Amazon is soon to launch its first ever tablet aimed at kids - the Fire HD Kids Edition.
As well as featuring a more robust build, the tablet gives parents options to help manage screen time and encourage learning goals.
The tablet also has the option of blocking in-app payments - avoiding the headache of children racking up bills via online games.
Amazon says it also comes with over 5,000 books, movies, TV episodes, educational apps, and games.
Prices start at $149 (£92) but there are no confirmed plans to launch the product in the UK yet.
