The best tablets on the market today are truly wonders of modern technology. Despite their small size, they're incredible for everything from getting work done while on-the-go to taking your entire media collection with you while you travel. Of course, all of this is incredibly impressive if you're in your 30s, 40s and beyond ... but it probably won't lead you to bat an eye if you're 10.

But children can absolutely get in on the action too as our list below of our top picks for tablets for kids goes a long way towards proving.
