Purchasing games is locked by a pass code and the prices are as much as a third less than cartridges for comparable systems. Technology today is a great part of our children’s learning process and I am glad to see that VTech is taking advantage of that with a safe, fun and affordable option!
