Kid friendly tablet


Looking to get my 4.5 year old a tablet for Xmas. I'm looking for something where I can download education apps.

Is there something cheaper than an Ipad?

My library has preloaded educational ones from LaunchPad. They have different age ranges PK-K, K-2, 3-5. You can take them out for a week at a time. They're free. Maybe your library has something similar.

Samsung Galaxy Tablet or Kindle Fire
DD has had both. Both are fine for her needs.

DD is almost 4 and has the kids kindle. It’s indestructible though it takes FOREVER to charge.

I’m sure there will be Black Friday deals.

Amazon Fire Tablet. My DS has been using it since he was 2 and has learned so much from apps I've downloaded.

Re: Kid friendly tablet

i just got my kids ipads.

They go on sale lately for about $300 for 128GB if you wanted smaller space the price goes down. I get them the otter box to protect it and the plan.

I like that i can share our purchases with each other. this comes in handy for any movies we download.

We just have the regular fire. They're around $30 on black Friday. We used to pay for freetime unlimited for them but now we just use the free version which is fine since I can control which games they download. We don't use them a ton so I didn't want to spend much on anything fancy.

Re: Kid friendly tablet

I agree with the Amazon Fire tablet. We do not have the kids version...just the regular one that was about $30 on sale. There is not much memory on there, but you can use a removable micro sd card to add storage which is very helpful

Re: Kid friendly tablet

My kids all have the Amazon fire and I freakin hate it. Its forever to charge, it's a pain to operate and, for some bizarre reason, they are all connected to one account so my older son's has sucked all the storage from the other ones. That makes no sense to me but that's what they told me when I called. I would get a refurbished ipad if I had to do it again.

I too would vote iPad
Half the battle is getting a good and strong case with plastic screen in front to prevent from scratch and falls
Samsung doesn’t have a whole lot of cases and I dropped my Samsung and it doesn’t work
My iPads go thro abuse daily! and last a long time

i would do with the iPad.... you can get factory refurbished ones and save some money. both my boys have them, and its nice because i feel like they can easily handle the games, etc that they want to do on them, DH and i can send them iMessages, they can iMessage with my in laws or my parents (none of them live close to us, so its nice they can keep in touch...). we pretty much just give the boys our old iPads as we get new ones HAHA

Re: Kid friendly tablet

Just get an iPad and put a child case on it. My girls got them at 2 and 3 years old and they lasted forever. Never a cracked screen and never ran out of storage. We just upgraded them finally a year ago.
