This is the first tablet I have ever used. I loved the size because I could easily put it in my purse and not feel like I was hauling something bulky around. I have an android phone, so I am familiar with Android apps and technology, and this was just as easy to use. We right away downloaded some of our favourite apps to try out, including Angry Birds, Twitter and Facebook.
Kid Mode was the favourite thing for the kids. I was able to set up an account for each of them, so that they just had to click on their pictures (which were silly pictures we took with the tablet) to go to their accounts. Kid Mode automatically sets up each child’s page to suit their ages, so that there were age appropriate games and activities for each child.
The thing that I liked the most about Zoodles and Kid Mode was the report that I got in my email box each week. It showed what activities they did, showed me the pictures they made in the art pages and shared which stories they read. Here are some reports from Avery and Griffin’s use for a week.
There were story books for the kids to read or have read to them in Kid Mode as well. Unfortunately, most had to be purchased so they only got to hear the free ones. Griffin just loved scribbling with the pen in the art zone. He liked the games as well, and could be occupied for long periods of time with this tablet!
I found it easy to type on the touch screen keypad, loved the camera and I really like that it can be used as an eReader as well. I used it to browse the internet and check email all using wifi. The battery needed to be charged daily, but that was with the kids taking turns using it, and my husband and I trying to find a turn whenever they weren’t looking.
If I were purchasing a tablet, this is definitely one that I would consider, particularly because of Kid Mode and how much the children enjoyed using it.
