If there is anything my children love, it's a new tablet to help me to try out and review. We use tablets daily in our family. Some are used for fun, but usually we use them with out homeschooling. This tablet was one that I was really hoping that I could have specifically set up for my smaller kids, as the case looked more small child friendly.
When the iRULU tablet arrived, the first thing I noticed was the rubbery case. It's a thinner rubber case, but it seems to be pretty good at protecting the tablet from bumps and very minor drops. However, I wouldn't trust it to protect the tablet from a hard drop. You will still want to keep an eye on your kids if they use it.
So, what exactly is the iRULU?

As I have played around with this, the one thing I LOVE is that I can set up a restricted profile for my kids. What does that mean? It means that I can use the tablet just like any other tablet. I can use YouTube, Chrome, shop on Amazon, get online, listen to music, get into the app store, etc...
With my kids, they can ONLY access what I have authorized. They are allowed the educational games, etc... However, I have them locked out of the YouTube and Crome (internet) areas. I don't need my small children getting into those.
The picture quality is great. It is clear, and has no issues with lines, pixels, or any discoloration. The audio is clear and has no issues. The only thing I would change with the audio is that it sounds like it comes from the back of the tablet. Due to that the audio is muffled when it is laying flat.
One big issue I had was in the Children's World area. I set up my pin code, but when I went into the settings in Children's World, it would say my password is incorrect. After a few minutes on Google, I discovered this is a different pin code! The default is 1234. I had instant access. I went into the Parent section and changed to my pin code. I was also able to set up how long they can play, and then how long the tablet will be locked until they can play on it again! How wonderful!
