Best tablets for kids
Is there anybody out there still considering the possibility of buying a tablet for your kids? We have all found the touchscreens full of fingerprints. Kids love touchscreen devices and a tablet for them can be a good gift.
These are the points to consider when choosing a tablet for our kids:
• Durability. Inevitably, a tablet in the hands of children is going to end up falling on the floor, someone will step on it (child or toy), and probably it will get wet. A protective case is essential to avoid disasters.
• Size. The ideal size for children’s hands is about 5-7 inches.
• Operating system and parental control. Some OS carry a parental control, while others (especially Android) will require adjustments by us.
• Apps. The tablets with LeapFrog and VTech OS have the best educational apps. Both have agreements with Disney and you can easily find your favorites characters, but their apps are usually more expensive than others.
