CIDE Interactive, a French based global toy industry leading-edge company dedicated to incorporating new technologies with learning and the development of childhood comprehension has entered an agreement with toy innovator Techno Source – a division of LF Products, in order to distribute the Kurio line of Android-based tablets in North America. Kurio is a 7″ multi-touch-screen Wi-Fi-enabled tablet with an open Android system that allows parents to monitor and control their child’s interaction while online. Advanced parental controls – found in a password protected parental area – enable management of internet access, application store access and purchase control, time control options, and more. Parents can set different controls for each user profile, expanding access as the child becomes older. “Kurio was introduced at London and Nuremberg Toy Fairs with much fanfare,” said Eric Levin, Division Head, Techno Source. “It was awarded “Best of Show” and we knew immediately that we wanted to be the ones to introduce it to the North American market. Kurio will be a game-changer in the global tablet market.” “We received a lot of interest in Kurio, but in the end, we chose Techno Source as our North American partner because of their passion, powerful distribution network and proven ability to market products to parents and children,” said Eric Wolff, General Manager, CIDE Interactive.
