Christmas is my favorite time of year and it’s even more fun now that I’m a mom. My family was big on Christmas traditions and I love to share them with my boys, plus make some new ones of our own! Christmas came early for Indigo this year with this Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. As you can see, he was pretty excited! I had been wary about letting Indigo have a tablet for two reasons. 1) I was worried that he would be watching questionable/inappropriate content and 2) I was sure he would immediately crack the screen. The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet solves both of these problems and it provides us with an entertaining opportunity to create holiday memories!

The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet provides educational content that’s also fun and entertaining. Each tablet comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. FreeTime Unlimited provides access to over 20,000 books, videos, Audible books, educational apps and games that are hand-curated by the Amazon FreeTime team. All content is age appropriate.

The FreeTime Unlimited content can be downloaded so it’s available offline. This feature comes in so many for road trips, airplane rides or anywhere an internet connection isn’t available. Plus, it’s so easy to download, even kids can do it. Simply long press the title while connected to Wi-Fi. FreeTime will automatically start Offline Mode when the tablet is disconnected from Wi-Fi or put into Airplane Mode, at which point the downloaded content will be visible in FreeTime.

In the evenings after bathtime, we’ve been getting in bed to read a Christmas story. It’s something I did as a child and it always made me so eager for Santa to come! Amazon FreeTime Unlimited gives us the opportunity to read a different holiday story every night.

Indigo also loves the apps and games. There’s Christmas-themed games like the Santa Claus Game (below) as well as his favorites Dr. Panda and My Town.

The Parental Controls setting in FreeTime gives you peace of mind by allowing you to set time limits, adjust age filters, enable/disable web browser access, and choose whether to allow in-app purchasing. Parents can also use Parent Dashboard to review the digital content their kids are using in FreeTime, determine how to manage time limits and educational goals, and remotely adjust their child’s FreeTime settings.

Worry about your child breaking the tablet? Don’t be! The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition comes with a kid-proof case and a two-year worry-free guarantee—if they break it, simply return it and Amazon will send a replacement for free, no questions asked. I wish every electronic device was this durable! Indigo has dropped the tablet multiple times and it remains crack-free!
