Why to buy a tablet made for kids

Based on the same technology as regular grown-up tablets, the latest tablets for kids are packed with special features to make them 100% kid-friendly inside and out. Let's take a look at some of the best kids' tablets on the market and find out what makes them so cool.

 

Built for kids

You'll find that children's tablets are a little more colorful than their adult equivalents, but that doesn't mean they're just toys. The Kurio 7S tablet is fabricated from the ground up to appeal to kids and families. Built in a chunky plastic case, it's hardwearing. So it'll survive all the bumps and drops that come along with being in your little ones' hands. Some protective cases, which are usually made of rubber, come off for easy cleaning.

 

Learn and play

Does your little one love the Sprout Channel? Available only at Walmart, the Sprout Cubby tablet is perfect for learning and playtime, as it’s packed with over 40 preloaded Sprout Channel episodes, games, apps and more. One feature exclusive to the Cubby is the ability to color your child’s favorite Sprout Channel characters—Chica, Caillou, The Wiggles, Bob the Builder and Barney, among many others—with the Crayola Color, Draw & Sing app.

Another top kids’ tablet is the nabi DreamTab HD8. It offers an intuitive touchscreen and high-performing Android 4.4 operating system, making it even easier for kids learning to use tablets for the first time. Additionally, educational apps offer feedback as your child learns to use the device.

 

Ready to go

When you buy a tablet for yourself, you want to add the apps you like and need. You'll want your kids to be able to express themselves in the same way, without letting them loose on the Google Play app store with your password. With tablets like the LeapPad3 , app store access is locked down. Instead, kids have access to a LeapFrog educator-approved library of over 1,000 games, eBooks, videos and more. You’ll also find that most kids’ tablets come preloaded with oodles of apps ready to go.

 

Parental control

Parents will appreciate that almost all kids’ tablets feature an Android operating system, which boasts built-in parental controls. You’re in control of the configuration to make sure your child's privacy is safe, and that they don't have access to parts of the web you'd rather they didn't see. The VTech InnoTab 3S Plus has a built-in web browser, for example, but it's configured to make sure that any content your child accesses is kid-friendly. The Kurio 7S tablet uses active web filtering of over 450 million websites to make sure your child can learn safely online.

Not only do these high-tech kids' tablets make for a budget-friendly holiday gift, but they will keep your young geniuses learning while entertaining themselves for years to come.
