The children’s tech company Pebble Gear has just launched a range of Disney-licensed tablets and accessories for three to eight-year-olds in the US.
Pebble Gear is an International tech company whose goal is to provide kids with the tools to safely take their first steps into technology.
Through its licensing deal with Disney, Pebble Gear has created an innovative kids’ tablet specifically designed to allow children to access digital content safely and securely.
The Pebble Gear Kids’ Tablet provides access to kid-friendly gaming and educational content, free of any in-app purchases, unwanted pop-ups, or hidden fees, and comes with full access to extensive parental controls at no additional cost. The tablet also includes a free year of access to kid-safe versions of more than 500 of the most popular kids’ apps via the proprietary GameStore Junior application, allowing kids and families to explore the world of available digital content while offering parents complete peace-of-mind.
After the initial 12-months, unlimited prepaid access to GameStore Junior is available at $4.99 for one month, $12.99 for three, or $39.99 for a year.
“There is a genuine concern for many parents in this new digital world of trying to find a balance between allowing their kids access to digital content for fun and education whilst ensuring their safety,” said Mike Steup, CEO of Pebble Gear’s parent company the snakebyte | GROUP. “The specifically developed and curated content within the closed architecture of the Pebble Gear tablet overcomes many of those fears for parents and kids alike.”
Following initial successes in international markets, Pebble Gear launched the range of 7” Android tablets in the United States this fall, offering fans access to intricately-themed, immersive environments featuring their favorite characters from Disney’s Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Friends, and Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story and Cars franchises. The tablets also come packaged in their own unique and theme-matching protective bumper case, ensuring security both inside and out.
The Pebble Gear Kids’ Tablets have a recommended retail price of $99.99 and are available for purchase from Target and on www.pebblegear.com.
