Amazon Now Offers Kindle Kids Edition For Your Children

Amazon launched a new Kindle Kids Edition for children, which is its first-ever reading experience targeted at young e-readers.

Amazon has been offering kid-friendly Fire tablet editions for a period of time, but now, it has launched the Kindle Kids Edition for its young Kindle e-readers. The edition has a budget Kindle coupled with a two-year warranty for free replacement if the device breaks, one-year FreeTime Unlimited subscription for free, and a case. Those who want to buy the bundle can pre-order now for $110 (roughly Rs. 7,800). And the shipment will start on October 30. Otherwise, the device without the aforementioned extras will cost $90 (roughly Rs. 6,400). It is known that currently, the company has not planned to introduce the Kids Edition for Oasis or Paperwhite series.


Amazon said that FreeTime Unlimited is:


The monthly subscription for one kid (after the free one-year offer ends) is priced at Rs 213 for Prime membership and Rs 356 for non-Prime membership. Additionally, there is also a family option for multiple kids which costs Rs 498 per month for Prime membership or Rs 712 per month for non-Prime membership.

As soon as users subscribe to FreeTime Unlimited, they can enjoy the service on all compatible devices. Recently, the company introduced this service for its Echo speakers as well as announced that Fire TV products will have a video-centric version of the service. The service can run on the second-generation Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Stick besides the first & second-generation Fire TVs. According to the company, it will soon select Fire TV Edition TVs.


In addition to attractive case design, the Kindle edition for kids comes with several kid-friendly features. Let’s take a look at these features below:

  • Achievement Badges: young e-readers can gain badges like Over Achiever and Book Worm when they improve towards their pre-defined targets.
  • Easy Discovery: Kids are able to locate the book titles without accurate spelling with upgraded search and browsing. And they can also find books based on the authors, characters, genres they like thanks to the smart recommendations.
  • Word Wise: Children are offered simple and short definitions above difficult words automatically, so they still can read with fewer interruptions.
  • Dictionary: Kids can look up the definition of a word through a pre-installed Kindle dictionary.
  • Vocabulary Builder: Words that users looked up in the dictionary are added automatically to Vocabulary Builder and then turned into vocabulary flashcards for users to review and learn in the future.
