The decision to buy your kid a tablet has been made easier by quarantine and the need for at-home entertainment. Choosing which tablet to buy for your kid has been made easier by Amazon.
Amazon’s line of kid-oriented Fire Tablets nail the categories that parents and kids care about most: a wealth of safe, fun, and recognizable content, built-in parental controls, a variety of sizes, and a durable case with a kickstand — all at price points that can be made to work for your budget.
Each Fire Tablet purchase comes with a free year of Amazon Kids+ (like Amazon’s version of Netflix for little ones, plus games, books, videos, and music) and a two-year worry-free guarantee. The included kid-proof case offers a great first layer of protection, but if a more serious mishap comes up, Amazon will replace the broken tablet free of charge and free of questions.
It’s hard to pin down a better first tablet than the Fire 7. It’s easy to handle, grippy, and weighs just over one pound. The awesome price point comes from opting for a 1024 x 600 display rather than an HD one, but excited little ones are bound to be more concerned with the 20,000 apps, games, and books they have to choose from.
For more comfortable streaming or more room for touchscreen activities, Amazon’s largest kids’ tablet has a crisp 1080p display. The 10-inch model also introduces upgrades such as longer battery life (now 12 hours), 32GB of storage, and a speedy octa-core processor.
