Amazon launches Kindle for Kids bundle just in time for Summer

Kindle For Kids

Kids need to read too right? If they are going to be in front of any type of electronic screen while inside, some of that time should be dedicated to something other than gaming. Well to help alleviate that, Amazon has launched a Kindle for Kids bundle that aims to help get those bookworms a kindle of their own, and leave their parents with some piece of mind.

Included in the Kindle for Kids bundle, is a standard Kindle, a “kid-friendly cover”, and an extended warranty provided by SquareTrade. The kid-friendly cover comes in either blue, green, pink, purple or black, so there are plenty of options for your little ones. What’s really awesome is the SquareTrade warranty that provides protection up to two years, for accidental spills and drops.

If purchased separately, you would be spending close to $150 on all of this, just to get your kids up and rolling for some summer-time reading sessions. However, with the Kindle for Kids bundle, you get the Kindle, case, and the extended warranty for only $99. That’s a heck of a deal, and honestly, one that I was considering for myself. Kinda. Okay I was.

Now to throw some fun into the mix the Kindle that your child receives will include Kindle FreeTime which allows kids the ability to view their reading progress of each book, and earn badges for reaching specific milestones and accomplishments. This can really help out and make reading enjoyable for you and your children. Also, since this is just the traditional Kindle, there is no way for the kids to access regular websites or social media, so that they can just focus on reading without any other distractions from the device itself. Finally, parents won’t have to worry about accidental purchases or charges to their credit cards. This is thanks to the fact that the Kindle will only be loaded up via the parents’ existing Kindle library or purchased from the Kindle Store and added to the Kindle FreeTime Profile.

This is a great deal to get a jump start on the summer, and turn more than a few kids into some bookworms. Let us know what you think about this great deal from Amazon in the comments below.
