  • Some features need to be set-up first before you can use them – The camera and other features can be accessed in kids mode if you set it up.
  • Too good, can be addicting – This can always be a disadvantage of a fun gadget. So it’s the parents sole responsibility to monitor their children. Setting the time limit for the tablet’s use is also very important.  
  • The interface is not kid-friendly – Some users claim that the interface of this kids edition tablet is not pretty adequate for young children’s use. The option to go back to where you previously visited is a little complicated too. 
  • Not enjoyable for bigger kids – Some users also say that this tablet is not enjoyable for bigger kids because it’s a little too easy for them. This may be good for youngsters but not for 8 year old or so kids. 
  • Setting up for parents can be quite a task – It takes a while to finish setting up mainly because you have to switch back and forth from your account to your kid’s and vice versa. You have to check what you’ve installed and go to your kid’s profile and sometimes it takes a while to load. And then you have to go back again to your parental account to modify something. You have to do this with PIN so it’s really quite a task.
