If you’re looking for a tablet for the kid in your life, you’ll inevitably find an Amazon option at the top of many lists. This is because Amazon has worked hard to offer quality hardware and software at an affordable price. With up to six different baby tablet options, it can be difficult to decide which is the best Amazon Fire baby tablet to buy for your child.

The Amazon Fire Kids tablet takes the company’s already great hardware at its core, like the Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus, and makes it perfect for kids and parents by adding software designed specifically for kids. This software feature is known as Amazon Kids and Kids+, which makes these tablets not only easier to navigate for kids but also fills them with age-appropriate content that puts you in control of what your child sees. This is a pretty basic explanation of what you get when you buy an Amazon Fire Kids tablet, so let’s get into the details in the different layers of what makes these tablets a great purchase for kids and parents alike.

The great Amazon Fire Kids tablets cover a range of prices in an effort to be affordable. Starting with the new 2022 Fire 7 Kids, you can choose the 16GB option for $109.99 or go up to 32GB for $129.99. As of now, last year’s Fir 7 Kids Pro hasn’t got the update yet, so you can get it for $49.99. If you want to go for a bigger, stronger tablet, the Fire HD 8 Kids and Fire HD 8 Kids Pro are $139.99. Moving on to Amazon’s biggest offering, the Fire HD 10 Kids or Fire HD 10 Kids Pro costs $199.99.

Amazon offers three different tablet sizes of kids tablets to cover a wide range in the kids Android tablets category. You may remember I said earlier that there are six options for Amazon Fire Kids tablets, because each size of the tablet comes in two different configurations. I know it sounds a little confusing, but let’s break it down a bit so we can work it out.
