    My son is 18mths old. He loves this tablet. He gets on PBS kids and he can go on YouTube and play all of his videos. This is easy for him to hold and he just chills in the bed with it. Highly recommend!!!

    THIS IS AN EXCELLANT FIRST TABLET FOR CHILDREN. IT IS EASY FOR MY GRANDSON TO HOLD AND IS DURABLE ENOUGH WHEN HE DROPS IT. IT'S EASY FOR HIM TO MANEUVER TO WATCH WHAT HE WANTS OR TO JUST PLAY WITH IT.

    Its just "ok"

    Since our son loves PBSKIDS we thought it would be ideal. It has hard rubber Bumpers (just in case it gets dropped) which is nice, PBS kids apps and video's (videos do require wifi) - which are already installed and access to the google play store so you can add more apps of your choosing - what more could you want? Oh yeah, it has a camera too. =) Just remember, it is what it is ~ A kids tablet. Don't expect it to be comparable to a Samsung Tablet or iPad. Its probably closer to one of the lower end tablets (in my opinion). It doesn't look great from all angles (screen is low quality), camera is "meh", it sometimes says the memory card is corrupted (a reboot fixes that) and from time to time the video playback can be a little funky (think "stop motion"). Software / firmware / app maybe?? Aside from that, its just ok. It'll work to keep your toddler entertained in the car / restaurant without you risking and possibly destroying "mommy and daddy's" handheld device. I would recommend this to a friend --> *after informing them of its "quirks".

    This is great for older elementary children definitely not 4 and under. My daughter was able to keep going into the adult area with ease which I did not want. We ended up having to purchase a different type tablet that has better parental lock. Additionally I recommend for older than 4 because as a toddler she had quite a bit of trouble navigating through the apps. Ones that were not age appropriate she couldn't navigate out of and got frustrated easily with it. This tablet is not the best without internet access like driving to and from places. I rated it a 4 because its still a good product but just not for younger kids or for the reasons mentioned.

    Best Tablet for my 23 Month Old Daughter!

    This is the first Tablet I have seen that is designed for children, and actually works great too! - Super Durable, and even has an extra safe Rubber Bumper that goes around the outside right through the middle area on the back of the tablet. - Has a really nice games and video and other fun activities software loaded on by default. But, the biggest advantage so far, that I have not seen on any other kids tablet, is its 'Game Mode'. By default, when you enter the kids software section, by starting the children's app on the main page of the tablet, it has really big icons, easy to see, filled with super popular kids characters, shows, games, videos, doodles, etc... --> The BIG Deal! <-- But the best thing is when my daughter touches the android buttons to go back, or to close all open apps, etc... it catches that, blocks it, and puts them right back in the app or game they were playing when they pressed the android button to stop or go back, etc... You may not think that's a big deal, but, because of that feature, my daughter was finally able to make the connection with the buttons she needs in the games and apps, and the ones that take her away from the games and apps. She starting using Tablets (Kids Amazon Fire Tablet with Bumper Case, my iPad Mini when under supervision) at 18 months, and now, 4 months later, and still not yet 2 years old, she knows how to get into games, start them, close them, understand how to play a bunch of them, she does touches, pinches, outward pinches, etc... A Pro before official Toddler-hood!

    Customer support is a joke

    First of all, after a year, the tablet only works when it's constantly plugged in. Second of all, after just over a year, the battery inside expanded, and the back came off. The back now won't go on, and the screen is now cracked. It did this when it was in air conditioning. Now my son is out of a tablet, and we are out the money! Customer service just told me "oh well".

    It is what it is: a device for kids.

    It provides loads of good, safe, educational content for my kids. Not super durable. Cracked the screen on one within a week and the touchscreen no longer functions. We bought it for their homeschooling efforts because it's cheaper than a computer and it runs a few programs alright, but we had to switch up to a computer after all. If you want this device for anything more than the included software, just pony up the money for a better device. Otherwise, it is clean fun education for the kiddos.

    I just bought this for my daughter for Christmas. Only used it a few times, so I'm still trying to figure it out. The battery seems to die pretty quickly, but I think I need to adjust the setting, maybe there possibly a sleep setting so it goes in sleep mode if it wasn't used in a certain period of time??? Will update when I have used it some more ;)

    This tablet is good for toddlers overall. The pre-loaded apps are great and best of all educational. The tablet itself is pretty sturdy. My kids have drop them several times and they are still in good condition. I also like that you can download other apps. The only thing is that you have to use them in parents mode. The resolution is not the best but good enough for your little ones. The processor is kinda slow. It takes long to load the apps. For my toddlers the loading time is a big issue since they were used to speed of my smartphone. Overall is a good tablet for someone that doesn't want to spend a fortune but keep the kids entertained.

    Bought this for my almost 2 year old nephew. Was looking at the kindle for kids then saw this one in the store. He already likes the pbs app so I though this would be perfect for him. I don't care for the fact that it can be used in another mode other than kid mode. I don't know how but even though it is password protected somehow he has been able to switch to parent mode on his own. Other than that I like that videos and be downloaded and he can watch with wifi.

    It's great for a while until you're toddler begins to drop it. I've had it less than a year and it's time to purchase a new one. It doesn't hold a charge for more than 30 minutes anymore and the screen has dropped into the device.

    Perfect kids starter tablet

    Although this tablet runs a little slow, its perfect for kids. It comes with a rubber bumper type case for it included which makes it really durable. My favorite feature though is its special parental controls that allows you to block or edit whatever you don't want your child to have access to and even allows you to set it up so your kid actually has to answer questions in math or any topic you choose.

    Everything perfect in functions ... The only bad thing as in all the electronic ones for children is the duration of the battery ... the children finish them very quickly.

    My son used his in Kindergarten and it was nice. He grew out of it because the school had iPads for him to use. I enjoyed parental controls and it held up great. I still have it and it works great. I would suggest age 2-5.

    I love this collaboration with PBS KIDS. It is built with a camera, App Store, and safari. Internet is restricted for these young kids/toddlers on a plus side. Opening an application can sometimes take time (5-10 secs) to load up. Battery is fair. I allow my son on for 30 mins only. Other than that, my Son enjoys his new tab.

    My son loves this tablet. He has access to play his learning games without the worry of him getting into apps or dialing people. I like that it has a parent's and kids mode on it. On the parents side you can download and give access to certain programs for your kids. Only 2 down sides I can think of is sometimes it will boot into the parent mode and the camera is absolutely horrible

    I went after Christmas to replace my daughter's Nabi, which she loved for about three years. Of course, it was after Christmas and my options were limited. Picked up the PBS tablet because of the price. Very pleased overall. The screen resolution is nowhere near the quality of a Samsung or Apple, but it works for YouTube Kids.

    Had issues with 1st one but brought it back & got a new one. Works good for preloaded PBS stuff & as a "regular" tablet. Nice that it comes with the little bumper. Just need to know that you need wifi to watch the preloaded videos. Not like you can be driving down the street & let kids watch but the preloaded stuff is fun & handy.

    For the price I was happy, she (the five year old) loves it but unfortunately it takes a user manual to figure out a lot of settings.
