4.0 out of 5 stars Good competition for the Leap Pad, October 27, 2012
This review is from: VTech InnoTab 2 Kids Tablet, Blue (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My daughter has the Leap Pad2 and my son now has the InnoTab, so it was nice to compare them side by side.
Pros for the InnoTab: I love the camera design. The Leap Pad2 has two cameras, one in the front and one in the back. InnoTab's design has a rotating camera, so you can switch it from front to back. My son says this adds extra coolness, which I must say I agree, it was a nice touch. This also has a neat photo editing lab where the kids can add in stamps, borders and change colors. I'd say this is a tie for Leap Pad/InnoTab. Sound quality is good. I like the rubber bumpers on the InnoTab. Both products say they are for ages 3-9, but I think the InnoTab is actually geared towards the younger crowd. That being said, if my son happens to drop the InnoTab, I feel like it has more protection with the bumper. I also like the wide variety of games and stories you can get on the InnoTab. We've had Leapster products for so long, and it seems like they are just releasing the same game in a different format (Leap Pad, Leapster, etc.) With the InnoTab, it's a whole new set of things to choose from, including some choices Leap Frog does not have, like Hello Kitty.
Cons: The screen size is the same, but I think the clarity is better on the Leap Pad2. Also, as another reviewer has mentioned, there's a longer lag in loading on this product as compared to the Leap Pad2. It's not as noticeable to my younger child, but my six year old gets frustrated at times waiting for each game section to load. I also think the screen is more responsive in the Leap Pad2 - some games require some precision in tapping just the right spot for an answer, and we've had times with the InnoTab where my son will press the correct spot on the screen, but nothing will happen unless he repeatedly presses or moves a fraction over to the left of the correct answer.
Overall, InnoTab is a solid learning device, and I think it would be a fantastic first "tablet" for younger kids. If you have a child at the older end of the recommended range, you might want to consider the Leap Pad2.
