"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
Fire HD Kids Edition starts with a full-featured tablet—Fire HD 6 or 7—for best-in-class performance.
Fire HD Kids Edition starts in Amazon FreeTime with kid-friendly navigation and personalized child profiles. Parents can switch between Amazon FreeTime and their profile with a password to access the full-featured Fire tablet experience as needed.
"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
Create personalized profiles, set educational goals and screen time limits, and choose age-appropriate content in Amazon FreeTime.
So you don't have to worry, a tablet designed to survive childhood.
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
