If you’re looking for a tablet that’s more child-friendly than your iPad or the multitude of Android tablet offerings out there, Oregon Scientific’s MEEP! tablet is one option worth considering. It doesn’t skimp on tech specs: the 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB storage powers a custom Android 4.0-based firmware which lets your child download games, learning apps, ebooks, and more using a virtual coin allowance. The device also features a rugged silicone sleeve and shatter-proof touchscreen to keep it safe in kids’ hands. What probably appeals most to mums and dads, however, is the remote parental controls that allow you to monitor your child’s activity on the MEEP! from any computer or mobile device.
While the MEEP! tablet is currently only available in the United States for US $149.99, you can always buy online and ship it via a forwarder – together with some cool accessories, perhaps?
