InnoTab 3S: Premium Kid Connect Review and InnoTab 3S Giveaway

Awhile back, I posted my awesome review of the InnoTab 3S! We love ours! I wanted to share with you an awesome App/Feature that the InnoTab 3S has! VTech Kid Connect is an app that lets you chat in real time with your child. VTech Kid Connect is a unique, ground-breaking family communication app for the InnoTab 3S that brings families together and helps parents stay connected to their kids when apart – anytime, anywhere! The Premium Kid Connect app, available only on the InnoTab 3S, allows preschoolers as young as three to send voice messages to parents’ smartphones, from a kid-safe, kid-friendly tablet. You can use your smartphone and download the app from Google Play or the Apple Store. Now that I have an Android phone, I downloaded it and was able to sign in to my childs Learning Lodge.  I connected the InnoTab to the computer and was able to get into the Learning Lodge that I already had downloaded. You transfer your as and disconnect the cord from your laptop. Pretty easy, I must say! There is a free version available but the Premium Kid Connect is available for $14.99!
After you set up your profiles, anyone can download the app, and upon parent approval family members can connect with your child. With easy-to-use tablet-to-mobile communication, preschoolers as young as three can send voice messages to parents’ smartphones, from a kid-safe, kid-friendly tablet in real time. With secure and easy-to-use tablet-to-mobile communication, parents and children can exchange voice and text messages, pictures, drawings and stickers in real time!
Now, I did upgrade and play with the premium, but what you see pictured above is the free version. I had a blonde moment and took pictures before. The only difference is that all of the icons will be yellow and other features such as voice messaging,  and picture messaging. I really love how kids can send text messages, animated stickers, photos and drawings to their contacts! Overall, we love Premium Kid Connect and we plan to use it often! Being able to have that different type of communication is a plus for me!  Check out this video to learn more as well!

Note: The Kid Connect service is free for one year from the date of registration of your InnoTab® 3S. Purchasing the Premium app will not extend the service period beyond the original terms. What do you say? Will you be trying the Premium Kid Connect App with your child? 
Guess what? As a special for the holiday season, the price on the InnoTab 3S has dropped from $99.99 to $79.99. Now as a way to celebrate, VTech is letting a reader win a InnoTab 3S AGAIN on my blog! Winner will win a blue and white InnoTab 3S like pitcured above. This is a FLASH giveaway that is open until 11/18 at 11:59PM CST. PLEASE NOTE: Comments that do not relate to the mandatory entry will automatically disqualify you. This makes these giveaways fair to all of the readers.

  6. I personally would not use this app. We don't have smart phones to send pictures with. I want to upgrade my son from the original Innotab to this new one. The Connect app just doesn't seem like something we would ever use.

  36. I love the camera option and the 180 degree rotation of the camera. My daughters LOVE taking pictures and videos of themselves. They dance and pose and even do their own selfies and take their own jumpshots. LOL. To think they're only 2 and 5, they also do videos of them singing. Yes my 2 1/2 year old daughter can sing the Wrecking Ball already (I didn't let her watch the video though she just heard the song from the radio and instantly said that's her favorite song.) :) I also like the rechargeable battery pack and the long battery life. :)
