Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Tablet Powered by nabi is for ages 4 and up. It will appeal to fans of the Hot Wheels racing brand as well as kids and parents looking for a kids' tablet that balances fun entertainment with interactive educational content.

What To Be Aware Of

All content preloaded on the Hot Wheels Powered by nabi tablet is COPPA-compliant. Parents may access the Google Play store through mommy mode to upload additional apps to the device. Any additional downloads may not be COPPA-compliant so always be sure to review apps before uploading them to your child's profile. Parents can also add and delete apps from view on your child's profile, or create separate profiles on the device for use by multiple children. 

Any children's electronics should be viewed as extra tools in your child's toy box. 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, 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.
