Lincoln recently had the opportunity to review the brand new VTech InnoTab MAX learning tablet for kids. It was such a huge hit with him, as I knew it would be. We have had it for a couple of weeks now, and throughout that time, he has downloaded a few apps; his favorite being the included Toca Boca app. We're headed back to Disney mid-December, and the InnoTab will absolutely be joining us for the 3 hour plane ride. Of course now that he has this fun new tablet, he wants more game cartridges!! And, I can't say as I blame him!! VTech's learning cartridges are a lot of fun, and something I like even more - they're educational!! It's a known fact that children learn best from play. I love how VTech's learning cartridges are interactive - they really get those wheels turning!
Here's some information about their cartridges:
-- Parents can extend the play value of their VTech toys by purchasing new Learning Cartridges for InnoTab Learning Tablets.
-- A range of educational cartridges are available, offering age-appropriate games, e-Books, and more that allow children to progressively learn key subjects, such as math, reading, and science in steady stages.
-- Interactive e-Books teach reading and vocabulary, while creative activities and camera fun inspire children's imaginations.
-- The cartridges are compatible with all current InnoTab models, and will also work with new models that will be released later this year, including the InnoTab MAX (www.vtechkids.com/itmax), its fastest Wi-Fi tablet yet, and itsfirst to feature Android learning content.

Lincoln is in his final year of preschool. This year, they're really prepping him for Kindergarten. He's practicing number and letter recognition, and handwriting skills. I really love that this game helps him with identifying his letters, and he can even practice writing. It's a great fine motor activity! The game also offers him "rewards" when he does a job well done. I love the positive reinforcement it embraces - and kids truly thrive on it! It really encourages Lincoln to play (work) hard.

This was hands down Lincoln's favorite game! He seriously LOVED it. I think the fact that this game has fun vehicles to play with, really gets him even more engaged. His little brother also recently received one of the Go! Go! Smart Wheels play sets for his birthday, and Lincoln has really enjoyed playing it with him. This game in a way is a spin-off of those very same play sets!! Like the previous game, I love that this one also reinforces what he's currently learning in school. Practice makes perfect! I love how it's so incredibly interactive, and that he is able to have fun while learning.
Lincoln's favorite game in this cartridge is Catch the Letter Thief. It features Paul the Police Car. Lincoln says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up, just like his daddy. He loves being able to drive around the town, picking up clues.
I think the best part about these games, is Lincoln doesn't even realize he's learning. He's just happy and having fun. That's what learning should be - FUN!!
