The upcoming Nabi DreamTab’s ads show a group of young girls in a treehouse playing with tablets. Some have questioned the treehouse as a metaphor for this generation, but who doesn’t love the treehouse? Or at least the dream of a treehouse? The new product is a partnership between Dreamworks Animation and Nubu and promises a closed and protected social network for kids. There is also the collaboration feature which I believe will be their strongest suit. Kids can do animations, draw, and write together through their tablets. But everyone in your closed social network will need to have their own Nabi DreamTab to play!
We are really thinking a lot about Barbie these days! Why is there so much talk? After all she can fly, cook, swim, surf, pretend, work, teach, lead, skate, dress up, design, and so much more. What more do we want from this doll? I say, “let girls play!” It’s OK to be young, free, full of imagination AND to like shoes.
