Kurio 4S Touch - a child-friendly and safe tablet #ProductReview

Earlier this year I was asked if we’d like to join the Kurio Family Blogger group, something that greatly interested me as technology is ever-growing and with it, the need to ensure our children’s safety whilst gaming/online.

We were sent a Kurio 4S to try out, this is the smallest android tablet on sale and as you will see from the photo, is very similar in size to a smart phone.

As with any new gadget, the first thing anyone wants to do is turn on and have a go.

The Kurio is extremely user-friendly and T was able to navigate around the settings and set his profile with very little guidance.

The profiles area has space for fourseparate profiles and these can be personalised for each user.

Each profile can be individually set up to include:

Name, date of birth, Internet restrictions, usage (ie. the Kurio can be set to only be accessed at certain times) and apps.

There are over 30 apps already preloaded but more can be purchased from the Kurio store.

Now eyebrows might be raised as you consider children and apps purchase, well…this is where I REALLY like the Kurio controls. There is a feature in the Parental area where you can add some money in each profiles "bank", let’s say £5. That profile is only able to spend that amount and no more.

Parental permission is also required before accessing wifi (a child friendly search engine) or an apps purchase. A very handy addition.

The other thing I like about the 4S is its size. Very easy to slip into a pocket or bag and its rubber surround means that its not damaged if accidentally dropped. The battery lasts a long time too.

From a parental point of view, I’m very impressed with the educational quality of the pre-loaded apps and the safety features.

Here’s what T, my tester, had to say:

I liked the apps and you’re learning from them.

Very easy to use, all you had to do was unlock it and then you’re on.

This recent online article lists Kurio as one of the must-have toys for Christmas, I think any child would be delighted to unwrap this on Christmas Day and peace of mind for parents/carers too:
