I bought this because my toddler was obsessed with my iPad and cracked the screen a few times, deleted all my photos and deleted a few apps. I wanted a kid friendly device but iPads were really expensive, even for an older model and other baby tablets were a total waste of money. My sister ordered the older model for her kids and they loved it, so I decided to buy one as well and thought the most recent model made sense for the price. I was even able to pay $30 a month which really contributed to feeling happy to purchase the upgraded model.
I was a little worried to order this item because people were saying apps weren't downloading and they were having problems with the device. Our internet is terribly slow here but the apps do download, albeit, they need some time, but that's typical of any device and there's plenty of pre-downloaded content to entertain your little one while in the meantime. Yes, its true that the memory space for apps is very low, I'll give it that, but there are apps that don't seem to require memory so there is always something to do. I would say my son has access to at least 30-40 games with memory space. That's A LOT of variety for a 2.5 year old. And since they are downloaded, they require no wi-fi while out of the house.
I do have issues with accessing the homescreen and changing over accounts. You have to hit the power button to do so. I say it should be a swipe up or in the upper hand corner. Also, there is no instruction manual, which is really annoying. You have to go online for that. I wanted to give my son access to certain apps over his age restriction, but for some reason, only 2 of the 4 appeared on his side. I really do NOT like the way the apps are organized on the child home screen. Its messy and makes finding what you're looking for difficult unless you "favorite" it, which I didnt know was a thing until he did it accidentally. But yea, no manual so...But my biggest pet peeve is that for my son to get out of a game or app, he has to swipe up from the bottom of the screen and hit the world's tiniest little white button on screen. He was super frustrated with this device for the first few days. There needs to be a better way.
Overall, the item is very nice. Bright screen. Big durable case cover. Lightweight. Lots of access to games you would otherwise need to pay $3-5 bucks a pop for with an android or apple device for a simple low price. Toca Boca, Lego, PJ Masks, that sort of thing. It can grow with your child's development and I expect to have it for the next few years. I feel happy with this purchase and my son enjoys it. And I get my iPad back now :) Now to get the cracked screen fixed...
