Carlton J. King "Would that Gandalf were here!", Amazon

Summary: I suppose I should have done more in depth research...it doesn't appear too user friendly to me or my daughter--from initial setup to changing settings, it's like calling a help-line and getting one recording option after another without ever speaking to a real person... as for the camera function, the ability to only take "selfie" pictures is baffling. Very disappointed with this purchase. Would gladly return it if possible.
Summary: We've had nothing but problems with the NABI. It's impossible to get help. Other than chatting on FB there are no troubleshooting phone numbers. We weren't able to make updates. We weren't able to use it for much of anything. Best of all we can't even charge it now bc the charger is somehow malfunctioning as well. Don't waste your money on this product. We are VERY dissatisfied.
Summary: I bought two of these last Christmas and at first they were wonderful. Then the problems started. Both chargers fell apart within weeks (the sleeve that separates the positive and negative inside just came out).. we were offered replacement chargers... One tablet started to act up, wouldn't function when it was plugged into the charger. It would lock up, not boot and simply crash when connected. We sent it back.
The Nabi Experience is terrible- from unstable software, to malfunctioning hardware, to awful customer support

Summary: Hardware wise it is appealing. I bought this when my daughter was 4 going on 5, and she is now 6yo, and did the same for her sister when she turned 4. I recommended it to my friends who also bought one. Initially there were issues, trouble with apps not updating, daddy mode not working spontaneously, their old coin currency (which they dropped). The "proprietary" education app, Wings, never worked right.
Summary: You can't save or move apps to the SD card. EVERYDAY you need to delete an app to add a new one as internal storage is very limited as all of the system/google files take most of the space. GARBAGE!!!!!
Summary: The Nabi was a used product with a faulty charger and had dirt in the creases on the back, also did not have the plastic film over the window like all new ones. The seller promptly refunded my money as soon as I shipped it back.
Don't Buy It! I'd give it a negative star if they had one!

Summary: Do NOT buy a Nabi! Don't do it! You will lose your money! I bought one from Best Buy (who is no longer selling them!!!) for my daughter at Christmas. The charger stopped working. Best Buy allowed for an exchange at the end of April. I delayed in doing the software upgrades because it is a huge pain (you have to do two right away to be able to access google). So my daughter only started using it in the middle of May. Then we lost it for about 4 weeks.
Summary: Initial out of the box impression very weak. I think this unit was used. The screen was smeared and smudged and the tablet was in its bumper case backwards. Charging is very slow and apparently it won't turn on until it's charged to a certain level. I'll update this review if things get better (or worse) but right now feeling "had" in the experience. Update: the device was already registered to another user and had some personal data on it.
Fragile, poor quality, plagued with software issues and POOR Cust. Serv!

Summary: Would be a wonderful tablet for a child IF it was durable. Fuhu, the company that manufacturers the Nabi, shows a drop test against an Ipad and of course, the Nabi withstands much higher drops. I can say without a doubt that that test is fake. We have had two Nabi's that did not last over one month each (one actually only lasted two weeks). The LCD's are fragile and break easily. Both tablets were used indoors by a 12 year old child. Neither were abused.
Summary: I should have listen to the other reviews, and not waste $200.00 on this product. First one came not working. The second one came with games that are not even worth it because you have to.buy everything, because every game is limited, then I try to buy the full verisios and each time it's saying unable to process at this time. This is not even worth $50. I am so frustrated...
