Tabeo 2 Tablet for Kids Exclusively at Toys R Us

With a 7 and an 8 year old, who are undeniably into technology, I knew this year I had to have a tablet for each of them. They both always want to play with mine, and I am getting tired of sharing!

We recently took a trip to see my mom on the train. She lives about 3 hours away, and I knew it would be a LONG ride for the boys, so I decided to pack up the 2 new tablets for them as a surprise.

One of my favorite things about the Tabeo 2, is that right out of the box, there are 30 apps preinstalled. With a different tablet, all games have to be found, ratings checked, reviews read, and then downloaded and installed. The Tabeo does all the work for you by compiling some of the best apps out there for children. 

The Tabeo 2 has 8gb of storage and can be upgraded to 64gb with a memory card. That's enough to hold a LOT of games and apps. 

Riley really loved that the Tabeo 2 has a front and rear facing camera. He took all kinds of silly pictures of himself on the train ride!

Some of the features are:
  • Operating system: Android Jelly Bean 4.2
  • 8" capacitive, multi-touch screen with a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution displays more than 16 million colors
  • Dual-core 1.0 GHz processor and a quad-core GPU offer quick and easy browsing, viewing and gaming
  • Customizable parental controls let you limit the content your child views and the amount of time he or she spends using certain apps
  • Preloaded with 30 apps, including learning apps like Operation Math, games such as Bejeweled 2 and Fruit Ninja, and more
  • tabeo App Store offers access to thousands of free apps, with 25 preselected apps suggested to help children with special needs learn and develop specific skills
  • Removable hard case with rubberized siding shields the tablet when dropped from a low height or when bumped into other objects
  • Dual-facing camera, microphone, built-in speakers and G-sensor
  • USB 2.0 interface
  • Plays video files with .avi, .mp4, .mkv, .mov and .flv extensions
  • MP3, WAV, APE, OGG and FLAC audio playback
  • 8 GB of internal storage; expandable up to 64 GB with a microSD card (sold separately)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Bluetooth and WiFi enabled
Yeah! WiFi enabled! The train didn't have WiFi but I was able to tether my phone to the Tabeo so that the boys could watch Netflix.

When you purchase a Tabeo 2 you will get:
  • tabeo e2 8" Kid's Tablet - Silver
  • Protective case
  • USB cable
  • Power supply
  • Start-up guide
  • Warranty booklet
Most of all, with the Tabeo 2, I love knowing the kids are safe. For one, all the apps that are available in the TabeoStore are free, so I don't have to worry about them spending money, second, all the apps are already parent approved, so I know they won't be downloading things they shouldn't be.

The Tabeo2 is also very resistant to damage. It hasn't been dropped, but from a friends experience with her son dropping his Tabeo, they said it wasn't damaged at all.

Right now the Tabeo 2 is on sale at Toys R Us for $129.99.
