You may be wondering: What’s the difference between the Kids Edition & the regular Kindle Fire HD? And is it worth it to pay $50 more the Kids Edition?
I can tell you that my almost 10-year old got the Kids Edition for his birthday last year and he (and we) love it. I would definitely make the same choice again for the money — and here’s why:
- Best warranty ever — If your kiddo breaks his or her Kindle within the first two years, Amazon will replace it NO QUESTIONS ASKED. With a device for a child, you can’t beat this warranty — and honestly, with my not-exactly gentle children, that warranty is definitely worth it to me!
- 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited – This hand-curated subscription comes with over 5,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games. As a parent, you can also set Screen Limits, as well as daily limits on videos and games. (Let’s say you want them to have unlimited reading time, but not unlimited gaming time). I wrote about Kindle FreeTime a while ago – you can read my review.
- The kid-proof case — Although there’s that awesome 2-year warranty, a good case is always a necessity, especially with a device that a child will be using
