Amazon came out with the Fire Kids Pro family earlier this year to give parents with older children a safe tablet option. But since they have a couple of bells and whistles compared to standard Fire Kids tablets, these boards come at a price. However, Amazon has lowered the entire line so you can get one of the tablets for only $ 60. That’s the price of the Fire 7 Pro, while the Fire HD 8 Kids Pro dropped to $ 90, and the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro went on sale for $ 140.

Designed for children ages six and up, Fire Kids Pro tablets are similar to standard child-friendly boards in that they come with a two-year warranty, a protective case and a one-year Amazon Kids +. The latter also includes more content more appropriate for school-age children rather than young children, including things like content National Geographic, LEGO, Rabbids Coding and others. Kids Pro tablets also have a digital store where parents can approve all purchases and downloads of applications that their children request. This is in addition to the standard parental controls that come with all Fire Kids tablets, which makes these boards good options for parents who want to closely monitor what their children are doing while on their devices.
The biggest difference between the different Kids Pro tablets is their screen size — 7-, 8-, and 10-inch models are available, so it’s no surprise that the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro also has the most power. It runs on an octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM, and would last up to 12 hours on a single charge. While the Fire 7 Kids Pro is best for those on a budget, we recommend upgrading to the Fire HD 8 Kids Pro for, at the very least, its USB-C charging port (the 7-inch tablet relies on a dated microUSB port).
