VTech have announced that three new high-tech electronic learning aids will be added to its toy range in time for Christmas. Two of the new products are updated versions of the bestselling InnoTab tablet computer. While Mobigo, the hand-held device, is also updated.Continue Reading
The VTech InnoTab was among the most wanted toys of Christmas 2011 and just a few days into 2012 an updated version is being marketed to retailers in the toy industry’s trade press.
A full page advert for the new InnoTab has appeared in the February edition of Toy News. As well as sporting a more refined appearance, the new iPad-like tablet computer for children will feature a microphone and a camera with a lens can be twisted to face towards or away from the user that’s viewing the screen.Continue Reading
There is still some last minute hope for those wishing to buy a VTech Innotab for Christmas, without paying over the odds. LeapPad is much harder to find from well-known retailers, so snap one up quickly from eBay or Amazon, while there is still a chance.
UPDATE 17th December 2011
The chances of getting one from a well known retailer before Christmas, has now become very remote. So, that leaves eBay and Amazon as the best hope.
I’ve just witnessed a LeapPad auction end at £88 (plus P&P) and an InnoTab auction end at £85 (again extra for delivery). A little eBay tip: if you’re looking for a deal, select “Time: Ending Soonest” on the “Sort by” menu button that appears on the right hand side of the screen above the product list. John.
At this very moment, John Lewis and The Entertainer have the InnoTab in stock online for home delivery. eBay prices of VTech’s iPad-style tablet computer for children are not too expensive, Please note, that the pink version is exclusive to Argos in Britain, so if you cannot get it at the catalogue store then it maybe worth buying from eBay as soon as possible.
LeapPad prices are higher on auction sites and from third party sellers, however, too many traders have tried to profit on the back of the high demand for this LeapFrog product, so (as I write this) prices are around £100 – £110; and not the double money some of the eBay listers were hoping for.
Good luck in you search for these most want items. I hope your children’s LeapPad and InnoTab Christmas dreams come true.
No, demand has been so great for the iPad style tablet computer for children, that it has become very difficult to find in the shops. Over the last few weeks I’ve been asked several times a day about whether VTech InnoTab has been involved in a recall; no the Innotab is available in a select number of shops.
As I write this, John Lewis and The Entertainer have the VTech InnoTab in stock online for home delivery, it’s also worth checking Toys R Us. Please note, that the pink version is exclusive to Argos in Britain.
