School Zone, the company that has brought you award winning educational workbooks for decades, created and launched a kids tablet in 2014 with rave reviews. I had the opportunity to review the tablet and it's a race to see who can get a hold of the Little Scholar Tablet first. Can't say as I blame them; the tablet made for kids ages 3 to 7 resembles a regular tablet that an adult would use, but it's loaded with lots of educational and fun content for the kiddos. The Little Scholar Tablet still gets played with often and I was excited to have the chance to review the new and improved Little Scholar Tablet.

If, and only if, parents want additional content downloaded to the tablet they can do so through the password-protected parent section. For now, I've not needed to download any additional apps. The kids have been massively entertained with what's already on the tablet.

The Little Scholar Kids Tablet has a protective bumper. It has raised dots for an easy grip. The bumper can be removed if the child prefers not to have it on the tablet. The device has an average battery life of five hours.
Although you have to purchase it extra as an accessory, there's the option to purchase a Little Scholar Protective Case for the tablet. It is green and orange in color and has handles. It zips closed and has a mesh separator to store small items.

Parents are able to use the A+ Report Card app to view graphs and reports of how often a child is on a specific task and how they're performing. That particular section is quite helpful in seeing how a child is progressing and which areas of academics they're excelling in, or what areas could use more help.
The tablet itself is easy to set up and comes with an adaptor. Normal charge time is 8 to 12 hours. The tablet is equipped with a virtual keyboard, and a headphone connector. Headphones can be purchased separately. In order to store additional files or to have more storage space on the tablet, you may need to purchase a MicroSD card and insert it in the tablet. The tablet has an 8-inch screen. The Little Scholar Tablet has provided my nieces and nephews hours of entertainment. It's a way for young children to have fun and learn at the same time.
One person will win a Little Scholar Tablet. (ARV $149.99)
