Tabeo

If you’ve ever thought about getting your kids a tablet (I know I have) but haven’t been able to find something actually built for small clumsy hands, then the Tabeo by Toys r Us might just be the answer.

The (stripped back) ICS powered 7″ tablet has kids first in mind with integrated parental controls and it can even be disabled remotely. According to Toys r Us:

“Over the past year, we’ve spent considerable time talking to parents and children to determine what features and functions they really want in a kids’ tablet, resulting in tabeo”

The tabeo, which comes with 50 pre-installed apps ranging from games to educational books, has a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU, 4GB memory expandable with MicroSD, 800 x 480 screen (can playback H.264 up to 1080p resolution @ 30fps), a front facing camera and incredibly mini-HDMI output. Full specs on the press release page.

    $150 USD is too high for a crippled tablet with a cheap & removable rubber bumper. I wanted my kids to have a tablet with some learn to spell apps but instead I just gave them my old HTC Magic. The screen is very small but they don’t seem to care. If they break it, I’ll live.

    The biggest problem I have with it the Magic is they keep pressing the home button and can’t get back into the app by themselves (one is 1.5 years old and the other is 3.5 years old). For me to spend a the probable $250 AUD (because we would have to pay the additional “you-live-in-Australia-and-this-is-computer-related tax”), I’d need to know it was basically proof against being hurled at the ground by a toddler and also you could make it difficult to close the apps, in some way (i.e. the UI would need to be child-proofed too).

    Actually you could buy it for $20 less:

    It’s apparently a re-branded Archos Child Tab.
