Video: Testing tablet computers for kids

Consumer Reports News: January 18, 2012 08:53 AM

Since the Apple iPad first shipped in 2010, tablet computers have been hot. Much as adults love them, though, children may just love them even more, as tablet-owning parents can verify.

Recently Fisher-Price, LeapFrog, Vtech, and Vinci came out with tablets created just for kids that feature at least some of the capabilities of real tablets. Consumer Reports tested tablets from each company in our lab and with children within the manufacturer-recommended age ranges to see how well they work and whether kids would enjoy playing with them. Our video shows how we tested and which products came out on top. And you can get more details from our full story, Review of tablets for kids, at ConsumerReports.org.
