Our HoneyBaked Ham store- in a rain storm

Every holiday for me is such a rush. We have family out of town, so I’m always going back and forth to stores- in search of the right gift- and the post office- to mail them off to our loved ones! Since we are so far away, we spend more time with our friends who are just as pressed for time, so we rely on HoneyBaked Ham to take the stress of feeding the crew for us! HoneyBaked Ham has been perfecting their products for over 50 years, which makes me confident that I’m serving only the best quality food to our guests. It’s a meal everyone I know enjoys, and makes those moments extra special. …Continue Reading…

VTech Innotab 3, The Learning App Tablet GIVEAWAY!

Default post image

CLOSED

*UPDATED to add a giveaway! See bottom of this post

Recently, my daughter and I were provided a sample (from VTech) to review the new VTech Innotab 3 Learning Tablet, and it couldn’t have come at a better time! My daughter has gone through some serious dental work lately, so we’ve been relying on the VTech Innotab 3 to keep her quiet, entertained and educated while we’ve had some long waits at the dentist’s office.

The Innotab 3 is a learning app tablet, that literally has hundreds of uses!

20131027 200817

My daughter was so excited, she couldn’t wait for me to take a pic to open it!

There’s a 180° rotating camera and video recorder that will keep your kiddos entertained for HOURS by letting them edit photos, special effects and more! This has to be my daughter’s favorite use, because she loves making movies of herself and friends with it. The fact that it rotates is something I love, because she’s not always asking me to hold the camera icon wink With the camera, there’s also the WonderCam which can add funny faces, frames, backgrounds and crazy effects to any of your photos! With 55 different effects, your child will have a blast!

The art studio brings out even more creativity within your child, by letting them “paint”, draw, color, and using stickers to decorate their masterpieces! M loves to use the art studio when she’s having quiet time. It’s a great app for the car, or when you’re waiting for a table at your favorite restaurant!

20131027 200900

Kiddo playing quietly, while we had a one-hour wait!

The built-in E-reader with Story Dictionary really helps your budding reader! They can read interactive e-books that you can download from the Learning Lodge, and learn the meanings of words with the built-in story dictionary. This is something we love to do together, where we can talk about the story once she’s finished reading. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my daughter’s reading comprehension after using the Innotab 3 for a couple weeks. Parents can also track their child’s progress in the Learning Lodge as well.

And of course, there are games! Using motion, sound and touch, your child can use the D-Pad and stylus (an extra one is even included!) to add to fun! My Magic Beanstalk is a really fun game included, where you have to “grow” your beanstalk with magic! It’s a favorite, and I found myself playing with it AFTER my kiddo went to bed!

You can also download several of your favorite character games and books through the Learning Lodge (there’s over 350 apps available!)! We’ve found Disney Planes, Monsters University and even BRAVE related apps!

The Innotab 3 also comes with MP3 player, Notes, Calendar, Clock, Calculator (a must-have for my math-obsessed 2nd grader) and Friends List apps.

When you register your VTech Innotab 3 in the Learning Lodge, you also receive a one-year limited warranty, and 1 free download (some restrictions apply).

To find out more, you can also visit VTech on Facebook and Twitter.

 

Want to win one of your own? Simply answer #1 or all of the following (optional), leaving a comment for each. The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, November 6th at 10:00am EST, just in time for the holidays!

MANDATORY:

1) Tell me why you think the Innotab 3 is the perfect fit for the special child in your life!
