In order to lend strict verisimilitude to the product testing flow, I unboxed the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition when my toddler discovered the box sitting on my desk.
My pink iPad?” filled the air, I faced a split-second decision: Hide it, explain that not everyone gets everything they want all the time, and deal with the nuclear fallout as the four-month-old screamed in sympathy and dinner burned on the stove?
Or take the path of least resistance and hope that the arrival of food would distract her?
I sliced the box open, plugged it in, logged in, popped the kid in a chair and ordered Alexa to “watch Peppa Pig”.
A kid’s tablet has to be bomb-proof, it has to have easy controls for the kids (and for the parents), and it has to be able to summon child-friendly content in no fewer than six seconds.
The Fire 7 Kid’s Edition meets those requirements, and it does so at the reasonable price of $100.
