get the standard kindle fire 7" and get the kids case we got 3 for our 2,4 and 5 years and they have loved it really easy to block contact and give them limited time and access to apps etc..

Tablets are to big for small hands. To a child a tablet is like a tea tray. An old/new smart phone is far better and may survive longer.

My toddler has the cheapest Fire. Bought a tempered glass protector for £3, a leather-style case for £2. It's fairly well protected in respect of drops. It's a good size for her (18m) although it's purely for watching stuff at present.

personally its just the case, both have kids mode it may have a slightly tougher screen but we got three at £30 each for the cost of one kids special :-) 2 year old has dropped a couple of times no damage not too worried if i have to replace every year at 30 quid if you search on amazon you will see the tough kids cases

6" Fire HD 4th gen when available would be great, bit smaller & cheap I paid £23 in November so keep eyes peeled

Having the kids one I agree the kids one just has a foam cover and possibly stronger screen not greatly worth it

iPad Air 2 128g should be OK as a cheap babysitter.

None,

Toys or books to develop their imaganations, preferably outdoor play.

Why encourage them to sit in front of a screen so early, when they inevitably will anyway?
#16
I have had a few different ones as my son be on them since 9/12months and a lot the kids ones haven't been that good. So honestly iPad has been the best as nearly all app style toys are done for it. We go few different cases and this yr we have even got him a new one on contract (mainly as we been away a lot so he has Internet) and he just 4 but will last him longer

I have a fire kids for my 3 year old. he is autistic so he tends to launch it fairly often. the tempered glass is a must. the big chunky cases are God send.
in terms of difference between kids and normal one, the kids one has an adult profile which it goes to first after switching on. then you have to go to the child profile. one bad thing about it is you aren't able to share videos photos between the two profiles. bit gutted as I wanted to put family stuff on it for him. you can allow child access to apps, videos e -books etc that are through your Amazon account.

I'll be another one to say the Amazon fire tablet 7"
Its really good for the money, and you can easily set up Google Play store for all other apps with a quick google.

They are £49.99 now - I got 2 for £30 each on Black Friday, and last week they were £35. So may be worth holding out a bit longer in case any price drops for New Year deals?

Also this case is very similar to Amazon's children case for half the cost:

Even cheaper on eBay with free shipping or click and collect at Argos:
