I’ve found the mother of all Christmas gifts this year. If your children haven’t asked for this it’s only because they don’t know it exists. My son has been stealing my tablet for two years but now thanks to the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet that’s no longer a problem. The Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet is a tablet made solely with children in mind.
Features of the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet
The new Fire HD 6 or Fire HD 7 tablet comes with 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a Kid-Proof Case, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee—up to $95 in savings.
This is a real tablet, it’s not a toy. A quad-core processor for great performance, a vivid HD display, front and rear-facing cameras, and Dolby Audio.
Built for even the toughest kids—Enjoy the peace of mind with a 2-year worry-free guarantee—if they break it, return it and Amazon will replace it for free.
The Kids Edition includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited so kids get unlimited access to 5,000 books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games—at no additional cost.
Starts in Amazon FreeTime—Built from the ground up for kids, the background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design. Kids can navigate visually to content based on characters or topics. Parents can exit Amazon FreeTime mode with a passcode.
Awesome parental controls—Personalize time limits, set educational goals, and choose which titles kids can access from your own personal content collection.
And sure to be a big hit with your kids. You can take and edit photos in Amazon FreeTime—Snap photos within Amazon FreeTime mode using front and rear cameras located on the tablet. Fun editing tools lets your kids explore their creative side by adding “stickers”, drawing on their pictures, and more.
Kid-Proof Case —Durable, lightweight case to protect against drops and bumps caused by kids at play.
It’s so easy to set up so even if you’re not tech savvy you’ll find this tablet so easy to use. My eight year old can easily find his way around Amazon FreeTime without my help. The best part of the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet is that I don’t have to worry about what he’s being exposed to and he has the freedom to play whatever he wants. My son now has access to tons and tons of books, kid-friendly apps, and videos. While I was sure to add some fun games I was also able to add some math learning apps to help my son.
You’ll find videos, games, and books from Disney, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, Nick Jr., PBS Kids, and so many more. If your children love certain characters they can easily search for books and games based on those specific character; Dora the Explorer, Marvel characters, Disney Princesses, Spongebob, Elmo, Arthur, Go Diego Go!, Cars, Bob the Builder, Scooby Doo, and so many more that I can’t list them all. What I’m trying to say is that FreeTime offers so much and your kids will love how easy it is to find the characters they love in books, games, and videos. The Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet offers endless hours of entertainment; perfect for those long car rides, sitting in a waiting room at the doctor’s office, or just for every day play.
Within minutes of setting our tablet up my son of course dropped it (because that’s what kids do) and the kid-proof case kept his tablet from breaking. It’s a soft case but adds cushion and a little grip and it’s made strong enough to hold up to children. I certainly wouldn’t throw it but I believe it’s strong enough to hold up to quite a few falls and that should be expected. Kids will be kids.
The parental controls give you control over everything such as content, your FreeTime Unlimited Subscription, Daily Goals, Time Limits, passwords, camera on and off, and the ability to add and remove profiles for each child which is a great feature if you have more than one child in your home so there’s no fighting because they’ll each have their own account.
Where can I buy it and how much does it cost?
The Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition is normally $149 for a 6″ tablet and $189 for a 7″. As of 12/11/14 I noticed that they’re currently on sale with prices starting at $119 but I’m uncertain how long they’ll remain at that price. You can read more about the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition tablet and purchase it on Amazon.
