This Fire Tablet is much Better than the Last one. Please improve the Freetime Experience!
By Shira Sandford
We got this the day it came out. I have a four year old daughter, and she loves it! We have an iPad for her, but it was getting very expensive because so many of the games have buttons that you can click which then tell you about things you need to buy and she would have to have them. This tablet restricts all in app purchasing. Yay! We tried the older version of this tablet but it kept freezing and did not perform well. But so far, this one works well. I have two requests to Amazon, and I am hoping that someone from Amazon reads my review so they can make this change. Please change Amazon Freetime so that it puts the story apps that are under apps into the books sections. There are many wonderful stories that are read out loud but they are in the apps section instead of the books section, so then when I restrict her tablet to books only, she can't access them. I would love it so much if you they would fix this. A few examples of the stories she can't access when I restrict her to books because they are considers apps are the following: Nighty Night!, Charlie Brown's, The Berenstain Bears, and Dino-Store Story. The other recommendation I have is to please hide from view the activities that are restricted. As it is now, she can see all the apps but gets an error message when she selects them. I really like this product, and I think it so great for children. It just needs a few little improvements to the Freetime interface.

A nice attempt at making a truly child-friendly tablet
By Tech Insider
June 18 is not only the Father's Day but also my older daughter's birthday. She turns 6 years old this year and we thought that tablet would be a nice birthday gift for her. Her younger sister has Fire 7", so it was logical for us to buy Fire 8" for her, as she's older.
We bought this tablet for her more with an educational purpose, than to watch cartoons. My husband is a software engineer and he really wants our daughter to learn how to code. There are so many different apps for that.
We have already tested it today, when the tablet arrived, but haven't shown it to our daughter yet.
There are three different colors and we chose the blue one, as it's her favorite color. It's very bright, the case looks like removable foam shell, very sturdy and easy to grab. It's actually a very nice decision of adding yellow color because when brother and sister share one device, it's better to go neutral.
There is a possibility to expand storage up to 256 Gb, but I think 32 Gb on board will be more than enough for my daughter.
Big cutouts make it easier to access to the volume and power buttons, as well as the charging port and headphone jack.
The display is ok for the price. When I watched Peppa Pig, images looked sharp and colors were vibrant, even at extreme angles. The sound is much better here than in Fire 7" Kids Edition, and that's due to dual stereo speakers.
I don't know how easy and intuitive the interface will be for our daughter, but for us it was great, nothing odd or unnecessary. My favorite option is Parent Control. I can password-protect purchases (including in-app purchases), Wi-Fi access and more. I can also set educational goals, for example, my daughter will be able to watch cartoons only after she does some coding with her dad for 20 minutes.
Cameras really bad, which is a bit sad, as my daughter love to take pictures. All of the shots I've taken were done outside, in our backyard. Even with a perfect lighting, they had a purplish hue and fuzzy edges. The selfie camera on the front gone further and made me look like an elf.
Battery life is probably the strongest side f this tablet. I used it hard today and still had 30% left. Very impressed!
Is it worth the massive price premium over the standard HD 8, though? Not quite. It's nice to have a two-year warranty, and the case is nice, but for what you're really paying is a parental control. We all want to protect our children from the dark sides of the internet and Amazon Fire 8" can help a lot with it, just be ready to pay for that.

YES you CAN download apps like KidsYou Tube!
By Amazon Customer
I feel like a lot of the bad reviews are from people who do not know what they are doing, or don't fully understand how to use the tablet to its full potential. This tablet DOES allow you download any app that you would find on the play store! Because of the parental features you have to first download them on YOUR PARENT PROFILE FIRST!! I love that about this tablet. Also, I can block the camera AND web browser so my child can't access that either! I can put a pass code on pretty much everything like profiles, WiFi access, settings, etc. It's really easy to set up and it came almost fully charged so I had plenty of time download what I wanted for my daughter and set it all up before I had to put it on the charger... It does, however, take a bit long to complete charge to 100%, but no big deal. This is a great tablet so far and we are thoroughly enjoying it :)
