Amazon has discounted the Kids Edition of its Fire 7 and 8 tablets to the lowest prices we’ve seen on these devices, both of which ship with a kid-proof case and a year of access to kid-friendly content through FreeTime Unlimited.
Priced at $59.99, the Fire 7 Kids Edition is the cheapest it’s ever been according to price history on CamelCamelCamel, with only two previous sales coming close at $69.99. The Fire 8 Kids Edition is also at its lowest historical price with units currently going for $89.99, though this isn’t the first time such an offer has been made available according to the price history.
The Fire 7 comes equipped with a seven-inch 1024 x 600 display, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, and up to seven hours of usage time when reading, browsing the web, listening to music, or watching videos. Those specifications are beefed up by the Fire 8, which touts an eight-inch 1280 x 800 display, 32GB of storage, 1.5GB of RAM, up to 10 hours of usage per battery charge, as well as perks such as dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support versus a mono speaker on the Fire 7.
Notably absent from this Amazon Deal of the Day is the company’s new Fire HD 10 Kids Edition, which was announced last month and pushes the Fire 8’s specifications even further if you’re willing to part with $199.99 for a Kids Edition Fire tablet.
As mentioned, Amazon ships its Kids Edition tablets with a free protective cover that comes in many color options, a worry-free two-year warranty in the event that your kids destroy the tablet, and a whole year of access to FreeTime Unlimited, a platform with content tailored for kids including more than 20,000 apps, games, books videos, audiobooks, as well as educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more. This normally costs $2.99 per month for Amazon Prime members and $4.99 per month for non-Prime members.
If you’ve been thinking about picking up a new tablet for your kiddo for Christmas, now’s a great time to save some coin.
