RTÉ Digital today announced the launch of the RTÉjr Juniorpad, an Android tablet for 2-7 year olds, which offers the perfect mix of premium RTÉjr content along with the all the benefits of an Android 4.2 tablet and pre-loaded parental controls.Tech savvy children can now enjoy over 5 hours of RTÉjr content pre-loaded on an Android tablet including Meet the Animals, Musical Families and Tell Me a Story from RTÉjr Radio, and Hubble, The Clue Crew, Storytime, Tell Me a Story, The Curious World of Professor Fun & Dr Dull from RTÉjr Television. “Children have become increasingly tech-literate, and using technology is now as natural as using pens and paper”, says Múirne Laffan, Managing Director of RTÉ Digital, “But it’s also become crucial to ensure children remain safe on-line, and provide them with age-appropriate trusted content pre-loaded and a parental app that will safeguard their on-line experiences. We saw the RTÉjr Pad as a great way to introduce young children to technology in a safe environment”. The RTÉjr Juniorpad will be available on www.rte.ie/shop and in all major retailers from November 30th, and will retail at €149.99. RTÉjr is a cross-platform ad-free service for 0-7 year olds on television, radio and online, which was launched last April. This competitively priced tablet adds to the suite of free and ad-free services available on RTÉ Television, RTÉ Radio online and on iOS devices. In addition, RTÉjr has just launched the RTÉjr Facebook Page for grown-ups at www.facebook.com/RTEjr .
