I was at first torn between purchasing the Jr or the nabi 2. I have a 4 1/2 year old and just turned 7 y/o. I was intending for them to share. They have already mastered my iPhone and kindle, but I wanted a third device so we wouldn't all be fighting over my 2 (haha#. We've had it almost 6 months and we just love it. Yes, the pre installed educational apps are great but kid geared, however once in mommy mode you can download the Amazon market, and I love that all my apps I already purchased for my kindle can be re-downloaded to this. I've only found one or two that's aren't comparable from my kindle fire. So they have Angry Birds, Temple Run, Cut the Rope, Where's my Water, and all their other favorites. It's got a front facing camera for video and photo. They even successfully video skyped with their grandmas several times! I thought by installing a micro SD card I could fit more apps, but apparently that isn't an option. However, the apps it came with plus the favorite Amazon market apps I loaded are more than enough to keep them satisfied. They are only small children after all, and don't need to be plugged in all day. Also I did successfully load tons of movies we have and mp3 songs they like onto the SD card, so it's an awesome movie and music player. The video quality is great for playing SD loaded personal videos and streaming. The speakers are good but lose some sound as they are on the back of the device and pointed away from the listener. They can also Netflix from it. With other tablets you have to buy a $30 protective case and screen protectors, not this. It's no IPad of course, but it is pretty speedy and responsive. I can surf the net, email, Facebook, Skype, play, read with Kindle or Nook apps, you name it. It's a full out awesome little android tablet for the price. I'm pleasantly surprised. I was a little worried after reading bad reviews, but I think those people just got frustrated and didn't know how to install the markets and apps. It takes some know how. But by googling and using youtube tips, it's doable. I may have to get a second one for my second child. I have 2 leapfrog gaming systems and over 20 game cartridges, which is well over $700!!! These apps are endless and FREE. You won't be disappointed. The tablet itself would be awesome for older children up to teens #heck even adults)! Which was my main concern again as I searched endlessly for reviews of age 7+ using it. I use it myself all the time. This mom gives two thumbs up! :)
