Despite frequently being positioned as luxury items for grown-ups, kids love tablets too. And right now the biggest name in kid-targeted tablets is Fuhu, creators of the popular “Nabi” line. Now, they’re expanding their product, literally, with the new Nabi Big Tab. Featuring a giant 24” screen, the device is set to become the world’s largest Android tablet.
As opposed to the more personal experiences that smaller tablets provide, the Big Tab is designed to be something the whole family can enjoy. The massive, HD, 15-point capacitive touch screen lets multiple hands mess around with educational apps, movies, games, and books. Children can draw with Big Canvas and follow math, science, and reading lessons with the Wings Learning System. Fuhu’s other partners include Disney, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon.
The Big Tab also uses Nabi’s standard parent mode where moms and dads can monitor what content their child consumes and for how long. They can even participate by creating chore and homework lists along with giving prizes for jobs well done. And when the kids go to bed, the device becomes a traditional Android tablet, just bigger.
The tablet itself weighs a whopping 13 lbs. and is 0.9” thick. There’s also a slightly smaller 20” version in the works. Both models feature 16GB of internal storage, a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 chipset, and a built-in kickstand. However, with a half hour battery life, users should keep it plugged in pretty much at all times. The Big Tab launches this fall starting at $449 so start writing to Santa kids.
