Stocks in this article: BKS

NOOK Media LLC, a subsidiary of Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, and Fuhu, Inc., the leader in tablets made just for kids, announced today the launch of an innovative NOOK app for children that will come installed on Fuhu’s nabi tablets, including the nabi Jr., nabi 2 and nabi XD, beginning late Summer.

The new NOOK App for Kids to be installed on nabi tablets is fully compliant with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and provides a curated reading experience for children, with access to thousands of new and classic children’s titles. The nabi tablets will also come preloaded with the full NOOK for Android app for use in parent mode, providing adult users with access to more than 3 million books, magazines, newspapers, comics and graphic novels in the NOOK Store , including more than a million free titles.

The new NOOK App for Kids will be preloaded on the entire line of nabi products including: nabi Jr. (5-inch, $99), nabi 2 (7-inch, $179) and nabi XD (10.1-inch, $249). The nabi tablet is the #1 selling tablet for children, built with the most comprehensive set of parental controls, its exclusive nabi Coins and Treasure Box, Spinlets Plus TV and music stores, and Fooz Kids University and Wings Learning System. nabi is the only choice for high-quality tablets made just for kids.

Through this entirely new application designed specifically for children, NOOK offers various features exclusive to the NOOK Kids reading experience. Kids can easily find a favorite story and engage with the books and their favorite characters by digitally turning pages, interacting with the text, and zooming in and around graphics – all on the nabi tablets. The app also helps parents select books that are appropriate for their children by giving them complete control over the browsing and shopping experience. The new app adheres to the Federal Trade Commission’s regulations on children’s online privacy under COPPA.

“This new partnership with Fuhu continues our commitment to making NOOK content available to our new and existing customers across a broad range of platforms and devices,” said Mike Saturnia, Vice President and General Manager of NOOK Sales & Business Development. “By installing our innovative kids app alongside our NOOK for Android app on Fuhu’s exciting nabi tablets, we are opening up NOOK’s expansive content offering to even more families and children.”
