"Kids' tablets were a huge trend for the holidays and demand is even greater this year," said Laurie Schacht, Toy Insider Mom. "Tablets packed with lots of fun and educational content will keep children's minds fresh throughout the summer months and are just the thing to keep kids entertained on long trips."
VTech's InnoTab range offers children their very own tablet that opens up a world of age-appropriate educational content across the widest variety of curriculums, from downloads to software cartridges, combining innovative technology with a developmental learning tool that grows with a child and makes learning fun.
