Fuhu Nabi Jr Tablet for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers

Updated on April 16, 2013

A Mini Tablet for Little Kids

The Fuhu Nabi Jr is a 5 inch mini tablet for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. This isn't a pretend tablet, it's a real Android tablet with a good specification that run applications for kids.

Anyone with a baby or toddler and a smartphone knows that they go together really well, until the baby drops the phone or accidentally phones your boss! Or you need the phone back - they always want to use it at the same time as you.

Well this little tablet is aimed at the littlest fingers and even has a baby monitor feature so it's useful as soon as a baby is born!

What's Different about the Fuhu Nabi Jr?

The Fuhu Nabi Jr differs from the Leap Pad 2 and InnoTab 2 in that it targets children from babies up rather than from preschool age.

The VTech InnoTab 2 Baby does target children from age 1 but it isn't a powerful Android tablet. The Fuhu Nabi 2 has an excellent specification that should cope well with kids apps and as a media player.

The Nabi Jr also has a range of Integrated Plug and Play Toyccessories including the video baby monitor, a karoake machines, cash register, game controller and Nabi Pet. The Oregon Scientific MEEP! is another kids Android tablet with physical accessories.

Rather than a range of separate educational titles, the Nabi Jr comes with the Wings Education System which takes kids from Pre-K through to 6th grade.

So what is the Fuhu Nabi Jr? It's a learning tablet aimed at very young children - the idea is that you buy the tablet for a new baby and they use new features as they grow.

The Nabi Jr starts off as a video baby monitor with its optional infrared night vision camera.

Young babies can enjoy music and videos on the tablet and then start using apps as they get older - infants and toddlers naturally take to touchscreen devices like phones and tablets. And there are learning apps for preschoolers too.

It's a smaller and cheaper sibling to the successful Fuhu Nabi 2 tablet for kids.

 

Video Preview - From CES 2013

This little tablet is looking great. I do hope they put the stylus on a cord through - the average toddler will lose that stylus in the first 5 minutes!

Where to buy

At time of writing there is limited availability.

There has been some availability of the @Amazon and there is some availability on eBay.

Its release was delayed until early 2013 and it's full release has been delayed further still. I don't think this is a bad thing. They are just making sure they have everything ready in the software and cloud so that users get a great experience.

Choice of colors?

The bumper for the Nabi Jr will be available in various colors, not just red.
