The BEST Tablet for Kids

Have you ever picked up your cell phone, only to find that almost everything has changed on it? Every setting is different, every button has been pushed, and you have 49 new photos and videos starring your children joyfully playing with your phone? Yeah, it happens to us too. And I found a fix for that problem. Your kids are going to go crazy for this!! We recently got a Kurio Xtreme tablet for our kids and it came with over $300 dollars of apps and games that kids love (and some apps that I used to have on my phone but don’t need on my phone anymore!) Our family loves the kid-friendly tablet SO much that I’ve teamed up with Kurio to bring your family a FREE Kurio Xtreme! Just think of how excited your kids would be to open this on Christmas morning:

Kurio Xtreme

What I love most about our Kurio Xtreme is that we use it strictly for the kids. They no longer reach for MY phone, tablet, or laptop (SCORE!). It also happens to be the safest tablet for kids. It allows bigger kids the ability to browse the web safely and offers several smart parental controls. I love to be controlling… when it comes to my kids and the internet that is 🙂

And remember, I’m giving away a free one! Keep reading…

Parents use the Kurio Xtreme under a separate password protected profile which allows us to determine such things as time limits and block apps. Do you have more than 1 kid? So do we! Each child can have their own user profile and we, as parents, can control each one. In fact, it allows up to 8 user profiles. But, that’s a lot of kids. So, even if you have 3 or 4 children, you’re still good to go (ha!).

What do KIDS love about the Kurio Xtreme? Oh where do we begin? This tablet is the first of its kind. No really, the first tablet ever that has “body motion control gaming” (say it with me: first evaaahhhhhh)

Kurio Xtreme short

“Body motion control gaming” is a fancy way of saying that your body movements actually control the actions in the games! The kids actually move their bodies for swimming, running, and even skiing games! The Kurio Xtreme responds to their moves, making it not only fun to play, but really fun to watch too! Plus – just going to point out – that none of our other games have features like that. In fact, if they’re playing games on a tablet, they’re usually pretty sedentary. Not anymore! The Kurio Xtreme has 10 exclusive body motion games that your kids will go bonkers over (ours did!).

My kids also love the apps that were already installed when we bought it. Ever heard of Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, Cut the Rope 2, or Subway Surfer? Yup, most parents know those games and most kids LOVE those games. I love that I don’t need them on my phone anymore (party!).

Another really fun feature is that kids can safely take videos and pictures. What does safely mean? Safely means that the silly photos they take won’t accidentally end up on YOUR Instagram, Facebook, or Snapchat account. It’s happened to me, several times.

In fact, this device has a super smart and super special independent internet filtering system, called the “Kurio Genius” which means it blocks any inappropriate content online. It’s safer than letting them play on the regular internet! It has security levels that cover over 500 million (yes million) websites. I LOVE that my kids won’t click on something and end up seeing scandalous and inappropriate things! The popups on regular apps can be nuts….
