These are three different tablets for different needs. One might be just what you need for the last minute gift. And yes, they are all Androids.

For a family tablet, there is the VINCI MV Family Tablet which is a 7-inch Android 4.1 tablet designed specifically for families with young children up to nine years old. VINCI MV comes pre-loaded with five VINCI Curriculum apps, Kids Library app samples and 12 VINCI music video titles. Additional Curriculum apps are available for purchase through VINCI Kids Library at

"VINCI MV is the ideal family tablet because it offers parents all the features of an adult Android tablet, including email, Skype and Google Play, but it can be safely shared with children," said Dr. Dan Yang, creator of VINCI. "The VINCI family tablet is affordable, rugged and provides children access to award-winning content that is fun, educational, age-appropriate, safe and commercial free."

Also included with the VINCI MV are a leather case, travel charger, USB cable and earphone with microphone.
