Ever since the first tablet launched in 2010, it has become a staple in our lives. Kids like it as much as adults, and with the current pandemic, they are even more likely to use it. Before you purchase a tablet for your child, there are some things to consider. You want to control screen time to some extent, which will require some parental control features. Battery life will be necessary, especially if your child is too young to monitor the usage. Durability with young users is critical for the tablet’s longevity. Our top choice is Amazon’s Fire tablet, closely followed by Samsung’s Galaxy model.
