The EE Robin Tablet is a new device in the everlasting trend of Tablets built specifically for kids of ages 0 – 7 with fantastic features for little hands and young minds.
The Robin Tablet at its core functionally identical to a standard issue tablet device which runs the Android OS however, you are able to set up two separate types of accounts – A parent and child account. The difference between these is quite profound, with the Parent account having a modern, sleek UI that is easy to navigate and has functionality at it’s core. whereas, the child account has a game focused layout which allows easy access to your child’s favourite apps through its selection of categories which divide the library of apps you can download through the Play Store into easy to digest areas as to not confuse young minds.
Furthermore, the EE Robin Tablet comes preloaded with a wide selection of games and apps such as subway surfer, Hello Kitty Cafe and many more for all ages and genders! Even Better, if you decide you do not like any of the pre-downloaded games you can easily delete them for more space on the pre-built 16GB SD card included with the Device!
Continuing, the EE Robin Tablet comes pre-built with one special app only accessible on the Parent account, known as Kurio GENIUS, which allows you to manage the access to features your child has on the tablet! For example, using this app you can filter what content can be restricted, such as anything above the child’s watching age (eg: 0-7 years…), access to the google play store and google accounts in general, which hours the child is allowed to use it between and many more, such as a daily play time limit and app manager. This allows the parent to monitor what the child can and cannot do and keep the internet safe for the young minds who enter there.
Finally, I shall disclose the information on how to get this wonderful piece of Tech! There is currently one way to get this piece of machinery and that is to purchase a plan of a minimum 24 months from EE, specifically a 4GEE essentials, 4GEE, or Max plan, which each cost a different amount being £17, £19.50 or £22 a month with a £30.00 upfront charge, which includes 2GB of data, 10GB of data or 20GB of data respectively. As stated earlier, these plans last a minimum of 24 months, or 2 years to be precise and as such purchases should be done with conviction. Also of note, is that each of these comes with a free limited time membership to the service known as Hopster (or as I call it, Netflix for Kids), which contains a ridiculous number of the most popular shows for children at the moment such as Bob the Builder, 64 Zoo Lane and Thomas and Friends. The 4GEE Essentials plan comes with 3 months of this service with a continued subscription fee of £3.99 a month and the 4GEE and Max plan each come with a whopping 24-month membership included (same end of membership costs apply)! Do make sure, however, to cancel the membership before the end date as if you have a credit or debit card already saved onto the device, it may automatically pay for another month at the end of it’s time.
In conclusion, the EE Robin Tablet is greatly designed, comfortable to use and affordable item useful for both Adults and Children alike. It comes with specially made motion based games and a special case with a handle to carry it with and is easy to set up and get going! Word of warning, when it comes out of the box it will have instructions as to insert the SD card but when you take it off of the front of the tablet, the tablet will feel quite rough. To fix this, wipe it down with a lightly soaked towel and quickly dry it down (Works because it’s waterproof!) and it becomes phenomenally comfortable and quick to use.
