Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition hands-on

Amazon has discovered a niche market, churning out versions of its popular Fire tablets with a few nifty additions aimed at kids, so it’s hardly a surprise that it’s just announced another.

The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition is virtually identical to the tablet Amazon released last year. The moniker comes from a few additions: a thick, rubbery case that adds extra protection to an already durable device, the excellent Fire for Kids Unlimited service pre-installed, and a 2-year guarantee.

The tablet itself sits at the high-end of Amazon’s Fire line, with a 1080p screen and 32GB of internal storage. In my review of the tablet, I said: “If you want a cheap, durable device to play and consume Amazon’s vast array of Prime content then the Amazon Fire HD 10 will fit your needs. It isn’t revolutionary or overly interesting, but it will get the job done.”
