No matter your stance on the right amount of screen time for kids, it’s inevitable that your kiddos will be exposed to some sort of tablet, computer or smartphone at an early age. And let’s be honest: there’s nothing better at keeping your kids entertained than a tablet (especially when you want to finally get a little peace and quiet while you keep them busy watching a movie or playing a game).

So, if you've been thinking of picking up a tablet for your kids, now is the perfect time because we scored an exclusive deal on our favorite kids-friendly tablet. Amazon is offering an amazing deal for Real Simple readers on the Amazon Fire Tablet Kids Edition.

Starting today until October 18, you can shop three different editions of the kids tablet—Fire 7, Fire HD 8, and Fire HD 10—for 20 percent off with code FIRETABLET20.

Plus at no additional cost, each Fire Kids Edition includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which is a content subscription that includes more than 20,000 books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games for kids ages 3-12. Because the Fire Kids Edition comes with a kid-proof case and the capability to download content even when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, you won’t have to worry about the tablet breaking or whether or not the kids have enough content to keep them occupied.

And if you’re still weary about buying tech gadgets for your kids, especially when they involve internet access, the Fire Kids tablet is a great option because of the built-in parental controls. The tablet’s browser automatically blocks inappropriate content, and parents have the option to set bedtime curfews to limit screen time or block access to entertainment until homework is done.
