We've talked about the Fuhu Nabi 2 quite a bit over the last year or so, and it's probably my favorite tablet designed specifically for kids. It's built tough, packed full of useful educational software, and sports enough power to stick with your little one for at least a few years.


Update: It looks like Wal-Mart has 'em beat, because they're letting the Nabi 2 go for $99 November 28th thru December 1st. That's solid.


If you've been considering a Nabi 2 for the kiddos on your Christmas list this year, now's the time to buy, because Best Buy is selling it for $130 – a full $50 off the already-low retail price. For those who may not have the 2's specs engrained into their memory, here's a quick rundown of what that buck-thirty will get you:

  • 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
  • OS: Android 4.0.4
  • Dimensions: 6.05" x 8.69" x 1.14" (with bumper case); 1.31 pounds

If you'd like more info on the Nabi 2 before biting the bullet and picking it up, we covered it rather extensively here. Don't take too much time, though, this deal is over in roughly 12 hours or when the units are gone, whichever happens first.

    Id buy one of these if I could rip that piece of rubber off of it.

      You can rip that piece of rubber off of it, but you are still left with the stupid plastic bump things on the back. We have had 2 of these for a year, and they really are fantastic for kids, but they most definitely are not slim or sleek. But the rubber bumper does come off easily. They make replacement ones in different colors, so Fuhu intended them to be removable.

        Excellent. Thanks for the reply

        You can remove the plastic piece on the back pretty easily. I think it's only held in place with a couple of screws.

          Oh cool, I didn't realize that. I never really looked very hard at them because they ARE my kids' tablets, and I want them to leave the rubber bumpers on too. They have taken a beating from the kids, but they show no signs of damage, just filthy screens that I occasionally clean off.

            I know those feels.

    Have bought 2 of these last year Black Friday. They DO NOT USE GORILLA GLASS! My toddlers cracked the screen in a single day.
    We went in and bought a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. It has survived this whole time with no scratches or cracks in both glass and plastic body. Purchased separate case and all is great.

      I get what you mean but you still don't allow your kids to rough house with a tablet. They're not invincible at all by any means but still monitor your kids behaviour and teach them not to be rough with electronics.

    Where did you find that it will be in sale 11/28-12/1?

  • Kirsten

    I was just wondering where you saw that the 99 dollar sale lasts until the 1st. I have the walmart ad where it says it starts at 8 on Thanksgiving but no mention of it lasting till the first. Thanks. Would much rather get it after Thanksgiving if possible.

    • MrWareWolf

      $99 price is on the website now, and says they will deliver to the store in a few days time from your order date..

      • Cookie Huddleston

        It is until the 1st or until they run out, Was at Walmart last nite and mgr explained to me. On the website it does show $99 but it also states not for purchase right now. Does anyone know if this deal will be online anywhere?

  • kam103

    At Walmart apparently you had to get a wrist band a couple hours prior to their sale. Something that was never mentioned in their sales ad
