Kids Tablets to Buy (or Avoid)
Tablets are a great way for kids to play games such as Hearthstone or stream the latest seasons of Star Wars Rebels, but you can't simply hand your new iPad off to Junior and not worry. Without solid parental controls, you never know if your kid will wind up buying a ton of characters in Crossy Road and or end up on inappropriate websites. Some of these tablets even include durable cases that make them easy for tiny, slippery hands to grip.
Some kids tablets offer the type of premium performance that mom and dad have come to expect, while others are best left in timeout. After playing with just about every children's slate out there, here are the ones you should buy and avoid. Our top pick is the Amazon Fire Kids Edition ($99), a 7-inch slate with excellent parental controls, a great no-questions asked 2-year warranty and access to thousands of books, videos, educational apps and games.
