More and more kids are gravitating to new technology at a younger age as the barrier to entry continues to drop. While it’s easy for parents to hand an old tablet or smartphone to their kids to play with, what’s more meaningful is letting kids engage in a technology sandbox more suited for their age and learning level. That’s where Verizon’s Gizmo line of wearables and tablets comes in.
Starting with the GizmoPal and continuing with the GizmoGadget, GizmoPal2 and Verizon Kid’s Tablet, the Gizmo suite of products is the perfect technology playground for your kids. And you can rest assured that our kid-friendly tablets, accessories and apps will help educate, entertain and keep your kids safe. But don’t take our word for it. Check out some recent feature articles about the entire Gizmo family.
