Best tablets for kids in 2021

The best tablets for kids are durable, affordable, and versatile. Finding the right one for your needs can be tricky because every kid is different, but in general we look for decent screen quality, excellent battery life, good parental controls, and solid durability (accidents happen!) at a reasonable price. 

To help you decide which tablet is right for you, we tested all of the top devices in our lab and in the real world. In general, Amazon tablets are great for kids and anyone on a tight budget. If you can afford to pay a bit more, iPads are excellent tablets for students and creative kids.
