How to make your tablet kid-friendly
Here are apps you need to entertain the little ones
If you have kids in the house, it is more than likely that they use your gadgets too. It’s not surprising they already know how to take selfies and operate gadgets at a young age. We also can’t deny that one of the ways to pacify a restless child is to let them play with your phone or tablet. That said, you have no choice but to give up some space in the memory and download game apps for them.
We have listed a few of the game apps we think the little ones will enjoy, which to be honest, we love playing too!

For the little boys, you can get them Talking Tom. Just like with My Talking Angela, the kids can customize Tom’s clothes too. Over 10 mini-games will allow you to earn gold coins to buy new clothes, new furniture, and food.
