Amazon’s Fire HD 8 is one of my favorite small tablets… not necessarily because it’s the most versatile, but because it’s a pretty good tablet for a pretty good price… and if you feel constrained by Amazon’s app ecosystem, it’s pretty easy to add the Google Play Store.
But if your a parent looking for a tablet for a child, Amazon’s Fire Kids edition tablets come with a sturdy case, parental controls, and a 2-year “worry-free guarantee” that means you can get a free replacement if your kid breaks the tablet.
Normally you pay a hefty markup for the Kids Edition tablets: The Fire 7 tablet has a starting price of $50, and the Fire HD 8 goes for $80 and up, but the Kids Edition models start at $100 and $130, respectively.
But right now Amazon’s offering bundle deals that let you save $50 when you buy a 2-pack, which means you can pick up two tablets for as little as $150.
