My kids each have their own tablet. I am thankful my kids prefer to be outside playing over television or videos. I have very active kids. Evenings when they are winding down for bed and when we are going on road trips I am thankful for these tablets and that they each have their own. Less fighting, more quiet is good for parental sanity.
Our kids used to utilize our old IPads. However after paying over $100 to replace screens several times, we found a new device that works even better for kids and is cheaper than paying for a screen replacement!
It is the Fire HD Kid’s Edition. http://amzn.to/2v9U9fr
We bought them on Amazon for under $90 each. What’s even better is the new device we are using is guaranteed not to break! They will replace it free if it breaks in the first two years. It also comes with a super tough and durable case. My kids have dropped them more times than I can count and we haven’t had any of the three break yet!
It has parental controls and you can even set things like shut off times on the device. It also comes with lots of free content from Amazon. You can also download movies, shows, and games that way the device can be used without Wi-fi. It is super easy to use, as my 3.5 year old twins can navigate these devices without any help.
Here is some of the info from Amazon about the device including an informative review:
I am thankful they are making afforadable tablets that are geared for kids! It’s nice to know they are safer than using IPads and other devices too.
We bought one over the winter specifically four our drives to Colorado and I just can’t stand it! I can’t get the kids apps to play unless we are on wifi. Which then leads to meltdowns from the back seat ????????♀️. Do you personally run your phone as a wifi hotspot and link the Fires up that way? Help!
In the article I shared a review from another customer. She explains how to active apps and videos by downloading them, so you don’t have to use the wi-fi. My husband did this for our kid’s devices and they work great without wi-fi! Check out the review in the article and give it a try. I hope this information is helpful to you!
