Yep, they're all on sale.

Fantastic tablet.

Slightly biased in that regard, but truth is truth.

I had the HD 10 tablet 3 years ago with the FreeTime (now Kids+) subscription. Aside from the "you shouldn't give the child a tablet" argument, it was one of the best investment I could've made. The full version of all the apps alone is well worth it. Gone were the ads and add-ons my little guy always want to add and click on. We paid for a few but usually doesn't last long enough and he always wanted to download the next one. Just the Toca Life and Pinkfong would've costed me a fortune with the add-ons. I can't comment on the new version of the tablet, but just wanted to chime in a little.

Search out the comments from prior times the Fire Kid's tablets have been on sale. The software interface, restrictions, and limitations are terrible. I returned mine and wouldn't buy them at any price.

The deal breaker for me was that only the primary profile can access the SD card with 3rd party apps. E.g. you can't store Netflix, Plex, etc. movies on the SD card for your kids.

That's not True. My kid has tons of apps installed on the sd card. Some apps can't be stored on the sd card but those that can will.

The interface and restrictions are actually what makes the tablet great for younger kids.

I highly recommend.

Installing apps isn't the problem. Download content from Netflix and Disney+ is the problem - downloads can't be stored to the SD card so you're limited to local storage. It's my only frustration with an otherwise great kids' tablet.

I spent over 6 hours on the phone with 3 different Amazon techs - they were not able to get Netflix, Disney+, or Plex to save media to the SD card under a Kid's profile (it worked fine with the main parent profile). Since movies for my kids was the main purpose for the tablets, I sent them back to Amazon. They also didn't provide a way to get the YouTube app on the tablet - I couldn't get sideloading the app to work under the Kid's profile, either (again, worked fine for parent).

At the end of the day, it was not a good solution for my family, but it's a cheap price if it works for yours.

I got the 8inch fire tablet for the kids a while back and i find it terrible a year later. My significantly older Sony tablet destroys and it costed me about $100 more.

Since then I vouched I would never buy a fire tablet. Not sure if these are better now?

It's a mediocre tablet but it's great for kids
