The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is not that much different from the original Galaxy Tab 3, but Samsung is emphasizing a healthy suite of parental controls, and is making it “kid proof” with a nice protective bumper case include in the box.

Parents can not only control what their kids access, but when and for how long. Only want your kids to be able to play games for an hour per day right after dinner? You can do just that. Here are but a few of the highlights:

  • Special Kid’s Interface:  Easily access kid-specific content through the easy to navigate user interface, including kid-friendly apps and games.
  • Kid-Friendly Games: Toca Train, Wipeout, Fruit Ninja, Disney’s Toy Story: Smash It! and Where’s My Perry? and more.
  • Educational Apps: Learn ABCs and 123s with educational apps including I Learn With Ocean, Dolphin Reader, Inventions 2 and Kids Planet Discovery
  • Built-In Camera: Capture moments or create movies with the 3-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.  In Kids mode, the camera features fun and interactive settings that let kids add stickers or costumes to photos.
  • Parental Controls: Manage a child’s tablet experience, including what content kids can access, as well as when and how long they use the tablet at one time.  In addition, you can control the transition between Standard mode and Kids mode with PIN-based access.
  • Built-For-Kids Case: Protect the lightweight, portable tablet from bumps and bruises with the colorful, easy-to-hold case available in orange.

The tablet isn’t going to excite the biggest of Android enthusiasts, but for $230 and with pain-free children proofing out of the box, the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids could be a major hit this holiday season. Are you going to pick one up for your little ones?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Yes I am! My daughter may not like the bright colors though.

  2. I wanna know the specs? My kid will NOT be the one with a weak, outdated tablet.

    J/K, I dont have kids. But if I did they would have one of these!

  3. The app selections aren’t limited by Samsung are they? Can you download to the device any education software you have already purchased (or want to obtain) from Google Play?

    Can a parent block access to the camera, video, and gallery choices and only allow access to the education apps during certain times? We homeschool our special needs daughter who likes to learn on our Nexus 7 tablet but would spend all her school time distracted with the camera instead.

  4. Wow; Finally release date announces I am planning to buy this for my sweet little princes. She will love it. :)

  5. For all that, you might as well buy a Nabi tablet for your kids. It’s about 50 bucks cheaper!

  6. you can get a much better 7″ with higher res, running 4.x for cheaper. this is not a good bargain imo.

  7. Nabi 2 is cheaper.

  8. Samsung Galaxy tab 3 is one of the best smart tab . It is most demanding smart tab in the Indian market . It comes with attractive model . I bought this tab 2 month back . Really, I am enjoying with this tab .
