MiPad Kiddies from MiMate Review

Mimate Kiddies ReviewI decided to get an educational tablet as her birthday present because she loves my tablet and we are always fighting for it.

So I google educational tablets for children and I got MiPad Kiddies from MiMate and it was budget friendly because I bought this one for R999.00 from Takealot.

This MiPad Kiddies from MiMate Review is to help mommies when they decide to search such a product for their kiddies. There isn’t enough options in the market.

I am happy for the tablet because its keeping her busy during the school holidays. It is also a learning opportunity for her too because I told her she is responsible for it, she has to make sure it  does not crack.


I love the packaging its brightness and showcases the different colours they over on their cover which is 4 colours. The quality of the box amazing MiMate has done a fabulous job on the packaging it’s something you will be drawn if it was on an electronic store shelf.

Abeerah’s Opinion: She loves it and she said it has a lot of things to do like colouring book, keyboard. Loves the pick cover it came with. In her words its fabulous.

My opinion: I love that it keeps my daughter away from my tablet (Smile), I love the packaging and cover makes it easy for children to handle. I love its pre- loaded with enough games and learning material. I am just disappointed with the quality of the camera as my daughter loves taking photos.

This was my MiPad Kiddies From MiMate Review, totally worth the price and my daughter is happy having fun and leaning at the same time.

    My daughter is one and already is showing an interest in this type of media (how scary is that!) I’m trying to wait as long as possible before I start introducing all these new things! What age was your daughter when you begun to let her play with your own tablet?

      Hi Stacey

      Your daughter she is too young to introduce her to tablets, my daughter she is 7 years old and it was a birthday girl but started playing with mine just before she turned 6 last year.:-) 🙂 let her experience life as a child like playing with Lego building blocks. Of course she will be curious just delay her as much as you can 🙂 🙂

    How fab does this look. I think technology is a way of life now and our kids are bound to be curious so things like this that bridge the gap are great. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

    I like that there are so many learning games for kids now. They can get used to technology and the responsibility of having one too. The games now are really good at teaching kids, shapes, math, reading. It’s so accessible! Hope she continues to learn and love it!

    Thank you my 3 yr old is desperate for her own tablet, I saw this but worried it would not be enough for her but if your daughter is happy with it after using yours it sounds perfect.

  • Kim Muller

    My 3yr old got one for her birthday last week, omg she loves it.
    And it also keeps her busy and quiet in the car. I love the fact that it’s educational, as she loves numbers, shapes and colour. Oh, and games too 🙂

        Hi Moipone

        I spoke to a very friendly guy at CNS marketing and he gave us a brand new tablet. a few days later it fell, there was a crack on the “ON /OFF button then the battery slowly started swelling. looks like we need to purchase a new one as my 3 year old really enjoyed using kiddies You tube.
