School Zone Publishing's Little Scholar® Tablet Named to 2015 Toy Insider Hot Holiday Toys List

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (November 3, 2015) — School Zone Publishing announced that its Little Scholar® Learning Tablet has been listed on the 2015 Toy Insider Hot Holiday Toys list in the preschool (3-5 yrs) category. Billing itself as "THE source for the hottest toys & gifts for the holidays (and everyday!)", the website also says, "The Toy Insider is dedicated to providing consumers with the most up-to-date insight on toys and children's entertainment." This year is the 10th annual holiday gift guide.

Little Scholar, playful, powerful, and packed with learning, builds readiness skills to last a lifetime. Designed for preschoolers, kindergartners, and first graders, the tablet helps this age group master math, reading, spelling, and more, with over 200 preloaded apps, videos, e-books, and songs. Progressive challenge combines with playful creativity. For example, the tablet includes 87 original songs, and the fun and learning continue with one-of-a-kind video programming. Charlie & Company™ is a new, interactive educational video series with live action and animation, starring Charlie the Golden Retriever and his best friend, Miss Ellie, who embark on educational adventures. The show also features performances and original music by Brian Vander Ark of The Verve Pipe.

Barbara Peacock, managing director of School Zone, said, "We are delighted that the Toy Insider has included Little Scholar on its Hot Holiday Toys list. They promote that they ‘are here to help find the perfect toy to bring a smile to your kid's face,' and we, at School Zone, share that goal. We've definitely seen a lot of smiling kids and parents using Little Scholar, and so have others. Just recently it was named one of ‘The top devices for little hands' by HuffPost Parents and was also featured on The Gadget Guy Steve Greenberg's Back to School tour this fall. Dozens of organizations, publications, and parenting blogs have also given Little Scholar a big thumbs-up in their reviews."

Little Scholar® requires no registration or credit card at start-up, includes no upsells or ads for buying more apps, has no expensive cartridges to lose, and requires no Internet connection, so it reduces worries about kids accessing objectionable content.
