What It Is
What It Is
Today's kids are really into technology, and they want to have the same gadgets as mom and dad. But some parents are wary of handing an iPad over to their 4-year-olds. Oregon Scientific has come up with a product for young girls that lets them engage in tablet technology in an age-appropriate way. The Barbie Touch Screen Fashion Tablet has a touch screen, a stylus with built-in storage, a QWERTY keyboard, and lots of activities. There are eight activity categories: fashion, design, shopping, pets, music, party, games, and gadgets. Activity content includes matching, math, spelling, writing, musicmaking, and sequencing. You can also connect the tablet to your Mac or PC using the included USB cable to download additional game content and personalize the tablet with your child's name.
Why It’s Fun
With the Barbie Touch Screen Fashion Tablet, girls can have their very own tablet device just like mom and dad. Girls will love all the different games and activities they can play, and parents will like that the content is educational but presented to girls in a fun way.
Who It’s For
The Barbie Touch Screen Fashion Tablet is for ages 4—7.
What to Be Aware of
It may take at least 30 minutes to install the software on your computer and load new content onto the Fashion Tablet. You don't have to connect it to the computer before you play, though.
Three AA batteries are included.
