It’s called the Tabeo and will feature a 7-inch screen powered by Andorid. It has Wi-Fi capabilities too. It will be available at Toys R Us on October 21. You can actually pre-order it online. It already comes pre-loaded with 50 child-friendly apps. You can download around 7,000 more apps.
It’s also protected by a soft frame, like a bumper to protect the device against falls. You know how kids are. If they don’t have sticky fingers, they have slippery ones.
Are you concerned about your child’s security especially when web surfing? Don’t worry. The Tabeo has extra controls in the built-in browser. You can set the Internet safety controls so that you won’t have to worry about your child’s Internet security. You can set controls for up to eight users. You can block certain categories or disallow access to specific websites. Is your child a tech genius? If your kid accesses the Internet through another browser then Tabeo will send you an email alert.
Is the time your child spends on his or her device an issue? Again, don’t worry. You can set the Tabeo to allow Internet access only during specific times or days.
The Tabeo will retail at $149.99, a big difference from the iPad. The Tabeo is one of the first 7-inch tablets released in the market. Other 7-inch tablets are Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. There are rumors of an iPad Mini though, to be released in October. Other kid-friendly tablets are VTech InnoTab, Meep, Nabi and LeapPad.
Tips for Parents
Always make it a point to know what your child is downloading. If possible, do the downloads together. Don’t let your child decide as he or she might already be clicking on an unsafe link. Also, never give him or her access to an account especially if the site is new. Your child can have his own account in trusted websites such as Nickelodeon, Disney, etc. but when it comes to adult sites and sites that require payment, make it clear that they cannot enter any information regarding themselves or the other members of the family. If they are in doubt, they should ask you first.
Never let the tablet get in the way of family time. Children must spend time with their parents, their siblings and their friends. It is important that your child grows in a balanced environment. Set aside a play time, a study time, a chores time and some bonding time. The tablet is there to help you and not replace you.
