I know this is going to sound ridiculous but my wife and I have bought our sons a refurbished Samsung tablet each. That way they will leave our phones and my wife's iPad alone.

My job on Monday is to set them up so that when we give them to the boys they're ready to use straight away. Given that the boys are 4 and 6 I want to make sure the tablets are as child proof as possible.

The first question I have is that to download games they'll need a gmail account. So, do I just use my account, or do I set them up with their own? I assume I can hide the email and internet apps from them, and not even set the email up. Given that no-one will know these email addresses (not even the boys themselves) I don't think it will be too much of an issue.

I also don't want them to pay for any apps, or even make any in-app purchases. I also don't want them to be able to download any unsuitable apps. Any further tips on how to child proof the tablets would be gratefully received.
