BEST TABLETS FOR KIDS IN 2012

As more and more families pick up an iPad, Kindle Fire, or one of the other tablets on the market, kids are becoming exposed to them on a daily basis. Kids love cell phones but they REALLY LOVE TABLETS!

I think it is only a matter of time before tablets replace text books in school. What do you think?

When you watch a child use an iPad and you will see how focused they can get playing around with them. Its great that there is something they can have fun with and learn from too. Lets hope our educators and parents figure out ways to get kids interested in actually learning from these tablets rather than just wanting to play games with them!

What I’ve done is try to find your choices for kids tablets in 2012. Some of these are for younger kids and some are for older children. I’ve found using Amazon.com to get reviews is one the best places where you can be sure the reviews are honest. That and the fact that it is such a popular site means there are usually more reviews for products than there are on other websites.

Here are what the Amazon reviewers are saying about some of the tablets for kids that are on the market today:

Vtech – InnoTab Interactive Learning Tablet

Target age: 4 to 9
Cost: about $80 on Amazon (blue model and pink model)
The Vtech has around 400 reviews which average out to to about 3.75 out of 5 stars

LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet

Target age: 4 to 8
Cost: about $100 on Amazon (green model and pink model)
This is a VERY popular kids tablet with over 600 reviews combined for both colors. The reviews average out to about 4 out of 5 stars

NABI FUHUNABI-A 7-Inch 4 GB Tablet

Target age: 4 to 12
Cost: $200 to $300
These are a bit hard to find. They are real Android tablets that can cater to young kids and older ones as well. They have a mode for the parents that can be used to check email etc. This tablet has just under 20 reviews that average out to 4.5 out of 5 stars

Kindle Fire

Target age: Child to adult
Cost $199
Not much has to be said about the Kindle Fire as right now, it is the only serious competitor to the iPad and for a fraction of the price. There are about 16,000 reviews on Amazon and they average 4 out of 5 stars. The only place to get the Fire is here on Amazon.

 Nook Color tablet from Barnes & Noble

Target age: Children to Adult
Cost: $169 to $199
The Nook Color is only sold on Barnes & Noble’s website and it gets a 4 out of 5 star rating with over 1000 reviews. The Nook is perfect for kids who like to read but it is more limited than the Kindle Fire.

MOTOROLA XOOM Android Tablet (10.1-Inch, 32GB, Wi-Fi)

Target age: Child to adult

Cost: around $420 on Amazon

The Xoom has over 600 reviews on Amazon which add up to 4 out of 5 stars. This tablet should be able to do most of what an iPad can do at about 80% of the price.

Apple Ipad

Target age: child to adult
Cost: poke around on Amazon to find a better price than on Apple.com
You can buy the original iPad and the iPad 2 for reduced prices now. The newest iPad costs $499 for the cheapest model. Unarguably, the iPad is the leader of all tablets and both kids and adults love them. You can’t go wrong getting an iPad but for younger children they are probably too expensive and too breakable.
