Amazon has several of their products for kids on sale this week, including the Kids Kindle and Kids Fire tablets.
The Kindle Kids Edition is marked down to $69.99 from $109.99. That’s $5 higher than Amazon’s Prime Day sale price last month, but this deal does not require a Prime membership.
The Kids Kindle is exactly the same as the regular base Kindle, except it comes with a cover, a 2-year warranty, and a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ for access to a library of kid-friendly content.
The Kids Kindle isn’t just for kids either; it can also be used as a regular Kindle. If you are currently in the market for an entry-level Kindle, you’d be much better off getting the Kids Kindle for $40 less because it’s the exact same Kindle minus advertisements, and it comes with a cover and an upgraded warranty.
The Kids Kindle also has different screensavers when the screen is turned off, but they’re only present when using a kids profile.

Amazon can simply names it student edition. You can still be a student at 30s, or 40s.
If feels strange for an adult to use a kid’s or kid’s name device.
There is nothing “Kid’s” about the device other than the some of the cover choices. That’s what the article is trying to tell people. You don’t have to use it in a kids profile.
Pick the “blue” cover and no one would know or think a thing. Your getting a lot of value in the bundle instead of purchasing them separately. You get a Kindle, Cover, 2-Year Warrant, & 1 year of Amazon Kids+. The cover and extra warranty are a huge plus for the price.
