If you’re like me, you want your kids to be tech savvy without being overwhelmed. Entertained whilst also being educated. Able to develop their talents and creativity through technology whilst you have confidence that their usage is safe and secure. You want any computer hardware in their reach to drop on the ground without a shatter and frozen screen.

Five Affordable Tablets For Kids

Who makes these tablets and which is the best one for your child? More so, which is the best value for money? Well it really depends on your child, their learning needs and their age.

LeapPad 3

in the LeapPad Series and especially love its rubber casing, knowing that it’d be dropped numerous times by my soon to be 3 year old. I also liked the fact that it came with 10 apps and access to 700+ apps online.
