Just like everyone else on your list, the kids want to be cool too!! My daughter wants a tablet for Christmas this year, but I dont think she is old enough to take care of a tablet pc. My husband and I have ours, and she wants one for herself. She wants to read books on her own eReader and play games that she can get herself on the Android Market. She does not want to have to wait on us so she can use one of ours. I have looked into some of the kids tablets by some of the companies that put out kids gaming devices, but they are meant for kids up to age 9, and she will be 8 soon. So, I see it as a waist of money to get something like that for her now. She will use it for about a year, then we will be looking for something else for her. I have been researching tablet pcs for kids as well as others for us. The one that caught my attention was the PlayBase. This one is meant for kids. It has a rubber cover, so it can protect against rain, dirt and scratches, which is a concern for me when giving a tablet to my daughter. The screen is also thicker than most, which also raises concern. So really this is the tablet that I am interested in getting for my daughter. I would love to and I am hoping to get one so I can review it and give you guys more info on it!!
After watching this drop test video, I feel even more curious about this tablet. It also makes me more confident in wanting to test one out on my daughter to see if it passes!!
