    Well we all know how kids like to play with 'our' toys, Toys R Us is releasing the Android Nabi Tablet made just for the youngins.

    Designed to distract kids aged six years and up, this tot-sized Android slate boasts a seven-inch, 800 x 480 capacitive touchscreen display, 4GB of onboard storage, and a 533MHz dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU. Now of course these aren't the best specs for a tablet, but sufficient enough to keep the kids occupied long enough for those Holiday road trips and the after Thanksgiving dinner.

    The tablet is described as 'kiddified', allowing them to watch tv, play games and perform other pre-approved actions on it. It also has a 'Mommy Mode' which takes the tablet up a step, allowing for more mature content and Toys R Us is planning to release an upgrade called 'Daddy Mode' and I'm not even going to render a guess of what that may include..

    But either way, it definitely would make a nice gift for any kid this holiday season. Parents can pre-order it for $200 at the link below.

    I would totally buy this for my 3yr old son. He has mastered the DS already, and tries to hi-jack our phones all the time.

    Yea I'm thinking of getting it for my 6 year old nephew. I think it would be a good introductory device.

    $200 for a tablet for a KID? Am I the only one who thinks that's a bit high of a price to pay for a kid tablet? If it was $99 that would be more reasonable in my eyes, but that's even a bit high.

    Personally I'd rather just give my children a Kindle Fire for that price....something they can grow into instead of grow out of.

    Maybe, but if your only buying for 1 kid ... plus, from what I understand, it is upgradeable software-wise, but I couldn't see like an older kid carrying it around.

    I would get this for my son too, but he jacks my Hp Touchpad all the time and even rooted and overclocked it himself...oh and he just turned 5. so i think if i got this for him hed prolly throw it back at me, lol. he also jacks his moms Droid all the time too. Kids these days are far more technically inclined than many of us or the elders ever were, gotta love it

    I just wanted to stop by and point out the Junior Tablet at $129.00, better than $199. And nearly same specs, but without the Android store wrapper this Nabi thing uses.

    Here is a link to it if you are interested in a kids friendly tablet for your kids this Christmas Junior Tablet | Best Kids Tablet | Tablet for Kids

    lol yep .. but, if you compare the price with the price like of a ps3 or xbox 360. I'd rather have my kid (If I had/have) one getting something that will get them geared and more knowledgeable towards technology as that's where the future is.. instead if JUST playing games.

    Yep, it's edumacational! :D Just look at all of us! Were super smart! xD
    Oh yeah... My kids won't have computer till they can build it themselves (I'll offer a little help) ;D
    Then for a tablet, they have to know how to root and sbf before I give it to them! ;)

    Don't laugh, this stupid thing has some better specs then even the Kindle Fire. Plus, your forgetting the security aspects of it. Keeps the kiddos from surfing and downloading the bad stuff. And you got the "Mommy" mode that allows it to be used as a standard tablet but you need the secret password, LOL.

    I'll wait for reviews on this before I get one of these for my daughter. It actually sounds perfect for her and just a $100 more then a LeapFrog Tablet, plus, it'll have "Daddy" mode so I can hack, err, play with it. :biggrin:

    Cool.

    This would be a killer gift if you had kids, grandkids, or nieces/nephews.

    I don't really have anyone to give this to. I do have 5 nieces/nephews, but their ages are spread apart. You can't really give them "nice" things since they'd fight over it and end up breaking it. Though, I heard Staples was having the PlayBook for $199. I'd much rather get that, put it in a iPad box, and give it as a gift to the oldest (12). She'd freak out thinking she had an iPad. OH! but it's just a PlayBook :laugh:
