    The Polaroid Kids Tablet 2 features a 1024 x 600 resolution display and a 1.6 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor.

    There are plenty of child-focused tablets out there vying for your little one's attention, as we saw in our recent guide to choosing the best kids tablet. Now Polaroid has added the latest version of its Kids Tablet 2 into the fray, packed with content from the likes of Disney, Marvel and Cartoon Network.

    The durable 7-inch slate is undoubtedly a marked improvement over its predecessor, and this time round it has specs that could make it a rival for higher-end models like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids and the Fuhu nabi 2. Most notably it boasts features including a 1024 x 600 resolution display and a 1.6 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor.

    Running a kid-friendly version of Android 4.2, the Polaroid Kids Tablet 2 also features built-in Wi-Fi and 1 GB of RAM, along with 8GB of internal memory, and there's an SD card slot on hand for additional storage. There's also front and rear cameras for use with photography and video apps, and an accelerometer which will come in handy on many games.

    The child-safe design sees the use of side and rear bumpers, as well as built-in parental controls. While these aren't as comprehensive as some tablets, there's still the option to limit which apps can be accessed, and a safe web browser allows parents to white-list allowed websites. It also has a button which locks the display and buttons, ideal if you want to let a child watch a video, but not do anything else.

    The kids tablet comes bundled with over 70 books and apps including ones from Disney, Marvel and Cartoon Network. These include the usual sorts of drawing, music and camera apps as well as Cartoon Network, Kids Videos, and Toon Goggles video streaming apps. There's obviously also the chance to add more via the likes of the included App Shop, a curated store filled only with kid-friendly apps.

    The Polaroid Kids Tablet 2 is available now, priced around US$150.

    That's right. Kids will now have the opportunity to experience a powerful device that is similar in specs to their parents' tablets, but designed specifically for their needs and pre-loaded with content that they want.
