Best educational apps for those long summer journeys

We at Exquisite are aware that the children of Essex are a tech savvy bunch. And with the summer holidays literally on our doorstep, it’s important to have some of the best educational apps on their tablets. The children are happy because of the allowance of screen time and the parents are happy that they’re at least learning something. Win/win!


Exquisite wanted to share with you some of the apps we love best. So if you have any long car journeys coming up then load them up and relax knowing they’re being entertained. Also included are a few of the latest and best tablets for children of all ages. Enjoy!


Loved by adults too! Duolingo introduces new words and phrases with each level that you pass. With 23 language options and a real "game" feel about it, this is sure to be popular with your kids. Find it on your phone's Google Play or Apple Store app.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition

A good one for all ages as you can simply remove the bumper when they are older (around 6-8 years old) so it looks less child-like. However, this isn't an Android tablet and there are no Google services except for YouTube.
