As nearly every parent knows, kids love our tablets and smartphones. Whether it’s a good idea to let them use them or not is up to parents. We constantly get asked about what kid tablets are available for children, or great kids tablets to replace an iPad. As a result, below is a collection of a few worth considering.
Often these days parents simply hand a smartphone or their iPad to a child to keep them calm, quiet, or entertained. And while it may not be the best way to do things, kids love them. From playing games, watching YouTube videos and more. The iPad is an expensive toy, one that often gets broken if abused or dropped by kids.
In an effort to save parents some hard-earned money, not to mention get kids their own tablet that is more than just a device to watch YouTube, we’ve gathered a list of some great low-cost iPad alternatives for children. These are built for kids, have educational content, and much more.
These aren’t just cheap Android tablets, as anyone can go out and buy one of those, which doesn’t solve the problem. Our tablets below are devices that have permission or parent controls, are durable or “kid-resistant” and are educational with apps for learning rather than wasting away time on the web, YouTube, social media or boring games.
With 2015 coming to a close there are multiple excellent kid friendly tablets that are available to buy. Some run Android, others have their own operating system, and we even have a two-in-one Windows 10 device that’s almost like a Microsoft Surface Pro laptop for kids. There’s a little of something for everyone, at varying prices for those looking for something specific.
If you’d rather not hand off that expensive iPad Air 2 to your kids, would like to get something a little cheaper or one that’s focused on learning, these are some of the best choices available today.
