I bought this on black friday as a birthday gift for my son. After giving it to him I find the viewing angles on the screen suck, and the battery life is horrendous. Absolutely horrid. I have a nexus 7 and get days worth of battery life, my daughter's kindle fire gets great battery life too. Honestly, if you have apps bought in the play store ecoshpere that you want to re-use then this tablet isn't for you. I love the tegra 3 processor in my transformer prime and Nexus 7. I feel like they put a ferrari motor in a yugo with this product. Also.. last thing about this awful product. It uses a proprietary charger that is designed to keep you from using a regular micro USB charger. In this day and age I feel that is pretty deplorable, especially for a niche product. I will be returning my Nabi and buying my son a Nexus 7 and otterbox case. Spend your money on something else besides this product. Please!!

Awesome. Love having a tablet for my son where I know if he wanders off into a not-kid-friendly website, or attempts to purchase a game from the Play store... it will ask for my password.

This thing is Chinese Junk, buy a tablet and load educational apps, stay away from the Nabi. If you do have one and something happens to it, good luck getting any kind of support.

We bought the Nabi 2 for our 7 year old daughter almost 2 years ago. We're on our second one. The first one she left on the floor in my bedroom and I stepped on it in the middle of the night cracking the internal screen. We still had warranty but I would have to pay $80 +shipping to get it fixed. So we chose to just get her a new one.

At first the Nabi 2 was awesome. She loved the games. As a parent I loved the parental controls. Then she found the loop hole into accessing the app stores. If a child clicks on in game ads it will take them to the app store. Nabi's app store sucks. It doesn't have any worthy apps on it. So we had to download Amazon and Google Play. A lot of the Google play store apps do not work properly on this tablet. I think I downloaded maybe 7 apps before the tablet started running out of memory. So we bought her a 8BG SD card. Which come to find out is useless because you can not transfer apps to it, only pictures and videos. The Nabi customer service told me that at this time its not possible.The whole comes with 8GB is a JOKE. Because thats what it has before Fuhu themselves put apps on it. So at the time of purchase it really only has 4GB. My daughter was getting frustrated at not being able to have many games on it. So we decided to delete a good portion of the pre-installed crap that was on it.

Now the BIGGEST problem we've had with this tablet and what makes me ever regret buying this piece of crap is the fact that I've had to do a hard master reset 3 times (looking at the 4th time now because the same problem happened again) is that it looses its WIFI ability. For some reason the wifi just stops working. We'll click the "connect to wifi button" and nothing happens. Theres no way to connect to one at all anymore. The only way to fix this (via the customer service agents and the FB page) is to do the reset. Which is just a HUUUUGE pain in the bum bum. After resetting you have to go through and delete all the apps you deleted to make more memory. Then go to all the app stores and redownload all the apps.

I just really wish I would of researched this tablet beforehand. If you go to the Facebook page, switch the wall setting to "posts by others". You'll see the countless other people who are having problems repeatedly with this tablet. I tell anyone I know thats even thinking about buying this tablet for the child to save their money and get another one. Me and my fiance are just going to trade the Nabi 2 in on here and use the credit to buy her one she can actually enjoy!SAVE

Difficult to set up, wifi works intermittently if at all, poor app store interface, no customer support on weekends, instructions that do not match what is on the screen. Very poor execution of a pretty good idea. Same problems on two devices... the list goes on and on

I received the Nabi for my child and I was excited!! Finally I can get my Ipad back is what I thought. I turned it on as soon as I took it out the box went through the initail setup video, browsed through it for about 10 minutes and then I turned it off to charge it. Once I got it home to show her father it would not turn on!!! The battery indicator light turns green. According to the manual that means that it is fully charged. When I try to turn it on the Nabi screen displays for a second and then the screen shows a battery on the front like it needs charging?!?!

At the initial turn on I was impressed. I was haapy that my child was getting a tablet, and now that I can not even get this thing to turn on I am getting more and more annoyed. I have emailed customer service and have not gotten an answer back and I wrote on the FB page. By the way was the most helpful and and they were quick with the answers. Hopefully Customer support gets back to me because time is ticking and I leave overseas.

Ugh.
Customer service is a nightmare.
Device is not intuitive.
Bumper pulls away from tablet easily.
Demo it in person before you sink money into it.

I reviewed many tablets before buying. I chose three of these for 3 of my children. We also purchased 2 kindle fires for 2 of my other children and have 3 older kids that have ipad minis. So we have used and reviewed quite a few tablets. These nabi tablets are wonderful. They are not apple products but they are great for a first time kids tablets. They are very easy to set up and the parental controls are quick to set up and easy to understand. There are one or two drawbacks. It is not as easy to download as apple products. It does take a few steps to download games from amazon app store. First download game, then add to kids mode, then add to the kids home page. But that is about the only downside. I love the chore list and the time app that is all included, my 6 year old did find out she could push the home button 5 or 6 times, after the nabi went to "sleep" for the night and it goes back to the kids homepage. But only for a few minutes then it shuts back down in sleep mode. I am sure that will be something Nabi will fix, My kids love their Nabi's and I have been able to download all their favorite games, angry birds, minecraft, candy crush and many more. And I love that all the nabi's are linked to my amazon app store so I only have to buy a game once and I can put it on all 3 nabi's!

We bought three Nabi 2 tablets a year ago for Christmas presents. One tablet was dropped accidently, screen shattered and will not work. Another tablet somehow kept reverting back to parent mode, our 11 year old was able to access inappropriate sites. Last week, our 8 year old daughter was able to see photos on her nabi on one of our iPad accounts! Last year one of the nabi's in child safe mode kept popping up with naked women in various poses. This morning our daughter decided to use one of the children apps that comes with the nabi. Somehow she was able to go through a "back door" on this app and get to google. A search from her somehow led to some seriously inappropriate porn websites. For real? Does this company not test these things! Our children are no longer allowed to use their tablets and we are now trying to field questions from our 4 year old daughter as to why that man in the picture was choking that woman during a lewd act. We are furious! Wish I could give this no stars.

I bought this tablet for our 5 year old son for Christmas. It seemed like a great idea, durable, and a way to keep him off of my Kindle. We had issues from the start with it. When we tried to call customer support, we could never get a hold of anyone. I would authorize apps for download and put in my credit card information, only to never have anything download. I checked all of the settings multiple times, but it kept telling me to contact customer support. The charging port stopped working correctly after only a few weeks (no drops or issues on this end), but again, there was no way to contact customer support. My son stopped using it after about a month because we couldn't get the issues figured out and still couldn't get a hold of anyone to help us with it.

The idea is great and I know the screen was at least durable. We loved that it had a "bumper" type protector on it. I think, however, that the money would be better spent on a different product.
