FiL wants to get the kids (4 and 2.5) a tablet for christmas, I let em play with the ipad and phone occasionally and they like it. The innotab and Vtech look like more rugged - not much you can do to protect screens tho - but smaller screens for the money, expensive, locked down proprietary OS that we won't be able to do much more with in future and games/software will cost a fair bit (£20 a cart for one of them)
SO are the proper kids ones worth it or should I go with my idea of cheap android tablet, bouncy case, locked down. If so any recommendations for lock down apps? Not used android much so don't know what's around, I'm want to prevent any system changes (this maybe as simple as passwording the OS, dunno) and whitelisting a few websites. Anyone got any suggestions for "educational" apps?
