Amazon's Kids Edition Fire Tablets are starting at $80 right now

Amazon's Fire Tablets are super popular because of their affordable prices, so when you can save even more on them you shouldn't miss out. The Fire 7 Kids Edition (opens in new tab) is currently down to just $79.99 from its regular price of $99.99 in your choice of blue, pink, or yellow. If you want something a little bigger, you can grab the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition (opens in new tab) for $99.99, which is $30 lower than it normally sells for.

Both options come with a year of Amazon's FreeTime Unlimited (opens in new tab), which is a $119 value. Amazon offers a two-year worry-free guarantee on the tablets, so if your kids happen to break the tablet Amazon will exchange it with no questions asked.

The tablets have access to tons of kid-friendly content and media. Unfortunately, they don't have much internal storage, so you'll want to add a microSD card (opens in new tab) to your purchase so that your kids don't run out of space.

  • Can they run the play store?
  • Yes you can if you do some snooping how to on the interwebs
  • Just search on YouTube. They'll walk you through it. It's like four easy steps. These little tablets are the best bang for the buck.
  • Just keep in mind the screens are not gorilla glass and scratch stupid easy. Since they scratch with hard plastic,  I am assuming they have cheap plastic screens. Beware, you will absolutely need some screen protection. 
  • My grand children have these and love them (agrees 6 and 4). With parental control apps from the Amazon store can be loaded. The curated listings of books and games are comprehensive. Overall these are a good value, and have held up well under constant use and abuse.
