Fire HD 6 Kids Edition
The Fire HD Kids Edition features a kid-friendly navigation and personalized child profiles. Parents can now switch from Amazon FreeTime to their profile using a password to access the full-featured tablet experience whenever they need it.
If an app is not available using your kid’s profile, you can change into your profile and add the app from the Amazon Appstore to use it in addition to your kid’s libraries. This was definitely designed with kids in mind.
Kid and Parent Profiles
Parents are now able to create up to 4 separate child profiles and choose titles from their own compilation of content they want to provide access to each of their kids. Children’s profiles will not access the device’s built-in Fire HD web browser, email, in-app purchases, or social media networks as only parents can adjust settings.
Unlimited Amazon Freetime
The Fire HD Kids Edition comes with 1-year unlimited Amazon FreeTime. This is a hand-curated subscription of over 10,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games. However, parents have the right to set time limits for usage to give more time for study periods.

Customer Reviews and Score
One of the most frustrating features of this tablet is its limited storage space. With only 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, you’re likely to fill up the Kindle quickly. While cloud storage options help with this problem, there are no expanded storage options, and you cannot supplement storage with an SD card.
However, there are parents who rated it as 3 out of 5 stars due to ease of usage.
Fire HD Kids Edition is good or kids 3 years old and up, needs no software to install, no setup, and requires no computer when downloading content. Its kid-proof case is your worry-free protection against repeated drops or damage. It matches the kids’ delight as well as your satisfaction. I highly suggest this to all parents.
