Recently we were sent the RCA Venturer Mercury (RRP £49.99) to review. I previously reviewed their Saturn which is a tablet/laptop in a mini version.
Since the Saturn is used by my husband mainly i thought that it it is fab to have something that is great for the smaller ones to share as it’s size is geared towards younger users.
However when it came and we started using it it quickly became a family tablet that we use in the kitchen.
Downloading the apps is super easy via google play and as the memory is extendable with a memory card it means you can have quite a bit on there. You can create folders so your stuff and the kids stuff is separate.
For us having a tablet in the kitchen is ideal, I can check out recipes, play spotify, watch netflix or Fizz can use it to search homework topics away from the bustle of the living room. The battery life is fab so perfect for Fizz if she wants to watch a film on her own or we download a netflix series for travelling.
The only downside to it is that it can be a little slow at times and it’s not durable for very tiny hands. I have limited the amount of apps we have downloaded though so we try and then delete if we don’t love it.
I would say it is perfect for a primary school aged child for their homework and TV streaming though.
You can get the RCA Venturer Mercury from Asda with £10 off at the moment!
