The InnoTab is pre-loaded with educational activities and games and other interactive activities which will keep your child occupied for hours upon end. This toy is capable of all types of activities; kids can watch videos, play games, listen to music, view pictures of their family and friends and download e-books and games besides drawing and writing. In short this toy brings all the fun to their fingertips as the kids touch, drag and flick objects on the five inch color screen. The InnoTab also comes with a stylus as an alternate mode of input for various activities like drawing, tracing and coloring.
The InnoTab features a tilt sensor control for games enabling children to play interactive motion driven games such as pinball and Disney Pixar. The games are of different levels which range from easy to difficult and your child can even download games from the VTech website. The built in 3D coloring app also makes use of the tilt sensor; kids fill in colors in pictures which come to life and move when the child tilts and moves the InnoTab.
The InnoTab helps your child stay organized with the built-in organizer feature which has a calendar, clock, address book and calculator. The interactive globe feature also lets your child explore world maps.
Kids read stories by flipping through the pages and a story dictionary has been added so they can look up the meaning of new words they come across while reading. Your child can either read the meaning of the word or by pressing on the words can also listen to the meaning while learning to pronounce them at the same time. With this feature the InnoTab enriches a childs vocabulary, improves pronunciation and develops reading their reading skills.
