I’m not going to go into the documented and personal benefits of tablets here – from convenience and entertainment to engagement and education – since I’m always advocating them in a balanced way.

But moms often say that while they want a tab, and while their kids have them on their wishlists, many of the hot favourites are out of their price range.

I’ve been trying out the Lenovo Yoga tablet, a more affordable Android option that has all the pleasures and functions you’d expect from a multitasking tablet – camera, wifi and access to Google Play with its thousands of educational and entertainment apps .

So there are three things I love most about the Yoga:

– It has battery power of up to 18 hours (this is a massive win!)

– It has three different position modes – stand, tilt and hand. This allows for ease and convenience, and I think it’s ideal for little hands. My toddler (and I) enjoyed the literal flexibility depending on whether he was sitting, lying down, or sitting at a table. And best of all, it wasn’t dropped once, probably because it’s so light too (605g for the 10 inch model, and 401g for the 8 inch)

– The costs are really competitive for the tab market – pricing starts at R3 699 for the 8 inch and R4 499 for the 10-inch.

Both Yoga tablets have 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, Dolby audio, 5MP rear camera, wireless connectivity and Bluetooth. The tablets are available from leading electronics stores.

Here’s a short video of the Lenovo Yoga:
