New Tablet for Kids
Can anyone give me some help or advice about setting up new tablets for Kids?
My niece and nephew are getting low end android tablets for Christmas, the Tesco Hudl. They are 7 and 9 and the tablets will be personal. We will go in and turn on parental controls, but what I'm more interested in is the initial set up. Do they need (can they have) a Gmail account?
We have no intention of connecting credit cards to the accounts and will fill them up with Play prepay cards as required, but how will that work without a Gmail user name?
Mum and Dad both have Gmail accounts, could we set the girl up under mum and the boy under dad as a secondary user. We wouldn't want them to have access to the parents emails, I'm sure my brother gets sent stuff which is inappropriate for kids. We really want something that can build for the future. What I mean is, say they get birthday money and start buying music through Google, when they get old enough to cut the kiddy links it would not be nice to find all the music tied to the parents account.
Any help or web links would be appreciated. I have done some searching but I'm getting lots of results more focused on Parental control and we will worry about that next.
