Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet design
The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition has a simple and functional design. The rubber bumper case does a great job of protecting the tablet from bumps or drops. The case also includes a handy kick-stand that lets you set the tablet upright for hands-free use.
It also has a 10.1” high-definition touchscreen, with 1920 x 1200 resolution at 224 PPI, and 1080p full HD video playback. The front-facing speakers make content easy to hear when in use. In addition, the 2MP front-facing camera is perfect for selfies, videos, and video conferencing. There’s also a 2MP HD camera on the rear of the device for better-quality photos.
Setting up the Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet is simple. The first step is to create a child profile in your Amazon Household settings. You’ll find this option in your Amazon account settings, under Amazon Household.
Once you’ve set up your child’s profile, it will appear on the Fire tablet as a user you can switch to by tapping the icons on the lock screen.
