Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
My three children are ages 9, 7 and 6 and they love tech products……in fact, they are usually able to show me things that I didn’t even know about my own tablet. In the past, I always made sure to watch over them whenever they were playing with any of my devices because I was concerned about them having access to inappropriate content. That is why I was so excited to discover the latest kids’ tablet, Little Scholar® by School Zone. What makes this tablet designed just for children ages 3-7 so exceptional is that it comes pre-loaded with a whopping 150+ educational apps that are all age appropriate. It features learning games, videos, songs and e-books for preschoolers, kindergartners and first graders focusing on core subjects such as math, reading, spelling, logic, creativity and geography.
I home educate my children so it is always important to find good quality educational resources. Since technology is becoming increasingly necessary in the “real world” I make sure to incorporate this content into our curriculum. We have been using School Zone workbooks for years and I have always been impressed so I was quite pleased to learn that the Little Scholar content is the same high quality. My youngest son, Jacob is entering into the first grade and Hannah is going into second grade. Jacob immediately got excited to try out the tablet and even Hannah found it to be a wonderful way to practice her learned skills over the summer break.
Little Scholar is an exceptional tablet that doesn’t skimp on the quality of the device with an easy to use 8-inch screen and it runs with a Google Android™ 4.2.2 operating system. It includes a camera, good sound quality and since the apps are preloaded it is easier than ever to get started….no painstaking downloads and expensive additional apps to buy like other product brands that I have purchased in the past. That will definitely bring us significant savings over time. I also appreciate that it has password protected parental controls so it eliminates the worry that I have to constantly watch over them while they are playing.
My children were immediately drawn to the colorful, fun graphics and really like the characters from Charlie & Company™. Jacob and Hannah both report that the games are “lots of fun” and I often find them curled up and practicing their early reading skills with the interactive eBooks created by educator, Dr. James Hoffman.
Since they have starting using Little Scholar, my children often ask to play with this device instead of their other computer games and tech devices. I am delighted that they are having fun while learning important early learning skills. It is obvious to me that School Zone put a lot of attention to all the details of this wonderful kids’ tablet.
