I won’t pretend to be super mom right now. When we are headed out for any good length of time, I know that I need to bring my smart phone or tablet so that when Lennox gets whiny, bored or even tired, we have something for her to play with. Whether is running errands, road trips, sitting and waiting for doctors appointments its inevitable that she will get bored and want to play a game or watch a show. I let her do just that. I honestly don’t think there is much point in fighting it when we are out. Unfortunately our beloved iPad took a crash bang SPLAT and the screen has cracked and doesn’t seem to be working very well. This is where our new T-Mobile 4G tablet came into the picture.
When the iPad met its demise, we made due for quite some time but recently I got fed up with trying to deal with it, so we headed to Walmart to see if there was an inexpensive tablet that would work for our family needs. We headed to the electronic section and saw a wide range of prices and tablets.We looked through all the options and price ranges and finally settled on the T-Mobile Trio AXS Quad Core Tablet. We are so impressed with this tablet, I don’t know why I waited so long to get a new one! This tablet is just under 8″ in size (perfect fit in my purse for on-the-go), has both WIFI and 4G connections and runs the Android OS. The price point was under $200 ($179) and comes with 200MB of free data every month – no contract required! If you need more data they have some great additional plans that are contract-free and start as low as $10. We don’t always need data when we are out and about but having the ability to connect when needed was a GREAT featured, especially for free.I call this a great on-the-go tablet due to its size and functional flexibility. This week we had a dental consultation for some dental work that Lennox has to get done (that’s a whole other story!) and she was very nervous. I tried to explain to her that they were just looking, not doing anything, but she couldn’t get her mind off of it. We arrived a little early and I let her bring in the Trio tablet with her.
She sat in the waiting room playing her games, as well as in the exam room while we waited for the doctor to come in. She even talked about her game with the doctor. This even seemed to put her at ease some.
When we purchased this new tablet, I also picked up this kid-friendly tablet case. When our last tablet broke, we didn’t have a good case on it – so I figured from the get go, having a good kid-friendly case was a good idea! If you head to Walmart to buy a T-Mobile Trio AXS Tablet, make sure to check out all the cases they have – they have a great selection!
Finally, the ultimate test for this tablet was the Lennox test! I handed it over to Lennox and she could figure out how to turn it on, get to an app and start using it. I would call that Kid-Approved! A happy kid, equals a happy mommy! Super mommy or not!
