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 Zoodles, 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.
