Tablets are not just for adults. The vast content ecosystem of the Google Play Store also caters for the kids with child-friendly applications, books, and videos. Other than that, the Internet is a good place for interaction, communication, and discovery.

Lastly, we would like you to check out the Nexus (2013) tablet from Google and ASUS. Yes, it’s a 2013 slate but during its era, it’s one of the best tablet and since it’s part of the Nexus line, you’ll get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update immediately. That’s something that most tablet in this range doesn’t have, plus a Full HD display. Its solid build is also a great consideration for thePhp 7,995 price tag.

Google Nexus 7 (2013) key specs:
7″ IPS LCS (1920 x 1200 pixels), 323ppi

Keep in mind that the use of the tablet should still be under the guidance of the parents or guardians. The kids are mostly interested in what the technology has for them and it will keep changing. Let’s also encourage them to play and enjoy the outdoors, but for the indoor activities and media consumption (either educational or entertainment) these tablets are up for the task. Just make sure to buy protective accessories like cases to help prolong the tablet’s life.
