LOS ANGELES- November 20, 2012- Ematic, a leader in value tablets, launches the FunTab, a 7” Android 4.0 tablet, for children.   It is an intuitive, touchscreen device that teaches your child about various subjects, sparks their creativity, and simply keeps them entertained for hours with access to thousands of popular, parent-approved apps and features.

Designed for comfort, the FunTab sports a durable and rubberized texture for easy gripping.  This impressive tablet is the result of a collaboration between Ematic and ZoodlesTM, an award-winning app for kids.  It guarantees a safe online environment, and offers parents peace of mind with total access to the content available for their child, and a parent dashboard to track educational progress.

Preloaded with today’s most popular apps, the FunTab bundles an assortment of fun games such as Angry Birds, Where’s My Water, Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja and more.  Child-specific features include:

  • Art Studio- a creative platform that allows your child to trigger their inner artist.  Parents can view the child’s art in the program gallery, and use gold stars to mark their favorite designs.
  • Video Mail- a unique, interactive way for children to keep in touch with their family and classmates from Zoodles.com.  Users can record short video messages with the FunTab’s front camera.

Safety was Ematic’s top priority when designing the FunTab.  By joining forces with Zoodles, parents have the ability to monitor the online content their child is exposed to, and even customize lists of “safe” websites.  Adults can access Zoodles.com from any computer to track their child’s activities, and read detailed reports showcasing educational progress, artwork, video messages and more.
