There's no doubt that the Nabi 2 is the absolute best tablet on the market designed just for kids. When I reviewed it back in June, I came away impressed with everything that Fuhu was able to pack into this device, all while keeping the price around $200 (that was, of course, before the Nexus 7 was announced, so a $200 tablet that didn't suck was impressive in itself). The build is solid, it's packed to the brim with educational software, and the Monarch UI is a fantastic and intuitive interface for kids. In short, it's a great little piece of kit for children.

As I've already said, this device normally sells for around $200. But, if you hit up Wal-Mart starting at 8PM Thanksgiving night, you can score one for just $130. That's an insane deal on a real tablet - not some crap thrown together from two-year old hardware that manufacturer X had laying around.

Specs

  • Display: 7" 1024x600
  • Processor: 1.3Ghz quad-core Tegra 3
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 8GB, microSD card slot
  • Camera: 2MP front-facing camera with 720p video capture
  • Ports: microUSB, miniHDMI, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Battery: 4,000mAh

  • Age Range: The Nabi 2 caters to age groups from Pre-K to around fifth grade, but certain aspects go a bit above that range.

I'm sure this deal will sell out relatively quickly, so if you've been planning on getting your little one a tablet for Christmas, you better be in line early. You'll be happy you did.
