The Fire HD 10 is another Amazon tablet that combines affordability with versatility. With the 10.1-inch display, you’ll get a larger screen without adding much to the overall cost. The Kids Edition version of the Fire HD 10 comes with the same perks as the Fire 7 Kids Edition, including a protective case, a two-year worry-free guarantee, and a year subscription to Amazon Kids+. You can get the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition for $199, or pick up the standard Fire HD 10 for $149. 

Either way, you get Amazon’s largest tablet with a 1080p display. It has a USB-C port for faster charging, and up to 12 hours of battery life. Performance isn’t on par with an iPad, but in my experience testing, it’s better than the Fire 7. If your child is older and needs more of a laptop-like experience, Amazon sells a productivity bundle that includes a Bluetooth keyboard designed specifically for Fire HD 10. 

Amazon’s Appstore has a respectable list of apps available, with staples like Zoom, Microsoft 365 apps, and Facebook readily available. But you won’t find any of Google’s apps listed due to Fire OS, the operating system all Fire tablets run, not being certified by Google.
