MUMBAI: Nickelodeon and Fuhu have signed a multi-year deal to produce and distribute Nickelodeon-themed tablet accessories and nabi Jr. tablets pre-loaded with the network?s content.

"We are honored to partner with Nickelodeon, a company that is synonymous with rich and engaging kids and family entertainment, and is genuinely humbling to be creating a unique technology platform like nabi Jr. in collaboration with Nick Jr. content.
