If you have a child, then his or her happiness is of paramount importance to you. So when you can see your child happy and at the same time boost their learning and development while simultaneously helping him or her to use and understand technology, then it becomes even more valuable than something priceless.
Plus, with a kids tablets, the number of accidents that happen when kids borrow your phone or tablet will reduce as they will be busy on their own tablet. So if you are looking for a kids tablet that does not cost must and comes with full parental support, then the Jellipad’s kids tablet is a right choice for you.
Priced at £59.99 on Amazon when reviewed, the Jellipad tablet comes with a free silicon case, earphones and a stylus. With 8 GB internal memory, two 2 MP cameras and Kidoz Pro interface, Jellipad’s tablet is a good buy at this price.

The Silicon Case & Device Colour
Jellipad mentions that while designing the tablet, both the internal and external safety were the main thought for them. The Jellipad tablet is not just a regular tablet put in a silicon case, the tablet has rounded edges with inbuilt rubber protection and tough plastic casing available in 3 colors (pink, blue and green) to make it as child-friendly as possible.
Cameras, Memory, and Ports
The Jellipad tablet comes with 2 cameras, one front and one rear, both of 2 megapixels. It also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a microUSB port, a microSD card slot along with a 3.5 mm earphone jack. You can add up to 32 GBs of external storage through microSD card slot.
The micro USB port available is used for charging and syncing, it also supports USB on-the-go (OTG) so that you can access files stored on a pen drive through this tablet or even connect a mouse to your tablet.
Resolution and Processor
The hardware of the tablet is well built but it lacks having good screen resolution as is the case with most of the kid’s tablets. The Jellipad’s tablet has a screen resolution of 1024×600 (171 ppi) which is same as that of Amazon Fire.
We are yet to see a tablet with good resolution in kids segment and this price range. As this tablet features an LCD screen, colors do not look right and the device needs to be held straight-on to correctly view the colors.
Coming to the performance, the Jellipad tablet features a 1.3GHz quad-core processor which is speedy enough considering that this tablet is to be used by a kid. The Jellipad tablet comes with a 512 MB RAM which is sufficient for a kids tablet but the tablet might hang while running heavier apps simultaneously.
The software is equally important as hardware on a kids’ tablet. I’d say it’s even more important than hardware. It comes with few pre-loaded apps such as Jellipad’s educational app along with Kidoz Pro interface so that once you have set up an account, it’s ready to go with hours of fun before you need to install any new apps.
Along with this, the tablet gives parents full access to Android Kitkat operating system, unlike many such tablets available for kids.
Kidoz Pro Interface
According to Jellipad, they strive to make playing and learning a fun, safe and colorful experience. That’s why it comes with full Kidoz Pro software which features an easy, stress-free and kid-friendly interface.
Coming to what actually is Kidoz, it is a content discovery platform for kids which helps kids in finding fun, entertaining and relevant content. For example, it will shoe funny videos on YouTube that are suitable to be watched by your kid
Kidoz has a large selection of free games for kids along with the largest library of free kids’ videos and a safe web browser with pre-verified websites for them to enjoy. This interface also features its own games and app store allowing a kid to choose from storybooks, learning apps, and games. It has apps for Music, Drawing, Language and Vocabulary, Mathematics etc.
The Jellipad tablet also comes with a parental control software which is inbuilt into Kidoz app. This software allows a parent to control what exactly your kids or kids can do and can’t do and for how long they can use it.
There is also an option named Extra Safe Mode (remains on even after reboot) which only allows kids to access the content a parent want his or her kid to see.
Coming with free accessories such as a stylus, an earphone, and a screen protector, the Jellipad tablet is the one you should go for. Considering all other features apart from RAM, everything makes this tablet stand out from the rest at this price.
