EXECUTIVE QUOTES:
Fuhu CEO Jim Mitchell:
"We created Nabi as parents with young kids we'd relinquished our iPads to. We wanted them to have engaging experiences we didn't need to sit there and monitor, without dumbing down the tablet experience and having our kids still ask to use ours. We took everything kids wanted to do on an iPad and put it on Nabi in a purely kid-centric way."

Fuhu Founder & President Robb Fujioka: "As a full-featured Android tablet, Nabi has the core features you think about for a tablet -- touch-screen, WiFi, app store, gaming, movies, books -- but within a kiddified experience designed specifically for kids. We've taken our expertise at software and combined it with the best in the business to give kids a unique and engaging tablet."

Troy Peterson, Vice President, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Toys"R"Us, U.S.: "As part of the expansion of our electronics department, we're constantly introducing the newest gadgets for kids and parents. We're excited to be the exclusive retail partner for both the Nabi tablet and Nabi accessories, and we believe they will be a hit with our customers who are looking for a tablet geared specifically toward kids."
