Kids Tablets to Buy (or Avoid)
Tablets are a convenient way for kids to learn how to use technology, play the latest mobile games such as Angry Birds Evolution and stream movies such as The Lego Batman Movie or Moana, 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 the locked levels in Super Mario Run or view mature content they're not ready for. Some of these tablets even include durable cases that make them easy for tiny, slippery hands to grip.
Amazon's just announced a 2017 version of its 7-inch Fire Kids tablet and an entirely new 8-inch model. We haven't reviewed the updated 7-inch Amazon Fire Kids Edition ($99), but if it's as good as its predecessor, which featured excellent parental controls, a great no-questions asked 2-year warranty and access to thousands of books, videos, educational apps and games, it'll keep its spot at the top of our chart.
