If you have young children at home who love PBS Kids, and you feel they are ready for their own tablet, I have a great product that is not only a tablet, but also a portable DVD that your kids will LOVE!  Recently, I was sent the Playtime Pad DVD Combo from Ematic, for my girls to try out, and they are enjoying the dual feature of this product.  

Not only is a true tablet in that you can add apps, browse the web, and play music and video clips, but it also comes pre-loaded with some amazing PBS Kids content.  

This 7" HD kid-safe tablet comes pre-loaded with over 23 educational games, 120 video clips, songs and even music videos, in subjects including math, reading and more.  The apps and added content feature all your children's favorite PBS Kids shows and characters including Super Why!, The Cat in the Hat Know a Lot About That, Sid the Science Kid, Arthur, Dinosaur Train, Daniel Tiger, Wild Kratts, Ready Set Jet, and so many more.  

Setting up the tablet/DVD combo is a breeze, too.  You have to be home to access your Wi-Fi for the initial set up.  But, after that you can connect to any free Wi-Fi if you are traveling outside of your home network - that is, if you want to connect to the Internet while using the tablet.  The rest of the pre-loaded content can enjoyed without Wi-Fi in the car, on a plane, etc.  

"A 2-in-1 tablet and DVD player, the PBS Kids 7” HD Kid Safe Tablet & DVD Player is the perfect portable entertainment provider for kids!  Featuring parental controls, you can now manage and customize your child’s entertainment experience. 


As mentioned above, I was sent the Playtime Pad DVD Combo for my girls to try out, and they have been enjoying it, at home and on the go. And, this past weekend, we put up the tent in the backyard so that they can play in it during the day time, and camp under the stars at night.  After grabbing their teddy bear and pillow, they rushed back in the house to grab their new Playtime Pad DVD Combo to enjoy outside. They loved how they didn't need to be connected to Wi-Fi to play the super fun educational games, or enjoy the video and music clips from their favorite PBS Kids shows.  And, when it was time to go to bed last night, they came back in the house to grab a movie, so that they could watch it on this portable DVD player.  My girls both agreed that they not only love all the pre-loaded PBS Kids content, but that this is a 2-in-1 device.  

They can use it as a tablet, and then watch movies on it, which is cool!  And, the screen size is the perfect size for viewing a movie. When using this in the car, you can use the included easy mount strap to attach to the car seat's headrest, that way your kids have their hands free to enjoy a cold water, or snack while watching a movie.  

It is just the right size to add to your beach bag or tote for on-the-go entertaining -- 
you can even plug in headphones, too!

I could go on and on about how great the Playtime Pad DVD Combo from Ematic is, and how much fun the girls are having using it as a tablet and/or a DVD player.  I was going to get a new DVD player for the car as ours wasn't working recently, and when I was looking online a good-quality DVD player alone is about $75-80.  When you factor in that this product is also a tablet (which generally costs $75-90) for a kid-safe tablet, minus all the amazing pre-loaded educational and entertaining content, you can't go wrong with the Playtime Pad DVD Combo at only $87.99 at Walmart.  It is a steal if you ask me!  And, as an added bonus, you also get a FREE PBS Kids Word of the Week! DVD included in the box (a $12.39 value)

For all that you get, it is well worth the investment.  I am planning to buy another one so that each of my girls will have their own, and can use in the house or on the go.

Before you head out this summer for long car rides, camping trips, etc., why not consider picking up a Playtime Pad DVD Combo for your kids to enjoy.  This is one of those products you will buy for your kids, and that they will use for some time to come.  It will not be played with a few times and then put aside.  And, when they ask for new apps or content to be loaded to the device, you can access the Google Play store and add content easily through the parental control area.  So, what are you waiting for?  Buy it now for only $87.99 from
