However, we found that it's the tablet's software that really shines. The tablet can be set to Child, Teen, or Adult mode with dashboards that are appropriate for each age. Parental controls are very robust, and the tablet even comes with a complimentary year of FreeTime Unlimited, which is an Amazon library created for kids 10 years and younger. (It costs $2.99/month after your first free year). It has access to thousands of videos, books, and children's programming.
Another standout feature is the tablet's two-year "Worry-Free Warranty," which covers any type of accidental damage with no questions asked. Children can be very rough with gadgets, and knowing that a cracked screen can be taken care of with no hassles makes this tablet a no-brainer for kids.
Coupon code "KIDS2PACK" can also be used to lower the price of two Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablets (opens in new tab) from $199.98 to $149.98. However, we're bigger fans of the Fire 8 Kids Edition for its better screen.
