This is an above average kids tablet. They have upgraded the quality of many components and it performs much better than the previous model. There is a beautiful screen and it is larger than the normal kids tablet(7″). This tablet is going to move much smother than its predecessor.
The durability will be questionable with the thin case. If you purchased this tablet I would invest in a better case. You can also find some stylish accessories with this tablet like the headphones.
There are lots of available apps and many free lite versions that are riddled with advertisements. You will also have some options for educational content and story books through the Tabeo Store.
It has been loaded up with a newer version of the Android OS and would play almost any game available today. It also has a nice expandable memory card option so you won’t have to manage memory space.
My Full Video Review of the Tabeo e2 Kids Tablet
You can find current bidding and lower prices at eBay
I have had an overwhelming amount of email and comments on the website and YouTube channel about the parental controls so try these 2 things first.
1. Set up mobile parental filter on your PC first. http://mpf.profiltechnology.com
2. Watch this Video on the parental controls. It shows you why the apps you download are not running, why you may be having trouble with downloading the Amazon AppStore, and some features of the parental controls.
3. If you did a factory reset and need the apps restored to your tablet this is the page where you can download the PC file and get instructions. http://m.toysrus.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=13311971
