Polaroid has announced a follow-up to their mildly successful Kids Tablet 2. The upgraded tablet is featuring the same 7-inch form of its predecessor, but it’s picking up a slightly improved processor, 1 GB of RAM, and Android 4.2. On top of that, it’s preloaded with over 70 apps and e-books for children, boasting offerings from Cartoon Network, Disney, and Marvel. For a child-friendly tablet, that’s a ton of content available right out of the box.
The tab will run $149 at Toys R Us, which is slightly more than similar child tablets, but when you factor in all of the additional freebies, it’s a solid deal. Anyone planning on picking one of these up as a Christmas present?
Polaroid is pleased to introduce the second generation of its highly-popular, award-winning tablet specifically designed for children— The Polaroid Kids Tablet 2. The 7.0” Kids Tablet 2 (PTAB780) features a stunning HD display, Dual-Core processor, and the Android 4.2 OS while still combining all the fun, entertainment, security, and durability kids and parents loved in the original version.
“Polaroid is bringing our 75 year tradition of instant sharing, fun and ease of use to a younger demographic with our Kids Tablet 2,” said Polaroid President and CEO Scott Hardy. “Children will now have the opportunity to experience an award winning device similar in specs to their parents’ tablets, but designed specifically to their needs and pre-loaded with content they want from our new partners, Disney, Marvel and Cartoon Network.”
Exciting New Content
The Polaroid Kids Tablet 2 is pre-loaded with over 70 popular books and apps (over $100 value) to keep children occupied for hours. The tablet now comes equipped with the full versions of 25 top-rated books and apps from Disney, Marvel and Cartoon Network that feature some of the most beloved cartoon and comic book characters. Children can learn to read with the help of comic book superheroes Spiderman, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk or play fun and exciting games with characters from Toy Story, Wreck-It Ralph and Cars.
Additionally, the Kids Tablet 2 features new and updated apps that help children express their creative sides. The new front and rear cameras, along with the Kids Cam app, allows young users to easily take pictures and video with music and special effects using the tablet’s built-in filters. Kids can also make their own music with the tablet’s DJ Studio, which is pre-loaded with a library of different sounds and beats.
Safe, Tough and Durable
The Polaroid Kids Tablet 2 continues to deliver the durability and security parents have come to expect from the Polaroid brand. The tablet is equipped with innovative side and rear bumpers to help protect it from accidental bumps as well as built-in parental controls and a safe web browser that are quick and easy to setup. The tablet is specifically designed to provide a safe and interactive environment for children, while at the same time giving them a real tablet experience. Also included is the exclusive App Shop which is loaded with a variety of free and paid kid-friendly apps. The tablet even features a display lock, which locks the tablet’s display and buttons, allowing young children to enjoy videos or interactive books without interruption.
