Remember that last children's tablet we told you about? Fuggitaboutit. The Kurio is ten times more awesome and moms and pops can use it, too. Just don't forget to log out of your Facebook account before you hand it to little Leroy for Sesame Street time. Just kidding. You can use one of the eight profiles, so your young one doesn't even have access to your stuff. There are also serious parental control capabilities on the device including website and app blocking.
The Kurio is made by Inspiration House and comes in three sizes, with the 10-inch being the largest. It has full (and blockable) access to the Android App Store. It only has 4GB of storage, but have no data fear, there is an SD card slot, in which you can add up to 32GB. There's a front-facing camera. Kids love those (just ask the Nintendo DSi), and the battery lasts six hours. The ugly kid-proof casing is removable, so parents can look hip while surfing and sipping.
Put down the latte for this part, though. The Kurio costs a whopping $230 bucks, and that's only for the 7inch. The 8-inch is $280 and the 10-inch is $310. Sure, it's cheaper than the ipad, but it's not necessarily the kind of money one wants to spend on something that may get used as a car seat drum or slobber tray.
