“Are we there yet?”
We all know how this goes. You just started a six-hour road trip to grandma’s house, when one of your kids asks that dreaded, four-word question after only 30 minutes into the drive.
Instead of feeling like the rest of the five-and-a-half hours is going to test your limits as a parent, just hand your child a Fire Kids Edition tablet from Amazon and keep your sanity during a long drive. They’ll love the screen time and you can feel good knowing that it’s educational content.

Right now you can save up to 30% on all three of the Fire Kids Edition tablets, which are wrapped in “kids-proof” cases that come in three colors: blue, pink, and yellow. With deep parental controls, you can also have the peace of mind knowing that your children aren’t going to stumble across unsafe and X-rated material.
Trust us, your next road trip is going to go a lot smoother when your kids get their hands on these tablets. Now they can watch all the kid-friendly videos and play all the fun games their little hearts desire. Best of all: if they break them within two years of purchase, Amazon will just flat out replace them. Now that’s a parenting win.
To get the most bang for your buck, the Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet offers your children Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a service that features more than 15,000 books, movies, TV shows, and games made just for kids. It also features educational apps and games with your children’s favorite characters from Disney, Nickelodeon, and PBS.
In addition, the Fire 7 Kids Edition — which has up to 8 hours of battery life — is powered with a Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor with 1GB of memory, 16GB of storage, which is expandable up to 256GB, and a non-HD 7-inch display. This means you kids won’t get bored with all of this kid-friendly content available. It’s also wrapped in a colorful “kid-proof” case, so the tablet will always be protected from drops, spills, and hits with Amazon’s two-year “worry-free” guarantee. You know how kids are with things like this. You’ll be thankful for the case after your kids drops it off their bed.
The Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition features the same bells and whistles as the Fire 7. However, the HD 8 Kids Edition features a display that’s HD, slightly more memory at 1.5GB, more storage at 32GB (expandable up to 400GB), and more battery life of up to 10 hours.
The tablet also comes with a one-year subscription of FreeTime Unlimited (after the first year, you have to sign up for an Amazon Prime membership to continue) and the online retail giant’s two-year “worry-free” guarantee. If the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition gets damaged for any reason, Amazon will replace the unit free of charge with no questions asked. We think the tablet is completely worth the price, especially if it’s on sale.
Amazon’s Fire HD 10 Kids Edition is just like the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition, only with a larger 10.1-inch full HD display, 2GB of memory, and 32GB of storage, which is expandable up to 256GB. It also features a FreeTime setting that gives your children access to selected apps like Netflix, YouTube, and Minecraft, only after they’ve finished their daily reading assignments and spent some time with educational apps and games.
One of the best things about all three of the Fire Kids Edition tablets is they all include parental controls, so you can decide how much time they’re spending on educational and fun apps and games. If you have more than one child, you can also set age restrictions to separate content and apps for a four-year-old and a 12-year-old. In addition, you can also keep your kids away from any unauthorized websites, apps, and in-app purchases, so junior doesn’t accidentally spend $500 on Minecraft loot.
