Why is the Kindle Fire HD so great for kids?
This device is a decent price for what is included. It has a bigger screen than most tablets that are supposed to be designed specifically for kids. It provides a decent amount of work space.
The bumper case that covers device is specifically designed to take a beating and you just know that your kid is going to drop it at least once or twice. Insurance is included rather than being optional, so when that inevitable accident does occur you are covered.
There is the option to create multiple profiles so that more than one child can use the device. This means that each child has a separate profile so when they log in they see the apps that are suited to them the best. A parent can set up time limits for usage so that can monitor the amount of screen time that their child has.
The Kindle FreeTime Unlimited service offers a subscription to special content just for children and is selected for suitability according to age. This means that kids are offered choices about the content that they want and the parent does not have to pay anything extra. The device comes with a free trial of this for one month, after which time there is a monthly fee.
The kids Kindle Fire HD tablet also has an Immersion Reading feature synchronizes the written text within an eBook together with an audible voice track. This allows kids to see the words being highlighted as the book is read to them. This can help kids who are learning to read or want to improve their reading and spelling.
This device weighs just 345 grams so it can be comfortably held in one hand. This is perfect for the small hands of younger children. The operating system of the Kindle Fire HD kids edition is Amazon Sangria which allows kids to navigate and offers a large amount of built-in parental controls so that activity can be limited. There is no access to Google Play’s store and no expandable storage but the hardware is durable and can be replaced.
The Kindle Fire tablet is extremely affordable and provides families with a higher-end device that out-performs many of the kid’s tablets already on the market that are just over-priced toys. The release date for the kids Kindle Fire is October 21, 2014, and is available for pre-order from Amazon.
