Android tablet for kids

Posted 10th Jun
Can anyone recommend an Android tablet for kids, ages 2 and 5. Will be primarily used for educational stuff.

We tried the Amazon Fire but, despite the attractive price-point, found the interface incredibly annoying and the Amazon web browser quite restrictive.

Any thoughts welcome. Cheers

No, the Fire is an Android tablet locked down by Amazon and so you have to overcome that by installing standard Android services. The link below shows how to do this. It's actually pretty easy even if it sounds daunting.
