If you're looking for an entertainment and educational tablet for your child, the Amazon Fire HD 8 for Kids is the best choice. The cost isn't outrageous, and you save even more with FreeTime Unlimited. The two-year Worry-Free warranty has the potential to save you a lot of money in repair or replacement costs. And, because the protective case is removable, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition doesn't have to look like, or function only as, a kids' device.
