There aren’t many Android or Apple tablets out there that come with the pink color variant, which are designed to be attractive to kids. Kids love the light colors, especially the pink, yellow and blue ones like the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition, Kurio Tab Advanced and LeapPad3 as well as the LeapPad Ultra XDi’s casing.

However, looking at eBay and other online retail stores we found an abounding number of 7, 8 and 10 incher tablets with pink casings and are heavily marketed for children! But let’s look inside first if they are really kid-friendly devices or just some second rate knock offs.

Why Kids’ Tablets have to be Different from Those for Adults

I think I speak for everyone when I say that the primary reason why we allow children to enjoy having a handheld device like a smartphone or a tablet is because we want them to be educated by it and enjoy using it for games and leisure.

Tablets that are designed for adults would have no parental controls or restrictions in viewing or accessing inappropriate content, which in due course might damage the child’s mind and have an adverse effect on his/her development.

If They were Not Designed for Kids, Can You Customize Them?

The answer to that question is a definite, “yes” and you can install enough apps to limit your child’s access to the web, although I highly recommend that you sit down with your kids and guide them as they study, watch movies or play mobile games.

That’s because it helps develop a stronger bond between you and your children. Here are some good parental controls apps that you can find in the Playstore and the App Store that you can install in your kid’s tablet to make it more child-friendly.

And remember, tablets and other gadgets are basically like crystal meth if you do not control how your kids use it or how much time they spend using it. This article will explain the link between addiction and modern handheld entertainment devices.

So make sure to limit your kid’s use of the tablet (or any other electronic gadgets) to a maximum of 2 hours a day. It would be better also if they’ll not use it every day and you can encourage them to do other healthy physical activities to help in their physical and mental development (e.g. play games out in the sun, play scrabble and chess, learn how to hike and camp, learn how to sail, etc.).

Android HD Tablet 7 Inches for Kids

As seen here, this pink tablet would be very appealing to children between 4 – 9 years old and as edgy as it looks it didn’t actually come from any known brand. In fact, this tablet could be considered as “generic” as it doesn’t even have a brand name!

It’s just an Android-based tablet that has good specs and dynamic colors to it. Upon reviewing its product details it was quite clear that the manufacturer didn’t really geared this device towards the benefit of children, instead they’ve just labeled it as “for kids and adults.”

However, since it is an Android phone, then that means you can access the Google Playstore and download a couple of parental controls apps to make it kid-friendly.

Ainol AM-7C08 HD Kids Tablet

Shenzhen Ainol Electronics Co., Ltd is the manufacturer of Ainol tablets and other electronics devices and it looks like their AM-7C08 model is quite promising and it’s also pink, but it also comes in a yellow color scheme.

This tablet makes the phrase “child-friendly” an understatement as you can see here the protective rubber case alone is extremely appealing to toddlers and young kids!

You won’t even have to tell your kids to use it to watch animated educational videos, or learn school stuff, no, they’ll beg you to let them doodle with the Ainol tablet, because it’s so adorable to play with it.

Besides the well-thoughout kiddie design of the tablet plus the rubber protective case it also features a plethora of kids propreitary software which are both educational and fun that your children will love.

Ainol decided to put the 3000 mAh battery on this tablet despite it being only in the 7 inches range (most manufacturers could only put a 2500 mAh battery), but has proven to be useful as it gives kids more time to use the tablet compared to other tablet brands of similar size and specs.

Specs:

  • Brand: Ainol AM-7C08
  • CPU : RK3126C ARM Cortex-A7 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
  • GPU : MALI-400MP2
  • Displaying Screen : 7 inches HD IPS multi touch capacitive touch panel, 5 touch point
  • Resolution : 1024 x 600
  • Memory Size-RAM : 1GB DDR3
  • Memory Size-ROM : 8GB internal storage + an expandable slot microSD up to 32GB
  • Operating System : Android 7.1
  • Camera : Built-in Dual Camera (front 0.3MP and back:2.0MP)
  • WiFi : 802.11b/g/n

The Takeaway

These pink kids tablets are not what you’ll usually find in popular American smartphone and tablet retailers or online stores, but just because they are made from unpopular manufacturers in China, Australia and elsewhere doesn’t mean that they’re not quality.

Their rubber protective casings and pre-installed kiddie apps are the real takeaways when compared to the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition or other tablets that were designed for kids, because their specs are quite similar, although Amazon and other manufacturers have the advantage of having their own cloud services like the Amazon Appstore.

Still, making a side by side comparison will make anyone choose the China-made tablets when price becomes the ultimate factor in the decision-making process of the customer.
