Amazon announced the next generation of its award-winning 8-inch kids’ tablet: the all-new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is built from the ground up for kids with three ideas in mind:
1. Kids want a real tablet, not a toy—Fire HD 8 Kids Edition offers a stunning 8” HD display, 32 GB
of storage with up to 400 GB of expandable storage via a microSD card slot, and up to 10 hours
of battery life. Fire tablets support up to two adult profiles (accessible with a PIN) and four child
profiles that can be customised for each member of the family.
2. Parents don’t want to worry about the content their kids are viewing—Fire HD 8 Kids Edition
includes a year of Amazon Fire for Kids Unlimited, which offers more than 5,000 age-appropriate
premium books, videos, educational apps, and games — and, coming soon, Audible books —
plus access to tens of thousands of hand-selected websites and web videos as well as parental
controls—at no additional cost.
3. Despite best intentions, kids break things—Fire HD 8 Kids Edition comes with a kid-proof case
available in blue, pink, or yellow, and a two-year worry-free guarantee—if they break it, return it
and we’ll replace it. No questions asked.
“Fire Kids Edition tablets are built from the ground up to offer the content kids love and the award-winning parental controls parents trust.
