Tablets for kids? update

Does your kids have a tablet?
My kids will be turning 7 & 4 next month and I plan on getting them a kid-friendly tablet. I was originally going to get them the Kurio 7s (I think) but now I'm just kind of looking around. I want to get them soon though so I can figure out how they work and get some things programmed. I'm not looking for anything to expensive, I want to keep it around $100 each. Any suggestions?

UPDATE: We decided to go with the Kurios 7s. It can do anything like a tablet but have parental controls to block things. I'll get around to playing with them today if I can sneak away from the kids for a minute. I kind of wanted the kindle fire after all the suggestions but dh lines these ones because they also come with the rubber bumper thing. Thanks for all the input!

I was looking at I think a 8" one a while back but it might of been a different brand. Do you know if they make any good cases for them.

His is 8 inches. Havent found a case, yet. He does well though - he knows not to walk with it, only use it sitting down.

I have fun games & educational games on it. I had originally bought a samsung, but it wouldnt allow us to access abc mouse.com
And the zeki does.

My kids are 6 and 2. Only kind of tablet type thing that we have is an innotab. She uses that and plays games sometimes and  gets an hour or so a day on abcMouse.com on my laptop. Niether of them use our ipad. I just think they are too young for all that crap but thats what works for my family.

I bought both of mine the Kurio 4s. They're tough and I really like them (and so do they). They cost 100 a piece at Wal-Mart.

I was looking at those! I thought about getting the Nabi Jr but it seemed more limited.
