Tip & How-To about Toys R Us Tabeo

My tip is not to buy this piece of junk

The tablet only works when parental controls are activated. You can't use the parental controls if their server is down, and it's been down for over 24 hours. A lot of kids have a useless paper weight that they can't play with, which they got for Christmas. I don't want a table that can only be used if their server is up, and they don't even have back up servers. This piece of "equipment" is a complete joke. Don't buy it if you haven't already, and return it if you have. Anything that this is thie poorly designed, in which they haven't thought through what happens if their server is down, has to be full of problems from poor design and just simply not thinking!

Hi i forgot my parental controls on my sons tab ptab780 how can i unlock his tablet???


You will need to perform a reset on the tablet, which should clear your parental controls. Be advised, you may lose some data when performing this activity.

can not set parental controls on Tabeo E2


The parental controls server needed to set this up is down. I've been in the information technology business for a long time, and this is extremely hard to believe that they made something that has this glaring problem. If their server is down, it's not going to work, and they don't have any backup server to replace it. I'm returning my Tabeo today (as I understand a lot of people are doing). I don't want my kid to have to depend on it if they want to use their tablet. It's bad enough that they got it for Christmas and all they can use if for is a paper weight so far.

my meep tablet keeps saying times up when trying to open games


If you are receiving a message on your Meep of 'Times Up!', please try the following steps:
1. Register your Meep. Many of the capabilities of the Meep require the parent account to exist which puts the Meep into our system.
2. Adjust your parental settings to allow for times of use. You must set a time limit for every type of allowed activity and then save those settings. If you did set up permissions and you have the Times Up message, check that your settings are the way you set them and haven't been changed. 3. Update your Meep to our latest firmware version using our Meep Ota App available in the Meep Store and through Google Play. Earlier operating versions are linked to the Times Up issue.

If you still have a Times Up message:
1. It could be an issue within your browser in that it's retaining old settings and not updating them. Try clearing the browser cache and/or disabling extensions within your browser. Another option is our Meep Together smartphone app which can also be used to adjust parental settings instead of the portal website.
2. It could be your Meep is not connecting at this time to our servers thus not being able to receive the updated settings. Check that you show a green dot which means you are connecting to us or send a Private Message with your serial # and we can check the connection from our side.
3. Another option that bypasses servers is that you can update the settings right from the Meep's own parental control interface, assuming you are on version 2.1. Additionally, within the parental app on the Meep, you can reset the timer for the Meep with the reset button, the small circular icon in the upper right hand corner of the time management screen. Once reset, you can adjust the settings as you wish.
