Back-to-School Help with a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet, Under $100

It’s the time of year kids dread, going back to school, but you could make it all go much more smoothly for them with their own tablet that can help them with their schoolwork while also allowing them to watch movies and play games. The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet is on sale now for just $99.99.

The Fire HD 8 is far from a kids toy and is a full-featured tablet. It features a beautiful HD display, 32 GB of internal storage, and up to twelve hours of mixed-use battery life to last your child throughout the day. You can also add a microSD card to expand the storage up to 256 GB.

With the price of the tablet, you’ll get one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. This allows kids to access 15,000 popular apps and games, videos, books and education content that comes from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more. After the one year, you’ll pay just $2.99 per month plus tax, but you can cancel the subscription at any time.


While the Fire comes with a kid-proof case in your child’s choice of colors, there’s still a chance for accidents, yet you’re protected either way. The tablet has a two-year worry-free guarantee. If it breaks, just return it, and it will be replaced for free, with no questions asked.

Kids can also access other content such as Netflix, YouTube, and Minecraft, if you allow them to. You’ll be able to manage what your child is allowed to view on the tablet with flexible parental controls that allow you to manage usage limits, access to content, and educational goals.

Get the tablet in a pink or yellow kid-proof case at $30 off for $99.99 or in blue at full price.
