EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The American Girl Tablet powered by nabi is part of a Mattel's line of children's tablets preloaded with hot branded content. This tablet features American Girl content and styling. In addition to all the original preloaded nabi content (Wings Learning System, nabi Dream Pro Studio, nabi Konnect, nabi Pass), American Girl fans can find all their favorite content in one place. This includes tips from the American Girl Z Crew on how to make movies, DIY AG Crafts ideas such as tissue blossom flowers, and more.

The tablet runs on nabi's BLUE Morpho OS, which features more than 400 digital experiences for kids to explore. Kids can also further customize the tablet with different wallpaper themes, sound effects, and added content. 

Is It Fun?
This tablet is two-fold. It has the exciting interactive content fans of American Girl will love exploring and interacting with, including all their favorite American Girl doll characters, but it also is loaded with educational content to keep their minds engaged as they play.
Who It’s For
The American Girl Tablet powered by nabi is for ages 4 and up from Mattel. While some aspects of this tablet may appeal to those looking for a beginner tablet, only an American Girl fan is going to truly appreciate its value .
What To Be Aware Of

Other tablets in the Powered by nabi line include the Barbie Tablet, Fisher-Price Learning Tablet, and the Hot Wheels Tablet. Each features COPPA-compliant programs. Parents can also access Google Play in parent mode to add additional apps and content to the device, but any additions may not be COPPA-compliant. nabi suggests that parents always review apps in parent mode before uploading them into your child's profile. Apps can also be added or removed on your child's profile in mommy mode. Here parents can also manage and monitor multiple profiles for all this kids in your household. nabi Coins is also a digital currency parents can purchase and use as motivation to get kids to complete chores, learning lessons, and more.

As with any electronic device, these devices should always be viewed as extra tools in your child's toy box. So review the content they are engaging with, limit their viewing time, and interact with your child during play. While the helpful mommy mode on the nabi tablets certainly makes this easier to do (especially for younger kids engaging with the Fisher-Price tablet), observing and engaging with your kids helps to further reinforce their fine motor skill development and foster their understanding of cause and effect through play.
