My daughter is obsessed with PBS Kids, she loves all the shows, Wild Kratts and Daniel Tiger are just two of her favorites! PBS Kids have brought out a new tablet that is perfect for some downtime, your kids can sit and relax, watch some PBS Kids and do some coloring and learning activities.
The tablet comes with over 25 games for fun and education installed, there are 120 PBS Kids Video clips, Songs and more with over 100 hours of video! My daughter will sit and go through the many different activities herself, she loves the tablet. One of the most important things to me when it comes to kids and internet is parental control, luckily the Playtime Pad has built in options to control your kids internet usage, if they are a little older you can unlock the internet browser, google play store and more. If you don’t want your child having access to any of that you can block the usage, you have full control over everything.
The tablet is Wi-fi ready and it supports Bluetooth, you can also set a time limit for your little ones. When setting up the tablet, you are asked to enter your email address and you can create separate accounts for all of your children. You can also set different limits for each individual child! The tablet also comes with handy side grips that act as a bumper should the tablet be dropped.
My daughter loves to take selfies, even though she is only 3, I think she learned that from me, (Guilty!) and she loves taking pictures of everything so the dual camera really comes in handy!
One hundred percent of the net proceeds PBS receives from purchases of the PBS KIDS Playtime Pad support the PBS KIDS mission to help all children, especially those at risk! The tablet is great for after school activities, learning from home and for a little entertainment and downtime!
