What is the Kurio 7S Kids Tablet
The Kurio 7S is much like it’s bigger brother the 10S. It has all the same parental controls like 8 profiles for each family member, internet browsing controls, and app controls. You can even break it down by time period and say profile A gets use from 6 pm to 7 pm and profile B gets use from 7 pm to 8 pm and then decide which days to do this on.
It has over 60 apps included with the tablet and some of these are educational apps by Professor Nussbaum. He is a leading expert for educational material for children. You also get popular full versions that won’t include a bunch of advertisements like the lite versions have.
Another great feature is the web filtering and you can assign 1 of 4 different modes for each profile. They have included no use, parent approved use, Kurio pre filtered sites, and unlimited access.
It runs the 4.2 Jelly Bean Android OS and can be used much like any other Android tablet. You can use Netflix and download other popular apps available on the Google Play Store or Android Market that have been formatted to the Kurio Tablets.
Kurio 7S Kids Tablet Specs
It has a 7″ multi-touch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The processor says multi-core which doesn’t mean quad core so is probably a dual core and I have not seen any testing that supports an actual GHz speed and Kurio does not offer that information.
It does have 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. You can expand this by 32 GB with a micro SD card.
The front camera is .3 MP and the rear is 2.1 MP. I tend to think these front cameras are the leftovers from last years models.
It has WiFi via single antennae and single band. Not particularly fast. iPad’s run dual band. Kindles run Dual Band and dual antennae.
The sound is created by 2 front speakers or a standard headphone jack. Nothing special about the speakers but they are not scratchy or of poor quality.
The rechargeable battery is a lithium ion and you should get between 5 and 8 hours of use depending on what you are doing with the tablet. It is designed durable for all family members and comes with a bumper case.

This is actually a pretty good bounce back from the first generation models. I think they kept the same cameras which is a little disappointing but for $150 it is hard to get everything you want. It’s not the fastest of kids tablets but for the value it offers great usability and would definitely be a good option for the whole family because of the versatility of the parental controls for different age groups and the web filters.
Some alternative options in this price range that would be great for the whole family is the Nabi 2 and the Kindle Fire HD. Both of these run a little smoother. The Nabi 2 is very comparable in Parental controls and has the best processor available in a kids tablet. The Kindle Fire HD is the best content player available, from sound to screen it is more beautiful than an iPad Mini.
Be careful when purchasing this tablet as there are multiple versions and I will leave a link to this newest model. When researching on Amazon I saw previous models going for more than this newer version.
