Requesting suggestions for very cheap, decent quality Android small tablet for a 7 year old boy.

My son is 7, and wants very much to play Plants vs. Zombies and the new Angry Birds Go! games, but none of our iDevices in the house will support iOS 6 - plus, he's getting old enough that I don't necessarily want to hand him my phone to noodle around on.
He's already getting a 3DS from Santa, so I probably shouldn't (and won't) buy him a tablet also, but I've been looking around and it's getting more and more tempting.
Can you suggest a very inexpensive (under $100 for sure) tablet that runs Android that is compatible with the Google Play store (I already have a Kindle Fire and neither game is available for that platform either)? We are an iOS house, and the Kindle is the first non iOS machine I've used at home in a long, long time, so assume that it has to be:
- sturdy and non-frustrating for a small boy
- easy for mom to update as needed
- wifi only
- would be used for a few app games and probably some YouTube. No email.
- In a perfect world it would have a camera so telepods, etc. would work with it.
This probably doesn't exist, but if it does, what would you suggest?
