There are many gadgets and doodads to keep your kids entertained these days, but one of the best and most affordable ways to do so is with an Amazon Fire tablet. Amazon’s Kids tablets are essentially the same as the “regular” version with some notable kid accessories and extra services. We think the Fire HD 8 Kids is the perfect size for reading, playing games, or watching videos.
In 2021, Amazon created the Kids Pro line of tablets to give older kids a device that feels more grown-up in both its look and software experience. These devices offer the same hardware as the standard Kids tablets, but with a software experience and a case that kids aged 6 to 12 years old will better appreciate.
Parents will still feel at ease knowing that the Kids Pro tablets still have all of the excellent parental controls and device protections they’ve come to expect from this Kids line of devices, thanks to the Amazon Kids and Kids+ features. Let’s take a look at what all is available for your little ones.

Battery life is up to 12 hours, depending on whether you are reading, browsing the web, watching videos, or listening to music. The speakers on the unit are dual stereo speakers, giving you better sound when watching videos, listening to music, or audiobooks.
Kids Edition Fire devices come with a kid-proof case to protect the tablet from knocks, drops, dust, and any other kid-related catastrophes. The latest edition even comes with a built-in stand. The cases are available in three colors — blue, pink, and yellow. If you feel that the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition might not hold up to certain kid activities, don’t fret as Amazon includes a 2-year worry-free guarantee. If the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition breaks, you send it back to Amazon, and they will send you a new one.
Other features of the device include WiFi connectivity, 2GB of RAM, 2 MP front and rear-facing cameras with 720p video recording, a built-in microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. You also get one year of Amazon Kids+, which gives you access to 20,000 apps, books, videos, games, audiobooks, as well as educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more.
Fire Kids Edition devices also have Parental Controls, allowing you to decide what your kids can do on their device. By default, Amazon Kids+ does not allow access to social media or Alexa, and any app purchases require parental approval. Parental control also allows you to create up to four child accounts to manage. It lets you limit screen time, set curfews, and even set educational goals.

The Fire HD 8 Kids Pro tablet offers the same excellent hardware as the standard Kids Edition version does, only with a few adjustments to make it better suited for older kids. With its Kids Pro tablets, Amazon is bringing a more mature approach to apps and the web, on top of a redesigned look and feel to these devices.
The Fire HD 8 Kids Pro tablet comes with a durable case that can handle being tossed into a backpack or a tumble off of the tablet, but with a much more slimmed-down profile. The less bubbly-looking case will appeal to older kids, as will the fun new pattern options available only for the Kids Pro tablets.Advertisement
