It used to be that tech offerings were made only for adults. Well, not anymore. Today, there are tablets, headphones and more that are made specifically for kids.
Ready to introduce the special kids in your life to some tech gadgets of their own? Then, check out these kid-friendly offerings available from Verizon:
Make learning fun with Ellipsis® Kids tablet
Designed specifically for the younger set, the Verizon-exclusive Ellipsis® Kids tablet is built kid-tough with a removable bumper so it can handle the occasional drop or bump. This tablet is a win-win for child and parent. Your youngster will love playing an array of learning games and watching educational videos in Zoodles® Kid Mode®. Mom and Dad will be confident knowing the content was hand-picked by Zoodles’ education experts. A Parent Dashboard lets you keep an eye on the kids as they play and learn. The tablet is also powered by fast Verizon 4G LTE*.
To take it to the next level, add on the brightly colored Kids Case for the Ellipsis® Tablet (sold separately) with easy-carry handle. The case protects against the rigors of daily use in little hands. The handle makes it easy for kids to carry their tablet wherever they go, but also doubles as a kickstand to prop up the tablet when they’re watching their favorite shows or engaged in a fun on-screen game.
Watch out for the Mouse in the house
Another fun way to offer tablet protection to the Ellipsis Kids tablet is with a Folio Case featuring the likeness of a either very popular boy cartoon mouse or girl cartoon mouse. (The boy cartoon mouse is featured on a white case, while the girl cartoon mouse is embossed on an elegant red version. Each sold separately). Whichever you choose, these cases offer a light-hearted approach to serious tablet protection. Multiple position angles allow for comfortable typing and web browsing. Precision cutouts provide easy access to the Ellipsis camera as well as all ports and buttons.
Stay in touch with GizmoGadget™ and GizmoPal® 2 by LG
Stay in touch with your little one even when you’re not physically with them. The GizmoPal® 2 by LG and GizmoGadget™, which are both wristwatch-like wearables, provide peace of mind for parents, and are fun for the kids, too.
Both versions let you stay in touch with your child with two-way voice calling. Simply call them to say "hi" or find out how they're doing while out with Grandma. When you need to know the location of your child, just glance at your phone to locate the wearable. Or, get notifications if your child crosses set GPS boundaries.
Also water-resistant**, both GizmoPal 2 and GizmoGadget are not afraid of a little water. Result: no need to worry if your child splashes in a puddle or has a water balloon fight while wearing these devices.
A step up from GizmoPal2, GizmoGadget has a dedicated button for one-touch call answering and message sending, and a bright 1.3-inch touchscreen that can be customized with themes and text messaging capability. Send brief text messages from your smartphone to GizmoGadget. A notification sound and animation plays when the message arrives. You can also use the GizmoGadget to help keep your child physically active. For example, use it to count steps or track how many jumps were completed while jumping rope.
To turn your smartphone into mission control for either of the devices, just download the GizmoHub™ app. Then, use the app to program up to four contacts to GizmoPal 2 and up to 10 contacts for GizmoGadget. The app also lets you change the LCD theme and customize preset messages for GizmoGadget, and change fun sounds and volume or check battery life for either device.
There are also ways to switch up the look of your child's wearable device. Choose an interchangeable wrist band – available in four fun colors - to best fit your child’s preference or match his or her outfit. Or, opt for a 12-pack of decals in different designs and colors (GizmoPal 2 only).
Let kids rock their own style
If music is your child’s passion, then check out the KidzSafe Girls DIY Headphones and KidzSafe Boys DIY Headphones. Perfect for personal listening during a family roadtrip or while hanging out in their room. The headphones come with 50+ designer stickers, 4 colorful ear pads and 2 matching cords and are ready to be personalized. An included accessories bag, also ready to be customized, helps keep everything in one place.
Audiologist recommended, the headphones are equipped with custom 40mm drivers and volume limitations that keep sound below 85 dB so little ears are protected. A fully adjustable, leatherette headband enables comfortable listening.
