Inexpensive Tablet for a 5 year old?

Posted 27th Nov
Looking for one for Christmas, I see a few negatives mentioned about the Kids amazon tablet, are there any alternatives?

No way would i gift a tablet to a five year old. Give them something else instead, preferably something without a screen.
He already uses his Mum's iPad and I'm not really one to judge...
You could get them an iPad Mini 2 or 3 secondhand. My kids have had them since they were 3.
No scratches or cracks. Always had a protector and case on.

Lots of educational apps available in the App Store.
amazon fire all the way £29.99
dont bother anything else and get a rubber case with folding handle few quid on ebay

also sideload google play store vids on youtube

If they are used to ipads, just get an older one of them. Ours have had them nearing 5 years now and they still work as well as they did when we got them. The numerous Kindles all grided to a halt.
amazon 10" hd fire tablet only £94.00 at the moment .......
My 3 year old has used my sons old mini 3 since she wasn’t even 1. This Christmas though she’s getting a mini 5. The iPad mini is great for kids and so easy to use.
My girls 6 and 9 have iPad 2018 and iPad Air

They love they and are so easy to use .
my dog has a mac
