Amazon has marked down their Kindle Fire 7″ Tablet to just $39.99 + FREE shipping, which is only $5 off the best price it has ever been! The tablet is WiFi-enabled with 8GB of internal storage, with up to 7 hours of reading, surfing the web, watching videos or listening to music.
My kids (ages 5 and 7) have been begging for an iPad and while we think they are far too young, we also know that this technology business is going to catch up with us and we will have to give in at some point. The Kindle Fire tablet is outrageously cheaper than an iPad AND they have tons of access to great books for reading. We went with one of these tablets for each kid and just bought a highly-rated case to go with it, instead of paying over $80 for the kids Kindle version.
Our kids have LOVED these so far. They earn time during the week and then get to “cash in” on the weekends and they have really enjoyed playing Minecraft and tons of other free game apps. Our 7 year old listens to Pandora on his Kindle and they both love to take photos and videos. It’s fairly straight forward to set parental controls and the Kindles are automatically linked to your Amazon account.
We bought this Elsse Premium Folio Case with Stand in Red for just $9.98 with FREE Prime shipping. There are several other colors available, but not all are eligible for Prime shipping.
