Hot Gift! Vinci Kid's Tablet is #1 On My Boys' List!

Okay moms, if you are still looking for that perfect gift, we have found it! I have been looking all over for a tablet for Bean for Christmas, and when we got the chance to review the Vinci tablet, I knew it was the perfect one! When I heard that it was invented by a mom, I was in! We knew that we wanted to get Bean a tablet this year. Tater has his iPod Touch, and after Christmas will have his laptop too, and poor little Bean is so jealous. I knew that a kid's tablet would be perfect for him, but I couldn't decide which one... 

The first thing that really drew me in with the VINCI Tab is the unique design. I mean come on, doesn't it just look cool!? I think so! I love that it has the silicone handle around the outside. It makes it so much easier for him to grip than say, the iPod Touch or something like that. I was actually really concerned about getting him a tablet because I was afraid it would be dropped on the ground every five seconds, but this one is easy for him to handle! 

Another really cool thing about the VINCI is that it has a special parent's mode. The parent's mode has WiFi enabled. I really like that the kids mode doesn't have that stuff enabled, so I know exactly what Bean is able to get into. The curriculum on the VINCI tab is great too! I LOVE the fact that it has three different levels of learning games and apps. Level One is where we are right now. It is "The Curious" level and it is for 18 to 30 months to inspire your curious toddler. I love this mode, it is perfect for Beanie and where he is right now. He is not experienced with using a tablet yet, so this mode is just getting him comfortable and used to maneuvering around.

Once he is a little bigger, we will be able to move onto Level 2, The Confident. This level is from 2.5 to 3.5 years, so I think it won't be long until Beanie is ready for it. It's goal is to prepare your preschooler for future learning. And soon after that, we will be ready for level 3. Level 3 is The Capable, and it is for 3.5 to 5 year olds. I think this level would be great for Tater, but I seriously doubt that Bean is ever going to let Tater have a chance to use it !

The VINCI Curriculum covers a ton of subjects. There is language and literacy, math and science, which you would expect to find on a kid's tablet. But what I really like about the VINCI is that it goes a step beyond that and also has subjects like Thinking Skills and Emotional and Social Skills. I love that! I really feel like the VINCI Tab is giving him every thing that he needs, and he is getting a well rounded sense of the world. I love this thing! He does too! I swear, he doesn't ever put it down! When I take it away at bedtime, he screams and cries and has a fit. It's the first thing he looks for in the morning too! The fact that it has a camera was a big selling point for us, he LOVES to take pictures of everything, and I love to take pictures of him!

Furthermore, the VINCI just LOOKS cooler than other kid's tablets out there. My hubs is a big tech geek and he is a hard critic of all electronic devices. He has stopped me from buying Beanie a kid's tablet in the past, saying they all look like "cheap toys". Well, I have to agree. When he saw Beanie playing with the VINCI, he said "Whoa, what is that? It looks awesome!" Of course, he had to test it out as well, and he reported back that the VINCI passed with flying colors.

Our whole family has been incredibly impressed by the VINCI Tab! And we are just getting started! Check back with us in a couple weeks, for a follow up review and a recommendation of our favorite apps and games!

If you are looking for a really cool and innovative gift for your child for Christmas this year, you need to check out the VINCI! The VINCI is available online at a variety of retailers including Amazon and Walmart.
