recently refreshed Fire 7 Kids Edition is already listed as sold out, and although we obviously expect the thing to return before long, its $30 reduction from a typical $99.99 price is unlikely to stick.Unfortunately, the
As for the slightly older 8 and 10-inch Fire Kids Editions, you can currently get the two robust and colorful tablets at higher prices than back on Prime Day, but at least they're in stock.

Normally priced at $129.99, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition costs $99.99 at the time of this writing with absolutely no strings attached, as well as 32 gigs of internal storage space, a mediocre screen sporting 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, a reasonably powerful quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, microSD card slot, headphone jack, 2MP rear-facing shooter, 0.3MP front camera, and up to 12 hours of battery life between charges.
Meanwhile, the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition can be had for $159.99 instead of a $199.99 list price in a 32GB configuration of its own equipped with a higher-res 1920 x 1200 pixel display, 2 gigs of memory, and pretty much all the same other specs and features as its little brother. The two also share a built-in "kid-proof" case available in a number of eye-catching colors, as well as a 2-year "worry-free" guarantee covering everything from standard defects to drops and cracks. That's something you don't usually get on such a tight budget. Heck, it's something you rarely get on any type of budget.
