Does The Cost Of A Kids Tablet Matter?

If you are considering the purchase of a kids wifi tablet, you may be distracted by the vast array of brands that are available. Kids tablets range in price from $50 to as high as $350. But are the higher prices worth it?

Generally speaking, yes! But most of the difference is in the hardware. If you compare a $50 tablet to a $300 tablet, you will see differences in the following:

  • Higher resolution
  • Faster processor
  • More storage space
  • Longer battery life

For example, take a look at the following specs:

Polaroid 7 Inch Kids Tablet (under $100):


Connection Wifi and USB
Screen Size 7 Inches
Storage 8 GB
Weight 2 Pounds
Processor 1 GHz
Battery life 4 Hours

Kurio 10S tablet ( over $150 )

Connection Wifi and USB
Screen Size 10 Inches
Storage 8 GB
Weight 4.5 Pounds
Battery life 7 hours

The Unseen Differences

Apart from the obvious spec differences, there are also the unseen ones. The ones having to do with engineering quality and customer care. As you would have guessed, most high priced tablets also have better customer service when something goes wrong and the tablet breaks.

Most higher priced tablets are less sluggish and generally break down less often. You need to be aware of potential issues before buying a tablet, and the best way is to look at Amazon Reviews.


When looking for a good kids tablet to buy, you can expect that the best tablets are going to be the most expensive. But that doesn’t mean that a tablet under $100 will not make you and your kids happy. There is less to risk when buying a higher cost tablet, but you may also want to consider how long you want to keep the tablet before buying a new one.
