Fire Kids Tablet (Amazon)

Deal2go 5,119 277 November 23, 2015 at 04:25 PM
Amazon has the Fire Kids Edition (2015) for $84.99.

I have been thinking to buy this but not sure

Can you surf websites to watch youtube videos or download files or videos or music on this?

Or the kids watch whatever amazon has pre selected and that's it?

Can't download any apps?

Is it light for child's hand? need one for my 2 year.
thanks

I bought and liked the new fire. Upside is that it is perfect for prime member cause it really does store prime videos and apps on sd card. as far as modes. there is basically a kids mode that only allows the apps you choose and extensive parental controls. I bought for an eight year old and turned those off. I would buy for a smaller child and use parent controls. very nice tablet. I did return it only because the is now way to connect it to a tv. (Amazon uses the usb to go port for the purpose of tv connection and the new fire tablets do not come with this). Bought an insignia from Best Buy for this purpose but no kid controls.

Consider going on youtube and watching some review videos of it. I can't answer any of the specific questions but I would guess the answer on most of this is it depends on how you configure it.

Do know that on the Fire Tablets out of the box you have to get your apps from amazon, you can't use the google play store.
