iDeaPlay Tablet – Fun & Educational Tablet for the Holidays!

I love my Kindle. I love my iPhone. I love my iPad. Sadly the kids all love them too, but my devices are not made to take the beating that kids tend to dole out and not only that they’re set up for me and not kids. It’s amazing the things that a kid can find on YouTube or just the internet alone when left to wander aimlessly around.


With all of the tablets out on the market there are only a few that are really focused on kids and their needs. When I was given the opportunity to take a look at this new tablet I jumped at the chance and I have to say that I was not disappointed at all.

This tablet has tons of features that will keep your kids as well as you entertained for hours! I was able to easily download Netflix and a couple other apps that are my favorites as well ones that my tween daughter likes.

If you’re wondering…. Yes, I would definitely recommend this tablet if you are looking for one for your kid for Christmas.

Couple of things though. It did take me a few minutes to figure how to turn it on (then I realized it needed to be charged first) and weak battery about 3.5-4hrs of moderate usage. Like any new device though you just need to get used to it, how it works, and the interface.

I found it very easy to play the games that were included, search the store for more games for my kids, and get them installed.

    I have been seriously considering this for the boys. I like so many things about it.

    Hope you’re having a great week!

      I’ll be honest… I didn’t let the kids try it out because I want to save it for the holidays. But I know that they will love it and I think your boys will too! And at the $99 sale price it’s really affordable.

    I remember when Kid tablets didn’t do very much!! We are looking for one for our son now, and this looks great! I don’t mind a weak battery bc my kid won’t be playing it for long periods of times… :)

    Hi Jackie!

    I’ve been wondering about this device! How is the playback when watching Netflix? Is it slow? Does it skip a lot?

    Sounds like a fun tablet. We just use the ipad and an Asus tablet for the kids since they only use it i the car on trips or when we are around and we just installed safe browsers.
