June 16, 2014 10:49 am

Cartoon Network Arabic has joined forces with Kurio to launch its first ever branded tablet for children: Cartoon Network Arabic Kurio7S.

The tablet, which has been specifically designed for this region, lets children enjoy some of Cartoon Network Arabic’s preloaded programmes and characters wherever they are, whilst parents can relax knowing the Kurio7S has parental controls and an advanced web filtering system for child-safe browsing.

These controls put parents firmly in charge of content. They can choose age appropriate apps, set individual time limits on usage and the advanced web filtering system means that internet browsing is completely safe for children.

Cartoon Network Arabic Kurio7S tablet is fully customizable, and users have the flexibility to set up to eight completely independent user profiles, so it can be shared with the family.

Unlike any other gadget of its kind, children get the chance to have fun with Cartoon Network Arabic applications and games, watch clips from their favourite shows, as well as choose desktop backgrounds with all their favourite heroes.

The tablet comes equipped with more than 100 applications: E-books, games, and educational content and is preloaded with some of Cartoon Network Arabic’s shows in both English and Arabic. Favorite shows such as Gumball, Adventure Time, B10, Omniverse and Courage the Cowardly Dog all feature, ready for children to enjoy. Games include Ben10 Cavern Run, Toonix and a Cartoon Network Arabic Quiz App.

Children can download more Cartoon Network Arabic apps via the “CN +” icon that redirects to Google Play. There is also a CN Arabic icon that redirects to the Cartoon Network Arabic website. All downloads can be controlled by parents.

Commenting on the launch, Tarek Mounir (Commercial Director, Middle East, North Africa Greece & Cyprus at Turner Broadcasting) said: “We’re thrilled to launch the first ever Cartoon Network Arabic Kurio7S tablet.
