The Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet is just $60 right now.


I know, I know: Amazon tablets go on sale all the time. But right now I feel like we're living in a more tablet-necessary moment, especially with kids nationwide home from school indefinitely. Maybe it's opportunism on Amazon's part, and maybe it's just been a few weeks since the last sale. Either way, this is a great time to score a deal. (Note that delivery may take longer than usual, though right now I'm seeing a turnaround time of about four days.) Update: Some of these prices are available only to Amazon Prime subscribers.

For a limited time, you can get the Fire 7 Kids Edition in blue or pink for $59.99, which ties the all-time low price for that model. It normally sells for $99.99.

Also on sale right now: The Fire HD 8 with Special Offers for $49.99. Regular price: $79.99. It's available in your choice of four colors.

Amazon recently expanded this sale to include the Fire 7 with Special Offers for $39.99 (not the lowest price ever, but a $10 savings) and Fire HD 10 for $99.99 (which ties the lowest price ever).

If you're the parent of a younger kid, the Kids Edition might be just the thing you need right now. It includes a kid-proof case (with stand, which is excellent), a two-year warranty (double the standard Fire tablet warranty) and a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which affords access to a boatload of kid-friendly content: apps, games, books and educational shows from the likes of PBS Kids and Nickelodeon.

Both tablets come with 16GB of storage, which isn't a ton for downloading things like games and movies -- but it's easily expandable via inexpensive microSD cards. Here's a 64GB card for all of $9.

These are great tablets for the money, and excellent at slinging all manner of entertainment (and education) for everyone stuck at home.
