InnoTab MAX Gives Kids an Edge in Learning as They Head Back to School
Chicago – As kids head back to school and the focus naturally shifts from summer fun to education, parents are looking for ways to help their children succeed and give them a learning advantage. VTech, a pioneer in children's learning tablets, offers a powerful and versatile 7" tablet that can supplement children's learning – its award-winning InnoTab® MAX. Built to grow with a child for years of learning fun, InnoTab MAX uniquely combines VTech's expert-supported library of cartridges, software and apps with carefully selected educational Android™ apps, offering the best of both learning worlds and the widest variety of curricula to provide a superior children's tablet.
"InnoTab MAX exceeds the expectations parents have when selecting a learning tablet for their child," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Our research shows that parents look for a tablet that is durable and can meet their child's needs for several years, as well as offer a variety of educational software and apps at the best value, and InnoTab MAX delivers all these features and more."
Because VTech knows parents also value educational content to complement classroom learning, consumers will receive a free educational bundle containing 8 apps, along with one free Toca Boca app, after they register their tablet on the Learning Lodge® app store. Parents can choose a bundle that focuses on a single subject area such as Language Arts or choose a bundle that covers a variety of skills appropriate for their child's grade level. Consumers also have access to more than 850 educator-supported VTech and Android apps, including hand-picked Android learning games and age-appropriate learning software and content through the Learning Lodge. The apps, featuring a well-rounded curriculum of language arts and reading, math, science, social studies, problem solving and creativity, have been reviewed by VTech's Expert Panel, made up of top educators from key knowledge areas, so parents know their child is getting learning content that is kid-friendly and educator-approved.
"The tablet has proved to be a welcome way for kids to interact with digital media," said Dr. Eric Klopfer, VTech Expert Panel member and Platform Learning Expert. "Touch interfaces and well-crafted content have meant an easy on ramp for many children who enjoy and learn through this technology. The InnoTab MAX learning tablet continues to provide an age-appropriate experience for younger kids wanting their very own tablet. As the library of carefully chosen Android apps steadily increases, so does the learning and playing opportunities for kids using this system."
In addition to content on the Learning Lodge, VTech has a rich library of educational cartridges, giving parents even more ways to make InnoTab MAX new and exciting for kids, and extend play for years of learning fun. With the cartridges, kids can explore engaging content through age-appropriate games, e-Books and more, allowing children to progressively learn key subjects such as math, reading and science with the help of popular familiar characters. Select new titles this year include Frozen®, Miles from Tomorrowland®, Paw Patrol® and Dora & Friends®.
