I had the opportunity to check out the all new Fire HD 6 Kids Edition, 6″ at the Techlicious Holiday Roadshow in Seattle recently and I was totally impressed. In fact, I liked it so much I bought another one for my daughter.
While the Amazon guy was giving us an overview of the tablet he chucked it into the air like 25 or 30 feet and when it landed it landed hard and bounced several times AND IT DIDN’T BREAK!
Finally a tablet my kid cannot break. My little guy is 7 and has already somehow dropped his sister’s Kindle when getting out of the car that then bounced across the pavement and promptly broke. She had only had it a week or so when this happened. Needless to say this is a big reason I totally love the new Fire HD Kid’s Edition Kindle. When we are at gymnastics meets or football games we sit in bleachers and the entire time we sit in the bleachers I worry that my kids will drop my phone of iPad. Now that they have their own Fire HD Kid’s tablets I don’t have to worry, because they won’t break if they drop them!
Here are some of the other reasons why I love the Fire HD Kid’s Edition tablet:
- 2 year warranty – no questions ask
- It’s a real tablet
- Heavy duty case (aka Kid Proof)
- Gorilla Glass
- USB port
- 1 year of Amazon FreeTime unlimited, which means unlimited access to 5,000 books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games—at no additional cost.
- Parental Controls like personalize screen time limits, setting educational goals, and choosing which titles kids can access from your own personal content collection!
- Cheaper than other tablets at $149
- It takes pictures!! including selfies.
When you are setting up this device for your child it will ask for their age. Then they will recommend books, apps, and shows based on what is age appropriate. My 7 year old can not access the same games that my 11 year old can.
Fire HD Kid’s Edition Apps I love
Stack the States: This is an educational game that holds my kids attention for long periods of time while they learn facts about all 50 states. Learn state capitals, state shapes, state abbreviations, bordering states, location on the map, nicknames, flags, and more.
