    Great tablet

    This is a great tablet, I know there are a lot of reviews about how you cannot download YouTube kids but there is a way to download Google play which will then allow you to download YouTube kids, I was able to do this pretty easily just by watching a YouTube video about it. The only reason I took away a star is because I don't think the kid part of this tablet is very user friendly, and I had a hard time figuring out how to get out of kids mode and back to regular mode. I also thought Alexa could read my kids books but I can't figure out how to do it, and I can't even find a button for the books to play out loud so if my son goes into a story I end up having to read it but like I said maybe I just don't know how to unlock this feature. Otherwise great

    Overall this is an awesome tablet for my son, we’ve had it for about a month. We have amazon prime and have purchased a ton of movies on there which is AWESOME for being able to download them and watch on long car trips! The only thing I do not like is how “kid like” the kid side is. My son is six and while I want him to have restrictions he is old enough to be able to read things and not just have picture bubbles to choose from. However I can just let him use it on the parent side and it solves that issue.

    I was unsure what this kids tablet would be so I bought it to try and it was not what I was expecting. I thought they would have access to all the apps and games as you would on google play store or apple app store and when in kids mode you do not. It's a good tablet for watching and viewing and playing with good display. The case is nice for drops. I have found that I need to have the child play or watch alot of apps on regular adult mode since access to some things are just not there in kids mode especially if you have a subscription to a tv channel for a show or movie.

    We had an iPad mini for my son to use but had a hard time with him getting out of the apps. With this we are able to download just what he is allowed to watch and play with out any other issues. It keeps him happy he is learning and we love Amazon Freetime! We took a road trip and it was a life saver, best part is he loves to share which not many 2,5yr olds do but he needs so excited to show and share with his friends. Will definitely consider buying another when our 2nd is old enough.

    Purchased for my 5 year old to be able to play games and watch movies on so that he could quit taking over our iPads. This is a great little tablet when you want to control what they see or play. I would have given it 5 stars, but after about 3 days, it completely froze. Couldn't turn it off because it required a confirmation on the screen, couldn't do anything but let it die. Exchanged at Best Buy the next day and the new one seems to be working great. Best Buy was amazing with the exchange and made everything quick and painless!

    I bought this for my grandson to replace one he had that had broken. I like the rubber protective bumper around it. Hopefully this one will last longer. He dropped the last one and something broke internally in it, not the screen so a screen protector would not have helped. My other two grandchildren have one and theirs have withstood a lot of rough play so it might’ve been just the way he dropped it. We will see.

    My 5yr old daughter absolutely loves it! BUT everything you touch automatically downloads. Any child in control of it will accidentally or intentionally click on things that they have no idea about. It is all child friendly thankfully. There are games, books, shows ect. Overall it’s wonderful! It has so many options for kids (all for free the 1st year!). We are very happy with our purchase and would highly recommend. The only criticism I have is the instant touch and download.

    The Amazon tablet has been awesome for my son. It is easy for him to operate and seems to control the content in a proper way. It is a relatively simple interface for him to interact with and the tablet comes with a number of parental controls and other abilities for regulating what is being viewed and for how long. Proper for what we need.

    I now have three of these and they are great for my kids. A quality tablet, the bumper is nice so they dont damage it, and I love that it is fenced in the kids mode so they dont go where they are not supposed to be. My only complaint is that it is locked into the Amazon architecture, and not able to access the Google app store.

    I got this for my 5 year old daughter. She loves it. It seems easy for her to use. I have no complaints with the tablet itself. I don't like the amount of knockoff apps. For example, I wanted to download YouTube kids like I have on other electronics. There's is only YouTube and only knockoff YouTube kids apps. Those knockoff apps are awful.

    I bought this table for my 10 month old daughter. She loved it because of the colorful case and she could listen to baby shark. My problem is the battery I which I could really last a lil bit longer. I wish it had much more games and songs that could be played offline. But overall it’s a good tablet android you child can grow with it

    Bought in his and hers. Pink one for my 4 year old and the blue one for my 2 yr old son. My kids love them. The only downside is they freeze a lot, not sure why but I hope this doesn't affect their functionality in the long run. Other than that our kids are happy and now were free to breathe..

    I bought this Tablet for my 7 year old to watch movies on Hulu or Netflix. Play games, play educational school games and have tons of books. I have amazon prime and love that I can watch free movies or buy a movie and download to watch offline especially during flights.

    Good tablet, but not as easy to navigate as we would like. Comes with a lot of additional "stuff" that's not needed, apps. Got this for my younger sister, who has Downs Syndrome, to play games and to read, and she has a difficult time navigating, though I am happy to help with it.

    If you are Apple/Mac people then this is probably not best suited for your child. I bought this for my grandson who was familiar with Ipads and also Iphones, he as well as his parents and I were unable to understand the operating system and as such I will be returning this item.

    Bought this for my daughter but she was a little too young to use it, but playing around with it myself I could definitely see it as a great tablet for a Pre-K or Elementary aged kid and older with all the kid's preprogrammed functions. Would recommend.

    I got this tablet for my kids and so far they are good. I wish the design was a little more durable and the camera was better quality but it keeps the kids entertained. I don’t like the feel of the case and it gets dirty fast but I guess it does it’s job

    I’m not all that tech savvy, and this tablet is a little complicated for me when trying to use the child’s account and have apps downloaded. My grandson still manages to subscribe and buy games that I have to figure out how to cancel.

    This tablet has been working very good for our 2 year old. We only use it as a last resort but the games are easy to navigate. Only complaint is when in kids mode, it takes some time to switch profiles to be able to watch a movie.
