It is well known that children they like them as much or more than we tablets, and the truth is that it is a very interesting option not only for your moments of leisure, but also for purposes educational. The only problem is that of so many things that they can do with it and all the time they can end up dedicating, maybe there is a point where sharing our tablet with them is problematic, so many parents decide to buy one that they can Use only them. The question, of course, is which is the best option, since we find a good number of alternatives in front of us, being the fundamental decision if buy a children's tablet or if adapt for them a conventional tablet.

The best tablets for children

We start by reviewing best tablets for kids that we can find in stores and that share a few fundamental characteristics: a design attractive, an extra resistance and programs of Parental control. On the negative side, the most normal thing is that they are tablets a bit short in terms of technical specifications, although with most applications we will not notice.

Clan Tablet 2

We start with one of the most popular children's tablets, which comes with the seal of the TVE's Clan channel, although in reality it is a child tablet model that Kurio It also markets on its own. The one we bring you in this selection is a new model, more recent than the one that made it famous, although there is not much improvement in technical specifications, but the changes are mainly in the included contents, which are, after all, the distinctive brand of the tablet. It has a screen of 7 inches with resolution 1024 x 600, a dual core processor, 8 GB of storage capacity (expandable via micro-SD) and a battery of 4000 mAh. It should be mentioned that it has its own app store and we will not be able to access those of Google Play.

Mini paquito

If there is a tablet that can compete with the Clan in terms of popularity, they are probably the ones it sells Imaginarium. By price and technical specifications it is very similar to the previous one, although the screen is a bit larger (8 inches) and the processor instead of two cores is four. The main difference, regardless of the design (this is clearly inspired by the iPad mini), is in the contents, that fulfill the same functions but that will not be exactly the same, since here instead of the applications of Clan TV, we have those of PaquitoLand, important detail to consider because we will not have access to Google Play with it.

Wolder miTab Yummy

If the 150 euros of the previous two become excessive, Wolder It has a specific model for children much cheaper (around 50 euros), but it should be noted that the price difference leaves its mark on the technical specifications and, although we may not care too much that the resolution drops to 800 x 480 pixels, it may affect us more than the battery is only 2,200 mAh, which may mean that we have to be charging it with some frequency, depending on how much use it is given, or that it has only 4GB of storage capacity, though, this has an easier remedy, since it has a micro-SD card slot.

Vtech Storio S3

That of Vtech It is a tablet aimed at very young children, and for a slightly older child it doesn't make much sense. The screen is much smaller than the others (with 5 inchesIn fact, maybe it's smaller than our smartphone) and the hardware is even more limited. The advantage that it has is that it does not need any type of cover, since its housing, in addition to being comfortable to hold, is, in fact, of a resistance that not many covers can match. Of course, the contents to which we have access are again only those made available to us by the manufacturer.

Adapt a conventional tablet for a child

The truth is that it is far from essential that the tablets used by children are made exclusively with them in mind, since there are no shortage of options for adapt a conventional tablet for them and it doesn't even mean that we are going to spend more money, because there are tablets with very affordable prices that can serve us perfectly as a base and there are also covers, essential accessory, quite cheap. We are also free of the limitations regarding being able to download content from conventional application stores, which is something we will surely appreciate.

The best options

We begin to see what are the models that could serve as a starting point, and for this we have started with a selection with 3 Android tablets of walking prices between 100 and 150 euros, although we can not fail to mention the always desired iPad. Of course, we can find even cheaper tablets and, in fact, we have at your disposal a compilation of the best options we have to buy us a for less than 100 euros. You just have to keep in mind that, in addition to some more limited technical specifications (although still quite decent and certainly at the level of children's tablets), we will not have so many accessories from which to choose, which may be something more problematic, for example, when complementing it with a cover.

Fire HD 6

One of the best options for a child is the Fire HD 6, so much so that it is the model on which Amazon It has been based to create its specific tablet for children, which is currently not sold in Spain. Even without the extra contents of that edition, it is a perfect device for them, with a size that makes it very manageable and a very good construction, which makes it a pretty device resistant even before putting a cover. Even being cheaper (99 euros), the hardware is much better than in the previous ones (more powerful processor, screen of 1280 x 800) and the only thing we lose is that the cheapest model only has 8 GB of storage capacity, without the possibility of expanding via micro-SD. If we are willing to spend a little more, we also have a 7-inch model that is worth considering.
