Kids will be kids, and there's just no stopping that sometimes. Instead of worrying about whether or not your child can keep their new tablet in good shape, you should consider getting them one of Amazon's discounted Fire HD 8 Kids Edition (opens in new tab). Right now, the 32GB variant is on sale for just $79.99, which is a savings of $50 compared to its regular price. If you happen to have two kids, or need an extra as a gift, Amazon is offering an additional $20 discount when you buy two at the same time.

The 8-inch tablet comes housed in a case that protects it from whatever your little one throws at it. Amazon also includes a two-year no-questions-asked warranty as well as a year of FreeTime Unlimited worth $99.

So, what makes this tablet worth buying for your kids? Well, to start, Amazon offers a two-year worry-free guarantee on the tablet, so if your child is able to break it, Amazon will replace it. The tablet comes inside of a kid-proof case that comes in your choice of yellow, blue, and pink. This helps keep it protected against falls, spills, drops, and more.

The tablet is great for watching videos, playing games, and more. Amazon's FreeTime Unlimited helps you keep tabs on what the kids are doing on the tablet, and also gives access to over 20,000 popular apps and games, videos, books, Audible books, and educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more.

It also comes in a 7-inch version (opens in new tab) as well as a 10-inch option (opens in new tab) if you want something more affordable or bigger.
