There is nothing worse than buying your child a big gift and then finding out the toy or gadget doesn't work well or doesn't do what you want it to do. Just because you don't have a lot of money to spend doesn't mean you still can't get a good tablet for your kid.
You actually do have more than one option for an Android tablet that isn't expensive but still works great and has nice features for kids.
The Best Cheap Android Tablets for Kids That Are Worth Buying
FastTouch 7 Inch Android Tablet 4.1
Although this tablet is not specifically for kids, it is one of the best tablets you can buy for under $100 (sale price). I actually recommend buying this tablet over one that is made specifically for children because it will work better and there are tons of apps that you can download for kids that will make it educational and fun for them.
This tablet has everything you would need for your child. You can access the web, play movies, read eBooks and choose from a huge library of Android apps that are geared towards children. It is the perfect size for kids and is lightweight and you can always buy a cover for the tablet if you are afraid of your child damaging it.
The tablet has built in wifi, a dual-facing camera, the latest popular apps and comes ready to use. The item does come with a stylus pen but it is not a must that you use it. It is super user friendly so kids shouldn't have a problem learning to use it quickly.
Contixo Kids 7-inch Touch Screen Android 4.1 Tablet
If you are looking for an inexpensive tablet that is specifically for kids, then this is your best choice. You can buy this tablet for under $100 on sale and it is especially made for children between the ages of 4 – 12 years old.
The tablet is preloaded with apps that are just for kids and best of all the tablet will actually grow with your child. Your child can use it when they are 5 and still get use out of it when they are 10. There are curriculum programs for grades pre-K through 6th grade and parents can track the child's progress as well.
There are also other fun apps such as drawing, popular games, fun educational games, and puzzles. Kids can also access the internet, watch movies and TV, and read eBooks with the tablet. Parents can also control what the child has access to on the device. It also has a camera so that kids can take and share pictures as well.
When buying this tablet you do have to keep in mind that it is specifically made for children and that you do get what you pay for. Don't expect a high quality tablet for this kind of money but it definitely does do the job if you don't have a lot of money to spend.
It has a rubber protection case that comes with it and is available in green, blue and pink.
With how popular tablets have become you don't have to spend a ton of money on a device for your kids. There are plenty of options for inexpensive Android tablets for kids but I would definitely recommend the FastTouch tablet as one of the best.
