May The Force be with your tablet. Today, Fuhu, the creator of the award-winning nabi® tablet — the world’s first Android tablet built just for kids — and the foremost innovator in technology for kids and their families, has released The Force Star Wars™ accessory bundle with the Collector’s Edition nabi tablet. The Force Star Wars™ accessory bundle enables the next generation of Star Wars fans to showcase their fandom across the ultimate next generation kids’ tech product: the nabi tablet. The accessory bundle will feature an array of physical and digital products and experiences for kids to fully customize their nabi tablet in Star Wars style.
Two very special The Force Star Wars accessory bundles will duel it out at retail — a “Light Side” version and a “Dark Side” version – each equipped with authentic sound effects and themed wallpapers to customize kids’ on screen experience, as well as tablet stickers and themed bumpers to personalize the exterior of the tablet. The Star Wars Light Side accessory bundle will first be available at Best Buy and will feature a “Jedi-worthy” glow-in-the-dark Drop Safe® bumper as well as an R2-D2 frame and sticker wrap. Meanwhile theStar Wars Dark Side bundle, available widely at retailers including Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us and nabiShop.com, will include a menacing Vader-like black bumper and striking Stormtrooper frame and exterior sticker wrap to show allegiance to the Dark Side.
Both will come packaged with a Collector’s Edition nabi 7″ tablet, featuring a new sleek design and containing the latest Android OS with Fuhu’s groundbreaking Blue Morpho OS overlay — including more than 400 kid-safe, parent-approved features and digital experiences. Each tablet will be individually stamped with a holographic mark identifying it as one of a finite number of tablets as part of the Star Wars bundle from Fuhu. The Force Star Wars™ accessory bundle with the Collector’s Edition nabi tablet will carry a MSRP of $169.99.
“The special Star Wars accessory bundles and the Collector’s Edition nabi tablets have been designed in line with Fuhu’s vision of providing enriching experiences for kids that surprise and delight,” said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu. “STAR WARS: The Force Awakenswill undoubtedly ignite the next generation of Star Wars fans, and The Force Star Wars bundles will allow kids to express their love of all things Star Wars in a very tangible way, all contained in a tablet that is both kid-friendly and parent-approved.”
The Force Star Wars accessory bundles provide a very special way for kids to bring a little bit of The Force into their everyday lives. Both packages include access to download a digital suite of authentic Star Wars visuals and sound effects from the Star Wars movie franchise to customize the on screen experience. These include:
- 10 signature sound effects that punctuate distinct tablet actions, including:
- R2-D2 greets you with his singsong response when you hit the home button.
- Need to unlock your screen or check out your apps? Prepare for lightsaber combat!
- If blasters are your thing, you’ll get an earful when you slide between screens.
- Need to activate your alarm functions: get ready for Chewie’s signature “Rrrooaarrggh”.
- Whether you’re a young Padawan or a Sith Lord in training, Fuhu has awesome wallpapers to trick out its Collector’s Edition nabi tablet, including:
- A massive armada of X-Wing Fighters in battle formation
- A close-up of the dome of everyone’s favorite droid, R2-D2
