Free time is a must have

"Apple’s iOS doesn’t get anywhere near what Amazon offers in terms of time of day restrictions, time limits or now goal setting, as with FreeTime." – TechCrunch

Not a toy - a complete tablet

Latest generation Fire HD

A full-featured Fire HD 6 or Fire HD 7 tablet that includes a beautiful HD display and Dolby Audio that's perfect for watching movies like Finding Nemo, plus a fast quad-core processor that ensures quick app launch times and smooth games and video. The Fire HD Kids Edition tablet comes in black (with blue, green, or pink Kid-Proof Case), 8 GB or 16 GB of storage capacity, and a 6 or 7-inch display.

Unsurpassed reliability in its class

With a Gorilla Glass display and rigorous testing, Fire HD is unsurpassed in reliability among tablets for kids.

Front and rear cameras

Fire HD Kids Edition has a 2MP rear-facing camera that allows for high-resolution photos and 1080p HD video, and a front-facing camera that's perfect for when you want to set up video calls between kids and grandparents.

Amazon FreeTime camera and photo software lets kids explore their creative side with fun editing tools like adding stickers and drawings on their pictures. Parents can easily print them to hang, choose to share with friends and family, or auto-save to Cloud Drive with free unlimited cloud storage for photos taken with Fire HD. As always in Amazon FreeTime, kids are blocked from posting photos to social media.

and kids will think it's made just for them

Designed with kids in mind

Fire HD Kids Edition starts in Amazon FreeTime, which is built from the ground up just for kids. The background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design, they only see the titles that they have access to see, the home screen carousel shows their recently viewed titles, and they can even navigate visually to content based on characters or topics—for example "Elmo," "Dinosaurs," or "Puppies.”

Profile for kids

Parents can create up to four individual child profiles and choose titles from their own collection of content that they want to give each of their kids access to. It's like giving each kid their very own, personalized tablet. A child’s profile does not have access to the Fire HD built-in web browser, in-app purchases, email, or social media features.

Profile for parents

Parents can take Fire HD Kids Edition out of Amazon FreeTime using a password. Fine tune settings, download apps, or share kids’ drawings with family on Facebook. You can choose specific books, videos, and apps for your child to see in Amazon FreeTime from your library or when you purchase new content from

Best selection of digital content. With hits kids love from PBS, Nickelodeon, Disney and more

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 shows, educational apps, and games. You don't have to spend time guessing what your kids will enjoy. The Kids Edition includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited at no additional cost. Learn more

Best selection of digital content

In addition to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, Fire tablets give parents instant access to millions of movies, TV shows, books, Android educational apps and games—including Disney Jr., Angry Birds, Minecraft, and more. On or the device, parents can hand-select which titles kids can access in Amazon FreeTime.

FreeTime for kids is awesome
"FreeTime is AWESOME. Age appropriate for each kid and the parental controls are priceless. My son has to read books for 30 min each day before it unlocks videos and games." – Valerie

"If you set up separate profiles for each child, Kindle will even recommend books that are likely to appeal to them. We also really appreciate the granular controls in FreeTime; I prefer allocating unlimited time to reading and then less time to apps and video usage." – Brian

"I use Kindle FreeTime & it is PERFECT!!!! I can use the apps that FreeTime has, but also add other apps like Angry Birds, Temple Run, etc." – Whitney
First ABCs. Then Dora.

Screen time limits

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—for example, you may choose to limit videos and games, but make reading time unlimited. FreeTime blocks stores and in-app payments, so you don't have to worry about additional expenses. Plus, a child's profile does not have access to the built-in web browser, email, and social media features.

Set educational goals

Learn First and Bed Time features extend Amazon FreeTime's existing Daily Time Limit controls. Parents can block access to games and cartoons until after educational goals are met, and set when FreeTime may be used.

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. Learn more

Size: 7 Inch DisplayDigital Storage Capacity: 8Color: Blue
As a family who owns multiple Fires in different iterations, I was thrilled when the kids’ version was announced. All three of my children received one. From their perspective, they were thrilled and loved it. I gave them far more time than usual to break them in over a 1.5 day period just to make sure everything was fine. Sadly, it wasn’t.

First, let’s call this thing what it really is. This isn’t a Fire designed from the ground up with children in mind. It is a basic Fire 7 HD with an altered OS that is tightly integrated into the Free Time Unlimited app, something that can be added to ANY Fire currently on the market. That’s it. Yes, it comes with a snazzy case and a longer warranty, but it’s still just a slightly altered Fire 7 underneath it all.

The issues began within the first hour of use and echo what most of the negative reviews highlight.

1 – Terrible battery life and slow recharge rate
My three-year-old first generation Fires last far longer and charge faster.

2 – Case Isn’t Impressive
When I first saw the case introduced, I imagined something rubberized with a protective cover over the screen, possibly even water resistant. No. It’s simply a piece of molded foam that you press the Fire into. There is absolutely nothing to protect the screen, reminiscent of the cheap EVA foam cases you pick up on eBay. I would not have felt comfortable simply putting them in a bag without something to cover the front. Plus, they are very easy to remove.

3 – Frequent lock-ups
We were averaging at least one lock-up per hour of use. And keep in mind that I had three of these, so it couldn’t have simply been a bad device. I was hard-resetting them like crazy. And this doesn’t count the times they randomly ran slow.

Took off one star. Storage is atrocious (less than 5 gb available, and it fills up in no time), and Amazon makes it incredibly hard to delete content stored in a FreeTime profile. The easiest and most efficient way to delete content is to do a factory reset, but be warned, the tablet will be out of storage again in 24 hours. At this point, I do not recommend this tablet at all. Go for a regular Kindle instead and get 16gb of storage.

Original review:

The problem is not the tablet; it's Kindle FreeTime Unlimited. The tablet is sturdy and the case, although bulky, is perfect for kids. The tablet just arrived yesterday so I can not comment on how well it performs over the long term, but this will be our family's 6th (7th? 8th?) Kindle and I expect it to be as durable as the other Kindles we've had.

So on to Kindle FreeTime Unlimited... the idea behind this service is great (it's pretty much a library of age-appropriate apps and books), but the execution of it is terrible.

So what's wrong with it?

1) In a regular Kindle, only the books that I've downloaded appear on my device. With Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, ALL of the books and apps available with Kindle FreeTime appear on the child's Kindle. So what's the problem with this? For one, it's just plain difficult to navigate because there's way too much content on the screen and there's no way to sort it. Two, there are certain books and apps that Amazon might deem as age appropriate but I do not want my child playing with and there is no way to filter them out. So if I want him to read Curious George but skip the SpongeBob books, I'm out of luck.

2) My child is able to read books I've downloaded from our local library using the Overdrive and Blio apps.

Worst software and customer support ever!

I am so disappointed with Amazon on this; I have had no problems with any of their products or their customer support in the past (on average, I place 2-3 orders with Amazon every week), but this product and their customer support regarding this issue has been abysmal and atrocious.

As MANY other reviewers have noted, you run out of space VERY quickly on this (we've had ours for about a week) and we got the low storage notification. And sure enough, it disabled wifi and usb file transfer because there was low storage. Because it disabled wifi, it wouldn't let us log in to the kids' profiles to delete apps. If we can't delete the apps, we can't enable wifi. If we can't enable wifi, we can't log in. Vicious catch-22.

So I called Amazon. First person I spoke with took down all my information (even though I had initiated the call through the website and selected the device) and then said she couldn't help me and would have to transfer me. I get transferred and the connection is terrible; I could barely hear the second person.

The second person said that I have to turn the device off and back on. I told them I had already done that and it hadn't solved anything. They said I would have to do it again. So I did it, and of course, nothing happened. She then says she has to reset something on her end so that we can log in. I explain that it doesn't make any sense that we would have to call in and spend 20-30 minutes on the phone every week to be able to log in to our device. She says there's nothing she can do. Eventually I am able to log in to the kids profile, but when I try to go into settings, it just freezes. So I still can't delete apps. We also get disconnected.

I call Amazon back.
