"Fire Kids Edition tablets are the #1 best-selling kids' tablets in the United Kingdom and today, the Fire 7 Kids Edition is getting even better with a faster processor and a new kid-proof bumper with a stand", added Eric Saarnio. Not to mention, you get access to the Alexa voice assistant.

"For under £50, we're making it even better for customers with a faster processor and 2x the base storage, so customers can enjoy even more of their favourite entertainment at home and on- the-go". The tablets also include Amazon-exclusive features, including ASAP, Second Screen, For You, X-Ray, Prime Video Downloads and Amazon Fire For Kids.

"And, with the addition of hands-free access to Alexa on Fire 7, it's never been easier to get the news, call an Alexa contact, find a recipe, play music, and more".

The Fire 7 is available this year in Black as well as muted Plum, Sage, and Blue colors - to be honest, we're kinda missing the punchier blue, yellow, and red colors from 2017, but that's just us. On the other hand, mixed-use battery life is now rated at 7 hours, an hour less than the previous version, so take the pro and con as you will. Now, you just need to be connected to Wi-Fi. Importantly, the 2019 Fire 7 tablet retains its $50 starting price. Both tablets support hands-free Alexa alongside all the usual Amazon Prime services built in. It's backed by Amazon's signature 2-year "worry-free guarantee" that offers free replacement in case of damage and you also get a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited worth $119 with the purchase.

The Kids Edition comes with the same upgrades as the standard version but also adds an adjustable kickstand in its ruggedized casing.

The Kids Edition version is also available for preorder right now and will begin shipping on June 6.
