The doctor’s office. Parent Teacher Conferences. Long car rides. During dinner preparations. The motion is swift and automatic – you hand your phone over to your child. opening up the folder containing all the educational apps.
“Here, play one of these. Just for a bit.”
Then, a little while later…
The phone buzzes.
“Hey, I need it back real quick, can you pause your game? Sorry! It might be important.”
These meetings and conferences and car rides happen, with your phone in your hand. Your child, contentedly plays on a tablet made just for him. Full of educational games. No access to internet (yikes!). You know what is on it. And did I mention educational?
I am so glad VTech sent me an Innotab 3 Plus to review, as well as information about it. It is amazing – and, I have my phone back!
Forget trying to find educational apps for your phone, only to hope they are somewhat educational and totally entertaining (so your child doesn’t go back to Angry Birds. Again.) How about a tablet with a variety of games that are fun, a screen comparable to an iPhone 5, and a camera to play with.
Oh and the VTech Innotab 3 Plus has a rechargeable battery! It comes with a micro USB cord – no more having to buy a caseload of batteries, this one plugs right into the wall like all the other electronics in your life.
And all the educational apps! They are constantly creating new ones and with VTech behind it, you know they will be fun and exciting and teaching your children new subjects and concepts. Just like that quote above, while your children are having fun, they will remember what they are learning!
You can hand your child this tablet and take back your phone! It is priced super affordably – only $63.50 on Amazon.com! That is less than any other major brand tablet!
- InnoTab 3 Plus is a value-packed tablet that features a rechargeable battery power pack so you don’t need to worry about constantly purchasing batteries, a cost that really adds up.
- This tablet offers access to more than 800 educator-endorsed, age and stage appropriate cartridges, software and apps that can be purchased and downloaded from VTech’s Learning Lodge app store.
- Children will also love taking photos using the 180° rotating camera with over 55 special effects and using the video recorder to make movies. They can even import and listen to their own MP3s with the music player.
- InnoTab 3 Plus comes with 12 apps to open up a world of learning fun at an affordable price of only $59.99, making it a great first learning tablet for price conscious parents.
CLOSED! CONGRATS SHELLY! ENJOY YOUR VTECH INNOTAB!
One Mama Dweeb reader will win a VTech Innotab 3 Plus – just like the one Lucy played with above!

We limit electronic and television time greatly and I try hard to have other things to hand my little guy when we are out and about (not always possible and sometimes yes he just wants “his games”) but I also know that with a techy daddy and living in a highly techy world my little one will become proficient far too soon in electronic devices and this is a great way to ensure what we expose him is both educational, safe and fun!
kathy pennell says
I think the four year old gdaughter I have would use it during the day, she is always on her mom’s tablet or like today at the doctor and running errands on mom’s phone. Mom is on call a lot when not working nights as an RN so needs her phone for work and not my little pony or peppa or mine craft.
This would be amazing for my daughter, she’s been very intrigued by her Mimi’s tablet so it’d be a great gift for her. Thanks for the consideration.
Christina Spoula says
i think my 9 year old would enjoy playing on its camera feature. But eventually it will save me when my 13 month old gets to the point where he wants my electronics!
Lisa B says
My grandchildren love my iPad so this would be a good alternative rather than sharing. I like the rechargeable feature.
Carissa Bollhoefner says
We have a Leap pad right now and I feel like it’s limited in what it can do. This would be something exciting for my 4yr. old daughter to explore and allow my husband to have his Ipad back! 😉
Cassandra Eastman says
I love that it has a rechargeable battery and learning apps! My 3 and 5 year old would both play on the innotab, they’d love it!!
T Michelle Trump says
I would love to win this for my niece, she would love it! I love the wifi feature!
We were just talking about what to get Little bean for Christmas this year……but now we are going to check these out!
Thank You for your reviews you do, it helps all of us out!
Rebecca Orr says
This is such a neat product. My daughter is the perfect age for it. As a mom looking for ways to cut back on battery costs, the rechargeable battery pack is a huge money saver. The camera function on anything is always a hit with my kids….who are very vain apparently and think that taking pictures of themselves is the best thing in the world! Lol Also, I am in love with products like this that come preloaded with apps and also have apps for purchase. With my kids, I like them to get tired of the preloaded stuff before I start buying other stuff to add on. That way, I am not spending a bunch of money right from the get go on apps. I can add them slowly as the other apps become irrelevant for them.
The kids love my iPad mini….but so do I! And it is mine! They need their own devices so I can claim the iPad as solely mine again. I am all for sharing….but grrrr!! They also need something that isn’t just mindless games like moms iPad has. They need something that is fun but is also educational and they learn from…even if they don’t realize it….which they wouldn’t.
Thanks for the chance to win one Annie! Your daughter seems to be enjoying her time with her tablet!
Kelsey S says
This looks like a neat, fun and educational electronic. My little guy is not quite old enough for this but he would grow into it soon!
I would love to win as we have an older style and the batteries are bankrupting me. I love that this one has a rechargeable battery.
Great for doctors visits! I’d so keep this in a travel bag for when we have appointments or long car rides.
Id love to win this so the kids don’t mess up my tablet! Buying them their own just isn’t in our budget.
Elise Gardner says
My 3 yr old would be ecstatic to have this, she gets so upset when her sister is playing on her tablet, she does get a chance to play too, but there would be less arguing. I love that it has a camera, she loves taking pictures. Rechargable batteries are a huge plus!! Batteries are so expensive.
My son will enjoy this tablet.
Katie S. says
My daughter would love playing on this tablet! Thank you for sharing!
I’d love to give it to my son. He is always trying to steal my kindle but he isn’t quite ready for it
This would be a perfect Christmas gift, something I would love to donate to the FHCS auction!
Would love this for a Christmas Gift for my 6 year old. Have been wanting to buy some sort of tablet for him but was unsure which one. He would be thrilled to have something of his own instead of using my phone 🙂

I want to win this for my daughter because she’s so smart and loves to learn!
Amber Krueger says
This is JUST what I need! My 8 year old and 11 year old are constantly asking to use my phone to play their games! The one thing that bugs me the most is when I am trying to do what I want to do on MY phone and it’s interrupted from their games updating all the time. Have pity on me….let me win this please please please! LOL! Thanks for the chance!
Ronald Turner says
For my granddaughter
April Brenay says
I love this kids tablet, this would make an amazing Christmas present for my 4 year old son. He loves to play games and take pictures of family!

Maria Gagliano says
I want this for my daughter. I love that it has Science and handwriting apps. She would love that as a Christmas gift
I would love to win this for my daughter for a Christmas/Birthday present. She is will be 2 in January and is beyond smart at her age. I feel this would be a great learning toy for her as it would be hers and mommy wouldn’t be worried about her breaking it or trying to steal it while I’m not looking. It would help her further her extensive knowledge already in a safe child friendly way that mommy can still keep an eye on. Another reason I would love to win this is because as much as I really want one for my daughter, I honestly cannot afford to go and buy it for her due to be a single mom and there are always other needs than toys so any help whether people nicely giving things or winning is a huge help! And I know I would be blessed to win this for her. Thank you for a great opportunity.

Denise S says
This would be a great Christmas gift for my grandson.
We have one of these, but I would so love another so my twins wouldn’t have to share one anymore! These really are super nice for me, since we homeschool, I can keep my smaller kids entertained while the bigger ones do their schoolwork and the little kids are still learning, too. This would be fabulous to win, thanks for the chance 🙂
Courtney Bre says

shelly johnson says
I love this tablet. Me and my husband have been comparing tablets for our son who is 4 for several months now. I have a kindle fire that he plays on now, but it is not the best for kids. There are not many educational games, and the ads are crazy. Its just not kid friendly AT ALL> But he loves to play it. This is educational, and geared for kids. It is exactly what we are looking for!! shelly Johnson : firstname.lastname@example.org
This would be great for my nephew who is curious and excited to learn every day.
