Do you know what kids want these days for holiday gifts? Tablets! Instead of lavishing on grown-up tablets from Asus, Samsung and others for the little ones at home, you might want to consider Ematic’s kid-friendly tablet offering, the FunTab.

The Ematic FunTab is an affordable Android 4.0 tablet that’s designed specifically for kids. While the FunTab’s colorful exterior will have no problem attracting their attention, it’ll be the tablet’s $119 price tag that attracts yours.

The fun-filled tablet comes preloaded with Zoodles Kid Mode interface that allows parents to customize the content on the FunTab. In addition to several educational apps and games, it also ships with popular games like Angry Birds, Where’s My Water, Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja, and plenty more.

Although it’s meant for the young ones, the Ematic FunTab doesn’t come with a kiddy sheet of specs. It boasts a 7-inch multi-touch display with 800 x 480 resolution, 1.2GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD support (up to 32GB), two cameras (front and back), WiFi b/g/n, and a battery that should be good for a 5-hour continuous playtime.

The FunTab comes in blue/green and pink/purple colors, and you should be able to get it from Walmart stores.

    I have a nabi 2 for my 6yr old & love it but looking to purchase cheaper for my 3yr old cant find many reviews on this. If it is a piece of junk guess rather spend the money on the nabi. Will take any help thanks! Also can I put Netflix on this for her?

      No Netflix won’t work on it, neither does the play store, best way to get apps on it is to side load them. It has no problems playing most games you throw at it though.
