Google's Nexus 7 is one of the best small tablets money can buy. And although its not strictly marketed as a kids' slate, its restricted profiles setting let you set specific limitations for your child's profile. The device also boasts a gorgeous full HD display that's perfect for watching movies and TV shows and integrated voice search to help your child find answers to all sorts of questions. A fast Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM provide impressive performance. At $229, this is one tablet that won't break the bank.
