The Fufu Nabi Jr. is another robust tablet that's built to withstand drops and bumps that you can expect your tablet to suffer from while in the hands of your child. It has a robust case that has four red bumpers on all the corners that absorb shock damage and protect the tablet from getting busted.
Fuhu Nabi Jr. is safe right out of the box, and you won't have to worry about your child's information or data accessed by anyone but your own family. The tablet itself is COPPA compliant by TRUSTe which means that despite what your child does, third-party apps or businesses won't be able to access the information without your explicit consent.
The tablet itself comes curated for early childhood education which comes with a program called Wings First Steps Plus which is a program that covers your letters, counting, tracing, and other skill sets that are expected of your child to have by the time they hit preschool.
The Wings First Steps package has a full pre-kindergarten curriculum and over 1,400 free lessons for your child to interact with on a daily basis.
Parents can keep an eye on how their child is doing thanks to the Wings N-Site Real-time reporting tool that gives your child a grade based assessment of where your child is proficient and where they're struggling. This program also goes to practice recommendations for your child to use when they're fighting in a specific area.
While in Nabi mode, your child can explore the many different apps and learning games without constraint but brings peace of mind to the parent because everything that's in Nabi mode is parent approved as far as apps, games and other content are concerned.
If you switch your tablet to parent mode, you get access to an extensive array of Nabi management utilities as well as a typical Android experience for a tablet. Parent mode is password protected, so you know your little one won't get into it unless you allow them to.
Another excellent feature that the Fuhu Nabi Jr. provides for parents and their children is the time controls that you can put into place. If you find yourself having difficulties getting your child away from their tablet, you can set different amounts of screen time that shuts off when your child is supposed to put the tablet down.
The Fuhu Nabi Jr. also provides full usage reports to parents that give you insight into how long your child plays on the tablet as well as which apps they prefer to use and their overall activity.
Another fun feature that the Fuhu Nabi Jr. supplies for your child is when your tablet has timed out on how long your child can play on it, an animated character will appear on their screen and tells your child when it's time to exercise, do homework, or even go outside to play.
This feature is a great way to encourage your child to put down the tablet without you having to suffer through a tantrum because they can't play with their tablet for a while.
The Nabi Jr. also provides parents the ability to put out a chore list that's easy to create and manage; you can even get your child involved by helping them build their chores in which they can start doing. The treasure box feature that the Nabi Jr. has is virtually an app store for children.
Children can go through the categories that interest them the most which allow them to browse through some of their favorite kid safe movies, games, apps, and even TV shows with their Nabi coins. These little coins can get earned through performing in completing chores, and it helps motivate children to learn and complete different tasks.
This factor is a great feature to help teach your children about earning money and spending it wisely early on as well.
The Nabi Jr. tablet is only five inches in screen size, and it has over eight gigabytes of storage space available to you. There is an option to add the amount of space thanks to the SD slot if you feel that that's not enough space for what your child needs for their education.
A quad-core processor powers the tablet itself and currently runs off of the Android 4.4 KitKat OS. That doesn't make it one of the fastest tablets on the market, so when you know your child is going to want to play with it, it might be a good idea to power it up before your child gets antsy.
If the Nabi Jr. sounds like a tablet that you and your child would benefit from, you can find it on Amazon for a $$$.
