Review and giveaway: VTech Innotab Learning Cartridges

*Disclosure: I received the learning cartridges, information about them and the chance to host a giveaway, all thanks to VTech. All opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

If Ethan had his way, his day would consist of sleeping for about 10 hours, and playing on some sort of electronic device for the other 14.  Unfortunately for him, he has a mom who doesn't quite agree with that life plan and who limits his screen time. When I do let the kids play with their electronic devices, I'm always happy when they choose a game or app that is educational. Lately, they've been doing just that- asking to play with their VTech Innotab 3 and choosing two new learning cartridges that we recently received to review. Here's a bit about them, from information that I was sent:
 

InnoTab® Learn to Write with Cody & Cora learning cartridge
(Ages 3-6 years; MSRP: $24.99)
-          Go on learning adventures with Cody the Smart Cub™ and Cora the Smart Cub™ in Learn to Write with Cody & Cora for InnoTab. Read the e-Book about an adventure Cody and Cora take while writing and spelling words.
-          Learn and develop handwriting skills in a progressive manner with 11 activities and games.
-          Includes a fun e-Book about an adventure with Cody and Cora

InnoTab® Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Busy Day in Alphabet Town learning cartridge
(Ages 2-5 years; MSRP: $24.99)
-          Explore Alphabet Town with Casey, Paul, Frank and Cyrus in the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town game for InnoTab. Read about their adventure in the e-Book or join the residents of Alphabet Town as they build roads, rescue kittens and more in fun learning games.
-          This InnoTab software title features nine creative activities and learning games that teach letters, numbers and more.
At 5 and 7 years old, my kids are at the upper age range for these two learning cartridges, but they've still really been enjoying them. I like the fact that the cartridges and the games on them provide reinforcement of what my kids are learning in school, but in a fun way.  This is especially the case for my son, who is struggling a lot with his reading and writing skills. Anything that makes him excited about reading and writing is great and these learning cartridges do just that.  VTech offers tons of other learning cartridges and downloadable apps for the Innotabs, on all sorts of subjects, so be sure to check out all VTech has to offer.

I have good news- I'm giving away these two learning cartridges to one lucky reader! They work on all Innotab systems, so no worries if you don't have the Innotab 3.  Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
