Top 3 Tablets For Kids, Under CHF 200


Tablets are almost becoming an essential accessory for any home nowadays. But how can we be certain that our children will be entertained safely while using cutting edge technology? Here are three tablets that combine all the features you will need to know about when choosing tech for your kids.

  • What you need to know before you buy is that tablets can be used to
  • Educate and entertain your child.
  • Learn to use technology in a safe and simple way.
  • Have long-lasting batteries and should not be too expensive.


Here are our porposals under CHF 200 CHF.

1. ESTAR Tablet

HERO 7" 16GB (TBHEEST00060BK), CHF 85,80

eSTAR HERO Tablets are a great option when it comes to tablets for kids and that’s because they come in a lot of different fun editions such as:

  • Avengers
  • Batman
  • BB8
  • Emoji
  • Harry Potter
  • Hogwarts
  • LooneyTunes
  • Scoob
  • Krieg der Sterne
  • Supermann
  • Tom & Jerry und
  • Wonder Woman.


They come via an eSTAR and Warner Bros partnership and their starting price is at 85.80 CHF so they make a very affordable option because let’s face it when buying a new tablet for children we don’t want to spend much money, but we also don’t want something too basic or not age-appropriate.


Most of them have apps and content already pre-installed and full accessibility to the Google Play store and all the apps free of charge. HERO Tablets also have a parental control feature.

So parents only have to download a parental control app, ensuring that their kids can use the tablet without jeopardizing their protection and well-being. Hero Tablets have a perfect size and weight.

Adult tablets are typically bigger and heavier, making them less portable and easier to hold for long periods of time. On the other hand, kids’ tablets are typically smaller and lighter which makes them easier to hold and use. HERO Tablets are 7″ HD TFT, are 191.5×109.5×10.5 mm, and weigh 284 g.


  • Screen diagonal: 7

  • Total storage capacity: 16 GB

2.  SAMSUNG Galaxy

A8 10.5 WiFi (2021), 32GB, Dark Grey (SM-X200), CHF 179 

Now for those who prefer a real tablet instead of a children’s one the Galaxy Tab A8 is the answer to your dreams. Samsung's low-end tablet has a 10.5-inch display, 32GB of storage, and runs Android 11 and comes with a built-in child mode. This means you and your kids will have access to the Play Store, which includes access to YouTube or YouTube Kids. This tablet is more than capable of streaming shows, playing child-friendly games, or turning into an e-reader.

Samsung Kids is a built-in feature that allows your kids to use your Galaxy phone or tablet -  but you'll be in control of the apps they have access to!

Your child will be able to learn through entertaining games like

  • block coding
  • drawing
  • creating music, and a lot more.

With Samsung Kids, you can set time limits and see usage reports so you'll know what your child is learning.

Parental controls with Google's Family Link app allow you to set rules for how a phone and tablet are used, allowing you to guide your child while they learn and play online.


  • 10.5" touch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels
  • Octa-core processor with 2.0 GHz
  • 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory

P11 Wi-Fi, 4.0GB RAM, 128GB, Slate Grey (ZA7R0231CH), CHF 199

Lenovo's Tab P11 is an attractive and not overly expensive option when looking for a kids tablet especially if battery life is important to you.

The 11-inch 2K display looks fantastic, and the battery life will keep your child entertained for hours.

Your children will be able to watch up to 15 hours of video streaming!

This tablet also runs Android 11 out of the box and has some great features: each child can get a separate user space on the tablet and parents can also set parental controls (time limits, ability to install apps) via the Family Link app.

During the initial setup, the child can choose from certain interests, such as

  • sports
  • fairy tales
  • science
  • nature, etc.


  • Screen size: 11"
  • Screen resolution 2000x1200
  • Screen type 11" IPS (2000 x 1200) slim bezel
  • Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 662
  • Processor family Qualcomm
  • Random access memory 4GB
  • Internal memory 128GB
  • Weight 490 gr


Parental controls

The internet isn’t always safe, and protecting the kids from the associated risks is a big concern. Parents want their kids to have a device to connect, entertain, and study, without exposing their them to the dangers of the internet. For that, various parental apps and software can be the parents’ best allies.

The top ones we recommend are

  • Net Nanny
  • Google Family Link
  • Kaspersky-Safe-Kids and
  • Norton Family. 

Finally, a basic tip when looking for a device to introduce your child to the technology world is whether or not it is easy to use. There will be a lot of features on the tablet and this may cause some confusion if it isn't simple.

Things to do with kids who love gaming, outside the house.  

Between 17.2 and 23.7 at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich Toni Areal A Video Games Today exhibition will run for adults and kids.  

In this exhibition children and parents can understand the impact of gaming beyond the entertainment industry and into new industries, such as medicine, education, ocean and space exploration.  

Additionally, the audience will discover new trends in gaming along with cutting edge technologies.  They can learn how to design their own video games in one semester as well as observe historic video games that changed the lives of most of their parents.
