MeeGenius Partners with Fuhu Inc. to Deliver Premium Educational Content Via the Brand New Nabi Tablet
NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — MeeGenius Inc., the world’s largest enhanced digital library for kids, today announced a partnership with Fuhu Inc. to provide its library of children’s books on the Nabi tablet, the world’s first full-featured Android tablet and platform made especially for kids.
“We’re very excited by this partnership, fostering a life-long love of reading from a young age is MeeGenius’ core mission,” said MeeGenius co-founder and CEO Wandy Hoh. “Providing MeeGenius’ educational entertainment on this new device means more kids and parents reading together,” continued Hoh.
Founded in 2010, MeeGenius is the largest virtual library for enhanced children’s books. Available as a website and an application, MeeGenius works across all platforms offering the largest selection of classic children’s stories anywhere. All titles come with enhancements such as read-along word highlighting, audio playback and personalization.
“As a tablet and platform made especially for kids, an ebook library is an essential part of the Nabi experience,” said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu. “MeeGenius’ extensive catalog of children’s books from award-winning authors, featuring word highlighting and audio playback, makes it a great solution for children of all ages,” he concluded.
In addition to the MeeGenius learn-to-read content, the Nabi tablet is designed to be everything you want it to be – a game console, a movie theater, a university, a library and an art studio. In addition, the Nabi tablet grows with your child as the apps and games children can enjoy can advance with age and experience.
“Early childhood experts agree that technology such as read-along word highlighting not only enhances the reading experience, but also makes learning to read much easier for early readers,” continued Hoh. “That is why it is great for MeeGenius to be a part of this brand new device that is designed especially for kids,” she concluded.
The Nabi tablet from Fuhu is available for pre-order at Toysrus.com and comes complete with access to the entire MeeGenius kids library, which is available in the App Store, the Android Market and http://www.meegenius.com/.
