What our experts think
This Hey Duggee smart tablet is light and sturdy and great for encouraging little ones to identify different shapes, colours and numbers. Our testers liked that all the Hey Duggee characters were featured on the tablet, as it really engaged the children who were Duggee fans.
The children enjoyed pressing the buttons and listening to the characters talk – this is fantastic for teaching cause and effect at this age. Little ones also learn through repetition so as they repeat pressing the buttons to get the desired reaction, they learn about how things work. The tablet was also good in this way as the children repeated lots of words which helps them to practice speaking and sounding out letters.
