Besides the faster processors and more storage, the new Amazon Fire 7 tablets come in additional colors like Sage, Plum, and Twilight Blue. It's also worth mentioning that these tablet will hit the shelves on June 7, but if you pre-order one, you'll receive a $10 credit for Amazon's app store.

The new Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet comes with a 7-inch display, a faster processor, and 16GB of expandable internal memory. Also, the slate includes FreeTime parental controls that offer parents the ability to set educational goals and screen time limits categorized by type.

Truth be told, this one is more expensive than the all-new Fire 7 tablet, as Amazon offers its new kids-oriented slate for $100. On the bright side, if you pre-order the tablet until June 6, you'll receive a free pair of headphones featuring Forky or Bo Peep from Toy Story 4 ($20 value).
