Review: VTech InnoTV Educational Gaming System is a Great Combo for Young Kids

I recently learned about VTech's new InnoTV Educational Gaming System and was impressed. I think it's a great combo of gaming and educational learning for preschool (and a little older) children.

Note: I received product sample for review purpose. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

So of course I had to introduce it to my niece. My niece and my son usually play games together but there is the age and ability difference. My niece can't really play the educational games my son is now using. So she was super excited to receive the VTech InnoTV with games that suit her educational level (and can be leveled up as she grows from the Learning Lodge)

The InnoTV features:
  • 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
  • 2 multiplayer games
  • 8GB of memory, expandable to 40GB with a 32GB microSD card (not included)
  • Additionally, 33 music albums and 23 videos are available for purchase.

Setting up the VTech InnoTV went quickly...once I let my nephew "help" me unpack the box. *sigh*

Since the InnoTV, is a TV-based gaming system for kids, parents will have to setup the system via their wifi connection. But the directions and setup are easy and done quickly. From there using the controller, the child (or parents) can pick games to play or use one of the other InnoTV sections.

My niece learned to use the control quickly. The size was good for her little hands to hold and the panels/function easy for her to remember. The controller features a joystick, smart wheel and motion control so children can tilt and shake to play select games.

The InnoTV controller is really kid-friendly since it can easily be use by both right- and left-handed kids. Ironically my niece can use both her left and right hand so this is very cool feature for families. A simple change from underneath easily changed the controller from right to left usage.

With guidance from her mom (and me!), my niece was able to pick the game she wanted to play, pick the level for her age and start having fun (and learning)

After a few games, my niece was so proud she played the games while learning how to count, spell and more. She even shared he excitement with my son with some shared game play.

The InnoTV is really a great system for younger kids. The games themselves are well done and a good balance of playing and learning. I like that the games have age levels for families with more then one kid. Also that you can use with current carriages from other Vtech systems along with downloading more apps to the InnoTV system as your child grows in age and ability.

The InnoTV features a large number of learning games just for preschoolers that introduce language arts, math, science, STEM learning concepts and more, with access to a huge educator-supported library of additional games on VTech’s Learning Lodge® app store, as well as compatibility with a variety of InnoTab® MAX cartridges*.


The InnoTV can be used as a single-player or multiple players (one remote can be shared, or use an additional controller, sold separately), providing opportunities for social co-playing, important for preschoolers learning to share, cooperate and take turns.

Parents can also play along from their smartphone or tablet, where they can also personalize their child’s profile and customize the learning content in select games.

Because kids learn best when they’re having fun, many new software titles feature popular characters preschoolers love, including Frozen, Paw Patrol, Miles from Tomorrowland, Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins.

The InnoTV is available now at major retailers nationwide and Amazon.com. It is for children ages 3 – 8 years and retails for $69.99, making it an affordable first gaming system for kids.
