A Family Device
While the Fire HD 8 tablet is great for entertaining yourself, you can also use it to keep the kids busy. When you activate the Fire for Kids app, the background colour and fonts change to a child friendly design, and they can only see the content that you allow them to access. The tablet allows you to limit their screen time and set daily limits for tablet use or restrict certain categories such as games and video while leaving ample time for reading and learning.
