As tablets become more commonplace the growth in the sector is clearly moving towards offering content to a younger audience. That’s all well and good but lots of parents have told us that they are hesitant to hand over their $500+ iPads to a preschooler. Along comes Fuhu to the rescue with their Nabi Jr., designed to alleviate those qualms with a durable and sturdy tablet designed specifically for the age group. How durable and sturdy? A very thick rubber pad surrounds it! OK so its not going to break but does it deliver the kind of tablet experience we want for our kids? In a word, Yes. Nabi Jr. is both appealing and immediately inviting with large colorful icons and images that you will see the moment you turn it on. The addition of Nick Jr. characters further enhances the appeal. Nabi Jr. comes loaded with a wealth of features like a camera for taking video or stills along with apps and activities including reading, writing, puzzles, geography and early math. More are available for download. There is a Reports feature that lets parents track their children’s progress, which will probably happen only at night when you pull it out of their sleeping hands.
