Kids of above 2 or 3 years age would today prefer a tablet computer rather than a toy ! And parents would like to give them tablets so that the iPads, galaxy tablets and iPhones owned by parents are safe. With a price tag of below Rs 10,000 these tablets do not make a dent in the parents’ finances.

Surveys have revealed that digital learning tools positively impact kids by developing minds, teaching new concepts, enhancing intellectual capabilities and improving behaviour.
