With my two young children, it’s never without something I do. But, of course, they seem to find plenty of moments to say they’re bored – even with 5 acres of country property to explore. I’m constantly looking for ways to keep them learning, having fun, and being safe with the devices I’m testing. So, to help parents in a similar situation, I’ve found some of the best Prime Day deals on kids tech that you can still take advantage of.
While there are plenty of great smartphones for kids, with some of the best from smaller brands you’ve never heard of, not all kids are ready to get a phone. That’s where a smartwatch designed specifically for kids comes in – and Amazon has some really good deals on my and my kids’ favorite products.
TickTalk 4 is at the top of our list of the best smartwatches for kids for various reasons. Even after the review, my oldest son kept coming back to it. The dual camera setup makes it easy to use the video calling feature and take pictures of his adventures. He also loves the free iHeart Radio Family broadcast. But I like the companion app’s parental controls, security features, and messaging and voice calling options.
If your child isn’t ready for a smartwatch with many features, check out Spacetalk Adventurer for an option with a more mature look but not many features. Don’t get me wrong, while reviewing with my youngest son – we found a lot of things to like about this watch. It has an amazing build quality, a great looking screen, and a great companion app that ties it all together.
Of course, it’s hard to go wrong with any of Amazon’s excellent kids’ devices. Almost all of these devices are on sale right now, with an $80 off Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Pro And the Fire 7 Kids Pro is down to $50! Don’t forget the fun Amazon Echo Dot Kids for just $25 or the Echo Show 5 Kids for just $25 $40 (Opens in a new tab).
All of these products take advantage of the awesome Amazon Kids+ program to ensure your child has access to age-appropriate content, and has access to a full suite of parental controls.
Does your child already own a tablet, phone, or smartwatch, and you want to get some type of accessory to match them? I suggest taking a look at some of the best kids headphones. Aside from the fun colors and patterns and offering a size designed for smaller heads, they also have volume reduction technology to keep little ears safe.
My kids love the ONANOFF Buddyphones, and Amazon has the latest versions for sale. When my children and I review With these headphones, we were surprised not only by the features that each option offers but also by the comfort and sound quality. The Cosmos+ was so comfortable that I almost kept it to myself.
Still a tech product, but hardly, this Orsen LCD drawing tablet is for the mind 9.50 USD (Opens in a new tab). My kids love these tablets. It’s great because they can draw, write, play games like tic-tac-toe and more on it without any internet connection. When they’re ready to clear the screen, all they have to do is press the button, and it’ll be gone. Pro tip for parents, there is a lock switch on the back to disable the button to save tears after an accidental press in the middle of their masterpiece.
While kids can be very easy to get a gift for and very difficult at the same time, perhaps the hardest part is saving money on those gifts. My kids love using all of these, and I hope yours does, too. Don’t forget to check out our Prime Day live blog so you can save some money and get something for yourself too.
