kindle fire for kids

For 2014/15 the cheapest Kindle Fire in the range is the new Fire HD 6" HD model with 8GB of storage and special offers (advertising.) The smaller device size brings the price down and makes this an attractive and very portable gadget for older kids, tweens and teens.
If you want to get access to the Kindle Freetime parental controls and the Freetime Unlimited subscription service at a bargain price then this tablet is a good choice (you get a free trial and must then pay for the service.) The Amazon tablets are very well made compared to budget options that we’ve tried.
The Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition product page doesn’t yet stage how much storage the devices have, but their listings in the search results say 8GB which isn’t a huge amount, but should be fine if you regularly remove content that the kids are using.
The Kindle Fire is a great platform for reading comics and graphic novels which are very popular with older kids.
Compare to app store, choices on kindle fire for good quality kids apps are not wide.
Lots of good info, and you convinced me that kids can get a great deal with the Kindle Fire.
I have a Kindle Fire 7" HD tablet which I share with my kids, especially my 6 year old son.
Watch this video to see what you need to do make a Kindle Fire safe for kids by turning off the Wifi access.
Another new Kindle Fire feature that is great for kids is called "Immersion Reading".
I’m thinking the Kindle Fire is a good idea for kids, as long as you limit the amount of time spent.
Certainly there are good apps for kids in Kindle Fire.
Before the Kindle Fire came along, the Touch was the obvious choice for a small media device for kids.
For older kids, a Kindle Fire that can be used for reading and lots of other things is very convenient.
This is the only article I could find related to kids and the Kindle Fire so I was afraid it wasn’t going to be great.
Note that if you subscribe to Amazon Prime using the Amazon account associated with the Kindle Fire then you will be able to download instant video any time you want for no additional charge.
If Amazon include all the parental controls that we are seeing in the Kindle Fire now then this might be a good first smartphone for tweens and teens.
The Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition is a new table for 2014 coming out in October in time for the holiday season.
The Kindle Fire is, to its roots, an e-book reader, so if you are willing to buy a tablet for the reading purpose you should go with the Kindle as it also a good tablet with the features of a good e-book reader.But if you are going for screen resolution then i pad 2 is better option rather than kindle fire hd , As the market sort of pupose Kindle fire and i pad 2 both are useful in its own scenerio.
So, I think a Kindle Fire is a great idea for kids.
I have used my eInk Kindle with my kids, but there’s no doubt they’ll be more interested in the Kindle Fire with its gorgeous color touch display.

The company also introduced the $199 Kindle Voyage e-reader, which Amazon in a statement described as its “ thinnest, most advanced Kindle ever, with our brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display.” The tablet measures 7.6mm thick, with a display that packs in 300 pixels-per-inch and a front light that is 39 percent brighter than previous Paperwhite models.
The Fire HDX—which weighs 374 grams and delivers 12 hours of battery life—has Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 805 processor, which has 70 percent faster graphics than the previous HDX tablet, Amazon said.
Amazon also introduced the Fire HD Kids Edition, described as the first tablet built from the ground up on the premise that kids want a real tablet, not a toy.

Starting at $149, the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition is 6- or 7-inches of Amazon tablet goodness, which comes with a year of FreeTime Unlimited all-you-can-eat kids content and a 2-year worry-free guarantee.

Essentially, the Kids Edition is a standard Kindle Fire HD tablet — at either the 6-inch or 7-inch size — with a pile of add-on features that are designed for kids and the havoc they tend to wreak.
Amazon, however, has been spending the last couple years building out both a massive content library and parental controls in its Fire OS .
Amazon says that it wouldn’t be appropriate for kids — and even goes so far as to block in-app advertising on apps and set limits on in-app purchases.
But it also appears to be more durable than the average cheap tablet — Amazon claims it’s also twice as durable as the iPad mini.
Amazon’s cavalcade of tablet announcements this evening includes a surprisingly good offer to parents.

In addition, the company refreshed its $139 Kindle Fire HD 7 along with so-called Kids Edition models, which are basically the same 6- and 7-inch tablets, just with a two-year warranty and some robust parental controls.
(All this stuff varies in age-appropriateness, though Amazon says the tablet is primarily aimed at children ages three to 10.) Given that these are the HD 6 and HD 7, they do have front- and rear-facing cameras, though a future software update will also give kids the ability to add digital "stickers." Like you do when you’re seven.
Finally, like other new Kindle Fire tablets, the Kids Edition has room for up to six user profiles, with the option to set different parental controls for each.
Meanwhile, as we said, the Kids Edition features the same 6- and 7-inch tablets, except it comes with a rubber case and a two-year replacement plan that covers the sorts of accidents not normally included in standard gadget warranties.
All told, with the exception of screen size, the two tablets have the same specs, including an unspecified quad-core 1.5GHz processor, a 1,280 x 800 screen, an eight-hour battery, Dolby Digital Plus audio and dual cameras, with the rear one capable of shooting 1080p video.

Like the rest of the Amazon Fire tablet line-up, the Fire HD Kids Edition does not have access to the Google Play store or expandable storage, but the value of the Amazon tablet for children revolves around the easy access to kid-friendly apps via FreeTime Unlimited, as well as its sturdy — and replaceable — hardware.
Coming in 6- and 7-inch sizes, the Fire HD Kids Edition ships with a year of FreeTime Unlimited — Amazon’s heavily curated selection of children’s videos, books, apps, and — a durable case and a two-year replacement guarantee.

It’s got a rubberized back that will be familiar if you’ve used a 7-inch Kindle Fire HD, twin speakers placed on either side of the tablet while in landscape mode, which is how you’d want them for watching movies.
For a tablet as drop-dead identical to the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD as this 8.9-inch version is, using it can feel remarkably different.
Like the 7-inch Fire HD, the volume and power buttons are too flush with the side of the tablet, making them a giant pain to find.
Its optional case, though, while identical to the 7-inch Fire HD’s—which we liked—just seems too bulky for a larger tablet.
There’s also a noticeable speed boost from the Fire HD 7; the 7-inch regularly took 5+ seconds to open large HD movies, while the 8.9-inch does it in about 2 seconds flat.
Sound is just as strong on the 8.9-inch Fire HD as it is on the 7-inch, which is to say the best on a tablet, and better than most laptops.

The move to implement parental controls comes at a time when Apple’s iPad has claimed the leading position in the tablet market it helped to forge, attracting the majority of developer interest and revenue when it comes to applications designed for children, and otherwise.
Netflix, for example, which already has its own “Just for Kids” section (though not yet user profiles of its own), makes it an app some parents may want to permit for younger children, but couldn’t if opting for parental controls, due to Netflix’s “12+” age rating.
“This might be a threat for simple parental controls apps, for KIDO’Z this is not,” says CEO of the kid mode app KIDO’Z, whose software is preloaded on over 20 low-end Android tablets aimed at kids.
Developers will have to take advantage of Android 4.3’s restricted profile API in order to implement these fine-grain controls for parents, and it’s unclear what their advantage is for doing so.
But as these computers find their way into the hands of ever-younger children, Apple’s lack of more intelligent, granular controls has become an increasingly common problem for parents who want to provide a safer experience for their children.

At $329, the iPad mini is over $100 more expensive than the products it competes against from Amazon (the Kindle Fire HD, $199) and Barnes & Noble (the Nook HD, $199), as well as the Nexus 7 ($199), which has been available from Google for several months.
The Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD, meanwhile, already ship with beautiful high-definition displays that are noticeably crisper than the iPad mini, when held side-by-side; these are definitely the displays that you want in a tablet.
The Kindle Fire (left) and the NOOK HD, two $199 tablets that take on the iPad mini where it counts — the display.
The Kindle Fire HD — Amazon’s second attempt at a small LCD tablet after last year’s somewhat disappointing Kindle Fire — is all about the screen: There are no buttons or real borders surrounding the high-definition display, which means that your eyes can stay laser-focused on the content in front of you.
Below, check out a few photos of the Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD as well as a comparison of the four best small tablets on the market: The iPad mini, Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD.
The Nook HD is also very light and thin (see table below), comparing favorably with the iPad mini in terms of weight and easily besting the Kindle Fire HD.

However, the 8.9-inch version of the Kindle Fire HDX did get a significant refresh in speed and sound quality as well as a targeted push towards customers that are seeking a productivity tablet.
Also available in the same two screen sizes, the Fire HD Kids Edition tablet includes a thick, rubber case that’s framed around the tablet, specifically designed to cushion the tablet when dropped.
Customers that need to return one of the Fire HD Kids Edition tablets will simply drop it in the mail and receive a brand new tablet in return.
Interestingly, the only tablet in the Kindle Fire line of tablets to not get a refresh was the Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch tablet.
In addition to the two new Kindle e-readers announced today, Amazon has refreshed the Kindle Fire HD tablets with a 6-inch model for $99 and a 7-inch model for $139.
The Fire HD Kids Edition tablet will be shipping in late October and will be available in blue, green and pink.

With every Kindle Fire tablet, you get free, unlimited cloud storage for all your Amazon content, so you can rest easy knowing that you’ll never lose the content you love.
One ameloriating factor is that it is possible to side-load most of the apps from the Google Play store onto an Amazon tablet and a web search on side-loading apps onto Kindle Fire will show dozens of websites with detailed instructions.
New Kindle Fire tablets are powered by the latest version of Fire OS—Fire OS 3.0 "Mojito", which starts with Android and adds cloud services, a content-forward user interface, built-in media libraries, productivity apps, and low-level platform enhancements to integrate Amazon’s digital content and improve performance for Kindle Fire tablets.
One alternative is the 2012 Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet, which is still available here on Amazon.com. (The 7" Kindle Fire HD is no longer available on Amazon but you might be able to find it at a local Best Buy or office superstore as those stores run through their inventory.) If you want a larger, true HD tablet for $229, the 2012 HD 8.9" tablet is pretty compelling.
Kindle FreeTime is free on every new Kindle Fire, and allows parents to create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games, and videos they want to give their kids access to.
The books, videos, apps, audiobooks, games, and music that you buy for your Kindle Fire can also be enjoyed on Amazon apps for Windows, Mac, Android, , game consoles, TVs, and more.
Also, like the other Kindle Fire tablets, as well as the Apple iPad and the Google Nexus, the Kindle tablet line doesn’t have a micro-SD slot, so the assumption is that you’re consuming content from the cloud.
How does the Kindle Fire HD compare to the competition? In this class, the major competition would be the 2012 Apple iPad Mini, which Apple is still selling, and the 2012 Google Nexus 7, which Google no longer sells but which is still available on Amazon.
The bottom line: The Kindle Fire HD tablet is primarily intended as a viewport into Amazon content and Amazon services.
The Kindle Fire HD battery lasts longer than the previous generation Kindle Fire—up to 10 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music.
Special Offers and Sponsored Screensavers display on Kindle Fire tablet lock screens and do not appear while you are using the device.
Kindle Fire gives you instant access to the most popular free and best-selling apps to help you stay productive or be entertained, including titles like Netflix, HBO GO, Facebook, Hulu Plus, Pinterest, The Weather Channel, Evernote, and Mint.

FreeTime outright reskins the device and turns it into a completely self-contained and kid-friendly tablet that offers an easy to use interface, a totally separate application and media list just for the child, and individual profiles so each child in your household can have their own age-appropriate dashboard: the toddler can have toddler friendly games and read-aloud apps and the middle-schooler can have more advanced games and their own media library, for example.
FreeTime even unmounts the local storage that contains the media downloaded/generated by the adults using the device so that even if you have a particularly clever child that plugs the Kindle into a computer via the USB tether to explore its contents, they won’t be able to open the folders containing pictures taken by mom and dad, music, movies, or other content on the device.
Further, with the addition of the very inexpensive FreeTime Unlimited ($2.99 a month for one child, or $6.99 for a whole family with an Amazon Prime account, $4.99/9.99 without), you gain access to a massive library of hand-curated movies, television shows, and books that are constantly updated and require no extra effort from the parents to maintain or curate.
Note: As of this review, the week of 12/23/2012, Amazon has announced but not fully rolled out an upgrade to the Time Limit function that allows you to set specific hours of use (e.g. no FreeTime between 8PM and 8AM) and set educational goals wherein pure entertainment (e.g. Sponge Bob videos) are blocked until X amount of time is spent reading, using educational apps, or other parent-approved activities.
If you want to enable FreeTime Unlimited, Amazon’s subscription service for kids, you need to scroll down to the bottom of the Manage Content & Subscription window and click on the big Kindle FreeTime Unlimited button under the Use our Content header.
Or, you can limit using Time by Activity which allows you to set limits on Reading Books, Watching Videos, and Using Apps, with values between 1-6 hours before it jumps to Unlimited; you can also toggle the value to Blocked if you don’t want your child accessing one of the categories at all.

That’s significantly more than the company’s new Fire HD 6 and 7 tablets, but with Amazon claiming that its FreeTime Unlimited service is worth anything up to $120, it might just be worth it for parents looking for a capable yet kid-friendly slate.
The device, which comes in 6 and 7-inch variants, is an augmented version of the company’s refreshed Fire HD tablets, and packs a range of child-friendly features, from added durability to parental controls.

"The team has packed an incredible amount of technology and innovation into the new Fire HDX: an exclusive HDX display, a powerful quad-core processor, a 70% faster graphics engine, exceptional audio with Dolby Atmos, and the fastest Wi-Fi-and it’s still startlingly light," Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder and CEO, said.
The best device in the bunch, and perhaps Amazon’s only legitimate answer to the iPad, is the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. The tablet is the first in the market to come with a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
The company’s new releases include the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 ($379), the Kindle Fire HD Kid’s Edition (6-inch version for $149, 7-inch version for $189), the Fire HD (6-inch version for $99, 7-inch version for $139), the Kindle ($79) and the Kindle Voyage ($199).

Amazon is looking to entice kids with the launch of its new Fire HD Kids Edition — a tablet that is specially catered to and designed for children.
"Fire HD Kids Edition is a real tablet, not a toy," said Peter Larsen, vice president of Amazon Devices.
17, Amazon took the wraps off the Fire HD Kids Edition tablet, which will come in two size: 6 inches and 7 inches.
Amazon claims that the Fire HD Kids Edition beats the iPad mini when it comes to sturdiness and reliability twice over.
Amazon apparently put the Fire HD Kids Edition through the wringer to test its ruggedness and durability, considering it would be used by children.
In terms of design sensibility, the thick rubber Kid-Proof Case for the Fire HD Kids Edition screams that it is meant for children.

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is the first-ever all-in-one subscription that brings together kid-friendly books, games, educational apps, movies, and TV shows—all the types of content that kids and parents love.
The Fire HD Kids Edition includes the all-new Fire HD tablet plus 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a Kid-Proof Case, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee–for a savings of up to $95.
That includes the new Family Library feature, which means two parents and four kids can share movies, books, games and apps, and each person can have their very own profile on the tablet.
Amazon FreeTime allows parents to create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games, and videos they want to give their kids access to.
Coming soon—With Family Library, link your Amazon account to that of your spouse or partner so you can easily share apps, games, audiobooks, books, and Prime Instant Video content without changing accounts.
Essentially, the Kids Edition is a standard Kindle Fire HD tablet — at either the 6-inch or 7-inch size — with a pile of add-on features that are designed for kids and the havoc they tend to wreak.
The first is a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, the company's set of kid-friendly content that includes 5,000 games, videos, and books.

Finally on the tablet front there’s the Fire for Kids, a special package that includes a rubber case and a year-long subscription to FreeTime, a service that locks down the Kindle for kids and allows them to view video, games, apps and books.

The Amazon product page insists that you get a lot more for your money with the Fire HDX 8.9 than the iPad Air — and if you just want to watch films and TV shows, that’s probably correct.

@ AmazonWhich is the best tablet platform for kids iPad or iPad Mini with iOS or a Kindle Fire or other Android-based tablet? I have two young boys and we have both an iPad and a Kindle Fire HD tablet, plus other assorted Android tablets.
In our experience whether you choose iPad, Kindle Fire or another Android tablet there are plenty of great kids apps to choose from.
These are really good tablets with access to great content (more on that later.) If you’re really having to stretch the budget to afford an iPad Mini then you’re likely to be very nervous about your kids using such an expensive device and you’ll want to add the extended warranty which adds even more to the cost.
My kids aged 5 and nearly 7 both move happily between the Kindle Fire HD and the iPad depending on which is available and what activity they want to do.
A key consideration for younger kids for the Kindle Fire is the Freetime Unlimited subscription service which gives access to loads of kid-friendly content for a reasonable monthly fee.
As I’ve said, the cost of the iPad means that we’re much more cautious of letting the kids use it and taking it out with us! This means that the Kindle Fire gets more day to day use by the kids.
We’ve gone with a small portable 7" Kindle Fire HD and a 9.7" iPad which is great for books and apps where you want to see more detail.

→ 17 SEP 2014 The Fire HD Kids’ Edition devices come with big, removable rubbery cases and a year’s worth of Kindle FreeTime Unlimited subscription content, which is worth $60.

This version—Fire OS 4 aka "Sangria"—is built on Android 4.4 KitKat, and comes complete with handy upgrades like better performance, multi-account support for family tablets with a bevy of users, the Firefly app (from Amazon’s Fire Phone), and free unlimited cloud storage for photos.
You won’t find a 7-inch version if that’s what you’re looking for, but Amazon does have some staggeringly cheap new Kindle Fire HDs to take its place for just $100 a pop.
We’ll have to spend a little more time with the newly updated bottom of Amazon’s tablet food chain before we can really tell if these are worth the buy, but if they’re coming from a company with a storied history of razor-thin margins, these are probably going to be some of the best $100 tablets you can find.
Amazon’s Fire HDs, on the other hand, will come loaded up with verifiably awesome Amazon features; in the world of ~$100 tablets, Fire OS isn’t quite the same handicap that it is in the more premium tablet space.
But if you want to use your new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 to do more than just watch movies and browse the web, Amazon has also built a custom Bluetooth keyboard for the device.

For those prices, buyers will get unlimited access to most of Amazon’s kids’ books, including "Big Nate," "Ivy and Bean," and "Phineas & Ferb," and many of its TV shows, including "Barney," "SpongeBob SquarePants," and "Dora the Explorer." Popular kids’ apps are also free.
While it already offers a FreeTime feature, which provides a special child environment and gives parents control over usage, it is adding FreeTime Unlimited, a service that provides an all-you-can-eat plan for children’s books, movies, apps and games.
Those who already have Amazon Prime, a service that includes savings and free shipping on many items for a yearly charge, will be able to get FreeTime Unlimited for $2.99 a month per child or $6.99 a month per family.
"If you think about it, an all-new Kindle Fire for $159 is a full-fledged tablet for parents, and with FreeTime it magically turns into a tablet that is just for your kids," Larson said.
Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited offers unlimited apps, movies, and books for kids for as low as $2.99 a month.
In addition to the tablets like the iPad, Nook HD from Barnes & Noble, and the Kindle Fire HD, toy companies like LeapFrog and Toys ‘R’ Us have put out their own tablets specially for kids.
"If you are a parent this lets you sign up for services, get all the content, and trust that it has been curated," Peter Larson, Vice President of Amazon Kindle, told ABC News in an interview.
Today Amazon announced an additional feature for its already kid-friendly Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.

Parents that already own a Kindle of their own already have an account established with Amazon that allows them to purchase books directly from the device.
So how do you set up an Amazon kindle for kids account? Lie about their age? No, that is not recommended! The best way to go about this is to create another account in your name.
Thinking long term though, once your child matures to an age when you don’t need or want to share an account, those books will stay in your library.

Finally, Amazon is introducing a kids Kindle HD tablet, $149 for a six-inch screen and $189 for a 7-inch screen, that comes with a two-year warranty and a year of Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited, a subscription-only service that offers access to a curated assortment of kid-friendly apps, books and videos.
Amazon also debuted a new e-reader, called the Kindle Voyage, that costs $199 and features a glare-less screen and textured glass front.
