- leap frog or other tablet for my 4 year olds
Leapfrog tablets have pretty limited appeal for many kids, they can see straight through the edumacational stuff. Ours would rather use a proper tablet or phone. Did get our 5 year old a V Tech innotab, doesn’t get used much and the quality isn’t great, he uses his mums galaxy tab 2 more. The other ones 9, did think about getting her a tablet, decided on a Kindle for her which has worked really well, she reads alot.
In your position I would get a proper family tablet, probably not an ipad, kids can use it but you retain control. You may end up getting 2, we did.Posted 4 years agooxym0r0nSubscriber
Girls are coming up to 4th birthday and oh is looking at the leap frog for educational games etc. We don’t have any other tablets in our house, so wondering about getting something I can use too.Posted 4 years ago
Anyone else done this? Any recommendations for games? Lots of the ones I have found on google play seem to be UScentric with an annoying accent…loddrikMember
My girls are going to be 4 and 8 in November. Both getting ipad minis. Not altogether comfortable with the 4 yr old getting an iPad but if the eldest gets one then nothing else would do, especially as their birthdays are on the same day so they’ll open them together.
Tbh they’re always on my ipad anyway and both have ipod touch’s so its kind of the only logical step really. I’d have looked at a nexus 7 but we are all tied in to ios so it makes more sense.Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
My girls had leap pads when they were about 4 and they loved them. Games are very simple but kids don’t mind that. They are now a few years older and still occasionally play with them. They do chew through the batteries though so get some rechargeables.
I won’t get them iPads for a few more years yet, though they have access to mine.Posted 4 years agodudeMember
We bought our son a cheap android tablet for his 4th birthday. He uses it a lot, playing games and stuff on it. And we can put youtube vids of cartoons on it for him. Got a couple of different drawing apps on it as well, and it is doing wonders for his hand – eye coordination. Plus the school he goes to uses tablets as well, so it has got him used to operating some of the basic stuff on them. We looked at the price of kiddies tablets, but looked at the price of the games to go with it and decided we couldn’t afford them.Posted 4 years agoclubberMember
My son broke two more expensive tablets…
I got him this in June for his 5th birthday for £35
It works well and it hasn’t broken. I won’t be spending more on a tablet until he’s a fair bit older.
I use the kid mode app by zoodles to control what he can access and that works well on this tablet as well as my phone and tablet.Posted 4 years ago
