A real tablet, not a toy

A full-featured tablet that includes a beautiful HD display and Dolby Digital Audio that’s perfect for watching movies like Finding Nemo, and a fast quad-core processor that ensures fast app launch times and smooth games and videos.

Unmatched reliability

With a durable screen and rigorous testing, Fire HD is unsurpassed in durability among tablets for kids.

Hits kids love from PBS, Nickelodeon, Disney and more

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is the first-ever all-in-one subscription that brings together all the types of content that kids ages 3-10 love—books, movies, TV episodes, educational apps, and games.

Designed with kids in mind

With Amazon FreeTime mode on, the background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design. Kids will see titles that have been selected just for them and can navigate visually to content based on characters or topics—for example "Cinderella," "Dinosaurs," or "Puppies."

FreeTime Image

Best-in-class parental controls

Amazon FreeTime offers innovative parental controls that encourage learning before play and that help manage screen time. With FreeTime, you select all of the content your kids can see, and you can limit your kids' screen time by content type. FreeTime blocks stores and in-app payments, so you don't have to worry about additional expenses.

Create profiles just for kids

Create up to four child profiles and choose a unique collection of titles that each one of your kids will have access to. It's like giving each kid their very own, personalized tablet. Kids also can't exit Amazon FreeTime mode without your password.

If they break it, we’ll replace it.

We all know accidents happen. The 2-year worry-free guarantee includes coverage for anything that happens to your Fire HD. Just return the tablet and we’ll replace it for free. It also covers Fire HD against electrical and mechanical breakdowns.

Avoid until amazon fixes wifi / storage issues. Device turns off wifi if it gets low on storage and there is no way to free up space without resetting the whole device up from scratch. turning on wifi takes you to a screen to manage storage and the total storage used doesn't add up to what is listed. My sons device shows 4.99GB used with 557MB system, 100MB system applications and 1.16GB used under my sons profile under other users. There is no way to delete the 1.16GB that he has used and regardless it doesn't all add up to the 5GB that the device says is used.

If storage space is required for wifi to be used the device should stop allowing downloads when it gets close or automatically remove content as needed.

There are many significantly poor designs to the FreeTime user interface and parental controls. It provides you as the parent with limited control without spending an inordinate amount of time setting it up. (1) Extremely limited memory. Advertised as 8GB with 4.5GB available to the user (No provision for a memory card). Even the remaining 4.5GB are not all available to you for your purposes. We have 1.44GB for 33 Apps (about half of which were already on the kindle), 0.25 GB of photos, 0.2 GB of games, only 0.013 GB of Vidoes, and 0.006 GB of Music AND IT'S TELLING ME THERE'S NO MORE ROOM. This means that you must use WIFI to watch videos and .... (2) We cannot watch videos while taking road trips b/c there is no memory. (3) The Apps page lists over 500 apps that I did not choose to have available to my kids and did not download. This is to show you what apps are available. But if you have WIFI on to let your kids watch videos, then they can at any time download any of those apps. The same is true for Videos. Most other devices have an App store that you go to if you want to search for Apps to download, they don't put all the apps on your desktop. This also makes it extremely difficult to search through and peruse apps that you've downloaded which you don't want to put your your home page yet. The same goes for videos. This may not bother you as much, but we prefer our 3-yr-old not to watch Power Rangers and Frankenstein. I can go on and on about other features that are poorly designed. However, I've spent the last 35 minutes on hold with a representative and need to ge to work.

I purchased the Fire HD 7 Kids Edition, though Amazon says the 6" edition, for my daughter's 2nd birthday. She's owned it almost 6 months and she loves it. She loves watching videos through Kindle FreeTime Unlimited the most. Daniel Tiger, Barney, Wishenpoof (sp) and Blue's Clue's all are practically on repeat. She doesn't much care for the books or games, but she's young yet.

The reason I am giving this 3-stars is because of a few factors that make this inferior to the other kindle's she can use Freetime Unlimited on. We own a 32 gb 7" HDX with 4g and another 32 gb 7" HDX with only wi-fi. However, the below pros and cons are concerning the Fire HD 7 Kids Edition

Pros
1. Durable. With the bumper on it she will often drop (or throw during a tantrum) the Kindle from the couch to a carpeted floor (about a 2-foot drop, plus distance if she's throwing it) and it hasn't broken yet. We have a screen protector on it and it's very easy to wipe away her dirty fingerprints and food stains from the screen protector (water on a paper towel does the trick). She's even spilled juice right on the screen and while it hiccuped a little (probably due to the capacitance touch screen), it was fine after I cleaned away the liquid.

2. Just the right size. She has the 7" model and it fits perfectly in both her hands or she can even hold it one handed. She's large for a 2-year-old, yes, but still, it's very portable for her. She will often sit with it on her lap or on the table and watch her shows.

3. Fast - most of the time. Videos load very fast, navigating the screens in FreeTime Unlimited is fast. Very rarely (more about it below) do we see slow-downs when loading a video or a game.

Cons:

1. Not enough storage. Like seriously lacking in the storage department. I have this same complaint against the Fire TV - 8 GB is NOT sufficient. With FreeTime, my daughter goes through and downloads books and games galore and then I'm stuck clearing them off when she gets the insufficient storage message that interrupts her videos. Even when she nears her storage limit it will start warning her, interrupting her viewing experience. Because of this I would jump at the opportunity to buy a kid-friendly bumper for one of my 32 GB kindle fire HDX's, because she uses her FreeTime Unlimited on those too and never, ever runs out of storage.

2. Freezes. I've noticed it more often as of late, but sometimes videos won't load or if she's in a game it will freeze. I then have to come and hold the power button down to have it come up and prompt to turn off and then hit the home page to exit the app, because it is otherwise unresponsive. My daughter gets frustrated by such freezes and notifies me by throwing it or bring it to me. But I can usually tell it's frozen because Daniel Tiger stops talking.

3. Older children content view-able by a 2-year old. I believe Amazon has addressed this partially, but when she first got this device she was able to access the Nickelodeon show iCarly from within the Kindle Fire Unlimited. I could not at that time find any way to restrict her viewing of that show through parental controls. That show is NOT appropriate for a 2-year-old (they talk about b**bs in the first episode). Since that time I believe Amazon has implemented a way for parents to restrict content from the FreeTime Unlimited environment, but it's a manual process. What I would prefer to see is a way for the device to use the age of the child to automatically restrict content. Obviously iCarly would be at least an 8 or 9-year old plus show, maybe even older. Perhaps allow parents to specify which age ranges they want their younger child to be able to access, up to 13+ or something (not sure any 13-year-olds are using this though).

4. Must be dedicated to the child. Because of the aforementioned abysmal storage issues, there is no feasible way for both an adult and a child to use this device with any regularity. I had to literally remove EVERY adult app I could from the main adult profile in order to free up storage for my daughter and it STILL skirts the edge and requires me to micromanage the storage to keep removing the games and books she clicks on to auto-download. Until Amazon finds a solution to put games and books in the cloud or something, I do not see any way that an adult and a child could use this device (adult at night and child by day, for example). You are better served purchasing a larger capacity HD 7 or an HDX for your adult apps.

Looking back, the reason I bought this device was the 1-year warranty and the bumpers. This was the first device of this kind I had purchased and so it was a learning experience. Going forward, I will be considering re-purposing one of the 7" Kindle HDX 32 GB to be the "kid" kindle in the future and try to get a kid-friendly durable case for that model and eventually sell or give away this lower-capacity, lower performing, Kindle.

There are a lot of great things about the Kindle Fire Kids Edition. We bought it for my son for Christmas this past year (2014), he was 2 1/2. I love the ability to be able to set it up to only allow him 30 mins per day of tablet time. I love that it is easy for him to use and he loves the many different options that are available on FreeTime. However, I unfortunately bought the 8 GB edition and that is definitely NOT ENOUGH space. I didn't realize that 1/2 of that would go to system use, so 4 GB ends up being eaten up quickly with the apps that are so large. Since he cannot read yet, he really loves the apps that "read to him" like "There is a Monster at the End of this Book", which is a favorite. But 8 GBs is definitely not enough and shouldn't even be an option in my opinion. Should be 16 GB and 32 GB.

I had my doubts about the case, but it stands up very well to being dropped or "thrown" by a toddler. Thankfully! The parental controls are great, however, I wish I could tell FreeTime to remove "Spongebob" or "Calliou" as we do not allow my 2 1/2 year old to watch those shows so I wish I could specify which characters to not let him watch/read/use apps for.

Pros:
Easy to Use
Charges quickly and lasts many days even with video and apps
FreeTime is fantastic
Parental Controls are pretty fantastic
Case is awesome (son has dropped it many times and it is still in great shape)

Cons:
8 GB is NOT ENOUGH space, wish I would have gotten 16 GB
Wish you could specify what FreeTime characters are allowed using FreeTime or Parental Controls

I have the Kindle Fire HD and love it so I was so excited for the kids edition. Overall it's a great product, just wish I would have bought the 16GB and that they update FreeTime to allow you to remove certain characters from showing up as options.

Update 2 years later:
My son (now 4) is still using this on a daily basis. He absolutely loves his Kindle. This Kindle has held up for 2 years, even from being dropped out of grocery carts, outside, off tables, etc. I am surprised that I haven ever had to return it, this case is amazing! I definitely would still recommend this product. Also, one of my cons was that you couldn't remove specific "characters" from FreeTime. This has now been updated and is no longer a CON but a PRO! There are certain children's characters that I do not allow my child to watch (i.e. Calliou, Yo Gabba Gabba, etc.) and you can easily search by name for these characters and block all books, videos, games, etc. This is a fantastic feature! Still a great product!

The concept behind this device is great -- a kid-proof, fully-functional tablet. However, where Amazon misses the mark here is the storage space. The Kid's Edition only has 8GB of storage, and Fire OS takes us almost 1.5GB of that space. What you are left with is not sufficient for most kids. My son filled his Kid's Edition on the very first day just by downloading a few educational apps, books, and one game. Then, you are constantly dealing with deleting content so that the children can get new content. Amazon should consider offering different storage sizes with the Kid's Edition.

On the plus side of this review, the free year of Free Time, the free case, and the free replacement warranty are excellent add-ons that can almost make up for the lack of storage space. However, even with all of that included, I still found that getting the regular 16GB Fire HD, case, and warranty separately was a better fit for our needs.

Amazon, please consider offering other models than the 8GB version. That would immediately take this review from 2-stars to 4-stars.

I'm hugely disappointed. I thought I was ordering a kindle with an SD card slot - all the reviews said that the Kindle 7 had an SD slot. It doesn't say it in the description - my mistake, I guess - and it's the Kindle 7 4th generation with no slot. If course I discovered this AFTER buying the ad card that was recommended to me by Amazon... But I wasn't super worried because my old Kindle Fire gone of the first) had tons of apps and games that didn't add up to 8 GB. It's screen was broken by the child, so this seemed perfect. Expandable storage, great case and Freetime Unlimited.

1) the Freetime profile can't have shows or use apps not on WiFi. At least not that ever figured out. Pointless. Most.of the purchase was for long car rides. 2) With about 4 apps (that you can't use) and a few books, it's full. If I wanted to download shows to the adult profile, I couldn't. There is no run. And there is no expansion sloy. We have owned 4 other Kindles with no complaints... I love them all. Until now. I'm stuck with a HORRIBLE product.

It is a really awesome.case, though.

We got this for our two kids to share and they absolutely love it! So does their father. Everyone has their own "profile" with their own set of videos, books and games. Although mom hasn't had much of a chance to use it yet with everyone else clamoring for it, I do love the fact that I can set up bedtimes/wake up times for each of the kids. Being able to set learning/reading goals for them to meet before they can play is wonderful as well.

I would definitely recommend this to any parent looking for a tablet for their kids. Plus the free 2 year worry free replacement plan really gives you peace of mind!

The free membership for free time unlimited is also a big bonus since they have access to so many apps/videos and books right off the bat!
