Tablets for Kids

SHAILA on December 20, 2012

If you have a tablet at home, you know that our children are way more adept at using the tablet than the adults. Do they really need a kids’ tablet? Well, often times, it becomes difficult to share a tablet across the family and in times like these, budget tablets come to mind. 

Many reputed toy manufacturers like Fisher-Price, Leap Frog, not to mention of Toy ‘R’ Us' Tabeo which hit the shelves in October, came up with kid friendly offers. 

The Tabeo

The 7-inch, multi touch device, with a 1GHz processor, is protected with a drop-safe bumper. It is Wi-Fi enabled, but kids also fancy its 50 preloaded games, books and other educational apps. Added to this you get an access to the 6,000 plus apps in the Tabeo store which contains parental control apps too.

It has a front facing camera and provision to connect with the TV. Its storage capacity of 4GB can be increased to 32GB with a micro SDHC card.

On the flip side, it’s just like any other entry level Android tablet, but at $149.99 its price allures.

Nabi2 Tablet

It’s not a toy, its Nabi2, claims the child on their website. This 7-inch Android tablet from Fuhu, working on NVIDIA quad-core processor comes with a protective red border, preloaded with games, music and customised educational lessons for K-5 children.

Nabi2 gives you the facility to create a chore list for your children and reward them on completion. Web browsing is possible and kids can access sites like National Geographic Little Kids, Disney fairies, etc. while sites for grownups remain unavailable.

A few disadvantages include lower resolution at 1024x600 however; children may not find it a hamper.  There’s no access to play store, and it’s priced at $199, but checking out post-black Friday deals helps.

Meep

This 7 inch Android tablet from Oregon Scientific comes preloaded with art and learning apps and games like Angry Birds.

Designed for children from age 6,

  • It recognizes they need access to a wider content hence gives built-in parental control apps
  • Provides a camera, a video camera with a HDMI port
  • G Sensor, for tilt based games

If your child loves reading then consider Amazon’s Kindle and Barns and Noble’s Nook. iPad too makes a good choice and what’s more its considered a play device too. All three can be setup with parental control apps like the one provided by Mobicip

As mentioned, choices are a plenty, but the iPad beats them all. To quote from the article of Edward.C.Baig, in the USA Today, ‘the iPad is clearly still the tablet to beat.’
