Tablets for Kids - Kindle Fire, iPad, Nabi, LeapPad, ...

Tablet PCs have become very popular with kids. A tablet is not a cheap toy, so you want to make sure you get the right one for your child or family. There are options for preschoolers, little kids, preteens, and teens. Here's an overview of the best tablets for kids to help you choose. I'll be updating with new tablets throughout 2014.

I'm an IT professional and Mom to two elementary school aged boys. We have both the LeapPad and InnoTab learning tablets for kids and we also own a Kindle Fire HD, Google Nexus 7 and two cheap Android tablets which are used by the adults and shared with the kids, oh and an iPhone and Netbook too! And we've added an iPad to the family collection. I'll explain the pros and cons of different options in this article so you can pick the right tablet for your child or children.

If you are considering an Amazon tablet then take a look at my Kindle Fire for Kids page which has much more information.


Choosing a Kids Tablet

When choosing a tablet for a child to use there are four main options:

  1. A kids learning tablet such as the LeapFrog LeapPad or VTech InnoTab. These are specially designed tablets for younger children which have a library of educational software available.
  2. A kid-specific Android tablet such as the Nabi 2. These tablets have a rugged design and parental controls and give access to child-friendly Android apps and limited/monitored internet access.
  3. A general purpose Android tablet such as the Kindle Fire. Not designed for kids (but you can get cases to protect them.) Access to android apps and the web. Limited parental controls.
  4. An Apple iPad. A more expensive option but gives access to lots of excellent kid-friendly apps. You may think you can share an iPad with your child, but they will often want to use it at the same time as you.

We'll take you through some of the best options in each category. Our top tip is to choose a tablet that is appropriate for your child now. If you choose a tablet thinking it will last a long time then it might not be the right choice today and meanwhile the tablet technology will move on by the time your child is old enough to appreciate it.

Some of the Top Choices

We'll go into more detail later on each of these and some other alternatives, but these top choices will give you a good idea of what's currently available on the market.

Kids Learning Tablets

LeapPad3

LeapPad 3

The LeapPad3 is the 2014 update to this popular range of designed-for-kids tablets. This year sees a significant upgrade to the previous models with higher-end features making it into this standard model.

There are lots of educational games available for the LeapPad3. The emphasis here really is on learning through playing rather than on being a general purpose tablet. My children used a LeapPad when they were younger and definitely got a lot from it.

The LeapPad3 has a capacitative touchscreen (like most adult tablets do now), it has a rechargeable battery so you just plug it in to charge and it's faster than previous models. A significant upgrade is kid-safe web browsing.

The recommended age range for the LeapPad3 is 3-9. We'd only recommend buying a new LeapPad for the younger end of this age range though if slightly older kids already have one then they are likely to keep using it.

Older kids start wanting access to word-processing apps and reading text-based eBooks and are better served by a less-restricted device.




LeapPad Ultra XDi

The LeapPad Ultra XD is the 2014 upgrade to the high-end LeapPad tablet for children. It has a larger 7" screen which is the key difference for this model now that the LeapPad3 has Wifi with web access.

The LeapPad Ultra XDi is due for release in fall 2014.

VTech InnoTab 3S Plus

InnoTab Plus Models for 2014

The InnoTab is another kids learning tablet and this is the new version for 2013. It's quite similar to the LeapPad and also gives you access to lots of educational content and entertainment too.

The new models for 2014 are the InnoTab 3 Plus and InnoTab 3S Plus. That one letter 'S' makes a big difference here. The 3S Plus has Wifi and access to curated online conmtent. It also has an instant messaging app that allows kids to communicate with their parents' smart phones.


InnoTab Max

The InnoTab Max is a very interesting new tablet for kids for 2014 - it's due out in the fall, in time for Christmas.

This tablet does what made-for-kids tablets just had to do at some point and runs the Android operating system. This means that it will have access to large numbers of curated educational apps for children.

This removes one of the barriers that people see for choosing a children's tablet rather than a general purpose Android tablet - access to content.

Definitely worth considering if you want a kid-specific tablet that will last your children a bit longer.

Learning Tablets for Kids - Pros and Cons

Learning Tablet Pros

Learning tablets are less expensive than most full tablets

Learning tablets are designed to be easy to hold and durable

There's a good selection of educational titles available

The tablets allow fun activities like drawing and taking videos and they are all easy to access

You can give your child freedom to use a learning tablet and know they can only access appropriate content

Learning Tablet Cons

Learning tablets will only appeal to younger kids - Mom and Dad won't be able to borrow it!

Kids will grow out of a learning tablet faster than a regular tablet (though technology movies on all the time so tablets do become outdated.)

Tip: Buy for your child now (not for the future)

A lot of parents are considering skipping the learning tablets and going straight to an Android device. They are different things. My 4 year old gets so much from his LeapPad2 as it has just the right content for his age.

He uses the Kindle Fire occasionally, but it's not his tablet of choice. When he's a bit older he can have an Android tablet which will have a higher spec than one I'd buy today.

His big brother on the other hand loves the Kindle Fire HD.

Android Tablets for Kids

Fire HD Kids Edition 6" or 7"

Amazon have released a new children's edition of the popular Fire HD tablet this year. The Fire HD bundles together a high-quality, well-specified tablet with a brightly colored protective case, a year's subscription to FreeTime unlimited content and a 2 year warranty which includes your child accidentally breaking the device.

You also get Amazon's multi-user support so the device can be shared between siblings (and borrowed by parents!) The parental controls allow parents to determine which content their children have access to and to place limits on how long or how late children are permitted to use the content.

The 6" version is smaller and cheaper. 6" is a larger screen size than many kid-specific learning tablets have. 7" available for slightly more money and is a standard tablet size.

Well worth considering. For older kids see the new Fire HD range discussed below.

An Android Tablet for Kids

The Nabi DreamTab is the 2014 update to the Nabi range of Android tablets designed specifically for kids.

One thing you need to be aware of with this tablet is that it has a strong tie-in with DreamWorks and their franchises feature heavily. Kids will have Kung-Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, Madagascar, Shrek and Puss in Books content marketed to them. Our kids aren't big media consumers, but these are some of their favorite movies. You may have different views.

The DreamTab is built on the Android platform but have a lot of Nabi-specific features layered on top to provide an experience for children aged from preK-6. It's much more grown up that LeapPad and InnoTab tablets.

An interesting feature of the DreamTab is the Dream Pen stylus for writing and drawing - an accurate stylus is something I've found lacking in other tablets for children.

There's lots of educational and entertainment content plus parental controls, kid-friendly social media and utilties.

Worth considering if you want a proper Android tablet but one that comes pre-configured to allow kids to get he most from it.

General Purpose Android Tablets

Um, son, do you think I could have a go on that now?

Kindle Fire for Kids

The Fire HD 6" and 7" tablets are new from Amazon for the 2014 holiday season and is available in a choice of cool colors. The Fire HD is not designed specifically for kids, but Amazon have lots of kids content and good parental controls. It's an excellent choice for kids once they are able to read and move on from an educational tablet.

For 2014 there's a new 6" model which is excellent value for money. It's very portable and affordable enough that you'll feel comfortable with tweens and teens taking it outside the house.

The Fire tablets run an Amazon-modified version of Android. It offers a selection of apps from the Amazon android marketplace, including kids apps. Other android apps may run on the device, but the Amazon ones are easier to install and many are tested to work with the Kindle Fire reducing hassle.

Fire HD Pros and Cons

Kindle Fire for Kids Pros:

The 6" and 7" screen sizes are good for kids.

There's a growing library of kids books and lots of interactive kids books and comics which may only be available for Kindle Fire (or available there first.)

It's a mainstream tablet with lots accessories and information available and easy access to video, book and music content

It's a proper tablet so adults can borrow it too!

Reasonable price for a powerful tablet.

Kindle FreeTime unlimited is a subscription service for kids with videos, ebooks, games and apps

Kindle Fire for Kids Cons

Parental controls were slow to arrive on the Kindle Fire. It's more expensive than some kids tablets (but has more features.)

Google Nexus 7

Asus Nexus 7 2B32 7-Inch 32 GB Tablet, Black (2013 Model)
Asus Nexus 7 2B32 7-Inch 32 GB Tablet, Black (2013 Model)

My partner has one of these and my kids do use it sometimes, but they prefer the Kindle Fire.

 

Google Nexus 7

The Google Nexus is a high spec Android tablet made by Asus. It doesn't have any features that are specifically aimed at kids and is a full-featured tablet for adults, but it's getting very good reviews so it's an option for older kids and teens particularly. You can install parental control apps to make the tablet more suitable for use by children.

Cheap Android Tablets for Kids

A cheap Android tablet is an option for older kids if you have a tight budget. Just remember they will be cheap for a reason and likely to be less responsive and future-proof than more expensive options. A general purpose Android tablet will require more set up to install parent control apps and you'll want to consider a protective case.

We have a couple of cheap Android tablets that get used by the kids and adults in the house. They're great for situations where you'd be worried about using a more expensive tablet such as on public transport.

One of the issues we've found with cheaper tablets is that the screens tend to be poorer quality which makes it hard to comfortably read eBooks , and that's one of the activities we really want to encourage!

There are lots of cheap tablets that will support Netflix, Skype, and lots of other apps.

iPad for Kids

iPad Mini

The iPad Mini from Apple is a new tablet released in time for Christmas 2012. The iPad Mini is a 7.9" version of the iPad. The iPad Mini is a more expensive option than the other tablets we've mentioned here. You don't get better hardware for your money (some of the Android tablets are very good) but you do get a slick user experience and access to the wide range of apps for iOS.

Don't feel bad if you can't afford an iPad Mini, there are other great choices, but if you can afford it and prefer Apple devices then it's worth considering. It's an obvious upgrade for kids who have had an iPod touch device and are already familiar with iOS.

iPad for Kids - 9.7"

Kids love iPads. Many kids share an iPad with their parents or even have their own. The iPad got a headstart on android in terms of apps and there are lots of fun games and apps for kids available. There are good interactive books for kids on the iPad too - I'm sure Amazon and Barnes & Noble are working on catching up and overtaking here.

The iPad is simple to use, has established parental controls and a head start on apps. It's larger (9.7") screen is a benefit in some situations, but 7" tablets can be better for kids to hold.

iPad for Kids Pros

The iPad is a well established high quality tablet with a good range of titles for kids

There are lots of accessories and cases designed for kids available for the iPad

The forward and rear facing cameras and tilt sensors enable further activities and games

iPad for Kids Cons

The iPad is expensive! If you can easily afford the iPad then fine. But don't spend money on it that you can't afford, there are cheaper options that will be just fine.

A smaller device may be more convenient for kids

Microsoft Surface Tablet

Microsoft Surface Pro - New for 2013

The Microsoft Surface Pro is another new tablet which came out in early 2013. It's not aimed at kids specifically. The Microsoft Surface Pro is a high end tablet with a 10.6" screen so it is more expensive than some of the cheaper tablets we have looked at.

The key advantage of the Microsoft Surface is that is runs Windows 8 and most kids these days use Windows at home and / or school so will be familiar. Think of this tablet as a Netbook / Laptop replacement with touchscreen features rather than just an app and media player.

The Windows 8 version of the tablet has a release date in early 2013 and it's very early days for this tablet. Unless your kids are happy to be early adopters of technology I'd probably wait until mid-2013 before choosing the Microsoft Surface tablet.

Microsoft Surface Pro 64GB Tablet (4GB, Windows 8 Pro, Wi-Fi)
Microsoft Surface Pro 64GB Tablet (4GB, Windows 8 Pro, Wi-Fi)

A larger tablet that runs Windows 8 and has an optional keyboard case.

Good for kids who want a consistent Windows experience with school or home PCs.

 

Touchscreen Desktop Computers

Touch screen Desktop Computer

This option isn't a tablet, but I thought it was worth mentioning the option of a touch screen all in one desktop computer. They are like very big tablets on a stand with a keyboard attached. We have one and my kids (aged 4 and 6) love it! They are so used to phones and tablets that they expect to be able to touch the screen so a touch screen computer makes a lot of sense.

Obviously a touchscreen computer isn't portable like a tablet but is worth considering for use at home. Actually some are portable around the home (with a battery) so they make great home computers for kids who are used to touch screens and portability.

      I really like that big red rugged case on the Nabi 2 and that it has a mommy mode! Right now, my boys use my iPad for the DISH Remote Access app when weâre away from home and it works as a great distraction. They can watch their cartoons live or any of their DVR recordings when weâre out running errands. I keep hearing good things about all of the educational apps available now from one of the moms I work with at DISH, so Iâm thinking about getting my boys their own tablet. I appreciate you putting this list together because there are so many options out there and itâs nice to get advice from someone who knows her stuff!

      Didn't even know about most of these. Just goes to show how much shopping changes when you've got kids. The Nexus, iPad, and Kindle are great "regular" tablets, we all know this. But you gotta have tablets that are also optimized for children. Nice coverage.

      I am trying to decide on a tablet for my 3 yr old. I would love it lean more on the educational side than just mindless games. So I am in between the Leap frog Leap pad, the ematic fun tab, & the nubi 2. I also had a couple q's. Do the ematic fun tab & nubi 2 need to constantly be connected to wifi to use the apps? I would hate for my son not to be able to use his device unless we were connected to internet. Also regarding the leapfrog Leap pad 2 would the cartridges need to be brought with us everywhere or are they installed onto the pad? Of course price is always a big weighing option and id hope that in the long run I would make a better buy so please factor in $ if that is possible. Sorry for all the q's but hope you can help me make a decision :)

      I've found this really interesting... I live in New Zealand and I'd like to buy the Nabi for my eight year old. I can't buy it directly from here, so I have lined up a friend to bring it back for me after a tip to the States, but what I haven't been able to find out, is whether I'll be able to buy new apps on my NZ credit card.

      Can anyone help? I have friends with a Kindle Fire - which you also can't buy here and they've had to set it up with a relation's American credit card, which isn't ideal. I can't do that, so am uncertain about whether it's worth buying? Quite a quandary!

      @anonymous: The software titles for the learning tablets generally have much more content that an Android app that costs a few dollars so you can't really compare directly.

      The advantage of the learning tablets is that kids can be very independent with them - the tablets talk to them and tell them what to do so they can access all the features easily.

      Another point to consider is that the Android tablets will keep getting better so you might want to hold off on a long term tablet purchase for a while so that it will last longer when you do get one. The Nabi 2 is an excellent tablet though so I'd don't think you would regret that purchase either.

      I hope that helps!

      i have a 3 1/2 y.o. son. im trying to decide btwn the Leap Pad 2, the InnoTab 2, or going with something "a little older" in the Nabi2. The Leap Pad & InnoTab get very expensive when u start purchasing all the e books & games - ranging from $10 - $25 each! i heard the nabi apps r free or very reasonable like the iphone apps. is this true??? im afriad he'll go out of the "little kid" tablet too fast. that's y i was leaning towards the nabi. what do u think?? please - all comments welcome!! :)

My children knew how to operate my iphone at the age of 2...that includes taking videos and pictures and attaching them to a text message!! Technology is the way of the world these days. I have 4 daughters- the oldest is 13 and has a Kindle Fire. My twin 5 year-old girls love to sneak it from her room and play on it. I, too, am trying to make the decision between the Kindle Fire and the Nabi. The Nabi seems to be getting good reviews...appears to have more parental controls and durability than the Kindle Fire...these options may be something that you would be particularly interested in. Good Luck and Happy Shopping!

      We have a Kindle Fire HD (for me) and a Coby 7042 (bought in June for the kids to share on summer car trips). Both are great. Love our $110 Coby because when it gets lost or broken, I won't be crying over it, I will just get another one. My kids (5, 7 and 9) prefer my Kindle Fire HD with the brighter screen, but just played Angry Birds Star Wars all weekend on BOTH tablets. Both worked great and my oldest actually spent more time on the Coby tablet because he got to a higher level and wanted to keep going. He didn't want to go back and replay the previous levels on the Kindle Fire HD so he happily used the generic tablet all weekend. For the price I love my Coby for the kids. We use Amazon App store and get all the learning apps and games we need. Use Amazon Cloud drive for music, and downloaded YouTube videos for use when no Wi-Fi available (in the car). With Wi-Fi, Netflix works great. Kindle app too. Even if you have plenty of money to spend, it just seems hard to justify spending excess money on a tablet for kids when the kids (at least mine) are ultimately happy with either one. My kids think its cool to have the 7" tablet for playing games when a lot of their friends are currently stuck with small iPod Touch screens. After Christmas, I am sure that will change as every child we know gets their own 7" tablet from Santa...

      @anonymous: For a durable kids tablet I do think the Nabi 2 is worth the extra money if you can afford it. For a three year old, you may want to consider the educational software on a LeapPad tablet - it only supports its own eBooks though.

      @anonymous: I also have a 10 year old boy who wants a tablet. My experience is that he quickly and easily learned to use our iPad 2, at a level much greater than my own. The iPad is very versatile and I like the ability to control which aps are downloaded. Of course children can surf the web via wifi for school work among other uses. I don't recall if there are controls on email or web browsing. I recommend looking at the Apple Store for refurbished iPad and the Game Stop web site which also offers refurbished iPad, both at reduced prices and warranty available for a nominal fee. I recently purchased an iPod Nano 5th generation from game stop at a fraction of the original cost. It was completely "scrubbed" with very minor cosmetic flaws. I plan to look at Game Stop and Apple websites for refurbished iPad 2. I really don't know about android aps because I am so happy with Apple products. Good luck.

      I have a 10 year old boy who does not want a "baby tablet." He wants it geared towards movies, games, and texting. It also has to be durable, have a camera and have parental controls. Has to be below 250$....Which tablet would be best?

      I seriously never knew that there were this many options for kids' tablets! I think they are a marvelous educational toy/tool for them. Heck, I want them!
