Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablet
Fire Kids Edition Tablet, 7" Display, Wi-Fi

Giving young children access to online technology can be a stressful experience for parents.  There are several ‘First Tablet/Computer’ options on the market, each with limits and parental controls.  The Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition is aimed squarely at this market and comes with some excellent features that may give it the edge over rivals such as Leapfrog, Samsung and Kurio.

The Fire HD Kids Edition has a 7” 1024 x 600 resolution,171 dpi display and the 16GB  model is currently available from Amazon for £99.  This is a pretty competitive price when you consider its 1280x800 HD resolution display; quad-core processor; a year’s free subscription of ‘Fire for Kids Unlimited’  with unlimited access to thousands of books, TV shows, educational apps, and games, as well as a 2 year breakage replacement guarantee.  After the first year plans are available for £1.99 per month for Prime members and £3.99 if you are not.
