Amazon Fire Tablet
The Amazon Fire HD for kids is an excellent investment for your young child and the perfect gift for Christmas. While some parents like to go as tech-free as possible, I think there is a time and a place for everything. Why not have complete control over their screen-time and feel good offering them educational games to play like including programs like ABC Mouse, Khan Academy Kids, and Education.com.
When you buy a new Fire HD tablet, you get Amazon Freetime for a year and a generous two-year replacement warranty! You can literally drive over the tablet with your SUV and get it replaced within a few days with just a phone call. For me, this was the most important thing and the reason why I bought TWO Fire HD 10 Tablets for my 2 and 5-year-old for Christmas instead of iPads.
My special needs 5 year old has trouble articulating a pencil which has discouraged him from drawing and writing since he quickly gets frustrated. Thankfully, there is a drawing app on his new Fire HD Tablet that he absolutely loves and his drawings have greatly improved in just a couple weeks using it.
The parental controls are easy to use and you can quickly limit screen time, set your child’s age for age-appropriate recommendations, lockout certain content and more. Plus, it’s way faster than all previous Amazon Fire tablets. A great learning resource for children and an excellent distraction in the car for long rides, we highly recommend the Fire HD Tablet!
