The Amazon Kindle for Kids bundle helps children improve their reading skills. The bundle is now on offer for $99.99.
The Kindle for Kids bundle includes a 6-inch Kindle, two-year worry-free guarantee and a cover to keep the e-reader safe from scratches and occasional drops.
The original price of the bundle is $124.98 but Amazon is currently offering a 20 percent discount, which brings down the price to $99.99.
The bundle is made with kids in mind. The Kindle makes reading simple, fun and safe with the Kindle FreeTime feature that offers a lot to children as well as parents. Younger children will be able to search for stories without writing. Tapping on images can also search for related stories. Kindle FreeTime also enables children to set goals and track their progress.
"With Kindle FreeTime, children can view their reading progress for each book, track reading accomplishments for each day and earn achievement badges for reaching milestones," says Amazon.
The Kindle is said to have the best-in-class parental controls that offer peace of mind to parents.
"Parents can have peace of mind that kids won't access inappropriate content or websites, or accidentally make purchases as Kindle FreeTime blocks access to browsing and purchasing in the Kindle Store, access to the internet, access to Wikipedia and disables social sharing," says Amazon.
The two-year worry-free guarantee makes it easy for parents to replace the e-reader with a new one in case kids break it somehow.
The Kindle has some important tools like a built-in dictionary, vocabulary builder and a word wise feature that takes reading and learning to the next level. Kids also have the option to highlight text such as sentences and quotes they want to remember.
The Kindle offered in the bundle does not come with a backlight. The 6-inch Kindle measures 6.3 x 4.5 x 0.36 inches and weighs 5.7 ounces, making it easy for children to carry around.
The e-reader in the Kindle for Kids bundle comes with 4 GB of on-board storage, which is sufficient to store thousands of e-books. Kindle offers more than 250,000 children's book titles. Children will also have the option to borrow e-books from their public library.
The battery of the Kindle also lasts up to four weeks. Customers can fully charge their 6-inch Kindle within 4 hours via a USB cable connected to a computer.
Customers have the option pick a cover, which is available in black, blue, green, pink and purple color options as part of the Kindle for Kids bundle.
