Why we like it

Designed for kids ages three to seven, the Amazon Fire 7 Kids comes in three fun colorways for kids to enjoy. With larger buttons, younger kids should have an easier time navigating the tablet while watching their favorite shows, reading books, or playing games. The included cover is also meant to be kid-friendly with a durable design that’ll help protect the tablet from inevitable drops.

The tablet also comes with Amazon’s two-year guarantee that if the tablet breaks within the first two years, the retailer will replace it for free.

With 16GB of storage, the Amazon Fire 7 Kids gets about 10 hours of battery life, which could be a lifesaver this summer during road trips or family vacations.
