Performance and specifications
Kids Edition starts in FreeTime with kid-friendly navigation and personalized child profiles. Parents can switch between Amazon FreeTime and their profile with a password to access the full-featured Fire tablet experience as needed.
Designed with kids in mind
Kids Edition starts in FreeTime, which is built from the ground up just for kids. The background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design, they only see the titles that they have access to see, the home screen carousel shows their recently viewed titles, and they can even navigate visually to content based on characters or topics—for example "Elmo," "Dinosaurs," or "Puppies.”
Profile for kids
Parents can create up to four individual child profiles and choose titles from their own collection of content that they want to give each of their kids access to. It's like giving each kid their very own, personalized tablet. A child’s profile does not have access to the Fire HD built-in web browser, in-app purchases, email, or social media features. Show me
Profile for parents
Parents can take Kids Edition out of FreeTime using a password. Fine tune settings, download apps, or share kids’ drawings with family on Facebook. You can choose specific books, videos, and apps for your child to see in Amazon FreeTime from your library.
