In the consumer electronics world there are two types of parents: Those that are interested in buying tablet computers for their kids and those that are staunchly opposed to doing so. For the latter group, a large part of that rejection comes from price. Electronics are, after all, pretty expensive. Considering how often kids tend to drop or otherwise destroy things, spending hundreds of dollars in a device that may before long be destroyed isn't too bright of an investment. Price-wary parents should be soothed, however, by the fact that, like most things, tablets vary greatly in price. Here's a list of seven kid-friendly tablets ranging from under a hundred dollars to five hundred bucks.
Launched in 2010 for the Wii, THQ's uDraw tablet is making a push into new audiences with its latest revision, which adds support for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Ideal for those who already have access to the consoles, the uDraw tablet lets kids interact with games via its stylus and touch screen. Featuring motion controls, touch input, HD output, and over two-hundred points of pressure sensitivity, the uDraw tablet is pretty capable for a device with its price.
Dubbed the "learning app tablet" VTech's InnoTab takes the app approach and tailors it especially for kids with its 5-inch screen. Featuring interactive e-books, learning games, and a variety of other creative apps, the InnoTab is a capable tablet with a price tag most parents won't be afraid of.
