Kindle Fire for Kids: Our 2011 Hot Holiday Pick

Kindle Fire with Children's BooksOf all the hot holiday picks this year, our #1 choice has to be the Kindle Fire. The Kindle is a very smart purchase for children because of its versatility. Not only is it a top notch color eReader for kids with over 1,000 children's bestselling titles available, it is also an awesome game and entertainment tablet. The beauty of the Kindle Fire is that It offers a variety of kid-friendly features and apps that span the ages from tots to teens, appealing to both boys and girls. The Kindle Fire is a sophisticated device that has the ability to grow with your child, making it a worthwhile investment for the entire family.

The Kindle Fire is designed to be super easy to use with its extra durable touchscreen. It's a well designed reading machine that houses numerous favorite children's books with vivid, full color illustrations. This display boasts an amazing 16 million colors. There are classics like Brown Bear, Curious George, chapter books, children's bestsellers, comic books, color magazines and more. In fact, the Kindle Fire has over one million bestsellers available for readers of all ages and abilities. Children's eBooks are the wave of the future, bringing excitement and a brand new twist on reading to young readers. All it takes is downloading the quality children's literature available in the Kindle library.

The Kindle Fire is also destined to be the perfect "one stop" source for children's entertainment. The Kindle FIre is designed to support your child's favorite apps and games making it a great game machine. But wait, there's more…don't forget the choice of over 100,000 movies and TV shows including a wide selection of children's shows that you can download and enjoy. If your child still wants more, he can listen to selections from his very own music library or spend some time surfing the web using Silk, Amazon's super fast and easy to use web browser.

Another great kid friendly feature is that the Kindle Fire is extremely portable and is perfect for kids on the go. It weighs in under 1 pound and measures 7.5" x 4.7"x 0.45" which makes it small enough and light enough to fit in children's backpacks, mom's purse or just about anywhere. However, although the Kindle is designed to be portable and durable, we recommend purchasing a Kindle MicroShell folio cover (available in different colors) to provide additional protection for your child's Kindle. The Kindle FIre is also great for kids because its larger screen is more suitable for young, developing readers than smaller screens, and allows for the Kindle "pop up text" feature so that kids can enlarge text when necessary.

Best of all, the Kindle Fire costs significantly less than its competitors, selling for only $199. Plus, if you subscribe to Amazon Prime, you receive 2 day free Amazon shipping all the time, and your first month of Amazon Prime free! Amazon truly has a real hit on its hands with what it calls a "premium product for a non-premium price." Still not convinced? Get all the details and see a demo for yourself at the Amazon Kindle Store.

The Kindle has had very impressive pre-order sales before its official release on November 15, 2011, so our recommendation is to order yours today at the Amazon Kindle Store before they are all gone. They certainly got the name right, because this Kindle is truly on fire. There is no question about it… it's our #1 holiday pick for kids.
