If your child needs something new to break up the tedium of a long, socially distant winter, today you can get a great kid-focused tablet at a spectacular price. Amazon is selling the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition with 32GB of storage for $90. That’s $10 above the all-time low we saw around the holidays, but a far cry better than the $140 it usually sells for.
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition comes in a “kid-proof case” for extra rugged protection that includes a built-in stand. The tablet also comes with a two-year replacement guarantee if it breaks.
As with any other Fire tablet, this one inclues easy access to a variety of apps such as Netflix, Minecraft, and Zoom for remote classes. Each Fire HD 8 comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ (formerly FreeTime Unlimited) that provides free access to more than 20,000 child-friendly apps, games, books, videos, Audible books, and other content. After the first year the subscription automatically renews at $3 per month.
Getting a solid tablet for $90 with a massive library of free content is an excellent, excellent deal. Don’t miss out if your youngster has been bugging you for a tablet of their own.
