If you have a kid (or more than just one), surely you would know that while growing up, they do not have exactly the most delicate of touches, but instead, can be rather rough with their surroundings. Handing them your spanking new tablet tend to be more exciting than sitting in a roller coaster as you watch their every movement to make sure there are no opportunities for scratches or knocks to happen. Why not buy yourself some peace of mind by giving them the MEEP! tablet from Oregon Scientific?
This Wi-Fi 7” tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is said to be the most rugged of its kind in its class, sporting a protective silicon bumper that comes in bright orange, a recessed display and a cutting-edge zForce touch screen which will not shatter even when dropped. Retailing for $149.99 a pop, this is not the cheapest tablet for kids, but at least it is tough enough to withstand the rigors.
Parents will also be pleased to know that the MEEP! tablet boasts of customizable cloud-based settings so that one can hand-pick (“whitelist”) the websites or keywords that their kids will be able to access (or otherwise). 4GB of internal storage is augmented by a microSD card slot just in case you need to carry additional data with you on the go.
