When my husband and I started to think about Christmas shopping last year (2015), we wanted to get our daughters a gift that they could use for educational purposes, as well as for fun. We wanted something durable, that they couldn’t easily break. We came across the Fire Kids Edition Tablet from Amazon and loved all the features! It includes the latest Fire tablet with a kid-friendly case available in pink, blue or green, and a two-year worry-free guarantee (which is a MUST when you have destructive children). Our oldest, Brooklynn, has loved using this tablet (over the past year) to read books, watch her favorite TV shows, and play games. This year for Christmas, we decided to get one for our youngest daughter, Harlym! She is really into technology. She loves taking pictures on my iPhone and knows how to open all the apps, watch videos, and even knows how to FaceTime… so we figured this would be the perfect present for her!
I am SO glad we came across this tablet! It has everything we need and I feel comfortable letting my children use it – without the fear of them finding something on the internet they shouldn’t! After using this tablet for over a year and loving it, I am so excited to share 10 reasons I love the Fire Kids Edition Tablet from Amazon!
10 Reasons I love the Fire Kids Edition Tablet:
- I love that this tablet is perfect for on-the-go families and can be taken along for the ride…easily! Fire Kids Edition from Amazon is the perfect tablet for entertainment. With access to over 13,000 age-appropriate videos, books, educational apps and games, it will keep the kids entertained through all the upcoming holiday travel, and well into the New Year!
- There’s a 2-year worry-free guarantee. It also comes with kid-friendly durable case and a 2-year worry-free guarantee. If anything happens to Fire Kids Edition, simply send it back and Amazon will replace it—no questions asked. This is essential for kids!!
- This tablet comes with FreeTime Unlimited. Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is an all-in-one subscription that brings together all the types of content that kids ages 3-12 love—including books, videos, educational apps, and games. You don’t have to spend time guessing what your kids will enjoy. Fire Kids Edition includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited at no additional cost.
- There’s web access—but you can choose what your kids see/don’t see. With the FreeTime web browser, kids have access to more than 40,000 age-appropriate, hand-curated YouTube videos and websites.
- The parental controls are easy to use and WORK. It comes with Amazon FreeTime, a free app available exclusively for Amazon devices that gives parents a simple, engaging way to manage how kids use their devices, including innovative parental controls that encourage learning before play and that help manage screen time. You can choose which TV shows, books, and games are appropriate for your kids to watch and don’t have to worry about them stumbling across a video or show that is inappropriate.
- The shut off/timer is a MUST for parents! With Amazon FreeTime, the Bed Time feature extends FreeTime’s existing Daily Time Limit controls to ensure kids aren’t staying up past their bedtimes on their device well into the twilight hours. We have ours set to shut off at 8:10PM every night!
- I love the education goals. With Learn First, parents can block access to games and cartoons until after educational goals are met. They can also limit kids’ screen time by content type—for example, they may choose to limit videos and games, but make reading time unlimited (which is what we do)!!
- It has a high quality camera! This tablet has a 2 MP rear-facing HD camera for taking high-resolution photos and 720p video, and a front-facing camera. My two year old is a mini photographer in the making and LOVES taking pictures with her tablet!
- It’s the perfect size! It is super light and not bulky, making it easy to carry around – even for my three year old!
- Overall, it is easy to use and the perfect gift for children!! If you don’t have one, I highly suggest purchasing one. You won’t be disappointed!
