It’s not as hard to find tablets for kids with WiFi under $100 anymore. There are a handful of options these days and I’m going to give you the skinny on them. You can also read full reviews of all the kids tablets with WiFi at my website so you can make an informed decision of the best tablet for your child. These tablets are generally designed for kids ages 3 to 9 years of age and that is the focus age group of the content that is included.
This is a handy little 5″ kids tablet not only has WiFi but is also an Android tablet that has access to thousands of apps through the Amazon store. It runs the 4.0 Android OS.
It comes loaded with the Wings program that has educational apps and games for kids that adapt to your child’s skill level. It also has a beautiful little swivel camera so your child can take photos and videos from the front or back.
Another cool option with Wings is your child gets coins for completing task on the games that they can use to buy new games and apps to play and learn with. You get 30 apps to start with and a nice little bumper case so there is no need to purchase anything else with this tablet.
It also comes with 16 GB of Ram and an expandable memory slot that will give you an additional 32 GB of memory to load movies, music, and store photos and apps. You can also manage your kids progress on your computer and set parental controls on the Nabi JR. You can also read a full review on the Nabi JR here.
Not nearly as powerful as the Nabi JR but at $30 less it’s still a nice little tablet for kids. It has half the memory and RAM but does have an expandable memory slot up to 32 GB as well.
You get several free educational apps and popular games like Cut the Rope and Angry Birds. The educational app Zoodles has won several awards with teachers and parents for quality of the content.
It has a single rear camera that will do video as well but really isn’t great quality and is less than 1 MP. There is no front camera.
This will serve as your child’s own little smartphone so you can have yours back. It has a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of flash memory for storage.
It also comes with a kids safe web browser that you can connect to your network for easy downloading options or even pre-approved website for kids to view. This tablet also runs the 4.0 Android OS.
Another option is the Polaroids 7″ kids tablet. It is also run by the 4.0 Android OS. You get a 10 free interactive books through nook and 16 preloaded games for kids. You will also get Music Studio, Kids Vids, Lullaby, and Draw apps.
The Polaroid Kids tablet has a 1 GHz processor with 512 MB of RAM. It has 8 GB of internal memory and can be upgraded by 32 GB as well.
It also includes WiFi and a mini USB slot for charging or connecting to your PC. The rear webcam is 2 MP and takes both photos and videos.
This tablet also has parental controls and is controlled by an app that limits what children have access to. You can download from the Amazon store which will give you access to thousands of Android apps.
I have read several reviews from parents and all except one loved this tablet and that parent had a tablet that froze. Not sure if Polaroid replaced it but I’m sure it fit under the 1 year warranty. Not as fast as an adult tablet but very functional and durable for kids.
Another option is the Ematic FunTab and is almost exactly identical to the mini version but is 7″ and slightly more expensive. You can read a full review here and it can usually be found for under $100.
