When we bring out our Christmas decorations each year, we it includes a bin full of books and movies for the holidays. Some of the books are from my childhood, lovingly packed away each year to be brought out again and again. Technology has changed some of our holiday traditions, like using our Echo Dot Kids Edition to track Santa or sing Jingle Bells. This year, we’ve partnered with Amazon to create holiday memories with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet . Christmas just went digital.

Go digital this Christmas with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet
Our traditions during the holidays include watching movies as a family, reading books, and of course, baking cookies. The trips to grandma’s house just got a lot easier because my mom just moved next door!
We’ve decided to go digital this Christmas and add a little tech to our traditions. Having a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet has enhanced our holiday traditions in a really fun way.
I know it sounds crazy to hand a tablet over to three kids who are super excited about Winter Break, but let me tell you why I’m okay with it, and why you should put the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet under your tree too.
What makes the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. different from other tablets?
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet is almost impossible to destroy. I’d like to say we have never had a tablet meet a fateful demise, but we have. Had it been a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet, I wouldn’t have cried real tears.

The Parent Dashboard
What I love love love (love!) about our Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. is I am able to set up a separate profile for each kid. Want my five year old to be able to view different videos than his ten year old brother? Easy! The Parent Dashboard makes it easy to set time limits, adjusting age filters, enabling/disabling web browser access, and allowing in-app purchasing. I love how I can access The Parent Dashboard from both the table and my phone. Since the kids are on vacation for two weeks, it’s easy for me to give them a little more screen time.
It’s no question why the #1 kids’ tablets in the U.S. is the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. with all of these great features. We’re able to take our holiday traditions, and make Christmas digital. I love that there are a large variety of Christmas titles that are available in Amazon FreeTime Unlimited – but lots of other holidays too, It’s a great addition to under our tree.
How We Create Holiday Memories with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet makes it really easy to watch Christmas movies and videos, the kids can search for age appropriate movies, or I can download them for offline viewing too. It’s nice to send Quincy and Edison over to their Nanni’s place to watch a favorite video like The Snowy Day or The Littlest Angel– she doesn’t have to worry about having a bunch of DVDs because it’s all on their Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet!
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. has thousands of books, including a great collection of Christmas books. I love that I can send the kids over to my moms, for story time by the fire, they can easily ready books like Winter, Cold and Snow. If they want just one more story, it’s easy to just search for new favorite. Plus, since there are Audible selections, they can have the story read to them while they are making Christmas treats or crafts.
Most of our traditional family cookie recipes I can make with my eyes closed, but if we want to try a new recipe, or maybe just get inspired by new ways to decorate our gingerbread cookies, we can use the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. to look them up.
