Review of Genius Kids Designer 5” x 8” Graphic Tablet for Kids

galaxy s3 covers

When it comes to kids there’s a lot of games for them but not much in the way of peripherals really. Genius recently sent over the Kids Designer graphic tablet for kids for me to review. I let my 5yr old son play with it and he likes it a lot. I then had to use it myself and I have to say for a kids tablet it’s not bad at all.


So it comes in a box which I don’t care for personally as it depicts the idea that you can actually draw on the tablet but you really can’t.

Inside you’ll find the tablet packaged well.

Included with the tablet is just a user manual and CD.

The tablet is for children so it’s brightly colored in orange, blue and yellow. The Kids Designer logo is at the top while the Genius one is at the bottom.

The working space is five inches by eight inches with dots on it.

There’s a single button on the left side.

The stylus is attached to the tablet with a wire. The stylus itself is larger and rather fat actually, it can be attached to the pad for safe keeping.

The back of the tablet is bright blue with the ID label on it.

You can use the tablet as a mouse in windows, I used it on both Windows XP and Windows 7 where it worked fine. The drivers installed automatically with no need of the included CD.

As I said the stylus is fat, it’s made for children, so an adult using it can be awkward, at least I found it to be. I found it to be good enough for basic navigation of windows, the pen is sensitive and you can push down on it to make thicker lines while drawing. I wouldn’t use it for professional things for for children is more than adequate.

Included with the tablet is a suite of fun and learning games that are cute and colorful.

The activities are broken up into three parts that are ‘For Learning’, ‘For Creativity’ and ‘For Fun’

kids12

Under the learning sections you’ll find  five activities: Travel the World, Shadow Drawing, Math Hero, Paint the Eggs, and 1-2-3.

kids13

Travel the World is a shape matching game really, they show you the shape and name of a country and you drag and drop it onto the appropriate space on the map.

kids14 kids15

Shadow Dancing is rather fun, you math the shadow to the shape.

kids16 kids17 kids18

math hero is about selecting grater than or less than of the objects shown on screen. kids19 kids21 kids20

Paint the Eggs is a memory type game. There’s a basket of eggs and you’re shown which ones are painted for  a few seconds, then they go blank and you have to paint them again.

kids22 kids23 kids24

1-2-3 is following the number drawing. When the pictures is complete it fills in colorfully.

kids25kids26

Under For Creativity you’ll only find two activities, Colorful Painter and Learning Board.

kids27

Colorful Painter is just a painting activity, free to do what you want.

kids28 kids29

Learning Board is a combination of drawing and coloring with three activities included in it actually.

kids30 kids31 kids32 kids33 kids34

The next section if For Fun where you’ll find four games: Pet Party, Magic Box, Fish-catching fun and Animal Keeper.

kids35

In Fish-catching fun you just have to draw a circle around the colored fish that appear on the right side, fairly simple but fun.

kids36 kids37 kids38

Pet Party is sort of like Whack-a-Mole really, only no whacking involved. Animals pop up from behind the bushes and you have to select the ones that match what is shown at the top.

kids39 kids40 kids41

Animal Keeper is kind of like the gemstone games out there, you rotate the pieces to make matches.

kids42 kids43

The last game is Magic Box where a part of a picture is shown and you have to select what it’s from.

    Nice review, i think I will have a try.

    you can simply use the tablet as a mouse, meaning that you can make the file in paint, Photoshop, whatever programs you can draw in. Really, how people believe the tablets help you study is by the hand motions. Studies show that when one writes something down on pen and paper, the person is more likely to remember what they wrote.
