Amazon’s lineup of Fire tablets for kids is up to $40 off until the beginning of November. Compared to its standard tablet offering, which is cheaper upfront, each Kids Edition tablet ships with a colorful case that protects it from general wear and tear, plus a two-year “no questions asked” warranty that lets you replace it for any reason. You also get a year-long subscription to FreeTime Unlimited, Amazon’s all-in-one service that combines a selection of kid-appropriate games, apps, ebooks, and TV shows / movies.

The cheapest Kids Edition tablet option is the $79 Fire 7, or you can opt for the Fire 8 or the Fire 10, which has the largest screen. All three sizes feature a microSD slot that allows for expandable storage should you reach the limits of what the tablet can store, so don’t base your decision on storage capacity. Instead, focus on the size that you think your kid will most enjoy and be able to easily tote around in their bag or your car’s seatback.

We expect all of Amazon’s products to be offered at a discount during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, though the savings may come in the form of a bundle for its newer products, like the 3rd-generation Amazon Echo Dot and 2nd-generation Amazon Echo Show.
