Kindle Fire for Kids: Detailed Review, Specs and Features


The Fire for Kids tablet is a well-built, sturdy device that comes in many bright colors. The rubber casing offers a good grip of the device. It gets wider bezels around the screen than a typical Kindle. It measures 169 x 103 x 10.7 mm. It weighs more than the 180 gram Voyage reader by Kindle.

Operating System

The Fire for Kids 6 is powered by Android Fire OS. It features a carousel app menu that displays the most commonly used apps. It has some bloatware from Amazon. Your kids may find some of the apps useful though. You will also find popular apps, such as Twitter, Facebook and Netflix. While you can access emails and perform normal Web browsing, you will not find Google products, such as YouTube in the Amazon store. If you have been using Google’s tablet devices, such as Samsung Tablet 3 for Kids, then you will need some time to familiarize yourself with its interface. The Fire HD 6 gets a 6-inch screen featuring a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.

Processing Speed and Other Features

Video streaming looks pretty decent on the Fire HD 6. The screen size is also appropriate for reading purposes. The device is powered by a 1.21 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor. It comes with 1GB of RAM. The device comes in two storage options: 8GB and 16GB. One downside is that you cannot add an external device, such as microSD card to the device as it lacks microSD card slot. It gets an 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter and supports Bluetooth file transfer.


Kindle Fire for Kids gets a 2-megapixel back camera that may not be the best option for taking pictures. It comes fitted with an HDR mode that improves the photo quality slightly, but that’s the best this low-resolution camera can manage.

Battery Life

It gets an impressive battery that lasts almost 8 hours.


Overall, the Amazon Kindle Fire for Kids is an impressive device well worth its price. Users familiar with other Google-powered tablet devices may have varying views about the unavailability of Play store. It comes with limited apps and features compared to the Play Store from Google. For kids though, it is one sturdy device that comes with a lot of useful apps and games. It is also one of the best choices for people who already use Amazon products and services.
