The FunBoard is an interactive game table for children. It’s just like a tablet, but bigger and better. The Funboard can be laid on a table, used on the floor, or mounted on a wall. Children are drawn to the engaging content and get quickly absorbed in the games and the will to explore. What makes the Gaming Touch Table unique is that several children can simultaneously point, draw, click around and search for information and it promotes their collective learning
