5 Great Learning Tablets for Kids


Vinci Tablet

If you want to buy a kid-specific tablet -- and price is no object -- consider the Vinci Tab VH-2001. It offers an exceptional display and touch screen interface. Designed by a mom especially for tykes, the Vinci features a durable, soft frame that's built for small hands and the occasional rough-and-tumble child's play.

Parents worried about the long-term health effects of exposure to WiFi signals will appreciate the fact that the Vinci doesn't include a wireless router.

Now the technical specs: the Vinci runs Android 2.2 and features a 7-inch (18-centimeter) screen, 512MB of RAM, and 3-megapixel camera. Out of the box, you'll find it loaded with learning games, videos, music and interactive books. The Vinci tablet is a little more expensive than some other tablet-for-kids options: A $398 version offers three hours of battery life, while a $479 version runs for six hours on a single charge.
