How can you explain to your kids they can’t play with your tablet when they always catch you playing games on it most of the time? We all know that while our tablets are used mostly for our line of work, we can also use it for pleasure and stress-relieving games and novelties. However, we can’t always trust our kids to handle our tablets with utmost care like we do. Good thing there are relatively cheaper versions appropriate for kids’ use. What’s good about these tablets for kids is that they are loaded with educational software and games so you can count on the kids giving you some quiet time the moment they get their hands on these. They also mostly come with protection so your small investment will sure go a long way. Here are the market’s best tablets for kids:
Nabi 2 Tablet
This is an updated version of the Nabi Tablet, voted as the best for kids. Of course another best feature is the price, with approximately $190 it’s a catch! What can you expect from it? It runs on Android 4 Ice Cream OS, has 1 GB RAM with 2 MP camera for that “kiddy Kodak moments”. For the visual and psychological entertainment, it’s pre-loaded with 25 free games, 50 kiddy songs, and about 30 story books. This device is equipped with wifi and Bluetooth so you can download more games, songs or videos for your kid. Another kid-friendly feature is the red rubber bumper that wraps the 7 inch tablet around the edges for protection.
Arnova Child Pad
This is another 7 inch android tablet that’s quite “kid-specific” than the Nabi 2. This also runs on Android 4 on single core 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. Its operating system is Ice cream sandwich version of Google.
You might think that a screen resolution of 800 x 480 is a deal breaker; but for a kid running games all day long, the interactive entertainment is more than enough. As for apps, you’ll be glad to know that Arnova uses the AppsLib data base and not Google’s Play Store; this means you can be sure that kid appropriate apps only are downloaded even without your supervision.
This tablet has already made a name for itself. Initially an e-book reader, this time this tablet is already equipped with full functionality running on smooth 1.2GHz dual core processor. With Amazon’s new Kindle FreeTine software you’re assured that Amazon is on your siude by controlling the user’s access to baffling array of offers, to the point of limiting the daily time of use. If not for this, mom or dad’s credit cards may be in trouble for downloads that aren’t even parent-approved.
