V-Tech InnoTab

The V-Tech InnoTab offers interactive books, educational games, creativity tools and a library of apps. This durable toy comes in a blue or pink color scheme, measures 9 x 1 x 10 inches (23 x 3 x 25 centimeters), and operates on four AA batteries. A five-inch (12.7-centimeter) touch screen lets kids aged 4 through 9 interact with the device -- just like mom and dad operate their smart phones and grown-up tablets.

The InnoTab features four different media players: an e-book reader, MP3 music player, photo viewer and video player. Each e-book includes a story dictionary to help kids expand their vocabularies and understand new words in context.

The InnoTab syncs to any PC or Mac with a USB cable, so you can download additional games, e-books and apps from V-Tech's online Learning Lodge Navigator, where you can also keep tabs on their child's activities and progress.
