At its autumn event, Amazon introduced two new Fire Kids devices, including upgraded editions of the Fire HD 10 Kids and Fire HD 10 Kids Pro. While there aren’t many physical changes, these two new tablets have been introduced alongside some new apps that make them fantastic possibilities for entertaining the entire family, not just youngsters.
The new applications and games on offer are the main draws here. Amazon’s huge new push is to incorporate AI into its goods, and these two Kids tablets are no exception. The new Music Maker app is described as a “experience” that allows youngsters to become composers while being monitored by an AI. Children will be able to select from a variety of instruments and sound effects and combine them into their own compositions with the help of the app’s AI.

Amazon is also bringing ten new Play Together games, including Checkers and Memory Match, to the Fire Kids tablets. The goal is to introduce additional family-friendly alternatives to Fire Kids tablets in order to bring children and parents together for recreation, even if they are geographically separated – adults may participate in the fun from other devices across the nation. The latest version also includes “Quests,” which are essentially collections of books, videos, and applications that take youngsters deeper into various themes. The subjects are diverse and centered on areas of natural appeal to children, such as dinosaurs or space exploration.
The Music Maker software, new Play Together games, and Quests are all accessible through the Amazon Kid+ membership, which is included for free with the purchase of any new Fire Kids tablet, including the two new Fire HD 10 Kids models.
We indicated that the hardware improvements for the two tablets were quite minor, and that is mostly correct. As expected, there are certain internal improvements that warrant the new models. There’s a new CPU that Amazon claims is 25% quicker than previous models, and the entire device is lighter than before, which is a significant improvement when you consider the target audience for these two tablets is between the ages of three and twelve.
The two tablets have the same 3GB of RAM, 1080p display, and 5-megapixel cameras as the previous version, as well as the same battery life. Keeping this in mind, the pricing is an added bonus The Fire HD 10 Kids and Kids Pro are $10 cheaper than the previous generation, with prices starting from $190.
The Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids and HD 10 Kids Pro will be available next month, with pricing starting at $190. Both feature a 12-month subscription to Amazon Kids+.
