    Awesome!!!!!! Literally has everything for my toddler. She enjoys Elmo and Peppa pig. Both have educational games, and she’s still able to watch actual tv show through Amazon prime . Great purchase. Perfect for on the go road trips, and long flights ✈️. Love the handle and cute cover.

    Amazon's Kindle Child's Tablet

    The price is right. Less than $20 bucks for a year subscription. The first year is free. It's a little slower than I'd like and has a tendency to frustrate kids as it tends to freeze up frequently. Additionally, it's fairly easy to switch from the child's profile to the adult profile, which opens them up to your Amazon account and internet via your email.

    Perfect tablet for my son. My son is very destructive when it come to electronics and knowing there value. But with this fire tablet with the extra case and padding they put on this. He has been able to enjoy it with no disruption even with being rough with it. It runs fast on wifi networks and plays hundred of movies tv shows and educational games for your child to learn with. I would recommend to anyone with a child that goes through alot of tablets lol

    We were looking for a good tablet for our almost 2 yr old grandson. Something of good quality and sturdy enough that it would not break if dropped. This has been so far a great tablet. The case cushions and protects the tablet and the he can watch his videos in a good quality screen. You can add apps like Netflix or YouTube. It comes with videos for kids and you can set up your child’s profile and set parental controls. This is a great purchase and we’re very happy with it!

    This tablet was perfect. My purchased it for my 2 year old but he didn’t like it because we couldn’t put YT Kids on it so I ended up returning it. The pricing is reasonable and it comes with the cutest Mickey Mouse case.

    This is very good option for Kids. If i talk about tablet itself it is not that powerful or not so fast. However if you are buying for kids , then it shouldn't matter. Overall a good tablet with 1 year of amazon kids subscription.

    Great purchase. I did not find the latest versions since they were out of stock. This one fits the bill for right now and will hopefully upgrade once she gets older.
