Amazon launches Kindle Kids Edition, an e-reader bundle for kids”

The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition retains its 10.1-inch 1080p Full HD display and dual Dolby Atmos speakers.

Like most of Amazon's tablets, the Fire HD 10 can also be purchased in a Kids Edition form factor. "The all-new Fire HD 10 has everything you need for entertainment with plenty of storage for your favourite videos, games, music, and books at home or on the go-and still under £150".

The Fire HD 10 also now comes with improved wifi, faster USB-C charging, reaching 80% in three hours, and an updated version of Fire OS with support for picture-in-picture for video playback while multitasking.

There's plenty of space to keep your content with 32GB of in-built storage which is expandable to 512 GB via an SD card.

Also shipping October 30 will be the newest version of the Fire HD 10 tablet.

The Kids tablet comes with a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited in the USA and Fire for Kids Unlimited in the United Kingdom (normally $2.99/£1.99 a month for Prime members) giving children access to thousands of books, Audible books, videos, educational apps and games that are all hand-selected and are age-appropriate (as before, the selection of content will adapt as your kids get older).

A free year of FreeTime Unlimited is included with the Kindle Kids Edition, in addition to other features that encourage kids to keep reading - such as achievement badges for completing books, easy access to definitions for hard words, a built-in dictionary, and a vocabulary builder.

The new £99 Kindle Kids Edition is a special variant of Amazon's latest, cheapest frontlit 6in Kindle with software created to encourage reading through gamification and word building. Amazon will replace the Kindle if your kid breaks it or it quits working for any reason.

Achievement Badges-kids can earn badges like Book Worm and Over Achiever when they make progress towards pre-defined goals.

The new Kindle Kids Edition can be pre-ordered here for $109.99 and starts shipping October 30. It comes with a kid-friendly that now has an adjustable stand cover (choose between blue, pink or purple), a year of Amazon Fire for Kids Unlimited, and a two-year guarantee.

Amazon is also expanding its FreeTime Unlimited service to the Fire TV stick, and eventually the Fire TV Edition smart TVs.
