With 4GB onboard storage, the Camelio Mini serves as a music player, video viewer, gaming system and more in a compact, durable form factor at a very affordable price--just $79.99 MSRP. Featuring a rear-facing camera and 5+ hours of battery life, Camelio is the perfect tablet for young children, for on-the-go play and for older kids who aren't quite ready for a smartphone.

The Camelio Mini hits store shelves this spring, with additional Personality Packs featuring Nickelodeon characters coming soon.
