The browsing option even has parental settings for easy fine-tuning. 
Personally, what I look for in a tablet is one which will endure and be used for a few years.  I would be more inclined to go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab for example rather than a kiddie tablet even though they are possibly more durable than adult tablets.  It is relatively affordable, the screen is brilliant and with the wealth of Android apps, it can be used by all the family.  It is lightweight and easy to use too.Argos Top Technology Predictions for ChristmasI also received this Marvel iPad case from Argos for my iPad.  Any Marvel fan will sure love this casing!  My son was so excited and ask if he could have it.  Even though this casing is for the iPad 3, my iPad 2 managed to fit in nicely.  It is made from thick material which it great to provide good protection around the tablet.  I love how the Velcro works to create a different angles for when you want to stand the iPad up.  It also comes with a small pocket and a carry strap.  Thanks to Argos and Markettiers4dc for putting up a great event for us to check out the latest technology.Disclosure: I had received a goodies bag for this event.  I am a member of Markettiers4dc.
