5 best tablets for kids

Tablets are the perfect device for children; laptops can often be too bulky and PCs cannot be taken on-the-go. You need to ensure the tablet is child-friendly so you can keep your child safe from inappropriate online content, and so you don’t end up with a huge iTunes bill! We have compiled a list of the 5 best tablets for kids, which all offer strong parental control, child-friendly apps and games and a secure frame which will keep it safe in their hands. The best thing is that they are all portable-friendly and will keep your child busy and entertained! Whether you want your child to use the tablet for learning, playing games or a bit of both, here are the best ones for you to choose from:



1) iPad mini 2


If you want a ‘family’ device which your child can also use, the iPad mini 2 is a great option from our 5 best tablets for kids. The screen quality is great as well as the performance quality, whether the kids are using it for playing games or watching YouTube videos, or you’re using it to Skype friends and family. Tablets which are specially formulated for children can be quite pricy, so it’s a good idea to purchase an all-round winner like the iPad mini 2 if you know your child will be supervised while using it, or if you purchase screen protection and a robust cover for it. 


2) Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids



The kid’s version of the hugely popular Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has slightly reduced specs in comparison to the adult one, along with a range of exclusive children’s apps so it made the cut for our 5 best tablets for kids. It is a sturdy device with a quick-to-respond screen and a robust outer case which makes it comfortable for kid’s to use –whether that’s during car journeys, on holidays or at home.


3)  Amazon Fire HD6 Kids Edition


This tablet is ideal for kids and it has the ideal screen for reading – when the children are not playing games on it so its definitely one of the 5 best tablets for kids available. Along with a free year of Amazon Fire for Kids and unlimited access to games, apps, books and films, this will be a great educational and entertainment device for your child. Available for only £109, it’s sure to be a purchase you won’t regret! The device has a toughened screen, durable rubber case and a lengthy 2 year guarantee – everything you need to make it accident-proof so the kids can use it without supervision. You can also disable web access on the device, as well as set time limits on games.


4) LeapFrog Epic


The LeapFrog Epic is great as a first device for kids; it’s the perfect miniature size for small hands and is specifically designed for young users. It is a 7-inch Android-powered device and has a specially developed LeapSearch browser which offers expertly filtered pages. It’s also great for sharing between siblings as it offers multiple user profiles. The screen quality may not be as premium as the iPad Mini 2, however if it’s just the kids using it, that may not be your first priority.


5) LeapPad Platinum

pic-5The LeapPad Platinum is great for kids as it has a specifically designed sturdy casing which makes it accident-proof. It also has an extensive range of pre-loaded content for children – you can also buy apps from the LeapFrog app store, although it’s not as wide-ranging as the app choice on Apple or Android. It is an affordable choice at £99 and it has essential features such as a built-in stylus, front and rear cameras, headphones, a speaker and a child-friendly web browser.
