A12 is not latest model, A14 is latest. Title is misleading. May be add year to the title.
It's the latest ipad mini model which uses a A12. Apple has not updated the ipad mini to a A14.

If you are ok to wait the regular ipad is usually around 250$ during thanksgiving. If they are ok with the size i would say regular would be fine for the kids

If you're not in a rush to get a tablet, keep waiting near black friday. Past years have discounted latest gen ipads to $229-$249 for 32gb and 128gb for $299/$329.

If your primary reason for the ipad is for media consumption. The ipad 10.2 is probably better, bigger screen which will make it more enjoyable to watch videos on.

So this would be the 5th ipad mini version, right? I believe that means the cases for the 4th gen fit these. Our 4th is still working fine other than "battery is low at 10%, let me shut down" issue that when I plug it in and turn it back on is up to 30%. Don't know why that keeps happening with "older" apple devices, but at least this one hasn't slowed down like our iphone 6 and nephew's mini 1 ipads.

We'll wait for the 6th gen at least. Haven't used the ipad mini as much since got iphone XR. Only really use the ipad mini for longer reading/studying sessions and instagram. 10" ipad seems to make more sense for those who don't really need the mini size.

Your battery might need replacing, it has a limited number of cycles (meaning recharges) before the battery will not be able to hold a charge.

One full cycle is complete discharge and charge to 100%, however from what I'm reading it's not so simple. If the ipad is constantly plugged in while being used or the battery is constantly drained to 0% or the the batter is constantly over heating, those can all impact the life of the battery.

I have an older ipad that I have to jump start by heating it with a hair dryer. Only then will it start to charge and turn on. I definitely need to get the battery replaced on that one.

Non-laminated / antireflective coating / P3 wide color / True Tone display and only 32GB of storage on the base model iPad 8. And front cameras are 7MP/1080p vs 1.2MP/720p on the 8. And Bluetooth 5.0 vs 4.2 on the 8.
