With the holidays only a few days away, it's time to stop wondering what to buy and start making some purchases! If you've been on the hunt for affordable and durable tablets for kids, look no further than the Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablets (opens in new tab). Right now you can save up to 30% on the Fire 7 (opens in new tab) and Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablets (opens in new tab) for a limited time with prices starting at just $69.99.

There's a lot more than meets the eye with these tablets. You even get an entire year of the Amazon Kids+ (opens in new tab) streaming service with the purchase which your children will be obsessed with. We'll get into all the reasons why you should buy below.

The Kids Editions of Amazon's Fire Tablets are amazing. Not only do you get a kid-proof case and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement guarantee, but Amazon also throws in an entire year of the Kids+ streaming service for free with the purchase.

Amazon's Kids Edition tablets are the same as the Fire tablets that you'd buy at Amazon for an adult, though they're loaded with parental controls to make surfing the web safer for your child. Plus, Amazon includes a kid-proof case with the purchase to keep the tablet safe as well. Of course, kids have a way of figuring out how to break just about anything which is why Amazon also includes a 2-year replacement guarantee with the purchase; no matter what happens to the tablet, you can replace it within two years for a brand new model with no questions asked.

Those bonuses alone would make the Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablets worth the purchase, but to really make it an unbeatable value Amazon also includes a year of the Amazon Kids+ (opens in new tab) streaming service. That service alone normally costs $69 yearly for Prime members or $2.99 per month and would be worth subscribing to whether you purchase a tablet today or not. Kids+ not only includes age-appropriate shows and movies that your child will be able to stream to their tablet or any other device with the Kids+ app, but also educational games and apps, eBooks and audiobooks, and more. It's not just stellar for entertainment but for learning as well.

There are two options on sale today: the Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet (opens in new tab) with a 7-inch display for $69.99 or the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet (opens in new tab) with an 8-inch HD display for $99.99. The 10-inch Kids Edition tablet (opens in new tab) isn't on sale at this time and is currently priced at $199.99, though it does come with all of the bonuses mentioned above.
