    The only thing I'm going to use this for is to download some kids games to give my 3-year olds something to do on a plane ride. We already have an iPad but don't want to take it on the trip.

    Looking for something hopefully less than $100? Any suggestions?

    My parents bought my two year old the Nabi Tablet for Christmas. $124 on Amazon.

    She doesn't use it though, honestly I have no idea where it is. Even my toddler prefers an iPad. :grin:

    Gently used is a good bet. If you really don't care about updates or features, a cheap Chinese android tablet is also a good choice.

    You can sometimes find a used 2013 nexus 7 for around that price. I bought a 16gb Nexus 7 (with an LTE modem) for $105 off of ebay in perfect condition. Although I think I got really lucky with that price. But a Nexus 7 wont age for a while, it still has fantastic specs and great build quality.

    A used 2012 nexus 7 in mint condition goes for under 100 on swappa. I think that's way better than a newer cheap Chinese tablet.

    Used Android Dell Venue 7 tablets. Just over $60

    Edit: Definitely recommend Android or iPad, just because there are more choices than with Windows on downloadable apps (I have a windows phone, and frequently encounter things I can't download).

    I would go with android, but if you want a windows tablet, Microcenter has some cheap windows tablets by winbook. The 8" is for $100 and the 7" is for $70. The Microsoft store has a 7" hp steam for $79 and you get a $25 gift card

    Came to say this. I bought a winbook 8 for my 7 year old. She can netflix etc and also poor-mans "dock" it and start to use a real PC.

    For a 3 year old though, I'm not sure how much a windows tablet will have content that's age appropriate.

    I flew on a Delta flight a couple days ago and they had screens on the back of every seat. All you needed was headphones.

    Check bigtexxxs trash. He uses the toilet paper app to wipe, then throws the tablet away.

    My three year old has a cheap Chinese tablet (RCA brand, about $70 at Walmart) and a rubber protective case. It works great for what he needs - free or cheap game apps. The only downside is that it loses its charge quickly. You get a few hours out of it.

    He also has an Innotab (yes, spoiled kid) which is made for little people, and the charge lasts practically forever. But their games/apps have to be downloaded through their system, which is kind of slow and a pain; it's more expensive. So I don't have too much on that one. Between the two tablets, he can get through a long day of car riding.
