    Our sec­ond Fire tablet — this one is replac­ing an iPad.We already own a Fire 7 (5th gen) and an iPad mini (2nd gen). Sur­pris­ing­ly enough, this Fire HD 8 was bought to replace the iPad. My kids pre­fer the Fire, and they fight over who gets to play it. The rea­son is sim­ple: the iPad requires games to be bought indi­vid­u­al­ly from the App Store, and since pop­u­lar games like the Toca Life series are £4 each, I have to lim­it the num­ber of games they’re allowed.In con­trast, the Fire for Kids app allows them to browse and down­load any­thing they want, from a curat­ed, age-appro­pri­ate selec­tion, of games, video, books and Audi­ble audio­books. They like the fact that they can down­load with­out ask­ing for per­mis­sion. Mean­while I can con­trol things like screen-time lim­its or age fil­ters from either the parental con­trol screen on the device, or the Ama­zon Par­ent Dash­board web­page. It’s a safe walled gar­den. That’s the main sell­ing point of this device. Every­thing else is nice-to-have, but ulti­mate­ly irrelevant.Still read­ing? Here’s the nice-to-haves that make this Fire HD 8 bet­ter than the oth­er Ama­zon tablets for me: First­ly, the faster proces­sor does make a dif­fer­ence. Start­up time and down­load time for apps is notice­ably faster.The 8‑inch (1280 x 800) screen is a huge improve­ment ver­sus the 7‑inch (1024 x 600) one. It might not seem like much on paper, but it’s real­ly notice­able when play­ing games and watch­ing video. Due to the slight­ly more rec­tan­gu­lar aspect ratio, the screen looks sig­nif­i­cant­ly big­ger than our iPad mini (despite the dif­fer­ence in diag­o­nal mea­sure­ment being only 0.1 in). Pre­sum­ably the 10-inch mod­el would be bet­ter still, but I didn’t want any­thing that bulky.The USB‑C port is anoth­er nice-to-have. Our old­er Fire tablet uses Micro USB, and I still, after all these years, have to check the ori­en­ta­tion to make sure I’m plug­ging it in the right way. Sure, it’s not a big deal, but it’s nice to get rid of this lit­tle annoyance.The stand looks like a gim­mick, but it’s already proven to be very handy. The angle is steep­er than I expect­ed (almost ver­ti­cal, and can’t be adjust­ed), but it’s just right for watch­ing video with­out hav­ing to prop it against some­thing. As for its dura­bil­i­ty, all I can say is that I bought the Fire 7 with Kid-proof case when it first came out… (checks notes) 5 years ago. It gets dropped pret­ty much every day, and it still sur­vives. That’s pret­ty durable.Yes, it’s not per­fect. I’ve tried to use it as a ‘grown-up’ tablet, and I find the Fire OS rather too ‘locked-down’. The Ama­zon App store has a rea­son­able selec­tion (includ­ing, sur­pris­ing­ly, apps like Skype and Zoom), but the lack of Google Play apps like Gmail and Google docs quick­ly becomes frus­trat­ing. But my kids have nev­er need­ed any of that, and real­is­ti­cal­ly, these devices weren’t made for ‘real work’.Another thing to watch out for is that it needs a bit of set­up out of the box. You need to con­nect to WiFi, enter your Ama­zon pass­word, skip through a 2‑minute intro video and set up a child account before it’s ready to use. Mine also required a soft­ware update right out of the box. All told, it only took about 10 min­utes to set up, but it’s prob­a­bly best to do this before hand­ing it over to an excit­ed child.The only real down­side is that this tablet is a bit more expen­sive than pre­vi­ous ver­sions. That said, con­sid­er that the stand­alone Fire HD 8 with­out “Spe­cial Offers” (i.e. lockscreen ads) costs £99.99. You get 1 year of “Fire for Kids Unlim­it­ed” sub­scrip­tion with the device, which usu­al­ly costs £1.99/mo for Prime sub­scribers (£3.99/mo non-sub­scribers). This means that at cur­rent prices, I’m pay­ing £16 for the kid-proof case and 2‑year war­ran­ty, which is a pret­ty good deal as far as I’m concerned.

    Dis­ap­point­ingWe were huge­ly pleased when our order was upgrad­ed for free to the new mod­el. It worked fine for a cou­ple of days then prob­lems start­ed. I could not share con­tent with my child pro­file, con­tent that was shared pre­vi­ous­ly some­how dis­ap­peared. I spent near­ly two hours with five dif­fer­ent cus­tomer ser­vice agents with no res­o­lu­tion to my prob­lem. I was told that I can have it replaced with a refur­bished mod­el — why choose that after three days of using a brand new mod­el?! Apps down­loaded and adver­tised as free actu­al­ly need­ed log in details / an account cre­at­ed. Very dis­ap­point­ed that so ear­ly on we encoun­tered tech­ni­cal issues with zero res­o­lu­tion from cus­tomer service!Update on this review:Customer ser­vice got back in touch via an email address that does not receive replies. How­ev­er, I worked out the issue myself. Any con­tent you down­load (it has to be on the par­ent pro­file) and then share with your child it’s classed auto­mat­i­cal­ly as enter­tain­ment, so BBC iPlay­er kids the same cat­e­go­ry as Math­let­ics app or Alph­ablocks. When you set learn­ing tar­gets for your child the tablet auto­mat­i­cal­ly blocks (or so it claims as all the Bar­bie apps still show) all the enter­tain­ment con­tent. I get it, the child can­not watch TV before read­ing for X min­utes or doing some maths. But what if the con­tent you down­load and then share it’s pre­cise­ly to increase the edu­ca­tion­al port­fo­lio? Well…you have to dis­able Learn First, as advised, if you want your child to access stuff you shared. And by the way, movies and clips of Cbee­bies shows (episodes of Bing) are still not show­ing in the child’s pro­file despite being shared. Only avail­able in the par­ent profile.

    Not too sure…We were look­ing for a tablet for our lit­tle one, was gonna go for the 2018 edi­tion but when we found out a 2020 edi­tion was on the way, pre-ordered with­out thinking…It came on time like it said but we noticed a lit­tle prob­lem, we bought this know­ing we want­ed to add Dis­ney+ for our lit­tle ones pro­file but it just did­n’t work for some reason…We spoke to those who worked for Ama­zon but no one knew what was the prob­lem, first time we con­tact­ed them, they said they would get back to us with­in 48 hours but that came and went with­out any reply…We tried again and the same sto­ry, luck­i­ly this got fixed after near­ly two weeks after purchase.I swear from those two ses­sions, we spoke to at least a dozen of Ama­zon Assistants…All in all, the tablet is fine, just about does the job for our lit­tle one…One more thing, it takes an age to charge (8~10hrs from 0%), this is from our 45W charg­er too, our ol‘ school Nokia 3310 charges faster than this..

    Great buy — real­ly hap­py!I got this as a gift for my chil­dren dur­ing lockdown.I love the fact they have their own pro­files, timers set by par­ents and extra apps can be added (we have added sky kids and net­flix as these wer­ent on already).Found it to be a bit of a faff with get­ting the extra apps, down­load­ing the game on par­ents pro­file then hav­ing to go into the kids pro­file to approve/add them to their pro­file, but after a bit of mess­ing around we fig­ured it out!I googled how to add play­store onto the tablet (only avail­able in adults pro­file) so we could add oth­er games we have on our phones etc. There are videos on youtube that talk you through it — easy enough to fol­low and worked first time.We love the case, the kick-stand on it is real­ly use­ful. The case is smooth and not too bulky. The charge on it lasts all day. The cam­era is good and the pic­tures are acces­si­ble through the par­ents pro­file which is a good fea­ture. The vol­ume is good for the size of the tablet. The ama­zon kids unlim­it­ed, includ­ed with the tablet is good — has loads on it!As a starter tablet, i think its cer­tain­ly mon­ey well spent. Not the cheap­est out there but i think the extras are worth it!We are all real­ly hap­py with the tablet — not just for the lit­tle ones!

    Audi­ble books for kids does­n’t workEvery­thing is as expect­ed, great for our son & would have giv­en more stars. How­ev­er the kids unlim­it­ed 1 year sub­scrip­tion in the­o­ry is fan­tas­tic but the audi­ble books don’t work. We’ve down­loaded sev­er­al & all that hap­pens is we get “an error occured” mes­sage & then noth­ing. We’ve updat­ed the firmware, delet­ed then down­loaded the books again but they still won’t play. Some help fix­ing this Ama­zon would be nice.

    Great kid friend­ly tabletsI pur­chased one for each of my daugh­ters so that they could watch their films and tv shows on Dis­ney+, use Math­let­ics and play suit­able games and read books in their qui­et time.I was very hap­py with these when they arrived, they had every­thing in the box­es to get going with very lit­tle effort.The build qual­i­ty is great and the remov­able pro­tec­tive case is great with its built in kick stand and sound direc­tion vents.Once the tablets are set­up and active, chil­dren can down­load what ever they like­from ama­zon at no extra cost, and set­up favourites with ease.As a par­ent, there as so many con­trols to restrict their usage that are easy to use.As an adult you can down­load apps from the full app store such as Dis­ney+ and then share the con­tent with the children.You can check what apps they use, how much they use them and if they use the web you can view their history.All in all, these are great kid friend tablets and have bril­liant parental controls.Pros- easy to set­up- lots of kid friend­ly con­tent- lots of parental con­trols- great exchange process if faulty or dam­agesCons- can some­times be a lit­tle slug­gish, but not enough to cause issues

    kids Fires are a god­sendI absolute­ly love the kids fire tablets. This is the 3rd one I’ve pur­chased. I pre­vi­ous­ly bought 2 of the 7 inch ver­sions at Christ­mas for my grand­kids and they were made up with them.They are a great addi­tion to any house­hold, the gc play games, learn new stuff and watch videos on them. They’re great to car­ry around with you espe­cial­ly if you need to keep the kids qui­et for a lit­tle while, at an appoint­ment etc and you don’t want to give them your expen­sive phone to play with and risk it get­ting bro­ken. Just give them this and some head­phones and they’ll be easy to occupy.These kids fire are so stur­dy, The chunky rub­ber cov­er pro­tects it real­ly well from drops of the edge of the sofa as we all know what kids can be like haha.I’ve just pur­chased the 8 inch one for when the gc come round so there’s always one here for them to play on. My youngest loves to teach me all the new songs and nurs­ery rhymes he learns watch­ing the videos. I can’t rate this high enough for the price and dura­bil­i­ty, you can’t beat it!

    Love­ly device ‚rec­om­mend !!A very good prod­uct for the kids espe­cial­ly, my daugh­ter is to have one of our phones to watch YouTube or play a lit­tle game so buy­ing this device was one of the best deci­sion ever.The tablet comes with a pink plas­tic case just per­fect fab­ric and qual­i­ty. The sound and the image are very clear ‚u can select the child‘s age and auto­mat­ic all the games and videos will be down­load on the main screen accord­ing to the age select­ed. Also the child can’t watch YouTube any­more (my one always ask­ing where us YouTube ):)) I cre­ate a pro­file for her and one for me where I can down­load what do wants to play or watch but YouTube definet­ly is restrict­ed and is a good thing ‚she spends less time on the tablet and more play­ing out in the gar­den or indoors.

    Sold my soul…and my sons!I bought this for my lit­tle boy for his 3rd birthday(I know it’s a con­tro­ver­sial), so we could lim­it his dai­ly time to 30mins and have parental con­trol over it. So I unboxed it to set it up for him, it already knew who I was… which was ok because I have a Prime account. To my hor­ror it already had my sons name set up on it. Not sure how they got that infor­ma­tion! I pro­ceed­ed to go and type in the Wi-fi pass­word. Again to my sur­prise it already knew this!!!I do have Alexa in the house­hold, which could be its gate­way to hav­ing that knowl­edge. It does feel like I have trad­ed my pri­va­cy for the “con­ve­nience” with­out know­ing about it!Perhaps I need to start read­ing the terms and conditions.My boy is use to watch­ing kid’s YouTube on my iPad. For some strange rea­son you can’t down­load that to his pro­file, you can only down­load to my pro­file. So if he wants to watch it I have to unlock my pro­file which doesn’t have the lock­down timer or the restrict­ed safe­guards. So negates the whole rea­son for buy­ing it.The pro­tec­tive cov­er is good and the price is reasonable.

    Dis­ap­point­ing soft­ware issues, com­pared to past ones …This is our sec­ond Kin­dle for Kids. Our first was and is fan­tas­tic but this new one has been an utter pain. It has had soft­ware prob­lems since the sec­ond week! We nev­er had these issues with our first one. Super dis­ap­point­ed. We are send­ing it back as defec­tive and want a new one.
