SmarTab Junior – The Christmas Gift That Keeps On Giving

Media Release: 20 November 2013

SmarTab Junior – The Christmas Gift That Keeps On Giving

These days it seems most under fives are more at ease with technology than we are, which means they can’t wait to get their inquisitive wee fingers on your phone! The SmarTab Junior Tablet is the ultimate Christmas gift and will not only keep them entertained and educated, but will keep them away from your laptop or iPad – a win for your kids and for you!

The SmarTab Junior Tablet is designed specifically for children aged four and up and provides straight out of the box entertainment that little ones can start using straight away. Just power it on and they can start reading Spiderman comics, playing Sugar Rush or learning their ABC's straight away. Creative fun and educational, the tablet is pre-loaded with over 50 books, educational apps and popular Disney and Marvel games, including Wreck-it-Ralph, Spiderman and Mickey Mouse.

Entertaining videos made just for kids are easily accessed with the included Kids Vids, and Toon Goggles apps, while front and rear facing cameras allow you to have fun with your kids by calling them up and seeing them on the camera. A great way to keep an eye on them too!

As a parent, it’s important to be able to easily control what children are up to. Powered by Android, the SmarTab Junior Tablet is familiar, easily navigated and can be set up in just a minute. What’s more, it comes with a safe web browser and simple parental controls that allow mums and dads to decide whether it's time for the kids to learn or play. The SmarTab also functions as a normal tablet – so even parents might have a hard time keeping their hands off it!

The perfect 7" sized tablet is just right for miniature hands and the capacitive multi-touch screen is super easy to navigate. The SmarTab comes in four colours (blue, green, orange and pink) and features a rubberised chassis for protection against bumps and drops.

Jonny Munro of Firstin Wholesale says the SmarTab is more than for play and can be an extremely useful educational tool, helping children gain vital skills in a wired world. “Children that have been exposed to technology have shown greater gains in intelligence, problem solving and language skills compared to those children who do not use technology as they learn,” he says.

The SmarTab Junior Tablet retails for $249 and is available from The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery and Noel Leeming stores.
