Toys ‘R’ Us has announced its first-ever consumer electronics device, a kid’s tablet called the Tabeo.
Available exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us stores beginning Oct. 21, the Tabeo will come pre-loaded with 50 free apps and integrated parental controls. The Tabeo is now available for pre-order on the Toys ‘R’ Us website.
"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 kid’s tablet, resulting in Tabeo," says Troy Peterson, vice president and divisional merchandise manager, Toys ‘R’ Us, U.S. "We are proud that Tabeo offers robust and flexible parental controls that can help protect children as they surf the Internet, and we are pleased to offer the Tabeo App Store, which features only kid-safe content carefully curated by the Toys ‘R’ Us team."
Among the apps that will come standard with the tablet are “Angry Birds,” “Fruit Ninja,” “Temple Run,” Discovery Kids’ “Putterbugs,” “AlphaTots,” “Operation Math” and an e-book version of Little Red Riding Hood.
More than 7,000 additional apps will be available at the Tabeo App Store.
A suite of accessories for the Tabeo will also be available at launch, including bumpers in multiple colors, cases featuring kids-favorite licenses and docks.
