If you’re going to get your kid a tablet, you truly cannot go wrong with Amazon’s Kindle Fire for kids. It’s a robust and almost indestructible powerhouse of a device that comes pre-loaded with age-appropriate content and has some serious parental controls. Of course, as with most good things, the Amazon Fire kids’ tablet is not cheap. But today, it actually is.
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet is down from its regular price of $130.
The tablet has an eight inch display. It includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited at no additional cost, giving you access to over 20,000 books, movies, TV shows, and educational apps and games featuring characters from PBS, Nickelodeon, and Disney.
Multiple kids can use the tablet, because parents can set up to four individual child profiles. Plus, parents can establish bedtime curfews and control screen time. With Learn First, parents can block access to videos and games until kids meet their reading goals. Best of all, while in Amazon FreeTime, kids can’t access Instagram, the internet, or Alexa, and they can’t make in-app purchases without mom or dad’s approval.
The beloved and ever-popular seven inch Kindle Fire tablet for kids is down from $100 and you can score it for $60 today.
In terms of storage, you get 32 GB plus unlimited cloud storage for Amazon digital content purchases.
Note that the new Kindle Fire 10 for kids has a 10 inch screen, a more powerful CPU, and higher resolution. But for our money, we’ll stick to the Kindle Fire 8 because honestly, kids don’t need a case with advanced audio port design until they’re ready to pay for it themselves. But hey, that’s just our opinion.
