VTech InnoTab 3S tablet allows kids to send messages

The InnoTab 35 can connect to WiFi to send messages

VTech is launching a tablet computer for children next month that allows them to send messages to their parents and friends.

The InnoTab 3S (rsp: £99.99) lets users send messages to phones and tablets via the Kid Connect app when connected to Wi-Fi. Users can also download content including games and ebooks from VTech’s online hub, the Learning Lodge. The tablet also has a camera and rechargeable battery.

A cheaper version without Wi-Fi, the InnoTab 3, is rolling out this month (rsp: £69.99).
