The Fire 7 Kids Edition is built from the ground-up for kids with three
ideas in mind:
Kids want a real tablet that grows with them—Fire 7 Kids
Edition offers a 7” IPS display, a faster processor, and 16 GB of
storage with up to 512 GB of expandable storage via a microSD card
slot. Fire tablets support up to two adult profiles (accessible with

Parents don’t want to worry about the content their kids are viewing—Fire

Despite best intentions, kids break things—Fire 7 Kids Edition
comes with a kid-proof case, and a two-year worry-free guarantee—if
they break it, return it and we’ll replace it.
“Fire Kids Edition tablets are the #1 best-selling kids’ tablets in the
U.S. and today, the Fire 7 Kids Edition is getting even better with a
faster processor and a new kid-proof case with a stand,” said Kurt
Beidler, Director of Kids and Family, Amazon. “Now, kids can easily prop
up their tablet to watch their favorite videos, dance along to the
Pinkfong! Baby Shark video, play an educational app like Solar System
Explorer, or choose from over 1,000 kid-friendly Audible books to listen
to. We think parents and kids alike are going to love it.”

Tools Parents Can Trust
Over 10 million kids (and their parents) have enjoyed the award-winning
Amazon FreeTime service, which provides the perfect balance between
giving kids the content they love, while providing parents peace of mind
knowing that what their kids are viewing on their device is
age-appropriate. FreeTime offers parental controls that encourage
learning before play, and gives parents the ability to manage their
child’s FreeTime settings, including:
Age filters—parents can adjust settings to tailor the FreeTime
experience for each child and ensure the content their kids are
viewing is age-appropriate.
Learn First—parents can set daily goals for educational
content, and block access to entertainment content until after
educational goals are met each day.
Screen time by category—parents can restrict certain
categories, such as apps and games, while leaving unlimited time for
Total screen time—parents can choose a set amount of total
screen time per day, after which FreeTime will shut down.
Bedtime—parents can control when FreeTime shuts down for the
day and turns back on the next morning.
Weekday and weekend settings—parents can set time limits by
weekdays and weekends.
Add or remove content—parents can add titles from their own
content library into FreeTime, or choose to remove unwanted FreeTime
Enable the web browser—parents can choose to enable or disable
the kid-friendly web browser within FreeTime.
Additionally, parents can access Parent Dashboard (parents.amazon.com)
to view daily activity reports of the digital content their kids are
using in FreeTime and determine how to manage time limits and
educational goals. Remote parental controls in Parent Dashboard make it
easy for parents to pause their child’s devices for a set amount of
time, as well as adjust their child’s FreeTime settings remotely via any
web browser on a mobile device or computer. Parents can also access
Discussion Cards in Parent Dashboard to view summaries and sample
questions to help them initiate conversations with their kids about the
content they’re viewing in FreeTime.
