Finally, the under $100 tablet I have been waiting for! I've tried a couple in the past and had difficulty connecting to wifi or downloading games. This is a FULLY functional Android tablet and will keep most kids happy for a long time! Every single app that I can get for my Android Smartphone can be downloaded onto this tablet from Google Play which has THOUSANDS of free apps. Minecraft, Plants vs. Zombies, Cut the Rope, Temple Run, FlowFree, Minion Rush, Netflix, Kindle, YouTube, etc. My daughters even use Quizlet on this tablet for school. Gmail and Chrome work just as you would expect. Surprisingly even has both a front and rear camera. Buy this for your kids for Christmas!
Having said that, it is definitely NOT the Google Nexus or iPad. The screen is harder to read and not as touch-sensitive as more expensive tablets. Being only 4G storage will fill up quickly, which you can easily manage by deleting apps you no longer use. The marketed "parental control" is nothing special, it only allows you to restrict access to certain applications. Much better to download one of the free Parental-control Internet Apps from Google Play, which allows kids to go only to websites you specify and simply uninstall any apps you don't want your kids to have access to (since they are mostly free you can simply reinstall them if needed later).
This tablet is a MUCH better value than the LeapPad. You can customize it for the younger kids with all the games and apps they like, and as they grow older remove those and add in Geography and Language apps to use for school. Besides games you can have your kids use it to track chores, allowance, reading logs, dictionary/thesaurus, read books/textbooks, listen to music, watch movies, create their own videos, the uses are endless!
We also got one of the character kits to customize this with...the best part of that is having the protective case but the character themes are an added bonus my daughter loves!
