A portable tablet is a great way to keep your kids entertained on an airplane or a long car trip if you’re travelling this holiday season. These tablets are pre-loaded with educational content, (plus you can purchase more) and built-in accelerometers for gaming. The best thing is that they’re built with kids in mind, so you do not need to worry about watching your iPad screen shatter if it is dropped. These are built with hard plastic that enables a firm grip, as well as take a fair amount of drops and dings.
