Looking for a good, kid-friendly tablet for kids? Then take a look here at what you need to consider before buying a new tablet for your children to use.
A tablet for children has become a popular gift for children in recent years. We live in an age where electronics are taking up more and more of our daily lives. Most kids can navigate apps just fine by the age of 2, and mom or dad's tablet is sure to be a hit.

When is my child old enough to use a tablet?
In fact, children can already use a tablet from the age of 2-3. How much they use it is entirely up to you as parents, as it depends on how your child handles their tablet. Some children play with their tablet for 10-20 minutes and put it away themselves, while others need clear rules on how long it is ok to play with it.
Here we've put together a few examples of the best tablets for kids.
Apple iPad mini
The iPad has been one of the most popular tablets of all time, not least its mini format, which in many ways is the perfect tablet size.

Why is a children's tablet a good toy?
Can't he just play with mud, like when Mom was a kid?
Children should certainly have the opportunity to play outdoors, but in fact they can learn a lot from playing on their children's tablet. There are plenty of apps where pre-schoolers can practice counting and playing with numbers and letters. Puzzles are also a great game that strengthens the child's brain.
Kids can also watch their favourite cartoons on a kids' tablet, without mum and dad having to watch the same thing on TV. It's also a great way to sit together and watch a movie or play a game.
Perfect for travel and holidays
Giving your child a tablet can really save a flight or a long drive. So again, a tablet for kids is really handy to have on the go. At the same time, it can be used for other things too, like going online, checking email etc. even when you're away from home.
