Junior wants a tablet? Here are 10 tablets designed for kids
It seems like kids nowadays are obsessed with tablets – you'll have a hard time finding a child who doesn't like playing games, watching cartoons, or browsing the web on one. At the same time, not all children are quite ready to own their own "adult" tablet as these are, in general, very fragile devices. So then, what is a parent to do if they want to get a tablet of some kind for their 4-year-old son or daughter? Well, there's a handful of tablet models that are built specifically for young children. And we're not talking only about their durable design as their software has been tailored for the younger user as well. Here we've picked 10 of these tablets for kids. Check them out below and tell us what you think in the comments!

Because buying a tablet for your kid is far more enjoyable than spending time with your kid.

Have kids?

Probably not. Parenting is hard, which is why some people find it easier to give their kids an iPad while they do something else. Anyway, I will try not to give my kids a tablet, or at least keep it minimal.

Our 4 yr old has a nabi xd with the play store added and tons of parental controls and that thing has saved mom and dads sanity on many a road trip.

Yeah, my parents always say that technology has taken over kids' lives and destroyed their imagination. Your example shows that technology can indeed be very practical and helpful on something like a road trip...

True that. I bought the Nabi Jr for my daughter, she learned lots of letters, numbers and songs from it at early age. Plus it helped us with the discipline part, she has 1 hr/day of playing with the tab, if she acts bad then we punish her by taking it away.

Hmm, to me these tablets seem pretty pathetic, but I guess they're alright for a four-year-old...

These are what poor people have to pick from. Wealthier iPeople would only give their iKid an iPad.

That's funny. My uncle is a contractor (he built Mariah Careys house) and is very rich (I'm jealous). He bought his kid (13) a Samsung Tab, but they didn't like it. Eventually, he gave his kid his old iPad he used for his job (3D blueprints, contracts, etc) and bought himself a new iPad. So I guess, in the end, they still get iPads.. loooool

Number 10 is the true king of bezels. Quit bickering about the HTC One M8 and such for having large bezels.

Well it has bigger bezels than the m7 which is ironic with the useless black htc logo bar.

Kid tablet = bright colors, big bumbers, and low specs
