Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Coming Soon

Fire HD 10 Kids Edition

A few days ago Amazon announced that they’re going to start offering a Kids Edition of the Fire HD 10 in a couple of weeks, so now all three sizes of Fire tablets will have a kids model.

The Kids Edition tablets are the same as the regular Fire tablets except they come with a bumper case, a 1-year subscription to FreeTime Unlimited, and a 2-year warranty.

The warranty covers accidental breakages so it’s a good option for kids.

The FreeTime Unlimited subscription is designed for children ages 3-12, and it provides access to a collection of over 15,000 kid-friendly apps, games, videos, books and other educational content.

The size is a bit of a concern for younger kids, though. The Fire HD 10 is fairly large and heavy, and it’s absolutely massive with the kid-proof case. Together they weigh in at a hefty 660 grams.

The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition will retail for $199 and it’s available in pink, blue, and yellow. The release date is set for July 11th.

$200 seems a bit steep for a kids tablet but Amazon is selling 2-packs for $299 for a limited time. That’s not bad considering the regular Fire HD 10 sells for $149.

  1. Brilliant idea. I already use two for my children. I have tried others and monitored their use through different accounts. The fire tablets are easier to use. This makes it easier to control content and prevent a lot of unsuitable material to getting through to young children. As to app usage, I can attest they will use a lot as fads go. I am not a fan of amazon, however they have it covered on the children’s accounts. That is all that matters.
