The new iDiscover App Activity Table from VTech is everything a play table could need and more. By using an iPad or tablet in the center of the table it makes it much more interactive and educational than a regular activity table. The table also has a protective screen to cover the tablet.
The table has many different features for children to enjoy including:
• Piano keys that are different colors.
• A number roller and an alphabet roller.
• A steering wheel complete with a horn and a gear stick.
• Buttons of basic colored shapes.
These features will interact with different apps that come with the free downloadable app pack. This pack will include 6 apps that will interact with what the child plays with.
The iDiscover App Activity Table was released in August three years ago. As of September 2016 it is listed on Amazon at $44.99.
Who would buy the iDiscover App Activity Table?
The activity table is aimed at young children between the ages of 9 – 36 months old.
Things we like about iDiscover App Activity Table
The table is made up of different and bright colored parts that would appeal to young children. It helps with cognitive learning as on some games children have to relate what they see on the screen to something on the table.
One good feature is that the screen will rotate to face the child, so when playing the driving game with the steering wheel the screen will face the right direction.
The iDiscover App Activity Table was released in August two years ago an had 6 associated apps with it.
One of these shows pictures of hot air balloons with a connected shape. To release the balloon the child has to press the corresponding shape.
Things we don’t like about iDiscover App Activity Table
The biggest downside to this is that if the parents don’t own an iPad or a tablet then it becomes just a regular activity table. And despite the protective screen it does mean letting a young child play with several hundred dollars of technology.
Is iDiscover App Activity Table worth the money?
At $44.99 and with a good few years’ worth of use as the child ages it’s defiantly worth the money (as long as the parents already own a tablet). It’s a great way to not only entertain a young child but to also help them learn and improve co-ordination.
The iDiscover App Activity Table is available in all major toy stores, especially ones aimed at toddlers and babies. It is also available online on Amazon.
