Best Android tablet for kids

  • 6-inch 1,280 x 800 pixel IPS screen
  • Mediatek CPU
  • 8/16GB storage
  • Fire OS
New for 2014, the Amazon Fire HD 6 is one of the first sub-7-inch tablets we’ve seen. It uses a 6-inch screen, giving it proportions that kids are more likely to get on with. Just as important, it’s also cheap.

At £80 for the 8GB version, you’re not going to have to cancel your kid's pocket money for a whole year if they accidentally drop it. In tablets of this price, you generally have to deal with a great many hardware cuts, but there are remarkably few here. The Fire HD 6 has a good-quality IPS screen, a surprisingly powerful processor and very good battery life.

It’s not as slim as we’d like and it uses Amazon’s more restrictive Fire OS rather than normal Android, but it’s still a corker for kids or budget buyers.

Price:
£79.99
