Best Android tablet for kidsKey features:

New for 2014, the Amazon Fire HD 6 is one of the first sub-7-inch tablets we’ve seen. It uses a 6-inch screen, giving it proportions that kids are more likely to get on with. Just as important, it’s also cheap.
At £80 for the 8GB version, you’re not going to have to cancel your kid's pocket money for a whole year if they accidentally drop it. In tablets of this price, you generally have to deal with a great many hardware cuts, but there are remarkably few here. The Fire HD 6 has a good-quality IPS screen, a surprisingly powerful processor and very good battery life.
It’s not as slim as we’d like and it uses Amazon’s more restrictive Fire OS rather than normal Android, but it’s still a corker for kids or budget buyers.
