Last Friday we explained to you how the rugged Polaroid tablet for kids would be on show during CES 2013, and that we would offer you a hands-on video once one became available. Well we have that video for you below, and you’ll also be happy to know that the Polaroid Kids Tablet is already available to purchase from their online store.
We already told you about some of the main features of this new tablet, but being able to see video footage rather than images really makes you understand why such a tablet is so important. Having an iPad, my face is always filled with fear every time a child goes near it, but there will be no such worries with Polaroid’s child friendly tablet as it can withstand a drop from waste height with no fear of damage to the tablet, or your bank account.
Okay, so we know that this device is not going to blow your mind when it comes to specs or screen quality, but it’s not about that because young children do not care about things like that, they just love to play games while learning at the same time. While we’re all for kids having fun, one of the features we like the most is what comes preloaded onto the tablet, which is Dr. Seuss books and Smithsonian kids books, along with Nook as well.
As we said above the device is now available and the Polaroid tablet for kids price is $149.99, which is not that expensive when you take into consideration the educational value. We also love how parents can stay in control of what the child can view on the custom web browser thanks to parental controls, which offers a safe mode allowing you peace of mind.
