AL DíA: Tablet Sales Slump, Increased Media Access for Youngsters

This really isn’t a surprise. As more devices find their ways into kids’ hands, leftovers from adults and older siblings, tablets are considered “throwaway” devices these days. Tablets, on a downslope, are finding their way into recycling bins everywhere. Who better to recycle a tablet with than a child who may not have high expectations for a faster device?

New research has unearthed a dramatic increase in the number of young children who have their own tablet device–42 percent compared to 1 percent in 2011

The research from Common Sense, which examines media use by kids ages 0-8 and is the third installment in an ongoing series that tracks media and technology use, also uncovered an increase in the amount of time children spend with mobile devices–48 minutes, up from just five minutes in 2011. The Common Sense Census: Media Use by Kids Age Zero to Eight is based on a large, nationally representative sample of respondents and replicates methods from 2011 and 2013 to gauge how media environments and behaviors have changed over the years.
