Gianna started Kindergarten this past August and I have to admit…she is advanced for age. She was recently tested and is basically at a 2nd grade level. One of the reasons she is advanced is because we have always provided her with plenty of educational toys and games.
Recently we were introduced to the Little Scholar® tablet from SchoolZone. This tablet is jam packed with 150 educational apps (including videos, songs and e-books), valued at nearly $400 worth of FREE content. Little Scholar provides its users with lessons based on all of the “core curriculum” subjects for preschoolers, kindergartners, and first graders, including math, reading, spelling, logic, creativity, and geography.
Parents can use an App management tool to choose the apps, music, and e-books that are active on Little Scholar, so they can tailor the content to fit the learning needs of their children. Little Scholar was made for kids 3-7 and features an 8-inch screen and runs a Google Android™ 4.2.2 operating system.
We received a complimentary “Little Scholar” tablet from SchoolZone to review for all of you and let me tell you this…it is one IMPRESSIVE kid’s tablet! The set includes the “Little Scholar” tablet, power adapter and instruction booklet. kids tablet with games

Gianna knows how to operate a tablet as her mom & dad have an iPad and she is always on that playing various educational games. We spent about 10 minutes showing her how to operate this one and then she was ready to go on her own. Matter of fact, she pointed out a few things to us that we didn’t know ourselves!
This is a touch screen tablet with a front and rear facing camera. There is a Micro SD Card Slot should you want to increase the memory at some point in the future. You can control the volume and there is a headphone connector port should you want peace & quiet when your child is playing with the tablet.
The icons on the main screen are pretty easy to understand. The child can click on the camera (for video & photos), click on the guitar to listen to music, the books icon to read & listen to ebooks and so forth. All of the apps are broken down into grade levels…Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade. Gia mainly hangs out in the First & Second Grade Apps since they are geared towards her level. If you want to purchase additional apps, you can do that by clicking on the app store icon.
One of Gia’s big interests right now is “reading” and we are grateful that she loves to read!!! There are plenty of great ebooks on this tablet and she will sit for hours just reading them! Another thing she likes to do is play with a few of the math games. Math is another school subject that she loves!
This tablet is extremely well-made and I can see why Creative Child Magazine gave it the Preferred Choice Award. Well-deserved! You can learn more about this fantastic tablet by visiting the company’s web site. What a great holiday gift!
