Tablet on. Popcorn at the ready. Take time out to indulge in some escapism, without having to leave the house.

Stay tuned in any room

First thing’s first you’ll need to make sure you have the right tablet before you head into hibernation, whether it be an iPad or an Android tablet. With a wide range of waterproof devices available, you can even binge watch your boxsets while you’re in the bath. Take it anywhere you fancy, it’s easy to shift from room to room.

A tablet for all the family

A new tablet can be something the whole family can enjoy, but you can also buy one that’s designed just for the kids. There are lots of apps available to download to your device - filled with family-friendly favourites, they’ll be spoilt for choice. And because you know how clumsy they can be, you’ll also want to pick up a protective case and screen protector.
