Fuhu Introduces nabi Time Controls, World's First Character Based Time Management Solution to Guide Children's Tablet Usage

nabi Comes to Life as an Innovative Tool to Help Parents Manage and Track Children's Screen Time

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2013) - Fuhu, Inc., creator of the award winning nabi® tablet (www.nabitablet.com), announced today the release of nabi Time Controls™, a patent pending property exclusive to nabi tablets. nabi Time Controls takes a unique approach to bringing the nabi tablet to life as a friendly character to help parents manage their children's use of the tablet by setting time limits and provide parents insight into children's usage.

nabi Time Controls is a tool that adds invaluable experience for both children and parents. It helps parents manage children's screen time by setting time limits and enforces them through a character that interacts with children through animation to let them know their time is up. nabi Time Controls has a feature that allow parents to gain insight to what their children are doing on the tablet and for how long. Most importantly, nabi Time Controls encourages children to learn and earn by rewarding time spent on educational apps with more playtime on their favorite apps and games.

"We are invested in innovative solutions that empower children with enriching experiences in learn, play and grow," said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu. "nabi is more than just a tablet to families; it is a companion that instills motivation and inspiration in children. We developed a friendly character as a management tool to help parents guide children in their tablet usage while making it fun and engaging for children."

Highlights include:

  • nabi as a Character: nabi comes to life as an animated friend that interacts with children and enforces time limits.

  • Set Time Limits: Limit how much time children spend on their nabi tablet, individual apps or group of apps by setting time limits as well as "wake" and "sleep" time.

  • Tracking and Reporting: Get real-time tracking and reporting of total tablet usage time as well as individual app usage. Monitor which apps and games children are spending the most time on and manage time limits.

  • Time Rewards: Time Rewards encourages children to maximize the time they spend on educational apps by rewarding them with more nabi time or time with their favorite apps and games.

nabi Time Controls will be available for nabi 2 free of charge through Over-The-Air (OTA) update on September 3, 2013. It will also be available on nabi Jr. later this year.
