Innotab Learning Cartridge: Doc McStuffins & Spider-Man Review

***The VTech products mentioned below were provided for review, however, all opinions stated are that of my own.

I have learned that when it comes to learning, I have to get creative in teaching the kids by incorporating things they love. One thing that my oldest loves is characters— Doc Mcstuffins being on of those characters. I will find her throughout the day playing doctor/patient with her little brother and the things that she talks about really blow my mind. After play time, I let her practice on me, and I take the opportunity to talk about educational things about our body and how it works. That's when I hear her passing along this knowledge to her little brother who really cares only about three things: cars, trucks, and trains.

So needless to say, I had a pretty excited toddler on my hand when the Vtech Innotab Doc McStuffins Create & Learn with Doc! Learning Cartridge arrived at our doorstep. The learning games introduce important aspects of learning including education on our health, differentiating patterns, music, reading, and creativity. There is this fun game of "Boo-Boo's" where they open up and they find out the diagnosis of each toy and finding out how they can make them feel better. The e-reader is of course one of the favorite parts, as always. 

Vtech Innotab   also has a Spider-Man learning cartridge which is ideal for ages 4-7 and probably for those that are Spider-Man lovers, but I was surprised to find that Elliana really enjoyed it as well. I like that this learning game focused on spelling {something we are learning at home}, as well as things that we are just beginning to introduce such as weight balance and skip counting. The skip counting is a hard concept to grasp, and I am glad that I have something that helps enforce this subject. We also covered grounds on food groups, animals, light reflection, and materials. Graham was definitely into the E-book and thought the red man was great!
