So today, Amazon simultaneously announced the new Fire HD 10 Kids and the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro.
The underlying tablet is the same tablet, but they are set up differently with different content for the respective age group, and feature parental controls.
The Fire HD 10 Kids is intended for 3- to 7-year-olds, while the Fire HD Kids Pro is intended for 6- to 12-year-olds, with the content and interface adjust accordingly.
But the hardware and tablet specs are the same as on the normal adult version of the new Fire HD 10, which means support for a digitizer pen too for the first time on the Fire HD 10. And a lower weight of the tablet than previously too.
The also feature a 3.5mm audio jack so that kids can listen to the audio from the tablet using headphones, if you don’t want to be disturbed by cartoon toons from the backseat while driving.
The Kids versions can be bought with choices of drop safe cases with anything from plain blue or pink colors, to Disney cases with Mickey Mouse.
And Amazon also continues with their policy of free replacements for 2 years for these Kids tablets, in case the first tablet should break in an accident.
But the tablets are well designed for children, including non-slip texture on the cases, protective bumper cases, tablet stands, and cases that act like large bezels, which means that the tablets are easy to hold and grab for the small hands of a child.
