REASONS TO AVOID
You can’t do much better than the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition if you want the best gaming tablet for your child. Hard-wearing, safe, and eminently portable, it’s the perfect device for any young gamer.
First off, that bulky plastic casing could probably survive a nuclear blast. With that in mind, it won’t have any problems with being dropped or bumped every now and then. Considering how expensive tablets can be, that’s a welcome feature.
Secondly, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition has child-safety features that are truly fantastic. Your little ones won’t be able to use social media or the internet without your say-so, and you’ll also be able to limit screen time and establish educational goals.
Most importantly, the Fire HD 8 is still a great tablet in its own right. It’s more powerful than the cheaper Fire 7, packs stronger tech, and features a sharper HD screen. Considering Amazon’s two-year “if you break it, we’ll replace it” policy, we’re not sure what else you could ask for.
