None, they’re too young. Bring them for a walk or let them outside for fresh air

We have a couple of old kindle fires - not officially the kids but they mostly use them - they might be young for 9 year old though. (Mine spend plenty of time climbing trees and running about too Hmm)

An ipad mini or android tablet, 7 or 8 inch, if Ipad then second hand given the price. A thick case is a must.

My daughter has a kindle fire an i hate it, so slow loading and laggy during use

A second hand I pad. Got ours from cex and it is amazing.

I have tried a Samsung galaxy and kindle fire. But they ended up being too buggy and slow.
The ki dle fire was too buggy and slow.

The Samsung galaxy didnt work out either. But the ipad has always been a hit.

Actually I have a kindle fire and it's fine. How can it be too 'young' for a 9 year old?!

Depends what you want them to use it for, mine were brought kids kindle fire's by MIL, my older DD is 8 so I hoped it would be used for reading but mainly she watches cartoons and plays on the various apps/games.
My youger DD is only 3 so not much use for reading at this point she again she just watches things on it.

Some days I wish we didn't have them as they will just want to watch things and getting anything else done is a battle, so we get to the point of having to remove them from use.

The amazon fire mentioned by @ RicStar are good. They do a kids edition in all the screen sizes and they are a good price. The only drawback is you have to use the amazon app store. No google play.
Watch out for amazon's black friday deal on them.

Something 2nd hand for the 9 year old. See what you can find on the selling pages. I wouldn't buy new because it may get damaged or broken. I really don't think a 3 year old or 6 year old need one.

May be too late - but just be aware no kids youtube app on fire. There are some third party apps (that charge) and do something similar but I have not used them. Ours are a life saver on long journeys to inlaws but I do heavily restrict use during the school week and they are not theirs / allowed them in their rooms etc.

Pricey but I would say iPad. I have tried out cheaper tablets but nothing compares to iPads. Last year DS and DD kept arguing over our iPad so we bought DD an Amazon fire and we didn’t get in with it but might be okay for you.

I’ve just seen that you have bought an Amazon fire. Amazon fire 7’s are £29.99 on Argos today (I see a post on Fb).
