Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition
We just got back from a road trip to Texas and I spent most of the car ride marveling at how much we love our Kindle Fires. I must admit, when we first discussed getting Kindle Fires for our four year olds I was skeptical. They have been pretty capable of entertaining themselves during road trips without much technology and I didn't want technology taking over their lives at such a young age. I was eventually convinced though and here are the reasons.
Reasons We Love Our Kindles
*Technology is everywhere in our world today. The earlier kids learn to use it, like most things, the easier they pick it up. The Kindle offers a child appropriate way to practice technology navigating skills.
*The Kindle Fire Kids Edition is easy to use. We did sit down with each of our kids one on one and teach them how to use the Kindle before we took them on a road trip, but it took about 5 minutes to teach them both.
*Although the Kindle can play movies, we have ours set up to only do Games/Apps and Books right now. Before the Kindle our kids would often watch a movie for at least part of a road trip, now that time is often spent doing something more active and thought provoking then zoning out to Frozen for the millionth time.
*Quality content. Our twins are different people with very unique tastes and they both have found lots of books and games that they love. Their favorites? Our daughter loves the Sesame Street numbers game and our son loves the books that read to you. There are a variety of quality children's books and games on a variety of themes that practice developmentally appropriate skills.
*Awesome Parent Controls! Not only did we get to decide what games and books our kids had access to, but we can also decide how long they get to play with each thing. The parent controls are amazingly well thought out on the Kindle.
*The Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition is the perfect size for little hands. The durable case makes it easy to grip and protects it well. There is also a 2 Year Worry Free guarantee, which when you're placing a computer in a kid's hands is a major worry relief.
