So, we became Kurio Family Bloggers thanks to a heartfelt plea from Ninny. She will be using the Kurio XL tab to create youtube videos for her new channel, as well as playing the many games.
These are few of my own initial thoughts on the Kurio XL…
The Kurio XL is a 10 inch tablet, designed specifically for kids. It comes with a charger, a stand and this lovely rubbery case. The sheer size of the tablet was first thing that hit us. Its the perfect size for Ninny as she struggles with her eyes, so with the Kurio XL she is able to see everything clearly and comfortably.
A couple of years back we actually won the original Kurio Tab, so we were really excited to see how much it had changed over the years and whether improvements had been made.
The display is crystal clear, easy to navigate for both adults and children. The Kurios best feature is the safety aspect, it’s a tablet which is designed to keep the kids safe whilst online, and make it easy to use for little people. It has come a long way over two years and it seems to have harnessed all the changes needed, it’s grown with technology and it really is something I will be recommending.
The Kurio XL tab comes with 50 preinstalled apps, which have kept Ninny entertained for hours, other than Youtube, she has not asked for any other apps to be installed. WIN!
Being an android based tablet, this means you have access to everything the play store offers, as well as the fabulous educational, fun apps the Kurio store offers. A huge bonus.
The XL tab also has aHMDI port, which is something we were thrilled with, it makes it super easy to connect to the TV.
By far the most intriguing thing for me was the whole “motion” aspect of the Kurio XL, not something I have seen in other tablets, especially ones for children. I was looking forward to seeing how they have incorporated this into the games.
Ninny was recently playing a cooking game, in which she has to bake a cake, I noticed she was using the motion control to pour ingredients into the mix and then into the other bowl, it was lovely to watch her interaction with the tablet grow and I can see the Motion aspect of the tablet is something she will explore further in weeks to come!
Over the coming weeks, both me and Ninny will be posting updates on the Kurio XL tab and exploring everything it has to offer, so stay tuned!
