The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition from Amazon brings big fun at a tiny price. Designed for kids, this tablet comes with a durable, lightweight case and a 2-year guarantee that covers breakages, no questions asked. Fire is great for apps and games as well as reading books and streaming videos, while a robust design makes it a durable device to stand up to the stresses of every day life.
Fire Kids Edition comes with a kid-proof case, to protect from drops, bumps and more. Durable and lightweight, the case is designed for small hands and is the perfect solution for parents with kids who love to cause mayhem.
Set child profiles
Parents can create up to 4 individual child profiles, putting you in control of managing and customising your kid’s experience. Set bedtime curfews and employ tighter controls on screen time and content when they are young and relax restrictions as they get older. Child profiles do not have access to in-app purchases, ads, e-mail or social media features.
Fire for Kids Unlimited
Fire for Kids Unlimited brings together all the types of content that kids aged 3-12 love – books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games - with over 5,000 titles to choose from. The Fire Kids Edition includes a 1-year subscription for Kids Unlimited at no additional cost.
Set educational goals
Use Learn First to block access to videos and games until educational targets such as reading goals have been met.
Fast and responsive
The fast quad-core processor consists of 4 high-performance 1.3 GHz cores for quick app launches, smooth games and videos, and great overall performance. Fire HD 8 offers more RAM and faster performance than Fire 7 to deliver the ultimate tablet experience.
Fire comes with 32GB of storage space for your apps and games. A microSD card slot means you can increase this space by up to 200GB, making it possible to keep all of your music, photos and movies with you too. Plus all of your Amazon content is automatically stored in the cloud for you to download whenever you need it.
Go wherever the day takes you
With a battery life of up to 12 hours and a durable design, Amazon Fire is ready to travel with you all day and survive everyday bangs or scrapes.
