My kids love their Innotabs, this enables me to treat them without it costing the earth, especially when they are picked up at 9.99. Perfect when it comes to parties too (only if the recipient has a innotab though!), the endless amounts of toys at parties most of the mums say 'what a great idea' and wish they'd thought of it, it's at the top of my wish list for my kids with my family. My children are Home educated too so we have endless amounts of fun and sometimes time between activities, they learn whilst they play and gives me extra prep time for the solid work too, it lets them relax after each block of work and the apps are educational, some are a bit 'what's the point?' but you get that with everything I think.
