In a world that is thriving technologically and where parents are more invested in educational gadgets than ever, the industry of learning devices is booming. From handheld technology to computers, there are new educational breakthroughs happening every couple of months it seems and more often than not, you’ll see families investing in these innovative learning systems for their little ones.
When I was a child, we relied on old-fashioned methods such as flash cards, Hooked on Phonics, etc. to boost our academic standing and strengthen our learning skills. As a traditionalist at heart, it took a little bit of time for me to give these new tech gadgets a chance but gradually I’ve opened my mind to them and slowly started integrating them into the lives of my children. I do manage their screen time carefully, preferring to keep it to a 30 minute minimum during the week and an hour occasionally on weekends.
The results didn’t happen right away but allowing my kids to download educational apps has definitely produced great results, which is why when I was contacted by Tanoshi to see if I wanted to review their brand-new educational, age appropriate computer, I accepted happily. The creative minds behind these handheld computers wanted learning to be fun, not a chore, and made it their main focus to craft products that not only teach but provide unlimited entertainment for children under the age of 13.
Each Tanoshi computer is built with a 10.1 inch HD touchscreen for easy navigation, dual stereo speakers to make following along with directions easy and is pre-loaded with tons of educational apps. With it’s detachable keyboard, little ones can alternate between using the touchscreen for games and the keyboard for things like spelling and word practice. It even features a 2MP front camera and 5MP rear camera for silly selfies as well as creating fun videos. Tanoshi products are the ideal balance between being educational and fun!
One of my favorite features about a lot of today’s electronics, Tanoshi especially, is that they have built in parental controls. As a company, Tanoshi is very aware of the security issues surrounding the internet and have taken steps to ensure that children are protected through parental controls that allow for more structured screen time. Not only can you control which apps and websites your child can visit but you can also set the amount of screen time they have, control access to downloading new apps or restricting unauthorized downloads.
While there are a lot of different learning options on the market for young children these days, Tanoshi is the first to release a truly age-appropriate product for children up to the age of 13, rather than catering to a much younger audience. Not only are these products age appropriate but they also come with apps that teach coding, a skill that is fast becoming popular with younger audiences, math skills, research, geography, etc. so your child can get a fuller range of education in more areas than just apps for amusement.
