    We bought the Kurio 7s for our god daughter for her 8th birthday she had been asking for an ipad which I think cost a bit much for a young kid, we came across this & felt it was perfect especially because it has parental control so my sister blocks what she doesn't want her to use or come across inappropriate stuff on the internet. Another great thing it has a timer so when she is told she can only use it for a certain amount of time it locks! And it has a password so only we can unlock it & set the timer again. She also likes the games that come with the tablet built in a few educational games also, also liked the fact that it has a slot for an SD card to add more memory she loves taking pictures now I can print them out for her easily. So far its been a great investment worth the price plus we paid extra for warranty but the durability seems pretty good for an active child.

    The best thing about these is the parental controls. I have watched my kids play with these for hours and I have never seen them on anything that is not safe. I watched my son use an iPad for less than 5 minutes and he was able to get to some really awful stuff in that time. He is 5 years old... These tablets are really good value for money and my kids love them. Wouldn't recommend for over 10 years old due to filtering... You can turn it all off, but then you would be better off buying a regular tablet that doesnt have all the safety software in the first place.

    I love the Kurio for my 5 year old son. He loves all the games and E Books. I love how user friendly it is, and it is wifi capable which is a huge plus. My son can watch NetFlix on it as well. It's great for a kid learning and wanting to learn more. I recommend this to any parent for their child although the Kurio is one the whole family will love and enjoy! I especially love how it has option of parental guidance where the parent can control what their child views on their Kurio.

    I purchased this tablet for my godson's 3rd birthday, and he absolutely loves it. There are multiple apps available to download (various educational and recreational games). This tablet is also easy to maneuver. With a pretty lengthy battery life, my godson is able to use it for hours at a time. This was a wise investment and the cost wasn't too bad either. Now I'm able to use my phone and tablet without him asking to play games.

    Bought this for my 7 year old for Christmas. She has been able to use it easily. We set parental controls to only allow use during certain times of the day certain days of the week, which was very easy to do. However, if you don't actually turn the device off, it records that time as in use even though it's idle. Tought lesson to learn for a child. Still having an issue with the App store. Haven't yet tried dowloading movies, books, or music.

    Not great for kids

    Unfortunately this "kids" tablet is loaded with tons of advertisements. For a decide geared towards children, we are constantly dismissing ads that pop up in the pre loaded games. If we don't dismiss them in time, our child has usually pulled up content we would not want them to see. A kids tablet should not be allowed to put ad banners or pop ups on all the screens. It's ridiculous.

    I purchased this tablet for my 7 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it. We also love it because with the parental controls we have peace of mind that she won't be exposed to or be able to access or download inappropriate content. Also, it allows us to limit how long she is able to play to ensure she doesn't become too dependent on this and inactive. Great source for games, streaming content, and educational content.

    Was told by BB employees that we would be able to do all this stuff on the tablets. We weren't able to do any of the things we specifically asked they would be able and were told yes. Wouldn't stay charged for very long. And when they were charged would turn off in the middle of trying to use them. Apps didn't work great. Unable to add more apps or get internet access from tablets. Felt like the kurios were being pushed on us by employees. We returned them and bought kindles instead.

    We bought this for our 5 year old grandson. I was worried at first that he was to young for a tablet, but the Kurios 7 is perfect for him. His mother was worried that he would be addicted to it , but most of the games are educational . I loved the fact that it came with all the preloaded games! We loved this tablet so much that we bought another one for our 6 year old grand-daughter for Christmas. It's a very kid friendly product

    I recommend this tablet for your toddlers than sacrifing your Kindle or iPads to them. My son is 2 and he has done more things on this tablet that i never knew you could do on a tablet. Definitely preoccupies the kids. If you have more than 1 kid, buy 1 for each kid so they wont fight with each other.

    I bought (2) of these for my 7 & 8 year old sons. My 8 yr old is a little more tech-savvy than the 7 year old, so he was actually able to delete several of the preloaded apps & has only his preferred games. However he deleted the app that allows Kurio specific games to be downloaded. Overall, if you want something that can keep your child occupied, has lots of free apps and comes with Parental controls then this is a great device.

    Extremely happy with our choice. There are 3-4 options for a young childs' tablet. I hate apple products since they are not the mainstream with school or business. This is a great educational and fun toy at the same time. We have since bought a second Kurio for our son. Parental controls are awesome features. We can control time limits, and web access better than on our tablets.

    Got this as a gift for my 4 year old. She loved her new computer. It took me about 45 min to set up owner/parrent account and register on the kurio app store but you can use the google play also. The educational apps on kurio app store are only a few bucks each. If you have multiple kurio devices registered to the same parrent the purchased app can be loaded on all of them.

    Either two bad units, or design flaw

    I have been through two of these tablets, and both have an internal RF interference problem. The tablet will generate a great deal of static over its speakers when using wifi, and distort the sound greatly. The static was driving me nuts, so returned the device. (think of the sound unshielded speakers make when you place your cell phone next to them.. that is the type of static coming from the speakers)

    We wanted a tablet for our son. We travel to California often and wanted something to entertain him. An iPad was too expensive and we didn't want something cheap so we found the kuruo. Best investment ever. My girlfriends bought the kurio for their children after seeing how much our son loved his. Great product!

    The tablet is cute, my daughter used it for few months, then it started overheating, Kurio team did not help with answers, and it did not work anymore. Besides you are looking to protect your kids with a friendly device, you have more options with a mini iPad, and If you want you can protect them..

    My Grandkids love them. They do everything that a tablet should do but yet you can ad restrictions so they don't get into things they shouldn't. Myseven year old downloaded a free texting app so she can text me goodnight everynight. Love it!!

    This tablet isn't the worst, but it's definitely not the best either! I ended up returning it and purchasing another Samsung Galaxy tab 3. ( the yellow one designed for kids) It was very slow and unresponsive. Now for an older child, like 8-10, with more patience it might have been okay.
