The New Kindle Fire is Cool For Kids

By on November 25, 2011

The Kindle Fire is a great, new tech product that is uniquely suitable for children. It is a color tablet, measuring only 7 inches–the perfect size for little hands. The tablet has access to eBooks, videos, games and apps; all displayed on a wonderfully rich, colorful screen. These colorful options make it well worth the $199 price tag; an affordable and relatively economical tech choice for children.

The Kindle Fire is considerably smaller than an iPad and this can be a great advantage for younger kids. The device weighs less while being less delicate, so its easy to hold onto while simultaneously engaging the touchscreen.

Amazon, perhaps, even had children in mind when designing the interface as they focused a great amount of attention on making the Kindle Fire extremely easy to use. The touchscreen itself is incredibly accessible and intuitive. And the screen is even scratch resistant!

Kids can discover hours of entertainment with a Kindle Fire. There is lots of content for the device that is kid friendly and focused. Of course eBooks and music but also instant video provides an easy way to watch TV shows and movies and there are tons of apps and games available for download through Amazon’s AppStore.

When the first Kindle was introduced it was clear that books on eReaders would not be particularly engaging for young children because the screen was black and white. Storybooks just aren’t as enthralling with out vivid colors for the illustrations. However, with the advent of a beautiful color touch display, Kindle Fire
is a great alternative to physical storybooks. And Amazon boasts over 1,000 children’s titles which have been specially formatted for the Kindle Fire.

Amazon also has an enormous library of videos. All of which are accessible through the Kindle Fire. TV shows and movies geared towards every childhood age from baby to teen can be found on Amazon.

Games and apps available through the app store aren’t just entertaining, many are educational. Simply clicking around with your child will reveal many that speak to their individual interests and needs.

In terms of older children, the Kindle Fire has web browsing capabilities and is also a great platform for downloadable comic books and graphic novels.

These many entertainment options, along with the compact size of the device, makes the Kindle Fire a wonderful travel companion for kids. The Kindle Fire could be the answer to backseat arguments, boredom at the airport gate, or even quieting the barrage of queries that grow ever more annoying to parents when traveling (“Are we there yet?”).

    I’ve received my Kindle Fire now and I’m very impressed. I wasn’t too sure what to expect as the reviews have been so-so but at $200, I think it’s great value so far. The screen is responsive, it seems to be fairly fast to move between screens and it gives me access to all of the Amazon videos, eBooks, magazine, app store etc. It’s extremely easy to use too. There’s still improvements that can be made and if you want a tablet that’s all encompassing then it’s best to go for one of the larger Android tablets or an iPad. The Kindle Fire also seems fairly robust so at this price, would make a great tablet for kids. All-in-all I’m very happy. Thanks for your post.

    I have a nephew who is autistic and he find great comfort in the iPad, that was until he broke it. The Kindle Fire seems to be very close in how it works. Perhaps that will be a better choice for him.

    I am currently visiting the States and was planning to buy this for my friend and give it as Xmas gift. This is a lot more cheaper than any version of iPad.

    I have never tried Kindle before and I do not know what are some of it’s features. Maybe I should be able to try it to know if it is really good for the kids. Thanks for sharing it.
