The Nabi 2 is the successor to Fuhu’s popular Nabi tablet. While the Nabi 2 is child-oriented, Fuhu decided to up the specs considerably, and performance-wise it is on-par with Google’s own Nexus 7 tablet. It has a 7″ capacitive screen with 1024×600 resolution. The Leap Pad Explorer 2 features a 5″ resistive screen with 480×272 resolution.
- Very robustly designed.
- Powerful enough to compare well with adult tablets.
- Compatible with both Mac and PC.
- Decent battery life.
- A little on the expensive side for a child’s toy.
- The Nabi Cloud ( past 2GB), Spinlets+ TV and other services cost money, and are subscription based. There’s also other opportunities for recurring costs, such as purchasing coins to reward to your children in exchange or completing chores. Some parents will like the idea of this, but other parents may not like the idea of being compelled to keep spending and regard them as an expensive gimmick. It has to be said though that they are all optional.
