Samsung Galaxy Tab 3kids This is a very good tablet. I bought it for my 6 year old son for Christmas and he loves it. As well as playing his favourite apps, it's good that we can put in a passcode and go to the parent zone where you can control how long they spend they spend on the tablet , as well as being able to download apps from google play store, which you deem appropriate. There is also a kids store, which has quite a few free apps and there are loads of educational apps also. 08 January 2014
Fantastic for Kids, and Peace of Mind for Parents This "Kids' Edition" Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is a really good purchase to consider for any parent considering buying a tablet for their children. Boasting exactly the same specifications as the standard 7 inch Tab 3, this special edition also gives parents much greater control over what content their children access, and when they access it. The full Android operating system and Google Play Store are present, but can be hidden beneath a very child-friendly overlay, with access only available to adults. Parents can easily restrict internet use, app purchases and much more - right down to how long the device is active for. Furthermore (and unlike many other tablets aimed at childen), as your children grow, you can remove the bright orange case, place it into a more grown-up one, and remove the kid-friendly overlay to turn this into something virtually identical to the standard "grown-up" Samsung Tab 3 - the only difference is that this tablet is yellow. This really sets this device apart from its competitors, as kids are much less likely to grow out of this - instead it grows with them. Admittedly, the standard version of this tablet is cheaper, but the accessories that come bundled with this help make up the difference in price, as well as the addition of more comprehensive parental control settings. All in all, a really great product for parents and kids alike. 19 December 2013
Great Kids Tablet WOW, firstly john Lewis again are just great value for money, I love john Lewis and they really are now offering the best deals out there. The tablet is amazing and Samsung products are very good value for money. I have just bought this tablet for my sisters children for xmas, I know they are going to love it as it has been made for children .The apps are just wonderful and everything is so easy for the children to use , grab yourself a bargain at this price as others are still charging £50 more >Tony E15 17 December 2013
Great for kids Tablet has been well thought out. Parental controls allow only specific features as required and the whole product feels very firm in the associated children's holder. Set up was easy, very impressed with the product. 10 December 2013
Fun tablet for whole family We have bought this as a gift for our 5 year old daughter for Christmas. Therefore this review is based on my experience not hers. Firstly this is basically the galaxy tab 3 with a separate kids mode, but much more fun with its yellow colour, orange silicon case, blue bumper carry case and stylus. Then again you can buy the regular galaxy for around sixty pounds less, so depending on the age of your kids something to consider. What you do get is control. You get to decide what things they can access from the kids mode and when or how long they can use the tablet. There is a dedicated kids store (like play store) with both paid and free apps. However you can transfer apps from the play store onto kids mode. I have done this with angry birds. You can also put google chrome (full Internet access) email and you tube onto the kids mode if you are happy to do so. So I assume you could put on Skype as well. There only appears to be a single kids mode, so not ideal if you want two or more kids to share. Also the background music plays when on the home screen, which will probably get annoying. There is a kids camera with special effects in kids mode and the usual Samsung camera in standard mode, but I think the quality is poorer in low light levels in kids mode, so I have put the regular camera into the kids mode as well. Does video as well. This does not support adobe flash, but apparently there are similar apps on the play store. The reason I mention this is because my daughter likes to play the games on Disney Junior and cbeebies, some of which use flash. The good thing about this compared to other "kids" tablets like the leapad and innotab, is that this will grow with your kids well past the age of 8 or 9. Take off the orange bumper and the yellow tab would be fine for an adult or teen to be seen using. The normal operating mode is the same as you would find on the regular galaxy, so very versatile. I am sure any kid would love this. 25 November 2013
