Cheap tablet for parents when flying?

I'm looking for a cheap tablet for my parents when they fly. They barely know how to turn the computer on so I don't need anything special, just something they can watch a movie on, read, play basic games on when flying. I'm going to the US in a few weeks and wonder if I should get them a Fire tablet? But I thought I remember reading somewhere certain things don't work in Canada. Ideally want to spend around $100 or less if possible. 7" fire is $50USD.

Why don't you get them a 5.5"-6" smartphone instead, this way they can get a SIM for the country they are traveling to too along with tablet and GPS functions !
