The Polaroid kids tablet has been named a CES (News - Alert) Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Tablets, E-Readers & Mobile Computing product category.

"The kids tablet is no exception. It epitomizes the Polaroid brand personality and brings together a host of features that will delight kids and parents alike."

Fun and Games

Included are a customized suite of apps like Kids Cam, Music Studio and Draw that encourage children to develop creative capabilities, and show off their creative side to friends and family members with videos, pictures and songs. The tablet also features Kids Vids, an app that allows children to stream safe and filtered videos for all age groups and Free Play, a simple & unique way to display all the free games/apps available for download from the kid-friendly App Shop.


Equipped with innovative side and rear bumpers to help protect the tablet from accidental bumps as well as built-in parental controls and a safe web browser that are quick and easy to set up, the tablet is designed to provide a safe interactive experience. Also included is the exclusive App Shop which is loaded with a variety of free and paid kid-friendly apps.

Reading options for children of all ages!

The Polaroid kids tablet is designed to make learning fun. It comes preloaded with a selection of top-rated interactive children's books, as well as NOOK for Android from Barnes and Noble. The tablet includes award-winning Dr. Seuss™ and Smithsonian interactive books which offer kids three different ways to read - "Read to me" where you listen to the book with the words highlighted, "Read it myself" where you read the book in its traditional form, and "Auto-Play" where the book plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning the pages.

People can expect to see new Polaroid products that will deliver the fun, instant gratification and value that the brand has long stood.
