Tablet provided. The honest opinions are our own.
Dave has had a smartphone since Kora and Logan were toddlers. He didn’t let them play with it much back then but on occasion he would download a toddler friendly app and in minutes they were swiping, pinching, and using the touchscreen to play simple games. As they’ve grown, touchscreens and tablets have become a part of their lives. While we have found a number of great apps for our tablet I’m always interested in learning more about tech & gadgets targeted toward children.
That’s why when I heard about the Vinci Early Learning System and Tablet, I was immediately intrigued.
Vinci was created by a mom as a collaborative and fun learning experience for children from 18 months to 5 years. I was pleased to learn it is the only Android tablet designed, tested, and FDA approved for children 18 months and older.
Vinci is designed to grow with children and is comprised of 43 learning subjects and 3 curriculum levels. It helps children with thinking skills, emotional & social skills, math & logical reasoning, language & literacy, science, and general knowledge.
I’ve spent some time with Vinci as well to get a good feel for it and would recommend it to anyone with a child 6 and under. The games are fun, incredibly interactive, and educational too.
I like that the apps are categorized in three different curriculum levels. The first level is for children ages 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 years old and it helps them learn how to operate the touchscreen as well as some simple thinking challenges. The next level is also for children of the same age range but things get a bit tougher, and the third level is for children 3 1/2 to 6 years old.
We spent much of our time with the apps in the third level. I was amazed by the amount of information packed into these apps and how interactive they were. I loved that the apps are fun and encourage the kids to think, remember, and react.
Some of the apps Kora & Logan enjoy the most include:
Where In The World Did You See…Children carefully watch an animated pirate ship scene and then are asked questions about what they remember.
This Is Absurd! Strange things are happening in this African Savannah scene. Children are asked to look over the scene and pick out things that don’t belong.
American Northeast, American Northwest, & American Southeast These apps are a fun way to learn about American history & culture. It’s easy to browse around and click the landscape to learn about animals, people, and more. There’s even games to play for more fun.
The Vinci Early Learning System Tablet would make a fantastic holiday or birthday gift for that child in your life. It’s a fantastic way to encourage learning in a fun and high-tech way that grows with the child and challenges them as they get older. This system has so much to offer in a fun and educational way that I know it will be a hit with children and parents for years to come.
