Great cheap children’s tablets

People often ask me, where can I get cheap children’s tablets? I work at a department store so I come across quite a few models. The department stores however don’t necessarily have the cheapest ones so I tend to do my own research with platform like this site where a great comparison is made.

This way, I can see for myself what characteristics work best for children, and I can advise others in how to handle the different solutions that are out there. It’s important for example to look at te screen size. This can be quite different for a toddler than it would be for a nine year old.

Differences in screen sizes effect the overall usability of the child handling it. You can image your phone screen and doing everuthing with your thumb. Some larger screens have hard to reach places on the uppermost corners, even foor your sized hands. Imagine what a toddler must feel like with a very large tablet!

The best thing is to just bring in the most appropriate tablet for the child to start learning with. Swiping comes almost like a second nature to kids’ these days and that might be a good thing. Helping our child progress in life with al the new technological possibilities and everything that is to come in the maybe near future is of utmost importance to their development as they probably will need it in any kind of high paying succesful career.

They should start as early as possible to use it and explore with it, in a safe environment mind you where inappropriate content has been blocked, and learn and grow along with the technology. Hopefully, they can help us evolve sometime in the near future so we as parents don’t get left behind.

So screen size is very important. Another factor to take into account is the processing speed. While most apps suitable for children won’t have to much aof a strain on the cpu, kids these days don’t expect to wait for an app to load or a screen to come up. If it takes longer than a few seconds, they assume that it’s broken and will ask you why it doesn’t work.

That is the state we are in today in the world. Everything is moving so fast that we don’t expect to have to wait anymore. Kids expect the software to have developed as far as to where we can get instant access to everything we want. Waiting for a slow cpu can be frustrating in a world like that.

Elf Adventure for Android

Being a bit of an Elf fan myself, I can appreciate a good children’s game that they can play on their tablet. This time around, I discovered a nice little Elf game called Elf Adventure Calander for Android Tablets.

I like to get my children in the mood for christmas every year because we have a pretty big party that we like to include them in. This way they can live towards the big party with their tablet.

The game is a calander game, which means that every day towards counting down to christmas, a new feature becomes available. In this game, those can be new levels as well as new tasks to perform. The drawing of the game is very funny with those small little elves.

The elves have already done all of their chores and are done with all the gift making and wrapping for this holiday season. Just when they’re about to take a break, they noticed Giant Frost is going to sleep for the winter. But he has to make the snow! What is a christmas party without snow?!? The elves can’t rest until this is resolved, but it doesn’t seem to be that easy 🙂

Kids love to perform these tasks as they progress through the short story. I’d love to see what the creators come up with next year!

First post of many

Hi,

 

I’m a fan…..a big fan of Elf books. And even though I don’t read physical books anymore, I do read a lot of them on my tablet.

I wil try to give you a good description and review of some of the books I read so you can get a clear picture of me and my taste. Hope to hear from you girls as well for some awesome tips of other books I might not know yet!
