As mums, we know kids can’t get enough of playing and learning with tablets these days. Which is why we’re so excited to introduce the Kurio Product Review.

The new Kurio 7S is the ultimate android tablet for families! The new Kurio 7S 7inch Android tablet has been designed with the whole family in mind. The advanced tablet offers best-in-class parental controls, which allow parents to set up unique user profiles for each family member. Kurio profiles ensure that parents have full control over the content their kids have access to on the tablet, including app management, safe web filtering and even setting time limits for each child’s daily usage!

Kurio comes ready to play as it’s packed with preloaded best-selling games and educational content including full versions of kids favourites Angry Birds Space, Fruit Ninja, Disney Princess, Disney Cars, Toy Story, Mathepillar, eBooks and so much more! Additional apps and games can be downloaded via WIFI from the regular Android app store.

Kids will have a blast playing with the front and rear cameras, shooting video, listening to music, watching movies, drawing and learning while having fun. The included drop safe silicon bumper ensures the tablet is protected from minor bumps and knocks.

The easy to use parental controls will give parents complete peace of mind, with just a few simple clicks parents can enter the password protected parental area and access detailed controls. Parental controls include:

  • Access detailed controls right on the tablet through the easy to use, password protected parental area
  • Set up to 8 completely independent user profiles with full file separation – it’s like having 8 tablets in one Kurio!
  • Set individual time limits for each family member with just a few clicks
  • Choose age-appropriate apps and add them to your child’s profile
  • Kurio Genius™ Kid-Safe Internet Filtering System included – an advanced system that filters 450+ million websites a day and determines what is appropriate content based on your child’s age and the restriction levels set by the parent
  • Easily manage safe lists (allows access to parental approved websites) and block lists (blocks inappropriate websites as set by the parent)
  • Access to many more apps through the kid safe Kurio app store or the regular Android app store

    great size packed with features

    my friend came over with her children for a cuppa and her children have one, they were nice enough to show us how it works, and let my children play with it for a while, i was impressed on the age range of the apps, there was something for everyone to do, what a fantastic device, looks like we might have to get one for Christmas.

    the kurio funtime

    We loved the kurio tablet. As partmof my business the chikdren were fortunate enough to be given a lend of a tablet from moose. I never thought thye woukd get it back and I thought with 1 there would be loads of fighting over it but no. Lots of sharing.
    the only downside I believe is the cost. With 2 under 5 we were in need of entertainment for a big road trip. Had they have been around $150max we wouldn”t have hesitated abd brought 2 of them.

    Checking in again - 2 weeks later

    Our family has had the Kurio for two weeks now. And we had the opportunity to take it on the road last weekend as we went for a bit of a drive. The kids still love playing with the games and apps but an unexpected stand out for them has been the toddler jukebox. They have really been enjoying listening to the songs and singing along. I caught my three year old setting up the Kurio along side his drum last week so he could have a little karaoke session!
    We have really enjoyed this tablet, and while I am still a Mac person the Kurio will become the kids tablet, especially when we travel or have long appointments. Having separate log ins with different restrictions is probably the stand out feature of the Kurio.
    The only things I would want potential customers to be aware of is that the Kurio comes with a rubber bumper but no case (so the screen is not protected), having said that it would be simple to make or purchase a sleeve for the tablet. The battery life is also shorter than similar devices and it did not come with a car charger (although accessories are on their website and I hope Big W will also be stocking them).

    Wonderful sturdy tablet.

    What a surprise to be chosen to review this product. I was very taken with just how funky it is and apealing to the eye. The games on it cover a wide range of ages. Am yet to download anything but have found it quite mum friendly so far!!! Have a friend with younger children so am waiting to give them a go to see how they like the games aimed at their ages. I am very taken with its all round appeal, with an affordable price to boot.

    Not an ipad

    This is ok. It broke after a couple of months. I didn’t find it was great quality. These are not an ipad quality that’s for sure. You are not able to download everything and not as hardy. They are ok if you can’t afford an ipad but I would not recommend one. Save your money not worth it in my opinion. It’s a shame but I had to go out and purchase another brand that’s right you guessed it an ipad two years later it’s still going strong. Personally don’t waste your money. Nt for our family any way

    A great product for kids to use

    My granddaughters were given one of these for christmas presents, they just love them. They are very careful, and are teaching me to use one. I bought a similar product and they had to show me how to get to the apps and back. I am impressed by the security, that is so important with kids these days. Very good product.

    Pretty average

    I bought 2 of these for my nieces, within a month I was having to return them to Big W for new ones, as they had completely stopped working, wouldn’t even turn on! They have limited capabilities and apps. I did like the idea of the parental controls though.

    fun, simple and best for children to use

    U bought my own as it though having to entertain my son this may do the trick. Well it was perfect having him sit down for an hour or two just playing with this. Made dinner that much easier to have and going out too. Perfect for us.

    Best Xmas Present for a 3 year old

    We brought this for my son for Christmas, we were a little unsure if it would be any good. But my son LOVES it, he loves the rage go apps and games and I like the fact its SAFE for the kids to play on and I know he won’t land on any sites I don’t want him to see!

    I would recommend this to other parents!

    awesome for the kids

    This is such an awesome learning machine for the kids. Easy to use and no many things for them to do and hours and hours of fun and also keeps there minds on the go. It also gives the children ways to play games and a lot of brain activity.
