Tablets for kids are no longer a waste of time. They can do research, homework, get creative, use educational apps, play games and, well anything you can do on a normal tablet. At the same time, tablets geared for younger children need parental controls and security functions, so you can keep an eye on what content your children are consuming.
Amazon's Fire Kids range of tablets fills this niche perfectly, with sturdy, durable casings, all the functionality of its Fire range for adults and tight parental controls including time limits and a parental dashboard linked to your smartphone. And, in one of this year's best Black Friday deals for grown-ups grappling with their kids' computing, you can snag an Amazon Fire Kids tablet on the cheap, with Fire HD 10, Fire HD 8 and Fire 7 Kids Edition models available.
Although they look bright and attractive, these aren't toys – they're fully functional Fire tablets just like the grown-up versions. Check out the deals on all three version of the tablets below, and watch the kids smile in delight as they discover all the edu-tainment on offer on your Fire Kids tablet of choice.
