Children love Tanoshi

With the current crowdfunding campaign we hope to bring the full Android user experience at an affordable price to families who want to raise their kids in a digital learning environment that inspires creativity and is appropriate for children under 13 years old.

Today a Silicon Valley startup Tanoshi announced that its fun and educational Tanoshi 2-in-1 computer with the full Android 7.0 experience for pre-teens is now available for pre-order on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The goal of the crowdfunding campaign is to support the manufacturing of mass production devices.

Offering the full Android 7.0 Nougat user experience with access to over 2 million apps through Google Play Store, Tanoshi 2-in-1 (tablet + detachable keyboard) is a perfect learning tool with complete computer functionality specifically designed for school age children. Tanoshi 2-in-1 features perfect size 10.1” HD touchscreen for kids ages 6-12, with extra screen protection included for accidental falls and scratches. Tanoshi has a fun signature design with three different colors to choose from - blue, pink and green, includes a full-size detachable keyboard and comes pre-loaded with educational apps including apps to help with math, research, geography, reading and writing, as well as learn to code and problem solve, including Nancy Drew®: Codes and Clues®. Tanoshi also comes with popular Android apps, including Docs, Sheets, Calculator, Maps, Earth, Gmail, Chrome Browser, YouTube Kids, etc.

In addition Tanoshi comes pre-loaded with the Family Link app from Google. Family Link helps parents to stay in the loop as their kid explores on their Android device. With the Family Link app parents can manage the apps their kid can use, keep an eye on screentime, and set a bedtime for the kid’s device. To learn more about Family Link, please visit

Tanoshi’s Kickstarter campaign starts today and will run through October 15th, 2017. The campaign has a fundraising goal of $50,000. Early backers can take advantage of a number of rewards with super savings, including:

  • First 100 backers will be able to pre-order their Tanoshi 2-in-1 computer for only $149.99, saving $50 versus the regular retail price of $199.99;
  • Furthermore first 50 backers who pledge $269.98 will receive a set of two devices, saving $130 off the regular $399.98 retail price;
  • And for the big family, first 30 backers who pledge $399.97 will receive a set of 3 devices, saving $200 off the regular $599.97 retail price.

Tanoshi is also providing an option for backers to buy sets of 1, 3 or 5 devices and donate them to underserved children in need of access to a computer. Tanoshi is dedicated to help close the technology opportunity gap in America and strongly believes that every child deserves the opportunity to develop fundamental computing and coding skills as early as possible.

Tanoshi 2-in-1 features a quad core processor, 2GB RAM, two cameras - 2MP front and 5MP rear, has 32GB built-in storage, a 5000 mAh battery and is equipped with Bluetooth and dual band WiFi. The full list of specs is available at

In addition, the Tanoshi 2-in-1 computer provides an easy out-of-box setup process for parents to activate and manage appropriate pre-teen device settings. Setting up parental controls on most other devices can be very challenging and limited in features. The other option of searching, researching, selecting and installing a 3rd party parental control program can be very time consuming and difficult, especially for busy hardworking parents, plus usually requires monthly or annual subscription fees. With a price of under $200, which is half the price of an iPad with a keyboard, and the free Family Link app included, Tanoshi 2-in-1 provides the best age-appropriate choice for kids to learn and play.

“We created a unique hardware plus software product that supports the lifestyle and development needs of today’s ‘digital native’ kids and their parents, - said Brad Johnston, CEO and Co-founder of Tanoshi. – With the current crowdfunding campaign we hope to bring the full Android user experience at an affordable price to families who want to raise their kids in a digital learning environment that inspires creativity and is appropriate for children under 13 years old.”

The shipments of Tanoshi 2-in-1 computer to the general public in the US are targeted to begin in December 2017. Computers will be initially available in blue and pink colors. Tanoshi 2-in-1 computers are slated to retail for the regular price of $199.99.
