I want the crab!!! Are the TVs of a decent quality?
Great idea for kids, sadly the pricing is way off the mark imho.

£200 for a 9.6 inch screen? No thanks :)
Is it just me or is there something ever so adult being shown on that apple TV?!?

EDIT - nope just me :embarrassed:
Ha! I thought that too.
Admit crab is cute too.
Keep your eye on Hannspree/Hanns-G, likely to be a big player in the future ;).
