ARCHOS is jumping into the kids tablet game with the release of the 7-inch Child Pad. The new slate designed for youngsters is loaded up with an Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 theme, but we’re more interested in a set of specs that doesn’t look half bad for a device of the Child Pad’s class. The tablet features a 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and WiFi connectivity. Better than that, it runs Ice Cream Sandwich.

ARCHOS is pre-loading the tablet with plenty of apps and games tailored to kids, including Angry Birds along with more educational fare. Additional titles can be downloaded from a curated list available through the AppsLib market. Plenty of Chipmunk related content and parental control software is also included.

The Archos Child Pad is available immediately for $129.99 through a dedicated web site. It will head to other retailers soon.
