App developer FUHU, known for their kid-friendly Fooz Kids edutainment applications, has teamed up with Toys R Us to offer an affordable Android tablet for children (and adults). The Nabi Tablet is a fun and educational tablet featuring a custom “kiddie” user interface on top of Android that allows for kids to browse the web, watch videos, read books and of course — get their edumacation on. That’s not all. The tablet can also be password unlocked by a parent to allow for a more traditional “grownup” Android experience.

As an Android parent, the first question you’re likely asking yourself is, “What are the specs on that thing?” Surprisingly, the Nabi Tablet comes with a 7-inch, 800×480 resolution display, 533MHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor with PowerVR SGX530 GPU for 3D gaming, 4GB of internal storage and a 3,000mAh battery for up to 5 hours of non-stop gaming. The kiddie tab also comes equipped with Wi-Fi, front facing camera and can playback video at 1080p HD (excessive, but cool none-the-less).

Along with the custom UI, the Nabi Tablet also comes with it’s own custom Nabi App Store featuring over 500 apps for your child to download and lose themselves in. The Nabi tab is also pre-loaded with a Design Studio portal, featuring 30 creative apps for drawing/painting and another 30 e-book apps for children. If you’re more interested in the learning part of the Nabi tablet, it also has access to Fooz Kids University, FUHU’s site featuring over 22,000 state standardized math skills from grades pre-kindergarten all the way up to fifth grade.

The Nabi Tablet can be pre-ordered right now from Toys R Us for $200 with an estimated ship date of December 1st. Just in time for the holidays. Any of our readers have any kids that have been exceptionally good this year? Will the Nabi Tablet make its way under your tree this year?
