iPAD MINI FOR KIDS | 7″ Inch Apple iPad Great Kids Learning Tool
The 7″ iPad, the Apple 7.9″ Mini tablet is available. The iPad Mini for Kids is just perfect. Smaller than the full size tablet, a baby i Pad or small i Pad if you like is perfect for kids. The screen size is just 7.85 inches. Apple have indeed taken note that it is a very popular device for children.. The smaller version of the original tablet is a great size for kids.. not too big to be cumbersome for handling and it is 53% lighter than the full size IPAD MINI CASE.. As gifts go it is a wonderful gift idea for kids and was at the top of most kids Christmas Lists last year and I sure it will be as well this year.. A plus for the i Pad Mini is that because it is more affordable than the full size original it will be cheaper to update it when the newer model comes out.. also good if you have to buy more than one if you have a couple of kids.. I have limited the Apps on my son’s tablet to educational apps.

From an educational prospective, the iPad is an awesome educational tool for kids … there are over 275,000 apps available (and new ones released all the time), many aimed at all educational levels from toddlers to preschoolers to elementary school students to kids in college. It will help and advance your child in their learning like nothing else. Whatever your kids educational level is there is an App that will help with their learning. If your child is young I recommend the “Montessori Crosswords” App for phonics.. it is excellent. It quickly teaches kids sounds of letters which helps their phonics and reading. I am an avid believer in phonics and don’t believe in teaching “sight words” as I have seen reading levels go down if children are not taught phonics. My son is also using an excellent App to practice writing letters and numbers and another App which says words and then he can record his voice speaking (great because he needs help with speech). If you are homeschooling or thinking of a homeschool option, using the iPad will be an invaluable teaching tool. Other tablets do not have the sheer number of Apps available that are available for the iPad.
The IPAD CASE FOR KIDS has done wonders in schools as an education aid and is especially popular in the Autism community. Well that may have prompted them to think about releasing a smaller more kid friendly version of the iPad. I know I would be more than happy with my child carrying a smaller iPad in his bag to school.. less bulky and cheaper that the full size iPad. Even for women the iPad Mini is very exciting. Small enough to fit into a handbag without having to go out and buy a huge carry bag.
Update: There are rumblings and rumors that a new Mini tablet that will feature a retina display.
I will also be adding more great 7.85″ cases and accessories for kids as they become available..
