And the one-year free subscription to Amazon Kids means 12 months’ complementary videos, apps, games, books and more. The Amazon Fire HD 10 made it to the top of IndyBest’s list of kids’ tablets list, with our reviewer particularly liking “the colourful bumper [that] protects the electronic device from harm if it’s dropped.”
