Which tablets would I not recommend for babies, toddlers and toddlers

These tablets are very good in themselves, even for children. But the features are too extensive and they are not user-friendly enough for babies and toddlers toddlers to be able to use.

iPad Mini

I also bought an iPad mini for my older children for a while now.

It really is a more expensive purchase, but at some point the kids just want a little more, especially when they don't have any toddler more and also start playing games on it and the like.

It really costs a lot, but they certainly enjoy it! (you can find it here).

New ones come out every time so it remains a good tip year after year of course.


The iPad Mini 2 is one tablets in every sight.

Although it features a 1024 × 768 resolution and a retina display with Apple's brand tag, the iPad Mini nevertheless landed at the number five position in our list of the best tablets for kids.

And that has to do with the price.

Also read all about it the best choice as an iPad for your child

Device Colors and protective cover

iPad Mini is available in 2 colors: black and white.

Although it does not come standard with a protective cover, there are a variety of options available to make an iPad Mini 2 suitable for a younger user (see also the photo).

It is not specially made for children, but due to the meadow support there are plenty of options to make it child-friendly.

Specs and construction

With a weight of 331 grams and dimensions of 7,87 "x 5,3" x 0,29 ", it is slightly thicker than the iPad Mini.

The extra weight is hardly noticeable. Equipped with a retina display, the iPad Mini is easy to use for extended periods of time.

If you have the money, the iPad mini 2 is of course a beautiful device, and one that can last forever toddler until a much later age because they can do everything on it.

I got mine picked up here at

Colors and Screen

Given that Apple is marketing itself as a premium tech brand, it's a setback that the iPad Mini's resolution is just 162 ppi.

Even budget tablets such as Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7 have a better pixel density.

Compared to its predecessors, the iPad Mini is sharper and characters and lines are no longer blurred and the retina display is of course sharp in every viewing angle.

Cameras and ports

With a 5MP iSight rear camera capable of recording 1080p video and an improved and better version of the front camera, there is noticeably less noise in the photos, even if they were taken in the dark at night.

You also see a clear difference in photos due to the presence of the retina display when you look back on the apple itself.


Having a 64-bit 1,3 GHz dual core processor with A7 processor chip and an M7 motion coprocessor helps to extend battery life when using a fitness or activity tracking app.

As usual, Apple hasn't revealed the RAM in this iPad, but this is quite a bit faster than the iPad Mini and all the other kids' tablets on this list.


iPad Mini 2 comes with iOS 7 and entitles you to iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand etc. It is a beautiful tablets, don't get me wrong.

It is actually not really made for children at all.

If you were already going to buy one for yourself, you can also give it to your child, but realize that you do not have any protective rights in the interface as with the other tablets in our list.

Just because you can buy a soft rubber case in cheerful colors doesn't make it one tablets suitable for children.

And it's actually just way too good and too expensive for kids tablets, but you can do a lot with it.

VTech InnoTab Max


The 7th and last from our list is the VTech InnoTab Max.

Because it is a direct competitor of LeapPad3, especially with its comparable price at the time of review, you will also be able to compare it best with that.

It is a tablets specially made for children with built-in child-safe features.

Unlike LeapPad3, you can add your own movies and music to InnoTab Max.

Many customers rate it as the best choice for their younger children (read them here).

They will outgrow him at some point, but then you can switch to the Kurio Tab, for example.

Device Colors and protective cover

InnoTab Max comes in two colors: blue and pink, nothing surprising.

The cover protects the screen and also acts as a stand for better viewing angles while you set it down.

The mentioned protective cover can be removed if you like a classic one tablets keeps.

Weight, dimensions and build quality

Weighing about 1,3 kg with dimensions of 15 "by 11,1" by 2,3 "and a hard build quality to meet the purpose of being suitable for children.

Colors and Screen

With a resolution of 480 × 272 for a 4,3 ″ single-touch capacitive screen, the resolution isn't as great as you'd ideally like, of course, but the same is the case with most of the kids' tablets.

Like the Leapfrog, the screen uses LCD and there may be a problem viewing colors if the tablets is not held directly in front of you.


With a processor with a speed of 360 MHz and the internal memory of 4 GB, there is no such delay while using the pre-installed apps.

But at times, you might experience frustratingly long wait times.


The InnoTab Max assists a child with simple math, English and pattern recognition with among other things games that are present to increase a child's spatial sense such as observations etc.

The InnoTab Max is best suited for children between the ages of 3-6 years.

They also have fun and creative games and an excellent messaging feature that kids will enjoy.

Although it is sometimes slow to load, it is a good choice for a young child's first computer.

Amazon Fire Kids


Named as the Best Budget Tablet and is also very affordable. Since its release, the Amazon Fire has been the go-to choice for many customers. 

Although these tablets from Amazon are based on Android, they are not really complete Android tablets. 

They do not have a Google App, but you can use Google services through the Silicon Web Browser. 

On the other hand, the Fire's relatively inexpensive format is much cheaper than other tablets with similar specs, but you also see advertisements for products on the lock screen.

Device Colors and protective covers

The tablets Amazon Fire comes in 4 colors: Black, Tangerine, Magenta and Blue. 

All buttons and ports are on the top so it's easier to access them even when the tablets connected to the charger. 

The cover of the case folds easily to stand as a photo stand and you can use the tablets in either horizontal or vertical manner. 

You can buy Amazon's official cover for your Amazon Fire for an additional cost and it is available as an add-on on the product page.

Weight, dimensions and build quality

With a weight of 313 grams and dimensions of 7,5 x 4,5 ″ x 0,4 ″, it is a small alternative. 

Although the build quality doesn't really feel good (what do you want for that price) the device still looks modern and stylish.

Colors & Screen

fire Tablet comes with an IPS screen, so you don't necessarily have to keep it straight to see the colors clearly. 

With a resolution of 1024 × 600 for a 6 ″ screen and with a density of 171 ppi, the colors look pretty good on the screen.

Cameras & Connections

It features a 0,3MP front-facing camera and a 2MP rear-facing camera. 

Together with the internal 8 GB of storage space that you can also expand to 128 GB of external storage by means of a micro SD card. 

It also comes standard with a single-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and a mono speaker with a built-in microphone.


The 1,3 GHz quad-core processor and the 1 GB RAM make it faster than you expect. 

But with the limited amount of RAM, you have to be careful that too many apps at once or too big apps will be too heavy a burden. 

The battery should last up to 7 hours.


Software in such a device is as important as the hardware. It therefore has the Fire OS 5, which is loosely based on Android Lollipop.

This allows you to share user accounts just by tapping the user icon on the lock screen. 

You can set up an account for your child and the tablets then gives one excellent control to monitor your child's use as a parent.

You can set goals and maximum usage time per day.

Pre-installed apps in this one tablets are very good. 

For example, it has Alexa as standard, a cloud-based voice service where you can directly ask questions and perform searches, and Amazon Underground, where you have access to thousands of free apps and games (even the paid apps on Play Store are free on Underground. which is a big extra advantage).

The gaming is of course not like you on a Nintendo Switch tablet, but you wouldn't expect that from any specific one tablets.

Together with the great flexibility for the parents and extensive time control that you can set, it is, together with all its features, the number one of the best tablets for children in 2017 in this price range.


So, this was our list of 7 best children's tablets for toddlers and babies.

Feel free to ask if you have any doubts about anything and I hope to have helped you on your way in the jungle of choices.
