GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In less than two years, School Zone's Little Scholar educational tablet has become a trailblazer in the preschool tablet marketplace, specializing in providing content that focuses on the essential learning skills that young kids will need later in the classroom. School Zone, one of the world's renowned publishers of kids' education tools and resources, launched the tablet to rave reviews in the media as well as numerous awards throughout the toy and educational industries.
For decades, the company has provided educational resources and tools for kids ages 3-9 years old. In 2014, the company identified the new ways in which kids of today are learning and, as a result, shifted much of its resources to developing the Little Scholar tablet. While its traditional line of materials continues to be extremely successful, entering the mobile tablet space was an endeavor the company knew it had to undertake.
"What makes Little Scholar better than the competition and the best value in the industry is not only the fact that our tablet has an 8" display area, making the screen 45% larger than typical 7" kids tablets, but that it also has an incredible amount of preloaded educational content. It takes about 70 hours for a child to just explore all the apps, videos, books and music created specifically for the tablet by our creative studio," said Jonathan Hoffman, CEO of School Zone Publishing. "Let me put it another way. When we look at our key competitors, our preloaded curriculum equates to somewhere between 200% and 500% more content, and ours covers the essential reading and math skills kids need for future success. Little Scholar, hands down, gives kids a better learning experience. If a child played Little Scholar for three hours a day, he or she would accomplish 1,000 hours of reading and math skill practice a year! These statistics are astonishing to me as a parent."
Just in time for the holiday season, Little Scholar is now available at Walmart.com, Toys "R" Us stores and Toysrus.com, Meijer stores and more. MSRP $129.99.
