Huawei has today announced the HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition, designed with children’s education in mind. Available in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants, this latest addition to the HUAWEI MatePad T Series comprises beautiful tablets that are specifically designed for children aged 3-8 years old. They feature a bright and colourful kids case, easy to use stylus pen and the Kids Corner default app that is pre-loaded with a wide range of child-friendly content.
Kids Corner packed with Rich Educational Content
The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition comes pre-installed with a wealth of rich educational content, making it the perfect tablet companion for children as they grow. Kids Corner was specifically created to reassure parents that their kids will be safe while using the tablet. Kids Corner is like a treasure chest that allows children to record funny and interesting moments, draw their imagination on a canvas and record the stories and jokes they tell. Kids Corner supports Kids Painting, Recorder, Camera, and other features, offering a reliable and secure platform for kids to learn and play.
Huawei also has partnered with Azoomee, an award-winning app for kids featuring hundreds of action-packed games, inspiring TV shows and fun DIY crafts. Every MatePad T kids edition will come with a one-year free subscription to Azoomee’s huge collection of exciting and educational content. Kids and parents will have access to Azoomee’s range of award-winning videos, including Alvin and the Chipmunks, Operation Ouch and the Hippos Family, as well as its signature games such as the Oomee Teeth and Oomee Lake, in addition to a fun personalized avatar creator – the Oomee Maker, a leading educational developer creating content for children. The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition, therefore, comes with a free one-year membership to Azoomee.
The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition comes with a beautiful kids case made from environmentally safe silicone, offering all-around protection for both the device and the child. Specially designed for kids, the tablet consists of a bright blue shell and green grips, and is comfortable and easy to hold for small hands. The tablet also features a curved back, giving kids a rounded grip.
Ultra-slim bezels result in an immersive visual experience, with a bright blue stylus pen to match your child’s inquisitive mind. The stylus pen offers a more interactive experience for kids by enabling them to draw finer pictures on the tablet, as well as to enjoy themselves to the fullest when playing touchscreen games. Both the Kids case and the stylus pen meet the European Standards on the Safety of Toys and pass the Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) requirements, giving parents confidence in the safety of the products.
Parental Assistant and Safety Features
The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition boasts numerous safety features, giving parents the ultimate peace of mind. Parents can manage time spent, apps used, and other viewable content on the Kids Corner, allowing them to set multiple designated time limit intervals throughout the day. For example, parents can set it so that their child can use the tablet for a maximum of 20 minutes after school between 5 pm to 6 pm, or after dinner between 7 pm and 9 pm. They can also apply different settings for the weekday versus the weekend so that the tablet brings the perfect balance between study and play. In the Kid’s Profile, parents can also gain access to their children’s usage records, allowing them to log their children’s usage time and see the apps used over any given period.
Multi-layered eye protection
The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition leverages the power of technology to protect children’s eyesight. A built-in colour adjustment module intelligently adjusts the content on the display, offering a discrete eye protection mode that has passed the TÜV Rheinland low blue light certification. With help from an ambient light sensor, the tablet also enables multi-layered eye protection for your child’s eyes.
Huawei tablets are equipped with a built-in gravity sensor that can determine whether the user is lying flat, with prompts to encourage them to adjust their posture accordingly. There is even an algorithm that detects when the tablet is shaking (such as when the user is using the tablet while walking or in a car), which can remind your child to use it in a stable state, therefore developing better eye habits. Furthermore, when eBook mode is enabled, the tablet automatically adjusts the contrast, brightness, sharpness, saturation, colour temperature, grayscale and other parameters on the display to offer a quality reading experience that closely resembles that of reading a physical book. The Bumpy Road Alerts, Posture Alerts, eBook mode and more can all be toggled on and off in Kids Corner.
Estelle Lloyd, co-founder and COO of Azoomee, commented: “Over the last year, parents have become increasingly aware of the vital role technology plays in their children’s education. We are delighted to partner with Huawei to make their tablets even more attractive to parents by offering free access to premium kids’ content in the Azoomee app. Through this partnership, millions more families will have access to engaging educational games, TV shows and activities which inspire kids to think outside the box, explore and discover new things.”
