The fire 8 tablets are much better than the 7. I'd go for the 8 over the 7. The Amazon tablets have great parental controls and you can set the content available by age range.

Yes, I did the same mistake with my kids. Twice, not once.
Get a used tablet first to see if it is worth to spend this much. My kids smashed about 6 when they were little.
Get a budget normal Android tablet for £20-30 used from eBay + a heavy duty/rugged cover or a used Innotab, again from eBay, pretty much the same price, see if your kid handles it or shows interest and make a decision to get a better one when he/she is a bit older.
£130 is a lot for what you want it for, that's pretty much the price for a decent tablet for an adult. You pay this much but your kid needs something basic, you will not take advantage of it, as will be outdated if it survives for more than a year.

Thank you for the advice! I know my son will love and use a tablet because given half a chance he is a technology fiend... ! Which is why he doesn't have a tablet already, but I'm struggling to work during lockdown so needs must!

Did you find that the games on the Innotab are educational enough?

Yes, for a 3 year old, my son is 3, they are. But you have to buy cartridges. With an Android one, you get free apps and there are plenty educational ones. TBH, my son is using more the cheap android tablet by other son had, and I only paid £15 for it. Honestly, a cheap one will do at this stage and once he gets used, in a year or two, you can get a better one. It is not about loving it or hate it, it is more about smashing them by mistake.

Thank you I'll probably go the cheap android route then. He loves the Teach Your Monster to Read app on my phone so any tablet that can handle that would be fine unlimited supply or apps too!

I thought the Amazon kids kindles came with a two your replacement guarantee if your kids break it? May be they don't do that anymore but they did when we bought ours a few years ago. The case that come with our kid's kindle is really good and has protected it from falls, knocks and throws across the room!

The annoying thing about the kid's kindle is that not all apps on the play store are available from the Amazon app store.

They do, I just had one replaced for a cracked screen. Maybe you only get this is you buy direct from Amazon? The accidental damage is well worth it.
Hi folks, from personal experience I would recommend getting the Fire HD 8 over the 7. The screen is better and it’s much faster and responsive for kids.

I would also recommend a good quality case with screen cover, over the Amazon kids chunk of plastic case, because they don’t really offer much protection.

Context: We have 3 x Fire HD 8 tablets, bought in late 2017, for KS1 kids to use. All three are still going strong. Before this we had a 7 which was poor in comparison.

Hope this helps someone
Appears to come with the 2 year worry free guarantee so no additional case is needed.

"Kid-proof fun - this tablet comes in robust Kid-Proof case and with a two-year worry-free guarantee, meaning that it can stand up to even the cheekiest of monkeys. If the tablet does break within two years, Amazon will send you a free replacement under your guarantee."
Fire 7 is Rubbish. 1 GB Ram is not enough.

I don't know, I never had one, but it makes sense to replace it. Lack of apps was one of the reasons I did not get one and got an Android.
@ScampiLamp
Amazon fire for kids are the best tabs for kids 3yrs old in my opinion. My twins have had theirs since that age.. They come with a good protective case and 2yr worry free warranty (might need to check but they did till few months ago atleast). Also come with 2yr fire for kids subscription included.
I side loaded app store using some videos from YouTube and once we ran out of the fire for kids we started downloading apps for them which they happily used. Very recently amazon had an offer on fire for kids subscription and I bought it again so now we are back using that. Twins are almost 5 so they enjoy games like teach monster and do lots of early years activities on them too. I would say go for it as you will not regret. We have fire 7 but have heard that 8 is better and yes having a memory card definitely helps
