If you happen to be shopping for an Android tablet for your younger child you may be in luck. Well, that is assuming you are interested in this kid-friendly 7-inch tablet from Oregon Scientific. The tablet is the MEEP! and it arrives sporting a price of $149.99. The tablet will be available with a wide variety of retailers including Toys R Us, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon and others.

Some of the kid-friendly perks include being able to drop the device without being worried that the display will crack. This, according to Oregon Scientific is courtesy of the bright orange silicon bumper, the recessed screen and zForce touchscreen. But durability is not the only kid-friendly perk. The MEEP! tablet also uses Neonode Multisensing technology which should help to make the touchscreen easier to use. And of course, what kid-friendly gadget would be complete without a parents portal. In the case of the MEEP!, this portal can be accessed online (from the MEEP! website) and allows parents to hand-pick websites and keywords that children can have access to as well as blacklist specific sites and search terms. Not to mention, the already provided blacklist to get you started.

Otherwise, the MEEP! tablet is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with specs to include a 7-inch (800 x 480) display, 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, an SD card slot, Wi-Fi, VGA quality front-facing camera and HDMI. And finally, if orange is not your color, rest assured in knowing that Oregon Scientific has purple and pink bumpers available (for an additional cost).
