What's the best iPad / tablet for kids?

My little boy is only a toddler but he loves watching a few little videos on YouTube on my phone. He's only on it for a short time each day and I'm happy with that but I'd like him
To have his own ta let instead of using my phone.
What would people recommend?
This thread is a little old now, but if you’ve landed here looking for a kids' tablet, we’ve recently updated our best tablets for kids page with lots of great options, as tried and tested by Mumsnet users and their children. We hope you find it useful.

I'm going against the grain here but I 100% would not recommend the Amazon fire.
Maybe it's just my family but we can't get on with it. Were used to Android devices and are fairly tech savvy but the fire just frustrates. We all find it awkward to use.
And then after the 1st year where some (very limited) content was included.
I cancelled the recurring payment to Amazon and now the kids bit has very few apps or games available. So my daughter just uses the adult bit and watches youtube or Disney+.
I'm sure a normal cheapy Android tablet would have been as good if not better.

If its just for YouTube pretty much any generic tablet will do, more money means better screen and better battery generally.
We have 6 fire HD 10s in our house, bit of a fiddle to get Google play on.
Personally I'd go for Samsung or lenovo if you don't want any hassle, since Huawei tablets won't have access to Google play store for apps. For just YouTube, an apple ipad is a massive waste of extra money unless you're already set up with apple hardware.
