Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition

The kids have been testing out the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet*(£99.00) for the past few months, which comes in an awesome kidproof case - a life saver! With 1 FREE  year of Fire For Kids Unlimited, it will help you keep the kids entertained, while offering plenty of educational apps and features too.

Amazon Fire Kids Edition is available in two sizes: a 7" with 16GB and the 8" with 32GB. We have the 32GB option. You can also add external memory, if you wish which is great if you need more storage. We needed more for cartoons and movies when the kids had no access to the net.

You can  choose between the Pink, Yellow and Blue case. The device features an 8" vibrant HD display and up to 12 hours of mixed-use battery. We took it with us when we were travelling to Paris and Poland and it lasted really well and kept both kids busy.

 Fire Kids Edition  parental controls allow you to manage usage limits, content access and educational goals, while entertaining children within a safe kid-friendly environment. I tend to let the kids use this tablet, rather than the iPads these days, as it feels safer in terms of available content and the fact that they won't be able to smash it. (We had to replace the iPad screen 3 times!) Mia is only 2 and she takes tantrums over the silliest things, so the kidproof case is a must.  The device is covered with a 2-year worry-free guarantee, so if it breaks it will be replaced for free with no questions asked! Fab!

 Mia isn't into educational apps yet and she usually watches Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol in the video section, but Zac can definitely get more use out of all the features. He absolutely loves reading and he's been downloading various books etc. Some of the apps we like include: Angry Birds, Disney Life, Youtube Kids and of course various Peppa Pig apps for Mia. One awesome app that I hope Zac will use more soon is Anitales, which lets you create stories, but it's quite complicated, so I have to give him more time.

 Parents can access a dashboard which provides daily activity reports of their child’s device usage: videos watched, books read, apps or games played, websites visited etc. You will know how many minutes were spent on a particular title and how that usage may have changed over the week. Such a great feature!

Overall, I am a big fan of the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition and so are the kids. I would love another one for Zac in blue or yellow, so they don't have to share this one. Zac is a little geek and Mia is very jealous, so there have been arguments over who gets it, despite us having plenty of iPads and other devices available. They just love the fun case and the Fire For Kids Unlimited.
