33% off Fire HD 6 Kids Edition Tablet - Deal Alert

Amazon's Fire tablet comes in a well thought out kid's edition. If you're in the market for a kid-proof tablet that won't break the bank, this is one to consider at its currently discounted price of $99.99.  That's a $50 savings on its regular list price of $149.99.

The Fire Kids Edition sports a 7" 1024 x 600 IPS display (wider viewing angle and higher quality colors). There is a 2MP rear-facing HD camera as well as a VGA front-facing camera for things like Skype. 8GB internal storage is expandable to 128GB via a microSD slot, and Amazon gives you free unlimited cloud storage for Amazon content and photos/videos taken from the device. There's an accelerometer and gyroscopic sensor onboard, and Bluetooth for wireless headphones or microphone connections. Battery life is roughly 7 hours, and it recharges to 100% in about 6.

The device comes with 1 year of Amazon Freetime Unlimited, a service that lets your children access more than 10,000 kid-friendly games, books, TV shows, movies and educational apps, all hand curated to ensure your kids can be left alone with them. But if you prefer to further curate, the parental controls are described as “best-in-class”.

The navigation is designed to be big, visual, and easy for a young child to find new books to read, or content from PBS, Nickelodeon or Disney. The Fire Kids Edition supports up to 4 profiles, so the device can be personalized for up to 4 children.

It’s best feature may be the 2 year "no questions asked" warranty. If your kids smash it, they'll replace it.
