Tablets are a revolutionary way to interface with technology, and kids need a way to get used to using them in a  way where it is both safe and educational.  Parents need to keep their phones and tablets safe from rugrats. Toys R Us has just the tablet to fit in new niche the Tabeo e2.  The e2 has all the specs needed to run the newest apps, 8GB of Flash memory, Jelly Bean 4.2, Dual core 1.0 Ghz CPU, Quad-core GPU and 1GB of RAM.  All this makes for a zippy tablet which is a breeze to use.

One of the little oddities we ran into upon initial setup is, a wireless internet connection is needed to set up the parental settings.  Without this connection none of the apps can be run.  But once the connection is made setup is simple.  With a few steps and an email address.  What I really like about the tablet is its sleek slim design.

Tablets can be great fun, if you know how to use them.  Kids are now exposed to a plethora of technology which previous generations could barely dream of and the best way to get them into the swing of things is by letting them use them.   The issue being most tablets are sensitive pieces of electronics.  So what is a parent to do?

vtech innotabMy little fella just started his summer break. We all know that kids lose a lot of knowledge over the summer- Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Some students also lose more than two months in reading achievement. (Cooper, 1996) Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.

v techI personally am not a huge fan of plugging kids in all day, or letting children have free reign over mom and dad’s tablets and phones, they are expensive and not made to be used as toys. So many kids are plugged in all day as it is, not spending enough time playing outside or playing games or with mom and dad. However, a little educational play goes a long way, and there is a time and a place for technology. In today’s modern world, there is a need to let kids have technology to a degree. Why not let them use tablets made for kids, like the VTech Innotab.
