Kindle Kids

Amazon
$50 $110 at Amazon

This e-reader is designed just for kids — and it has parental controls!

Kindle Kids has all the great features you love in the adult version of Kindle, but with younger ones in mind. It has a black and white glare-free display and a battery life that can last for weeks (not a typo). Unlike tablets, this is focused solely on reading, so you don't have to worry about your child getting distracted by apps and games while they're "reading."

You'll get a year of Amazon Kids+ with the Kindle Kids, allowing your child to check out more than a thousand books for just $4.99 a month. The first year of access is free!

For just $50 (down from $110), you'll get the Kindle, a year of Amazon Kids+, a kid-friendly cover, and a two-year warranty.

Kindle Kids has an army of fans. "As a parent, I love this, because I don't have to worry that my kids are reading something I don't want them reading," said one five-star reviewer. "I can see what they're doing and for how long. And if I ever feel bored myself (if only), I can use my PIN and exit the kid mode. At this point, it becomes a 'regular' Kindle and I can read what I want to read."

Other parents say the Kindle Kids has encouraged their children to read more. "My daughter, 9, loves it," said a happy customer. "She keeps track of her reading for school and since we got it five days ago, she's read over 11 hours which is up from her usual four to five."

Again, this sale is only happening for a limited time. Grab a Kindle Kids at a hefty discount while you still can!
