Amazon's Top Ten Tablets For Kids

In a lot of ways I kind of feel like a technology dummy. Last on the scene with a lot of these products. My daughter who is 8 has been begging me for a tablet for awhile and I have a feeling it's like my iPhone that she'll know how to use it way better than me when I get her one. I have been leaning towards getting her one this year depending on grades and her behavior tho so this list is helpful! 

Top Ten Tablets for Kids
  1. The first and most obvious choice for those who really want a tablet that is a heavy hitter, has all the bells and whistles, yet is still designed with kids in mind -- The FIRE HD 6 Kids Edition. Coming in at $149.00 shipped with Prime, this tablet has everything YOU would want in a tablet and more, yet comes with a boatload of safety features with kids in mind, including a case and a 2yr worry free guarantee (they will replace it no questions asked). This is the tablet I want, your kids will surely love it! 
  2. The next tablet I like is the MEEP X2. I love that this one comes as a set that includes headphones, and that it has a duel core processor. Currently on sale for $109.99 with Prime, this would make a great gift! 
  3. Kurio is another brand that seems to have kids in mind. With plenty of safety features, the 10s, 7s, and the Xtreme all are built with kids in mind. Prices range from $59.99 - $179.99 so all you have to do is choose the one that fits your family best. 
  4. Another brand that has a great range of products is Nabi. Pricing starts at $99.99 and you can also get some pretty awesome accessories as low as $11.86. 
  5. If price is your main concern, a more inexpensive option is the ProntoTec KidTab. At $49.99 shipped, this is a great starter tablet that still has all the full features you would expect. 
  6. The Orbo Jr. is another inexpensive tablet that offers great features. It comes in red, pink, or blue, has a durable case, and can you purchased for $59.95 with prime! 
  7. Younger children may not be quite ready for a full featured tablet just yet. This is where one of my favorite brands comes in. The LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra is an amazing award winning tablet with young kids in mind. Built for kids aged 4-9, this thing has everything kids want, and nothing they don't need. You can track their educational progress in the learning path (online), and if you purchase a LeapPad Ultra right now you will get a free gel skin! On sale for $129.00 with Prime. 
  8. You can also purchase an older generation LeapPad, like the LeapPad3 or the LeapPad2 and save a little money. If you aren't worried about getting the latest technology, this would be a great money saving route to go. Currently $89.95 and $59 respectively, these are a great value! 
  9. Another brand that offers tablets designed for younger kids is the InnoTab. The InnoTab3 or InnoTab3s (with wi-fi) are both great learning tablets that can also take external game cartridges to extend the playing and learning experience. My five year old daughter does have the InnoTab3 and loves being able to use it on long car rides. The pink version is lowest prices in both models right now, currently at $57.48 and $59.99 respectively, a great deal. You can also get a bundle in the blue version for $79.99, and this includes a case, screen protector, and cleaning cloth. 
  10. Lastly, for those who don't really need a tablet that has a lot of features and just need something to doodle with, yet still be able to save those doodles, the Boogie Board is for you! The Boogie Board LCD writing tablet is great for note-taking, drawing, list-making, and more. I have one and love to have the kids practice their spelling use this, hit save, then wipe the slate clean for the next use - this way I can electronically save their progress throughout the years without having a ton of paper lying around. Currently $29.96 shipped with Prime!
