A Real HD Video Game System For Kids Ages 3-8 – Vtech InnoTV

Video gaming is in my family’s DNA. I have been playing video games since the early 1980’s and my daughters love to play video games as well. Finding a great system for my young daughters has not been the easiest to do. I will say that not all games and video game systems are created equal and many games offer really nothing but wasted time. We are happy to partner with VTech on this post,, they are a company we have long used in our home and trust for their educational gaming systems. VTECH InnoTV controller and consoleThe new VTech InnoTV is just what my 2 youngest daughters have been needing and waiting for. Their older sister who is 10 has all her video game systems but the games are just too intensive for young children ages 2-8. While Brooklin is learning to read, many games designed for older kid consoles do not take the reading part into account and the games become too difficult to continue.

Any gamer knows what happens when a game is too difficult, it means sometimes it might be time to move on for now. While the younger children want to play games and solve problems and be challenged, its best for them to play games designed for their age.VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 (6)The VTech InnoTV is really a neat kids gaming console. Finally, now there is a console that moves as smooth as more advanced consoles and offers high definition graphics. No lag or delays, both my 3 and 6 year olds can play their game and navigate in between menus, games, options and more.

Depending on what age category is selected, difficulty is on par with what my kids are learning. Brooklin loves to be asked math questions and this fun math game lets her be challenged while also playing a well-designed and fluid game.

VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 (8)What I love about playing well crafted games and systems versus apps for phones or tablets, is that console gaming is designed with a challenge and purpose. From solving puzzles, or doing math, to working on hand and eye coordination while trekking through the jungle, console gaming is designed with the gamer in mind.

VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 (7)VTECH did an awesome job with the new VTech InnoTV and is changing the electronic learning product category. Finally, my little ones can play a real game, and not just kind of work their way around a game that eventually they realize is completely boring and teached nothing.

VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 (1)Kids can play as they wish and progress as they feel comfortable with. Many games align with Common Core curriculum standards such as recognizing and spelling out sight words like in the Island Challenge game found in the Play and Learn Starter Pack bundle. Brooklin is so excited she has asked to play in the mornings even before school. Lucky for me she is super excited to play after school and what’s even better for me is knowing she is learning math, reading, the alphabet all while just having a blast!

VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 (2)What I think I really like about the InnoTV is that it is of course for my 6-year-old, but also tailored for our 3-year-old. She is in a pre-preschool style of daycare and loves numbers, letters, art, and of course playing a game like her big sisters!

VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 InnoTV is for single ­players as well as having a multi-player option helping to develop skills in co­playing, sharing, cooperation and of course TAKING TURNS!

The simple and kid ­friendly controller was designed of course with small hands in mind, and also is easy to adjust for both right­ and left ­handed players by simple rotating it and flipping a switch on the back. The great thing about letting kids play with controllers and joysticks is it develops fine motor skills and helps to really focus on precision and control.

VTECH InnoTV Gaming System for Kids 3-8 (5)“The family gaming console has found a welcome place in many family rooms for good reason. The console connected to the TV provides an interactive focal point for family gaming. Even when children are playing games targeted solely at them, the rest of the family has the opportunity to observe, question, suggest, and laugh with the child behind the controls. InnoTV brings that experience to younger children, with age appropriate and educational content. It also notably does so by providing ways of accessing existing content from other VTech products to make that initial jump even easier.” Games are Good ​By Dr. Eric Klopfer, VTech Expert Panel member and Platform LearningExpert

We can also play along from our smartphones and tablet and can personalize their profiles and customize the learning content in select games.

InnoTV also comes with built-­in Wi-Fi. It is easy to stream and download additional games and tons of extra educational content from the VTECH Learning Lodge. In addition to cartridges, there will be 100 titles rolling out by the end of the year. Select InnoTab library cartridges are also for use with the InnoTV, creating even more gaming fun.

  • InnoTV console with built-in Wi-Fi
  • Wireless controller with smart wheel and wrist strap
  • 4 included learning games, plus free trials of additional games

    My son has autism and this is how he learns. He learns through tech learning products. We have a leapster and he loves it. I know he would have fun and learn with this.

    My 3 grandsons love to play their tablets, but still the littlest one just turned 4 and most games are to hard for him. I believe this would be perfect for him.
