Product sample was submitted for review, all opinions are my own.
Nabi has been a popular brand for several years now and I have always been curious about their products when I would see them on display at stores. The bright red soft cover seems to just grab your attention no matter how old you are.
However, I always seemed to group android based tablets into two categories. One being the kind that only allows you to download those $15 a piece games that require you to buy cartridges at the store to play with. Or secondly being to difficult to use with hard to organize apps.
WELL! Nabi sent me the Nabi ELEV-8 and within 5 minutes of opening the box, everything I thought I knew about Nabi was proven wrong. We are now obsessed with this tablet and it is the kids go to system for screen time.
It is jam packed with features that are perfect for kids and tweens! With e-books, games, TV shows, drawing studio, and so much more.
Here are just 5 reasons why Nabi is Awesome!
- Educational. The Nabi ELEV-8 is equipped with the award winning Wings Learning System that offers over 300,000 questions and 16,000 lessons. Kids have fun learning with games and video tutorials through the Wings Classroom in Math, Reading, and Writing for pre-school through 6th grade. There is also full parent visibility so that we can check our children’s proficiency and how much time they spending on the learning section.
- Full Parental Control. Parents can set screen time limits, set time limits for particular apps, set reward game minutes for time spent on educational play, and so much more. Nabi gives parents’ control like no other tablet I have seen.
- Nabi Pass. The Nabi Elev-8 comes with 6 months of free Nabi Pass, which gives you all of the wings courses free, instead of purchasing them individually. It also gives you free access to countless games, movies, tv shows, apps, and e-books. My kids are currently having fun reading all the e-books which includes titles such as Rise of the Guardians and Ice Age. Their favorite feature is that if a book is to0 hard for them to read on their own, the Nabi can read it to them!
- Fun. What really got me about this tablet is how many great apps there are. All the games that kids are looking for with their favorite characters are available. TV shows such as Teen Titans Go and National Geographic, and e-books for kids ages 3 to 14. All the games that my kids loved on the more expensive tablets are available on the Nabi, however only the Nabi gives me this much control!
- Affordability and Design. Ok that’s two but both are important to us moms. The Nabi elev-8 retails for $149.99, that is a great price point for a full-featured tablet that offers all the games, shows, and apps that kids want with the full control that parents want.
As far as design goes, the Nabi Elev-8 is a thin and sleek tablet with front and rear cameras. It also has a crisp and bright visual display and head phone jack which makes this a necessity when traveling with kids.
