The InnoTab 3S, the next generation of one of the first children's learning tablets with Wi-Fi1, features VTech Kid Connect2 - an exclusive communication app that allows kids to be connected with their parents and friends through both tablet-to-mobile3 and tablet-to-tablet communication -, a rechargeable battery pack with AC adapter and a kid-safe web browser. In addition, access to VTech's Learning Lodge app store - home to a plethora of downloadable content and curriculum for purchase - plus 20 free apps4, provides kids with a bright start on their learning journey.

For more than 30 years, VTech has been a leading learning authority, helping to establish the educational toy category with innovative products at an affordable price. Beginning today, InnoTab 3S is available for pre-order on www.toysrus.ca, www.amazon.ca and www.vtechcanada.com for only $109.99, making the InnoTab 3S the smart choice for parents who are looking for the right learning tablet for their children at a competitive price.

"As pioneers in the learning tablet category, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve and developing revolutionary, innovative, educational toys. As our second tablet to feature Wi-Fi, the InnoTab 3S is a shining example of the ingenuity that keeps us one step ahead of the competition while at the same time fulfilling our promise to make learning fun and technology affordable."

Connectivity Changes the Game

Following the success of the popular InnoTab 2S, VTech is continuing to set the industry standard with this second-generation Wi-Fi-enabled tablet, which brings families together and helps parents stay connected to their kids, even when they are apart, with the fun, new, exclusive VTech communication app, VTech Kid Connect. Kids can use their InnoTab 3S to send text messages and animated stickers to their parents' smartphones. In return, parents can send text messages and stickers to their child's InnoTab 3S. VTech Kid Connect gives kids the ability to emulate their parents, allowing them to feel like they are part of the text messaging trend but from a kid-safe, kid-friendly tablet. In addition, kids can stay connected to their friends and siblings with tablet-to-tablet communication, sending messages safely between two InnoTab 3S tablets from the next room or from across the country.

A value-packed Deluxe Apps Package with Premium Kid Connect will be available in the fall (sold separately), including even more enhanced features, allowing kids and parents to send each other personalized voice messages, photos, and drawings, in addition to texts and animated stickers.

Kid-Safe Browsing

With the kid-safe web browser, parents can have peace of mind that their children aren't accessing inappropriate content while letting them securely explore the sites they love in a kid-friendly, easy-to-navigate format. The web browser allows access to age-appropriate websites vetted by VTech's educational experts. Parents also have the ability to add additional websites, giving them complete control over what sites their child can access. This parental control feature is password protected to ensure kids can't add websites without their parents' permission.

Packed with Content, Value and Creativity

In addition to the VTech Kid Connect communication app and kid-safe web browser, the InnoTab 3S features 4 GB of internal memory (expandable to 32 GB with a micro SD card, sold separately), a D-Pad game control and updated creative camera features. For even more value, a rechargeable battery pack with AC adapter comes bundled with the InnoTab 3S, eliminating the need to buy expensive replacement batteries - just plug in the AC adapter for easy charging. InnoTab 3S also offers all the features consumers have come to love in the durable InnoTab 2S - a kid-safe Wi-Fi connection, a 2-megapixel, 180-degree rotating camera and a large 5-inch colour touch screen, as well as the Read, Play & Create cartridge and included apps such as the MP3 player and photo album. In addition, InnoTab 3S features a Wish List Maker, allowing children to wirelessly explore content on VTech's download library, the Learning Lodge, where they can pick their favourites, create a wish list and send the list right to their parents' email5. Parents can then approve items on the wish list, which wirelessly sends the purchases directly to the child's InnoTab 3S.
