There are so many tablets available in the market right now and I need to choose the one that is kid friendly and is built just for kids. So the winner for us is the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. We decided to get it for our toddler a couple of months ago when it went for sale for around $89.99 I think for 32gb, regular price is $129. I can say that this tablet just amazes me. There are so many kids app, books, videos to choose from.
Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet, 8″ HD Display, 32 GB, Blue Kid-Proof Case
The tablet is inexpensive compared to the other tablets or iPads in the market. I don’t think I will spend hundred of dollars for a gadget for my toddler, not just yet. This tablet is amazingly fast and the fact that you can insert a memory card up to 250gb is a huge plus! You can download lots of apps however, not all are visible when there is no wifi connection. I would love it more if there is no limited access on the contents, this would be perfect for in-flight and long car rides!
It also has parental control so you can balance your kid’s education and entertainment. Since my son doesn’t know how to download apps yet, we just downloaded educational apps and videos for him. I didn’t set up the screen limit yet because my son is good on giving it to me when I said time’s up. I usually allow him 1-2 hours per day. It charges fast and battery life lasts for 18 to 20 hours for us since my son just doesn’t use it all the time. It also includes Amazon FreeTime Unlimited for 1 year and after that you have an option to continue it or you can cancel your subscription by visiting parents.amazon.com or https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/contact-us.
I’d say that this is a smart mom buy, not too expensive and it also comes with a 2-year worry-free guarantee which includes coverage for anything that happens to your Fire tablet. The box includes the tablet, amazon kid-proof case which is really good and sturdy, power adapter, usb charging cable.
