Amazon Prime Day, one of the most anticipated shopping events of the year is back and bigger than ever in 2021 with two full days of epic savings on June 21 and 22. Amazon has said to expect two million deals across every category.
We can't wait to see if there will be deals on Amazon Fire Tablets, especially the brand new Fire Kids Pro Tablet for kids ages 6 to 12, just released in May. We love this new tablet and its new, slimmer, grown-up look and feel — something tweens love. The new “For You” tab offers a personalized screen for easy discovery of new and recommended content, while the “Home” tab provides easy access to the child’s screen time rules and key features such as voice and video calling, the web browser, and the digital store.
On Prime Day, look for the new Fire Kids Pro tablets — available in 7-inch, 8-inch HD or 10-inch HD screen and four great colors and prints. These new tablets, made for kids ages 6 to 12, are already really well priced even before Prime Day from $99.99 to $199.99. All versions include a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ with an expanded selection of content for older kids, a slim protective case, and a two-year worry-free guarantee. Yep, that's right. All Fire Kids Pro tablets include a two-year worry-free guarantee — at no extra cost. If it breaks, return it, and Amazon will replace it for free.
Five reasons you'll want the new Fire Kids Pro tablet
Here are five reasons why your 6-12 year-olds (and you!) won't be able to live without the new Fire Kids Pro tablet:
1. Expanded Amazon Kids+ content
The new Fire Kids Pro Tablet comes with a large selection of premium entertainment and educational content that older kids love. Kids can choose from thousands of apps, songs, Audible books, games including Teen Titans Go and Asphalt 8, books like Keeper of the Lost Cities and Chronicles of Narnia, PG and PG-13 videos, plus educational content from National Geographic, Rabbids Coding, LEGO, and more.
2. There's a digital store for even more content (and for you to approve downloads)
The new Fire Kids Pro Tablet lineup adds more digital content for older children like Disney+, Spotify, Minecraft, Zoom, and more. The digital store allows kids to request apps they want, and then parents can approve any downloads and purchases ... which means no unexpected charges on the credit card!
3. New Amazon Kids web browser with easy parent controls
The web browser includes a setting that gives kids open, but filtered access to the web for school projects and online curriculum, while built-in controls on the Parent Dashboard allows parents to remotely block specific websites. The Parent Dashboard also allows you to easily view your kids' online activities and set time limits on screen time — right from your own phone or laptop and without ever touching their tablets! As moms, I know we all like easy ... especially when it comes to technology.
4. Voice and video calling to stay in touch
Keeping kids in touch with friends and family has been a priority over the past year, and the new Fire Kids Pro Tablet makes it easy by allowing kids to make and receive voice and video calls over Wi-Fi with parent-approved contacts who have a Fire Kids or Fire Kids Pro tablet, Alexa-enabled device, or Alexa app. Kids can also make announcements like “I’m done with my homework” from the tablet to Alexa-enabled devices at home.
5. Music to their ears
Finding an album you love as a tween is one of those life-defining moments you never forget. The new Fire Kids Pro Tablet can guide them on that search with a new music row that includes stations from iHeartRadio Family. Kids can choose from an array of curated playlists like Acoustic for Kids and Homework Inspiration, as well as live radio stations.
