Klastor NEW Pink Rugged Girls Kids Android 4.1 Tablet PC 4gb WiFi - ideal christmas or birthday gift with Kid Market and parental Controls - Google Play store can be password protected (Pink 4gb)
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
Kids have been screaming out for tablets of their own since the ipad first hit the streets! Now, at last, we have the very thing - designed especially for children, the rugged, non-slip, exterior hides a very capable android tablet PC with Android 4.1 beating at it's heart. So, now, when they want to play Candy Crush on Dad's ipad or Mum's smartphone, you know what to do!
Not only has this tablet got all of the features of a standard android tablet, it combines those with a dedicated kids desktop and "Kid market" so that, should you wish, your children can be shielded from much of the content considered too old for them and, of course, they will love having their own dedicated apps / game centre - just like mum and dad. Simply enter their names and their date of birth and let the tablet do the rest.
With simple settings to operate the tablet, mum and dad can input how many hours per day the child is allowed to use the tablet, how much use at one sitting and how long the rest period between sittings must be - a truly well-thought-out android tablet.

- Functionality for price is hard to beat. This is a fully functioning tablet.
- Video playback is great. BBC iPlayer works very well (don't forget to put the appropriate age-related restrictions on there).
- Onboard sound is adequate, but with headphones much better. Also the volume doesn't get too loud - which is good for those young and delicate ears!
- The "Kid Desktop" is a great feature. You can completely ring-fence the applications available to your child. To exit this mode, you enter either a pin or answer a basic maths question.
This is configurable. Depending on how smart your kid is, the maths questions may be too simple for some children and easily bypassed. (eg What is 7*5?) If this is the case,
use the pin option instead. You can also limit the amount of playtime - a very good feature. Different profiles can be setup if the device will be shared by more than one child.
- It's colorful. I got the green one, and customized the wallpaper with a Ben 10 Omnitrix background. It now looks like a cool gadget that Ben 10 might have. I know my son is gonna love it!
- Memory is expandable with extra SD cards. (Wake up Apple!)
- Accelerometer works well for the games that require it and the device quickly determines which way up you are holding it.
- Swipe and gesture detection is good and smooth.
- Battery life seems reasonable. I used it for about 3 solid hours (installing apps and customizing the device etc) and it lost about 50% of the charge. Not sure how this will hold up when watching videos, but seems fine. I don't want my son using it all day in any case - I will retain control of the charger!
- Does not charge via the micro-USB port. This would have been useful - but at this price a minor issue. The lead on the provided AC adapter is quite short (~80cms) so it can be tricky to charge and use at the same time. I will probably buy another charger with a longer cable and also to serve as a backup.
- Microphone picks up a lot of noise when holding the device. So when Skyping it's advised to prop the device up rather than holding it in your hands.
- Front camera is quite poor especially in low light. Again at this price point, it's hard to grumble too much. It seemed OK under good light conditions. The rear camera is adequate for
taking snaps, but you will need an additional micro SD card before long if your child is as snap happy as mine!
- In "Kid Desktop" mode, some of the build in apps have a Chinese label (eg the Calculator app). For some reason, the label is displayed correctly in English when not in "Kid Desktop" mode. I haven't figured out how to fix this yet. It's not a big deal as I will not be leaving those on his "kids desktop" when I am done setting it up.
- Viewing angle is quite tight so really for one person to use at a time. This may be an issue for some if planning to use in the car for road trips and more than one person is viewing.
In summary, some very minor gripes listed for completeness but I am ultimately very happy with this purchase. Great value.
So, we bought this one based on most of the great reviews on here and the following points;
#1 It's pink and more child-like
#2 It's Android meaning WAY more apps and games compared to BlackBerry
#3 It's pretty cheap when you look at others
But as the saying goes "You get what you pay for.."
I feel slightly robbed of £60 as I don't feel this price is accurate for what I received.
- The negatives are;
- The casing (feels nice and slick but too many sharp bits and ultimately not a friendly finish overall, needs sanding),
- The buttons are "Click" literally making a plastic-y loud snappy click, the volume keys are the wrong way round (the left one turns volume up and the right one turns volume down, guess the Chinese do things differently),
- I would call the software "Clunky" but Android isn't, so I'm gonna put it down to the nasty hardware being used, it's painfully slow, even for my daughter who notices the difference between swiftly swiping around on the PlayBook and repeatedly attempting to touch the screen on this thing, everything is slow, don't bother with the games from the app store, you'll open them and most will run like you have just loaded Crysis on a netbook. The apps, however, run quite well aside from the poor screen, which is awful, it only looks good when it's slightly tilted back, if you look at it and tilt it, it turns 'Negative', plus it doesn't even fit the device, approx 1-2mm is covered by the plastic casing at the top end.
- Battery life, well, when it's dead you'll be looking at charging it for a few hours right? Do that and come back..... still hasn't given it enough power to fully turn on, it will keep turning the screen on and off with the 'Battery' image on screen indicating that it's charging so we gave it 24hrs, by then it had roughly 75%, woohoo, it didn't even last a few hours of normal use! The icon was soon down to showing a tiny amount of battery after no time, back to charging....
End of this 'review' is basically just avoid if you want you or your child to enjoy this, the likes of Apple, Android and BlackBerry could cater for the younger people one day but until then stay clear of these awful attempts, I bought the PlayBook for the same price and its brilliant, would send this back but for now its in the drawer as a back-up to the PlayBook.
