Video Examination and Some Kindle Fire 5th Gen Tossing (Seriously!)
[[VIDEOID:987bd7086417e820d28d4f4a226f1a92]]Yes, I bought myself the Kid-Proof Case. Why? Because I wanted a case that made the rather thin corners of the 5th Gen Fire feel comfortable and fully supported in my palms, as well as keeping my thumb off the screen (all those smears just from holding it, yeeeesh!). Plus, even adults love to have "Free Time"!
I had wanted a silicone casing, in the same overall design as this, but currently there is precious little for the 5th Gen aside from all the same-o, same-o flip covers. And I am more than happy with this robust foam. As I show in my video, this puppy has some SERIOUS depth to the bumper protection insets (yes, I toss my Fire about on my work table in my video to demonstrate). Yet the way the power button is still easily accessible, sight-unseen, shows foresight in design. I have a flip case for my Samsung Tab 3 that makes finding and pushing the power button a Peek-a-Boo game every time.
Fantastic grip texture, too. Even with damp hands (like when I am sitting in my hot tub with this, watching Amazon Prime Video). :)

I actually bought this for my hubby's new Fire. He has arthritis in his hands, and drops things constantly. This is perfect protection for just that purpose. He really likes it, and says it makes it easier to hold onto.

Buy the $50 tablet and $20 case or a $100 package worth up to $160? Read this review to help you decide.
By John Ryan
Really impressed by the design of the tablet cover for the 2015 Fire Tablet (the 7” one).
* It makes the 7” tablet almost indestructible (I have one with the $99.99 Kindle Fire edition and dropped it from 6 feet - it bounced)
* It has soft round edging, and easier for my 3 year old to carry around
* It creates a rubber protection both the tablet and other children when she “accidentally” hits another child with it. (Funny/sad but inevitable)
* The clever design of the speaker housing surprisingly improves rather then hinders the speaker.
My only question is why would you buy this and the $49.99 tablet separately, and not the $99.99 Kids edition tablet? Obviously because it’s double the price? So I did some searching to find what’s included in the package?
In the $99.99 Kids Edition tablet you get….
1. The $49.99 7” Kindle Fire Tablet (yes, the exact same device - right down the orange packaging)
2. The $19.99 soft blue/pink bumper case (sold separately on Amazon)
3. Two year accidental damage cover (sold separately for $29.99)
4. A year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited ($2.99 per month if you have Prime, $4.99 without).
You’re therefore getting $135-$160 of “stuff” for $100, after which you’ve the option to extend your first year’s “FreeTime” subscription. This does of course mean you can mix-and-match, and (for example) buy the device for $50 and case for $30, and save money up front.
Of course Amazon provide a free 30 day returns policy, so you could change your mind.
