Exclusively at WalMart

Durable, Educational Tablet Designed to Grow With Your Child

CHICAGO, Nov. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VTech Electronics North America,
LLC (www.vtechkids.com/) announced today the launch of the first Learning App
Tablet designed both with babies in mind and to grow with a child, suitable
for ages 12 months to 9 years. The InnoTab 2 Baby, the latest addition to
VTech's ever-expanding high-quality platform line, has been designed with
learning experts to deliver age-appropriate activities for infants. It is
full of specially crafted activities for babies and comes pre-loaded with 16
infant related apps including learning games, songs, creativity apps, baby's
first e-book, and over 100 signs from the leading baby sign language
organization, Baby Signs, Inc. (www.babysigns.com). The tablet has all of the
great features of the InnoTab 2 but special attention has been made to ensure
it is robust and durable for little hands including a protective gel skin.
Available exclusively at WalMart stores and through walmart.com, InnoTab 2
Baby retails at $89.96.

"The InnoTab 2 Baby is a great addition to VTech's range of award winning
Learning App Tablets and we're delighted to be selling it exclusively through
WalMart outlets. Parents will appreciate the chance to save their own tablets
from sticky hands, while at the same time provide age-appropriate learning
content and entertainment to their child," said William To, President of VTech
Electronics North America. "InnoTab 2 Baby is packed with baby-appropriate
features and we are particularly proud to include over 100 signs from Baby
Signs, Inc, the only research-based baby sign language program which has been
pioneered by specialist doctors since the 1980s". InnoTab 2 Baby is a great
example of an educational toy that will grow with a child and at the same time
offer incredible value for astute shoppers. The InnoTab 2 range, including the
InnoTab 2 Baby, allows parents to download engaging content with peace of mind
knowing that the content is age-appropriate, educational and fun because they
are downloading it from our Learning Lodge Navigator."

"We are delighted to bring our Baby Signs collection to a broader audience
through VTech's InnoTab 2 Baby Learning App Tablet", said Dr. Linda Acredolo,
co-founder of Baby Signs, Inc. "VTech's recognition and inclusion of our sign
language program is a perfect fit for this baby-appropriate learning toy, and
we are pleased to be giving parents and babies alike greater communication
skills through a fun, easy to use product from a highly reputable electronic
learning company".

InnoTab 2 Baby is a great investment tablet that will keep children engaged
and entertained while they learn, from 12 months to 9 years old. The
multi-media tablet, with a 5 inch touch screen, has a sleek design and
high-tech features. While being used by an infant, the gel skin ensures that
the tablet is protected but as a child grows this can be removed to ensure
that kids get the most out of their own touch-screen tablet which is also
equipped with a new rotatable digital camera and video recorder. The InnoTab
range offers age-appropriate learning content through its large range of
cartridges featuring kids' favorite characters available for $24.99 from major
retailers and at vtechkids.com. With a USB connection to VTech's download
center, the Learning Lodge Navigator, parents and kids can choose from
hundreds of downloadable e-books, games, music, and videos for more fun and
learning. See our entire range of InnoTab downloads at vtechkids.com
