The brand Kobo believes that people should read on their own terms. With open platforms that supports popular formats including PDF and EPUB. By Kobo supporting this, it allows consumers to buy and read digital content from a variety of sources.

Being that Kobo offers one of the largest eBookstores with nearly 4 million titles in 68 languages, you will find bestsellers to self publishing, books, magazines, colorful books for children and other selections for any avid reader.

Sharing the love of reading at a early age with your children, can only bring the best results specially when Kobo can provide a collection of titles for children through teens. Kobo makes it a kid friendly experience and easy for parents to preselect books in their special childrens accounts. They also make it easier for parents to set an allowance for them. This way, it allows your children to choose their own books.

Within the Kid’s Kobo store, your child will only be able to search eBooks that are tagged for kids and young adults. I love how Kobo implemented that feature.

Currently, Kobo has 4 eReaders available which are, Kobo Arc, Kobo Arc 7, Kobo Arc 7 HD and Kobo Arc 10 HD. They also carry accessories for your e-Reader.



This Kobo Arc 7 e-Reader is actually what I have been looking for in tablet. It’s designed for readers that are on the go and more!

The 7″ display screen is a perfect size for any age. It displays all your favorite books, movies, games and social media. Need speed and more space? You won’t have any issues with the Kobo Arc 7 e-Reader. It’s jam’n packed with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor that makes it easier and faster for us to multitask. Since it has 1GB of memory, you can be confident with all your digital books that you save.




Setting up the Kobo Arc 7 was extremely fast. The step by step instructions were easy to follow along and took 5 minutes from start to finish. I was able to select preloaded apps for my daughter and books for me to enjoy. Since it’s powered by Android 4.2 Jellybean, you have access of over one million apps and google play games right at your finger tips.

Kobo Arc 7 has a front facing 0.3MP camera that also allows you to video those special moments in your life.




The Arc 7 has a headphone jack with in-line microphone support. Fully charged you will get up to 9 hours of battery life.

In the box you will find, Kobo Arc 7, AC Power Cord, USB Cable and instructions.

I am pretty amazed on how stylish and lightweight the Kobo Arc 7 is. It’s easy for me and my 5 year old daughter to hold. By using the touch screen, we are able to find her books and age appropriate games or apps. Having the ability to use the Wi-Fi , allows us to take the e-Reader on the go. One of the features that I really love is how we can change the fonts so it’s easier for us to read. You can choose 3 different font styles and adjust 7 font sizes. It’s one powerful tablet that is fast! I highly recommend it!

The Kobo Arc 7 retails for $149.99.
