In December I wrote a post featuring Kidloland surrounding the idea can using phones/tablets actually be educational for children, we’ve always been pretty flexible when it comes to letting Scarlett use technology, obviously she has a time limit on it but we allow her to use it. She usually uses my tablet or phone to watch kids Youtube which isn’t so great when you receive texts or calls because she slides them up going un noticed for a while. We decided to invest in a tablet for herself, I’ve heard about the Amazon Fire Kids Edition £100 before and it sounded pretty suited for her.
- Easy-to-use parental controls: set screen time limits and educational goals, encouraging learning before play
- Comes with 5000+ age-appropriate games, educational apps, videos and books with 1 year of Fire for Kids Unlimited included
- Worry-free YouTube videos and websites: controlled access to thousands of age-appropriate websites and selected YouTube videos through the Fire for Kids web-browser
- 2-year worry-free guarantee: If they break it, return it and we’ll replace it for free. No questions asked
- 7″ display, quad-core processor, kid-proof case, front and rear cameras, and microSD slot for additional storage up to 200GB
What mainly appealed to us is the 2-year worry-free guarantee, obviously when it comes to kids it’s likely at some point that it might get broken and being one of her favourite things to have at the moment I don’t want her to going without it and to be worrying about the cost to get the screen replaced or if the tablet gets damaged.
The tablet also has parental controls so that you are able to set screen time limits for example you can set it to the tablet can only be used between 6pm-7pm, Scarlett has adapted to that pretty well once her screen time is over it goes away. It also allows you to set educational goals so for example, Scarlett might have to do a piece of homework before having screen time.
The Amazon Fire Kids Edition comes with 5000+ games, educational apps, videos and books so there is plenty of entertainment for your little ones without them having to download endless apps, which is a pet hate of mine when she has my phone, if she doesn’t try to download them there is a risk of them being deleted and typically I can never remember what I originally had, there is no issue with that it’s all already on the tablet, what’s even better they are age appropriate.
I’d definitely recommend this if parents are looking to buy their little ones a tablet.
