Customer reviews and score 

The Kurio has shown some strength in its specifications that benefits from Google’s neat and simple menu layout designs. Websites or apps can be clicked without hesitation because of preset limitations. Powered by Intel®  the device allows quicker video and photo, music streaming, fast downloading, gaming and web surfing.

Although the bundled case isn’t without its blind spots, the Kurio Xtreme 2’s bigger strengths come from its consistency. With its excellent build quality and steady battery life, the Xtreme 2 provides the reliability needed to be a top kids tablet. Source.

Overall the tablet has a nice feel about it. The buttons have a satisfying click to them and the screen feels solid without too much flexing. There is a slight, hollow feeling to the back of the device, but this is mainly because the removable back panel.

Even though this device is custom-made for children, it does not take away the fact that it performs excellently. But it seems that it is not kid-proof which parents are looking forward to see. This device got 3 out of 5 stars. Source.

Conclusion

A device like this is every parent’s wish come true mainly due to the limitations which they can set for their kids. Donning an expensive price tag may worry other moms but as its features speak louder and larger than the device itself, I think it is a good catch. But to those who want to look at other types of tablets, check out some brand models that will suit your taste, your kid’s taste, and your budget. That’s when you start comparing.

Vuru A33 8GB Quad Core Touchscreen Android For Kids Review

Once in awhile we would get an offer we couldn’t resist. In this case, it’s a tablet that fetches for a very low price, so low that our suspicions get triggered. But all of the features are there; It’s kid friendly, nice compact size of 7 inches for the screen, dual cameras, even pre-installed with the basic apps. Not to mention that it comes in several colors.

However, this is where we possibly should inspect the quality a little bit more closely. The mentality is that, if something is expensive, then you know they spent on quality, b but when a product is cheaper, then there must be something wrong about it.

Not always the case, however. We have found products that would be truly affordable and yet satisfy our standards. Those are products we look out for; the good buys. Only after scrutinizing the features and offerings of the product should you decide if it really does fit the bill for a good buy.

The Vuru Tablet would suit a child’s needs possibly because of its 8GB internal storage capacity. The tablet is also good for adults alike, as the only difference would be that on a child’s tablet you would download and set up parental controls. Vuru has pre installed apps, but they are in the form of Skype, Netflix, Google Play and Chrome, which, in the exception of Netflix and Skype, are pretty much standard in most android versions. This one runs on Kitkat.

Vuru also claims quality materials in the making of these tablets, making it ideal for children and adults alike. The 8 GB internal memory may not satisfy a lot of grownups that use lots of social media or memory hungry applications, however, and the 512MB RAM may not be fast enough for a lot of applications.

The size of the tablet is convenient. 7 inch tablets are small enough to fit a woman’s handbag, and even people’s pockets. Yet they are big enough for you to view the screen with ease. This unit will also work in the absence of wifi, as it is compatible to 3G. The way the tablet is being sold is as a kid’s tablet, where children don’t have much demand for performance and speed, however. But it would be the perfect size for small hands to handle.

Again, the fact that you have both wifi and 3G options for internet connectivity is convenient, as whenever wifi is absent, you can rely on your data plan to connect to the internet outdoors. The device is indeed designed for communication, having pre-installed Skype, and equipped with dual cameras. No doubt that that was the purpose of such arrangement.

If you’re concerned about the 8GB storage capacity, the memory is expandable. Should a child indeed use this, there can be enough space for a lot of videos and photos. It is presumed you can expand the memory up to 32GB.

The feedback it gets from people are very mixed. As I’ve mentioned in the beginning, when a product is as low priced as this one, you’re not paying for a high-end or feature-rich model. The low RM and storage space for this device is not satisfying for adults, so it’s safer to say, this will be better for kids to use. Install a parental control app on it like Zoodles, and you’re good. It’s a useful kids tablet, no doubt.

Customer reviews and score

Some users say its battery life is on the lower end, it has no HDMI port for TV or monitor connection, and has lower quality graphics. However, it is very light, loads fast and they like its expandable storage.

The Google Android 4.4 KitKat delivers many more new features. Using the emoji icons, your conversations will be more interesting. Voice search, open or save files on Google Drive etc provide good convenience. This makes it one of the diverse devices in the market with a low price tag. Who says that you can never own one? Source.

The tablet’s screen is decent for this size device, but it’s not the brightest nor the sharpest screen that I have come across. It features two cameras. They are good enough for taking spontaneous casual shots, or for Skypeing. Source.

Conclusion

The Alldaymall 7-inch tablet is a decent find for a low price. Reviews are mostly on the positive side that overshadows the negatives. Unlike other models that may give you a heart attack waiting for it to load, this device is just what everybody else needs. Good value for money is all what it seems to be.

What customers have to say about the camcorder:
“I wanted to get my 5-year old daughter a tablet of her own. She likes watching movies and playing games on my iPhone, but that just seems like mindless entertainment for the most part. The app store has lots of content (perhaps too much!), and I did not have a way of determining which had real educational’ value and which were just fluff. So, off looking for a kids’ tablet I went.”

“I am VERY happy with this leappad. My daughter had the leappad 2 which after while did not hold a charge. She loves the leappad Ultra. My son who barely touched his leappad 2 is now requesting a leappad ultra because he says its wayyyy better. My son is 7 and my daughter is 6 leappad is very age appropriate and do not think youre kids are too old for them because theyre not. I think parents tend to want to push for their kids to know too much in such a short amount of time. They have the rest of their lives to learn, what is the rush? Any way review over and now I am ranting. Lol. I love the product and will be buying my son one soon!”

“Perfect for kids who want to use a computer or tablet on their own. They can’t accidentally get into anything that isn’t designed for them. I got these for my children when they were 2 and have continued to upgrade (because we like to not because you have to) over the years. Most of the games are backwards compatible and easy for even a 2 year old to use. There are also apps that sing educational songs, play tv episodes from leapfrog and some nick jr. and read along books that require no interaction for younger kids. Most of the games we have are adaptive and automatically adjust to their playing level.”

“I have got to say I am really impressed with this tablet. It is so neat! The quality is way more than expected. The silicone case fits great and protects the tablet very well. The stand is cute and is great for watching movies. The tablet has great video/camera quality. It takes nice clear photos. The games are perfect for children. There is the usual fun ones, and lots of learning ones.

My video goes into more detail. The setup is simple, and quick. I had charged the hours like directed, and the battery life lasts a long time. I have yet to have to recharge it. My kids are going to love it. I personally have 2 other tablets that are not for kids, and they are not near as good as this one.”

“I bought this for my four year old and it works great. I love the battery life on this thing as it doesn’t eat up battery life while in use and it stays on wifi when in use. The bumper cover is a plus and the camera works great. It comes with a wall and usb charger. It has a quick boot setup that only takes a couple of seconds to boot. The controls are user friendly and comes with a variety of widgets. This tablet also comes with security features that any parent will love. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.”

This package comes with a colored silcone case, a mesh bag to carry, wall charger, USB cable, and a cute bear stand to set up for your little one. So far everything has been easy to setup. This table is based on an android tablet but with a simple feature called kids place to lock out the stuff you don’t want your little one getting into. If you can get an app on Google play then you can have it on here.”

What Customers Say:

“I’m impressed. This is the first Leapfrog tablet I’ve purchased. I’m not tech savvy and it was a breeze to set up and hand over to the children. It came in uncomplicated packaging and directions. The tablet comes with green rubber cover and attached stylus pen. I was pleased with the parental control settings. The hardest thing to do was to decide what extra learning games to buy. They are expensive but it helped that we purchased a $20 digital download card for half price. We have 7 children with the oldest being 11 yes. He even enjoys some of the activities and is able to brush up on his multiplication/ division skills with the math games. We are pondering over getting a second one so the others can have their own profile (Three on each tablet) Having two would also enable them to “text” each other or play certain games together if they are in the same room. It’s nice to know that you don’t have to purchase duplicate apps for an extra leap pad. The children are quite pleased with the photo/video taking abilities and voice recorder as well. I appreciate that they are able to explore safely.” – by Buggy
