Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Chances are… probably not. If you are a parent of young children, you’ve probably been overwhelmed with bulky Christmas lists that make your wallet hurt. Along with that, you’ve probably had many requests for expensive electronics. So, the issue is finding some new-age technology that allows for some parental control and doesn’t break the bank. If any of this describes you, take a look below at some of the better child-friendly tablets available on the market this holiday season!
LeapFrog Epic: In terms of the games and apps offered on the device there is a high variety of options, however they are among the most expensive on the market. The Epic comes with 16GB of memory built-in, but includes an expandable micro USB that brings storage to 32GB. The battery life is pretty solid as you can expect the battery life to last about 5 hours, which makes it great for long trips! The biggest negative to this device is that it does not come with any included accidental damage coverage. For $99.99 the LeapFrog Epic is an excellent first tablet for any child!
Verizon GizmoTab: This device is perfect for parental control! Users have access to hundreds of educational apps and fun games for kids, however there is no web browsing included in the GizmoTab (unless the parent decides to install). One of the more innovative features of the device is that you can turn the GizomTab into a fully functional tablet with 3GB RAM running on Android Marshmallow. This is a big plus once your child matures past the youth-based apps. If you are willing to splash a little extra cash, the Verizon GizmoTab is your choice at $249.99.
Amazon Fire (Kids Edition): This is the probably the fan favorite across the market. The Amazon Fire (Kids Edition) is loaded with more than 10,000 books, videos, games, and educational apps made for children! The device comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which allows the user the chance to access kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, apps and games. This includes extensive parental control allowing parents to set time limits and control what your child views. The best news for parent’s everywhere is that the Amazon Fire (Kids Edition) comes equipped with a two-year replacement guarantee for any damaged device. For only $99.99, this is an awesome option for gifting this Christmas!
Fisher Price Learning Tablet: Out of all the options listed in this blog, the Fisher Price Learning Tablet comes in at the cheapest at $84.99. The device itself comes included with 35 apps and games that have been constructed to stimulate learning. The age range for this device is for children from the ages of 3-7 and allows the kids the opportunity to learn how to count in both English and Spanish. This is a great option for anyone looking for a more educational tablet for younger children!
