So why choose the Amazon Fire Tablet Kids Edition? For starters, it's kid-proof — in more ways than one. Each Fire Kids Edition tablet comes with a sturdy case and a 2-year, worry-free guarantee, meaning it can stand up to the inevitable drops, tosses and general mayhem. Browsing is also child-proof, as tens of thousands of websites with inappropriate content are pre-blocked — and you can easily add more. Keeping them busy without having to hover? Yes, please.

That includes content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon and Disney. No Wi-Fi where you are? No problem! You can also download videos, books, and apps for your child to check out when you're in an Internet-free zone. So whether you're on a road trip, in a restaurant or just hanging at home, this device has you all covered.
