Children never stop hankering after parent for new gadgets, but considering how they do their best to snatch your iPad, an affordable child tablet could be a good buy. Although purchasing a second- or third-hand original iPad is also a workable solution, a better solution would be to choose children-specific one. The new Archos Child Pad is arriving in the market with the revived Alvin and Chipmunks theme.
The unique tablet comes in a lightweight and compact design, not to mention run on the decent 1GHz single-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) should be a good platform even for children.
The Archos Child Pad support casual, kid-friendly Android games, including Angry Birds series and Fruit Ninja. It also features a six-month parental control system for safe browsing. The redesigned UI features colored folders and icons that provide instant access to e-books, apps and games.
The 4GB of built-in storage should be enough for dozens of apps and some cartoon clips. Also, parents would be pleased to know that the tablet costs only $129,99.
