I purchased 2 of these, one for a 8 yo girl and another for my very tech savy 6yo son. Though the little guy might be slightly unhappy bc of the lack of google play, there is enough to keep him happy for quite awhile. In the meantime, for an occasional add of one or two favorites THERE IS A FIX : )
Go onto the browser from the parents desktop and look up the app you want in an .apk format (i.e. littlest pet shop .apk) you might need to look around for awhile to find the proper file. I downloaded 2 that looked like they had the right file extention, then didn't. They are easy to erase, or go around with more software, but I'm not great at this stuff, so IDK how.
Anyway, games are big and I hope to add a SD card soon and expand that way. If it doesn't work, it won't be too bad to add a few at a time and erase as interests change. Kid mode limits a lot of things, but did let me add the new apps I put onto the dashboard to the kid mode wo needing to give them full access to the dashboard in order to play, which was a nice plus for me. It is slower than my $600 phone, yes, but not annoyingly so. It does work best with either your fingernail or a stylus, or in my case one of my kids paintbrushs :) With that, I found the touch more responsive, though it will lag if you are trying to download and navigagte at the same time. I like all the web sites that come up in the kid safe browser. There are many I haven't heard of. For the price, and the age group...well it beats the original nintendo I grew up with :) I would say try it play with it before you give it and if nothing else, Walmart is good about returns.
