The Top 5 Tablets Of 2017 For Kids


These days everybody is connected to the internet through some way or the other. Even the kids these days have a tablet and a smartphone and they’re very well versed with using those, more than you adults. It’s not just the adults who are addicted to their smart devices, their kids are equally addicted to it, if not more. But choosing a device for your kid can become a bit difficult. You have to keep a few things in mind, like the safety, usability, and affordability. Today, we present the 5 best tablets of 2017 for kids

Amazon Fire HD8:

The first tab on the list of our best tabs is the Amazon Fire HD8. The tab has a good value and comes with loud speakers. It has dual-band Wi-Fi and is very easy to use. The Amazon Fire HD8 is highly focused on Amazon services. But the tab has no native Google apps or services and has a poor camera. Amazon’s latest Fire HD 8 tablet is a great value for media consumption. But you’ll have to live without access to Google Play

Amazon Fire:


Second on the list comes the Amazon Fire from the same Amazon family. This tab has a fantastic price and a large content ecosystem. It has good parental controls and helpful technical support. The performance of the Amazon Fire is pretty good. But it has a somewhat grainy display with a lackluster camera. The 7-inch Amazon Fire tablet doesn’t offer high-end specs or the latest apps. But it’s the best way to put a wealth of multimedia content at your fingertips for an almost unbelievable $50 price.

Asus ZenPad S 8.0

The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 has a sharp display and a powerful processor. It has a USB-C connector. This tab is relatively affordable. The problem with the Asus ZenPad is that it has a mediocre battery life and bloatware galore. The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 strikes a good balance between price and features. It has the kind of performance that expensive Android tablets offer.

Fuhu Nabi Elev 8:

The Fuhu Nabi Elev 8 has lots of preloaded content for kids. It comes with a grippy, protective rubber bumper. The tab has good speakers and a long battery life. But the tab has lackluster cameras. This tab is a suitable tab for your kids, considering its features. But the hardware doesn’t quite measure up with other tabs for the grownups.

Verizon GizmoTab:

At the end of the list, we have the Verizon GizmoTab. This tab has good parental controls, child-friendly software, and protective case. It has a crisp screen and a solid camera. The GizmoTab comes with good network performance. It offers dual-band Wi-Fi and expandable storage. But has limited internal storage and some uncomfortable button placement. Also, the tab lacks 24/7 live tech support. The Verizon GizmoTab comes with child-friendly software and accessories. It’s a good kid-specific tablet with cellular connectivity, this makes it a favourable option.


If you’re buying a tablet for a child, you’re probably looking for different things than with a grownup slate. We hope the above mentioned list helps you in buying a tab for your kid.
