VTech Premium Kid Connect lets you connect with your kids anywhere {InnoTab 3S}

Sponsored post basic disclosure
My kids love to text and call their dad throughout the day while he’s at work, but I hate to leave them unattended with my cell phone. This means I’m constantly guarding my phone and making sure it’s locked down, and the kids try their best to convince me to take their pictures and send it to daddy all day long.  

The solution? The awesome Premium Kid Connect available on the VTech InnoTab 3S that helps parents stay connected to their kids when apart. You may remember how much I adore the InnoTab learning tablet for kids and how it saved our Chicago-to-Seattle train trip, got us ready for school, and now offers supplemental learning we can do at home, but it’s way more than that when you connect it to VTech Premium Kid Connect and any Wi-Fi connection.

With the Premium Kid Connect on the InnoTab 3S, your kids can send voice, text, and picture messages right to loved ones' phones in real time. All by themselves.

And, even better than that is that we parents {and grandparents} can send messages back to the InnoTab 3S from an iOS or Android device by downloading the VTech app. This means daddy can respond to whatever goofy voice message, drawing or sticker the kids just sent and they don't have to wait until he's home to see if he liked whatever picture they sent.

Sending messages to the kids
They are having so much fun messaging each other and their daddy, and I love seeing their comment threads at the end of the day. Between my daughter newfound sounding out words to my son's sweet little voice recordings, these messages are capturing moments of time I wouldn't otherwise be able to share with my husband.

Another feature I'm really excited about is that they can talk with friends and cousins who have an InnoTab 3S and who have been given their account ID information through Kid Connect. Even though we only have one Vtech InnoTab 3S at our house, since both kids have profiles on the tablet, they can actually still send messages to each other, which I love.

If you're thinking, man, that sounds like a real tablet, you'd be right. While the InnoTab is still ruggedized for kids and can't access anything {or anyone} you haven't approved, it really is the closest thing to a networking device as possible. This makes the tablet feel more like a kid-friendly and age-appropriate smartphone for kids than a toy, which means that they will be playing with it for years and years.

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to play around with the Premium Kid Connect even more and explore with the kiddos all that it can do. While I do feel a teeny bit sorry for my husband who is bound to get a million messages each day full of phonetically spelled words and scribbles, I also know that it’s going to be a huge bonding experience for my kids growing up to be able to feel like daddy is close to them at all times.

The Premium Kid Connect app is available only on the InnoTab 3S, but you’re in luck because VTech has announced a holiday price drop on the InnoTab 3S from $99 to $79 that makes this awesome tablet even more affordable.
