Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 Kids Edition Tablet Review

 

Limited. Amazon's newest iteration of the HD 6 tablet was designed with kids 3 years and up in mind. It is shipped with both a thick foam bumper and accidental damage protection. Our review will clarify how this child-friendly tablet is targeting its...

Good screen, 1-year FreeTime Unlimited included, 2-year worry-free warranty, Bumper included

Limited operating system, Tight internal storage (8 GB model), Storage non-expandable, Very online dependent, No adware-free version

Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 6 Kids Edition is almost 50 percent more expensive than the Fire HD 6, but it includes one year of FreeTime Unlimited, an extended warranty, and a foam bumper. The extra cost is quite justified if the tablet is purchased with a...

Fire HD 6 Kids Edition Review: Christmas Morning

 

It's Christmas morning. Your child woke you up with an ear-piercing scream of excitement - Santa has come. Once your child sees the present you've wrapped in special paper - next to the Santa gifts, of course - they snatch it up. They realize it might...

Amazon Fire HD 6 Kids Edition

 

You can't help but notice the number of kids playing with their parents' or – the lucky blighters – their very own iPads or cheapo Android tablets. What, you haven't noticed? Well, Amazon obviously has, and is now offering a child-targeted tablet...

Fire For Kids content is impressive ; 2-year warranty

Big price premium over standard HD 6 ; No screen protector

A nice attempt at making a truly child-friendly tablet, but with a huge price premium.

Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition review

 

It's not the cheapest kids' tablet, but it adds value with all-you-can-eat access to kids books, videos, apps and games as well as a 'worry-free' warranty. Here's our Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition review.

With no expandable storage we’d advise against buying the 8GB Fire HD Kids Edition. This puts the price up to £139. If that’s too much you could buy the standard 16GB Fire HD 6 for £99. However when you factor in the bumper case, warranty and Fire for...

Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Review: In Depth

 

Amazon Fire HD 6 Kids Edition review: we check out Amazon's affordable & child-proof tablet, which comes with a year's Fire for Kids Unlimited subscription

Great value ; Kid-proof ruggedness ; Bundled subscription

Seriously chunky ; Best for Amazon advocates

Amazon’s Fire HD Kids Edition tablet is something that parents can hand to their sprogs without stress. The tablet’s durable build is massively reinforced with a chunky shock-absorbing case, while the parental controls and two-year guarantee add extra...

Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition includes 2-year replacement guarantee

 

If you haven't already handed down your old Amazon tablet to your kids, here's another chance. The kids edition of the Amazon Fire HD tablet is essentially the 2013 model of the Fire HD, but with a few crucial kid-friendly additions.

In addition, Amazon announced a refresh to its Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 tablet and a new model of the Kindle Fire HD 7.

Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition review

 

Meet the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition, a basic Fire tablet that comes saddled with a chunky, child-proof case in the box, a hefty two-year warranty just in case your kid manages to break it and a handy year's subscription to Fire for Kids Unlimited....

Let's get one thing out of the way first: the Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition is essentially last year's Fire HD 6 tablet complete with a 6-inch 1280 x 800 resolution display, a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. While it is last year's tech, it's still...

It’s a great tablet for kids, complete with a year's subscription to almost all the entertainment offerings you could need, but it's also much pricier than the base HD 6 tablet, starting at £119. Still, you do get good value for money with the Fire for...

For £119, the Fire HD Kids Edition is a decent buy that springs you with a whole year's worth of unlimited kids content, a decent protective case that can take a punch and child-friendly software that's easy for tiny paws to navigate. If you're after a...

Good for kids

 

They hold up to toddler tantrum has been thrown out of strollers and grocery baskets and still no cracks. The only down fall was I wish that I would have bought the one with a bigger memory.
