If your kid keeps clamoring for their own iPad (or you just need a little break during the day to get some work done), the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is an excellent compromise. They’ll get access to games and videos, and you’ll get a great deal. Especially if you buy today, when the Fire HD 8 is 36 percent off — the lowest price we’ve seen. It comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which offers thousands of kid-friendly books, educational apps, movies, tv shows, and games. You can use the parental controls to decide which apps are available when and for how long. And you even get a two-year warranty, just in case they decide to take it with them in the pool.
