BlackBerry Tablet OS
If you have kids you know how they get when you're on a long car trip, at grandma's house or they are just flat out bored. Thankfully your BlackBerry PlayBook can keep them entertained with the help of some great kids apps. Now, I'm not saying you should sit your kids down with your tablet for hours on end, but when the need arises, the PlayBook can distract them long enough to let you get yourself together and who knows, they may even learn a thing or two along the way.

Math Quiz - Educational games for kids
This one is pretty sweet. Not only is it fun for kids (for the most part) but they also get to learn a bit of math. Last year my son had to do some "computer game" time for part of his homework each week, and this is something that totally fit that bill. The game is designed for ages 7 and up and features multiple levels of difficulty, timed equations, background music and more. Just $0.99 in BlackBerry App World.
This one isn't for the PlayBook but I had to sneak it in - Hangman Kids is an awesome game. You get the fun of hangman in a game designed for kids between the ages of 3 and 8. It's pretty much standard hangman, but there are pictures provided to gives your kids help and also let them learn in the process. The lite version is free so you can try it out for nothing.
Toddler Games features a few games for kids age 0-3. They are super easy to play so even the younger kids will enjoy them. In the set is Find the Difference, Clean the Ice and changing colors. The colorful animations and sounds are great entertainment for your kids so they will love this one. Free in BlackBerry App World.
When I hit the road as a kid, I had real coloring books to keep my busy. Now instead of acutal paper and crayons, your kids can color right on the PlayBook. Avalable in both an animals and dinosaur version, these coloring books will keep your kids entertained for hours. There is a huge variety of colors, undo/redo button, ability to save images and much more. You can grab each for just $0.99 in BlackBerry App World.
