All of Amazon’s Fire Kids tablets are on sale just in time for back-to-school shopping

Deal pricing and availability subject to change after time of publication.

SAVE UP TO $70: Amazon’s Fire Kids and Kids Pro tablets are on sale for up to 40% off as of July 12.


Your back-to-school shopping list will run up a slightly higher tab than usual, says a new study from the consulting firm Deloitte — spending for the upcoming school year is projected to jump to an average of $612 per child, up 16% from $529 in 2020, largely because digital learning tools are replacing traditional school supplies both in and out of the classroom. (So long, No. 2 pencils — hellooo, touchscreen styluses.)

Now, for some good news: Amazon will cut you a deal on a kid-friendly tablet ahead of the start of the fall semester to take a little bit of the edge off your BTS bill. As of July 12, all of its Fire Kids and Kids Pro tablets are on sale for up to 40% off, with two models sitting at their all-time-low Prime Day prices at the time of writing.

Not sure which one’s right for your kiddo? Here’s a quick refresher:

Geared toward ages 3 to 7, the standard Fire Kids tablets each come with onboard parental controls, a two-year worry-free guarantee, and a durable Kid-Proof Case with a built-in stand. (Choose from three colors: Blue, Pink, or Purple.) Amazon’s also nice enough to throw in a year’s worth of Amazon Kids+ (normally $2.99 a month for Prime members), an all-in-one subscription that includes access to over 20,000 fun apps, games, books, videos, and audiobooks.

Take your pick from three different models:

A great budget-friendly pick, 2019’s entry-level Fire 7 Kids is a 7-inch tablet with a 1024 x 600 display, a 7-hour battery life, a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor, and 1GB of RAM with 16GB of storage space. (That’s expandable by up to 512GB if you add a microSD card, sold separately.)

Typically $99.99, you can order one today for just $59.99 — that’s a 40% savings and an exact match of its all-time-low Prime Day price.

The slightly fancier Fire HD 8 Kids from 2020 features an 8-inch HD (1280 x 800) display, a faster quad-core 2.0 GHz processor, a 12-hour battery life, and 2GB of RAM with 32GB of built-in storage (expandable by up to 1TB).

Amazon has it on sale for only $89.99, which is 36% off its usual retail price of $139.99.

A 1080p full HD (1920 x 1200) screen, a zippy octa-core 2.0 GHz processor, a 12-hour battery life, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory (expandable by up to 1TB) make the entertainment-friendly Fire HD 10 Kids the premium pick of this bunch.

It normally retails for $199.99, but if you’re quick, you can score it on sale for just $129.99 — a 35% savings.

FIRE KIDS PRO FAMILY

Introduced this past April, the “Pro” versions of Amazon’s Fire Kids tablets give kids ages 6 to 12 a little more freedom to learn and explore on their own — all under the watchful eye of Mom or Dad, of course. Each one comes equipped with a filtered web browser, a digital store where they can request apps, and support for voice/video calls in addition to that two-year worry-free guarantee and yearlong Amazon Kids+ membership. Plus, their sleeker, slimmed-down cases come in four different styles: Black, Sky Blue, Intergalactic, or Doodle.

These bad boys feature the exact same hardware specs and pricing as their non-Pro counterparts — only the content and case patterns are different. Keep scrolling for a quick link to each one:

A $99.99 value, Amazon has the Fire 7 Kids Pro on sale for its all-time-low Prime Day price of just $59.99 — a 40% savings.
