Get the HOTTEST Toy this season at Verizon Wireless!

gizmotabForget that hatching toy or that fruity tablet! The hottest gift this season for your little one is going to be the all new GizmoTab! Part of the Gizmo line of kids products available exclusively at Verizon, it dropped yesterday into stores but we got a chance to get our hands on it a few days earlier! I am already a huge fan of the Gizmo products, having 2 of the GizmoGadget phones for my kids. I mean, it was sheer brilliance! So I was chopping on bits to tell you all about the GizmoTab, but I really wanted to put it through the ringer aka my kids.

The VERDICT? It’s AWESOME!

My kids have been tearing each other apart for their time with the GizmoTab! I mean they can’t get enough of it! All THREE kids, ages 3, 6 and 9 (while aged out of the kids interface, still loves it!)… so you know it’s a spread as far as interest goes, and they all LOVE it!

Let’s get into the nitty gritty.

SPECS:

  • 16GB Android Tablet at it’s core but can
  • expand with microSD port
  • 8″ Full HD display
  • Super fast and efficient 1.5 GHz octa-core processor with
  • 3GB RAM
  • 8MP rear-facing and 5MP front camera
  1. It comes preloaded with the GizmoTab interface which allows for up to 3 child profiles and loads of parental control features. Completely childproof with a pre-installed bumper for those drops and bumps. Kids can download over 300 educational and fun games with a paid subscription.

WHAT WE LOVED:

  • In addition to the 300+ educational curated games available you can also install any app from Google Play and designate which child profile has access to these other apps from within the GizmoTab interface (ie., Clash of Clans, Facebook, Instagram)
  • Expandable memory. While it isn’t clear exactly how much it can expand to, I popped in a 64GB microSD and it’s working great!
  • gtabThe Parental Controls! They really thought of everything. From personal pins for each child’s profile if desired to setting how many hours per day a child can use the GizmoTab. Games are classified as play or education and you have the option of rewarding educational game play with “PLAY” game time. It also keeps track of how much learning time and play time for the week is and lets you choose the appropriate learning level for your child.
  • It’s a fully functioning Android tablet with DATA service! Which means after entering a pre-selected pin, you can exit to the Android device and use it as your own! On the GO!

THE COST:

Probably the craziest thing is how cheap it is! There are 3 options:

  • $10.41/on a monthly device payment plan
  • $79.99 with a 2-year contract, there is NO line access fee, simply uses your existing data plan
  • $249.99 to buy it outright without any service, only wifi and limited apps available.

Also available, and totally worth every penny is the GizmoTab Kids Case ($34.99) which allows you to prop up the GizmoTab and comes with a chunky stylus for your child! Check out the GizmoTab in store or online at VerizonWireless.com!
