1. ESTAR Tablet
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:
- Harry Potter
- Krieg der Sterne
- 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.

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.
