Have you been trying to avoid buying a tablet for your unruly kids because you’re worried they’ll drop and break it? Well the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is designed especially for the little people in your life. The 7-inch device is embedded inside a rugged bumper case that will keep it protected, and it comes pre-loaded with a ton of kid-friendly content.



A mobile phone in the hands of your kid can be a liability. But it can also be guardian angel — it all depends on how it’s used. MobileKids is a free iPhone and Android app that enhances a phone’s guardian angel-like qualities while putting the liabilities on lockdown.

I’m sure you don’t remember, but back in March, ARCHOS announced a budget Android 4.0 device for kids called the ChildPad. Fast forward to today, and it’s now finally available for purchase. The ChildPad allows parents to give their children the educational and fun experience of a mobile media device without having to break the bank or their personal high-cost device.

Welcome to Monday’s Apps For Kids, a new Cult of Android feature where we take a look at kid-centric apps. Many of us are parents with kids who seem to know their way around our mobile devices better than we do. With the Google Play Store having over 400,000 apps, it can be quite a daunting task trying to find apps appropriate for our young tech enthusiasts. With Monday’s Apps For Kids, we hope to make that task easier by suggesting an array of topics and apps that have been kid tested and parent approved. So grab whatever crayon is lying around and get ready to write down a few apps worth checking out.

Unfortunately, it’s not sensible to simply hand over a $400+ device to our little mayhem magnets. If only there were a cheaper alternative to ease a parent’s fears and still provide the functionality of daddy’s device. Well, Archos may just have the device to fill these needs. Introducing the Child Pad, a 7″ Android 4.0 kid-friendly tablet at an affordable price.
