TUALATIN, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/13 -- The Meep Tablet -- a kid-friendly device created by innovative brand Oregon Scientific -- was designed in an effort to resolve many problems experienced by parents who could not find a reliable technological outlet for their children. For instance, the Meep offers a way for parents to monitor a child's use of applications -- to ensure that they are not wasting too much time playing video games. This progressive tablet is also crafted specifically to handle the unique situations that young users face, as it is made to be durable and responsive to a child's frequent use. However, according to many consumers, nothing is more noticeable than the Meep's exceptional features that are designed to help promote online safety among children.

Although many adults may believe that worrying about online safety is a thing of the past -- thanks to intensive monitoring systems -- a recent article from TIME reveals that parents are still greatly concerned about their child's protection on the Internet. The article states, "With summer vacation about to start, kids will inevitably spend even more time online. So here are some tips for making sure they're only seeing what's appropriate for them." However, the article also observes that the vast elements of online safety can quickly become overwhelming for parents who are not "computer scientists."

The makers of the Meep Tablet believe it is critical for all parents to discuss proper online safety provisions with children when they become age-appropriate. However, Oregon Scientific notes that as developed as technology is, it should prove much easier for parents to provide safe online experiences for their children -- especially those that are too young to understand what hazards to look out for.

While TIME suggests that parents make use of Google's safety features and YouTube's security tools on a personal computer, those at Oregon Scientific explain that a kid-friendly device, such as the Meep Tablet, could provide all the solutions. One of the most critical elements of online safety provided by the Meep Tablet, is its parental controls. For instance, parents can monitor and approve chat invitations to prevent their child from speaking to a stranger or an unwanted third party.

"Between complete filtering of objectionable online content, customizable parental controls, YouTube videos, approving online friends and the ability to manage online purchases, Oregon Scientific has thought through all aspects of online safety for the Meep Tablet," the company concludes in a recent press statement.


The Meep Tablet is designed with parents' best interests in mind, catering to children ranging in age from six to 11 with parental control monitors that make it easy to set up the tablet the way you would like your child to use it. Kids are enthusiastic about the child-oriented computer pads that are user-friendly and full of thrilling games and learning potential. The Android-based product is made up of exceptional features and apps that serve multiple purposes. The versatile tablet is designed to further your child's imagination while also helping him or her sharpen critical thinking skills among other educational benefits.
