There are 23 games, camera, music, pbs kids scratch junior videos, parents play & learn and ways to customize the dash board. Apps are easily added or removed. I'm looking forward to using this device & finding more opportunities to encourage learning. This tablet comes with a charger, usb cord & instruction manual.

Its alright
So let me start by saying this is just your run of the mill tablet. Upon taking it out of the Box I immediately notice that it didn't feel like a high quality tablet, Which being for kids I wouldn't expect it to be that great. It does come with a lot of preset games and educational material for children on it and I think the best part is is that it comes with a kid safe mode built right in. You can disable the kid mode to use it as a regular tablet but even connecting it to my fast Wi-Fi it is very slow. Even on a full charge the battery does not seem to last very long. It comes with like a weird partial bumper guard that only covers the sides that makes the tablet feel even cheaper and it can be removed way to easily. This tablet Is equipped with in expandable memory slot it also comes with a charging cable And it does have a headphone Jack. Over all if I were to have purchased this item in a store I probably would have returned it within the 1st 2 to 3 days and I would have just bought a better tablet for roughly the same price which probably would work a lot better.

Great alternative to an iPad

The PBS KIDS Educational Playtime Tablet is a great option for parents looking for something cheaper than a traditional iPad to use with their child/children. The learning curve on how to use it is easier if you are familiar with a Google based setup but is not extremely hard if you aren't. You can make multiple accounts for several children. Any app from the Google play store may be downloaded for your child to have access to on their home screen and you can personalize each child's home screen. One of the best features is being able to set a timer for each account to control the amount of time

they can spend on the tablet. You can also set the time frame during which it can be used (ex. 7am to 4pm). The quality of the screen clarity and pictures you take are not as good as an iPad, but for a beginning tablet it is not a bad choice. Currently a 4 year old grandchild has used it but the younger one (1 1/2 yrs) has not, but i'm sure they will be able to use it by age 2. It has already been dropped a few times with no damage. There is a rubber guard on the device. I have had to put it on a few times as it comes off pretty easily. Overall I would definitely recommend this tablet as a great alternative to purchasing an iPad for a child because of the low price, durability and ease of use.

Granddaughter loves it!

My granddaughter,who is two years old, absolutely loves this tablet! It was easier than I expected to set up and start using. She plays PBS Daniels Neighborhood on it. Gets on some educational and fun programs and I love this. I have recommended this to two other family members and I do highly

recommend it.

great kids tablet, works good

this kids tablet is pretty easy to use, it uses google/android so you will have to register this with a google email. you can access the play store on here to add more apps if you want to. there is a parent screen that is password protected, and a child safe mode for just your kid to use. it has around 7 gb of storage, but there is a micro sd slot to add more storage. if your kid is like mine and loves to take pictures you will need more storage. it has all the pbs apps and content already loaded on the game. my son was able to use it right away. it doesn't seem to take a very long time to charge, and the battery life is at least 4 hours, that is continual use. it has a seven inch screen and comes with a blue rubber protector incase of drops. it does also have a reset button on the back incase something happens and you need to reset it. there are a lot of kid tablets out there, but not many good ones, this one is of the better ones, it has worked well so far and my son has enjoyed using it.

Nice tablet

I got this for my 2.5 year-Old. His sisters both have iPads, and he knows how to use one, it I felt like this would be a good option for a younger age.

I love the design, it's easy for him to hold and it seems very durable. He has already dropped it a few times, and you can't even tell.

Function-wise, I like how you can download any app from the Android store. There are a few apps on my phone he likes, so now he can use his tablet to play them instead.

The only downfall, in my opinion, is speed. This thing is pretty slow compared to other tablets, such as the iPad. Obviously this is the case, I expected that. The problem is, my toddler doesn't understand when the app is loading vs whether he just didn't click it well enough, so he will click on an app multiple times and then the tablet seems to get confused because of this.

Overall though, it's worth the purchase at the current price point.

Awesome Tablet, your kids will LOVE IT!

PBS KIDS 7 HD Educational Playtime Kid-Safe Tablet with Android 6.0 (PBSKD12)

This PBS kids 7” tablet is pretty amazing for what it is. The tablet only took me about 5 minutes to setup and to be using it, with an additional couple minutes for one update it said it needed. I was amazed at the ease of use and how the colors and everything was so easy to find use and get interested in. I was lost just being an adult in watching curious George's cartoons to using other music apps and learning what all is on the tablet.

It's definitely safe for kids to use and even the music aspect is of a very good nature, nothing that would set off any alarm bells with me. I am impressed at how just the cartoons catch my grandson's attention and just keeps him entertained while I get other things done at the same time, it's truly awesome! He totally loves it and he throws a fit when I take it away from him, lol another kid's reaction, but I like to limit the times him and my other grandkids can use it.

Overall:

I would absolutely say this tablet is a very sound investment, and it will help teach a child a ton in all aspects of math, science and social skills etc.; along with a ton of other valuable learning aides. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a tablet for any child ages 2-10.

Listed as #1 Educational Media Brand!

Kids Safe Tablet with Android operating system!

100's of teaching moments, apps, music and more.

Math, Science, Social Skills, School Readiness!

Excellent tool to start children on for education, I personally don't think it can be beat!

Super easy to set up and update, 5-6 minutes for me to do with the update!

The tablet is padded with removable pad and is very durable; I expect it will last a very long time.

AAA+ on owning this one, truly don't think you would ever regret buying this kids tablet!

PBS children's tablet

This little tablet looks like is has been built sturdy enough for the accidents that will definitely happen with kids. It is easy to set up. However, it is slow at start up and when changing apps. It is powered by android so you need a Google account to set it up. With that said, you can download other apps from Google play. There are good and bad. It is a great learning tool for a little one.

Great Concept - A Little Pricey

This PBS Kids Educational Playtime Android Tablet is a great idea for a young child...I'd say probably from ages 2 through 8 or 9. Children are very astute about learning how to use a regular computer these days, but this one has parental controls for time limits, content, and for managing applications. This is a fully functional HD Android (6.0) tablet that is more than a play toy for the child. Yes, the child can view video clips, read, sing songs, listen to music, and play games. However, the tablet comes preloaded with educational software, so children can improve their literacy, math, science, and social skills. I was amazed at all the applications that were available on this tablet. This tablet is WiFi ready, has a USB port, and headphones can be used also. There are a lot of amazing features available on this tablet, which is touch screen. You can also upload videos from Kids You Tube, and you can use the Cloud. With a fully charged tablet, there is up to 6.5 hours of play time. There are both front and back cameras, flash memory, micro SD card slot, and a charger.There is also a Quick Start Guide and a Parent Guide. I wanted this tablet so that my great grandchildren can use it when visiting. At first, we had a few problems, but were able to use a paper clip to press the factory reset button. I think this product is a little pricey for a product that seems just mediocre as far as durability goes. I think it could be very useful, but short lived. However, if it piques a child's interest in learning, it would be well worth it. Still, I would look for the item on sale.

Wish it would work right

Really wanted to love this tablet. Such a great idea to have a truly safe kids tablet from PBS. Many wonderful features and the real ability to control all content. I like that you can not only set a time limit but a time frame as well. The bumper cover is a good idea but the 4 yr old couldn't leave it alone and took it off all the time. Biggest problem is the speed of loading content. It can take a very long time and the kids get very upset. It also freezes up just enough to send the kids over the edge. After 3 weeks - the 9 yr old has lost interest, the 6 yr old is too frustrated to play it anymore & the 4 yr old can't really do much on it alone and has lost the case.
