    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.

    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.

    I bought this tablet for my 3 year old grandson. He like it very much. It is already preloaded with games, games that are child-friendly. The only downside for this is that the battery drains quickly. It usually lasts for one hour straight use and you have to charge it. The good side here is that the child can quit, and not play games more than one hour. You just have to explain that it needs to be charged.

    Great tablet for young kids

    It really is perfect for my 3/4 year old. She loves PBS. It has plenty of videos and games for her to play. She doesn't seem to have to much to complain about it. I have noticed that the screen is a little touchy, you really have to hammer on it to pick an option, the back covering on the tablet is a little on the weak side for me. Otherwise its a great tablet. It does what it should!

    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 ;)

    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.

    I bought this for my son a couple months ago when he was 18 months and he's done pretty well with it. It's great, but it's a little tempermental. It charges pretty quick, but it also dies pretty quick. It doesn't last too long, like maybe 90 minutes before it needs charged again. It's a brilliant idea overall, but it needs a little work.

    Holds up well

    This holds up well for my toddler, however the preloaded content is misleading as the 200+ hours are 30 second to two minute clips. I thought there would be some full episodes of shows, so it’s not as useful on long car rides as we had hoped.

    The apps are great for any preschool toddler to get that head start on colors, shapes, animals and so on. Very comprehensive and easy to stay focused with music and expressive talking. Also has various episodes of favorite PBS shows.

    My son enjoys like 5 different pbs shows and used pbs app on my phone.So this tab was a great idea. Bigger screen and you add other play store games to the screen.only reason not giving all stars because when connecting to charger makes a buzzing noise while charging very piercing to ears.

    I like that there are preloaded games and videos. The only thing I would like differently is the charger. Being that this tablet is for kids..the android type charger is flimsy and breaks very easy. Other than that, good product.

    Son needed a new tablet. This one was cheap and kid friendly. Battery life is about 1.5-2.5hrs depending on the app usage. Perfect time for me. Charges relatively quickly. Has a tendency to freeze every so often however.

    I bought it for my 4 year old son. I think that for a child of that age it is excellent. The battery does not last long, but enough for regulated use. A variety of additional games can be added.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 2 year old nephew and he loves it. He loves the PBS app on our phones so this tablet was a no brainer. Easy to set up and use, just wish the case was attached, the blue rubber part comes off if pulled.

    My 20 month old grandson really loves this tablet. Came with several educational applications pre-installed. This tablet allows them to have fun while learning at the same time. The only downfall is battery life however it does charge quickly.

    I bought this for my 8 year old son and he was disappointed to see that the games were more suited for "little kids" (his words, not mine). Fortunately, I could switch to Android mode and download games on a separate field.

    I have a 3 year old son who is very adept at tablets and electronics, and he absolutely loves PBS. What a great combination of the two in this tablet. A little buggy but other than that great product!

    I recently bought two of these tablets as a gift for my twin nephews. They love them! Only problem is that one tablet is experiencing a glitch in one of the games that was preloaded.
