What is the Kurio 4S Kids Tablet
This little handheld packs a lot of the power and parental controls of the big brothers the Kurio 7S and Kurio 10S. It has all of the great options at a very reasonable price of $99.
Some of the major differences are the ability to have only 4 profiles active as compared to 8 profiles. You also only get 30 apps included but that is still a lot of premium apps for the price.
The parental controls start with the ability to lock and unlock apps. Next you can set time allowances by profile for each kid. If two kids share this handheld kids tablet then it will let them know when it is time to hand it over.
You also get a kids safe web browser that has 4 settings including: no web browser, parental limited sites, Kurio kid approved sites, and full access. On top of all of this you control which apps are available by profile. Not all apps are appropriate for all ages.
It is run by the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. This is fairly new as only one update has come out since 4.2.
Some of it’s major functions include MP3 Player, Video Player, and Recorder. Your kids can also download text only apps to keep in contact with their friends.
Kurio 4S Kids Tablet Specs
The Kurio 4S is a multi touch 4″ screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Very high resolution for a frame only a little bigger than an iPhone.
The CPU is a dual core Cortex A20 and has a Mali 400 MP2 graphics processor for quality content processing like games, movies, and apps. Quite impressive for a little gadget but higher resolutions require better processors.
It is WiFi enabled for easy downloading and surfing the internet. It is a single band single antennae for average WiFi speeds.
The CPU is backed by 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of memory. It also has a micro SD slot that you can expand the memory by 32 GB. Feel Free to add all your kids favorite movies and music via MP3 and MP4.
It does include 2 cameras, a .3MP front and 2.1 MP rear.

This kids tablet is very new but hasn’t had a single bad review thus far. At first glance I was very impressed with the larger tablets but this seems to outshine both of them as far as quality and parents perspectives. This will get you your smartphone back and allow your children to have hours of enjoyment including educational apps through the Kurio store produced by Professor Nussbaum.
Some older kids may be disappointed that all the games are not accessible without you doing a little tweaking to the software but there are plenty of games including some Cars and other Disney Characters.
For the price this will keep your child entertained and it will be easy to take on the go. This is definitely worth the money and should be considered as a quality option for children. You can view the Kurio 4S Kids Tablet Review in action in this video below.
There is actually a 7″ tablet in the same price range of $100 if that is your budget. The ClickN Kids Tablet also has a great reading program called Looney Tunes Phonics and is an open source Android tablet with Google Play.
