Amazon today announced the expansion of Amazon Fire for Kids and Fire for Kids Unlimited to the new Kindle Kids Edition, Amazon’s first dedicated reading experience built for kids, and the next generation Fire HD 10 Kids Edition. With these new devices, families can enjoy premium, kid-friendly content through their Fire for Kids Unlimited subscription, all wrapped with easy-to-use parental controls.
First Dedicated Reading Experience Built Just for Kids Kindle Kids Edition is a new reading experience designed just for kids—now young readers can leave the heavy books at home and carry a library full of books (plus a dictionary!) on one lightweight device. And like all Kindle devices, it offers a sanctuary reading experience with no distractions. Kindle Kids Edition comes with the latest Kindle, a kid-friendly case, one year of Amazon Fire for Kids Unlimited, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee—if anything happens to it, send it back and Amazon will replace it.
Featuring a six-inch, 167 ppi e-ink display with an adjustable front light, Kindle Kids Edition makes it comfortable to read in a variety of places—whether outside in the sun or bedtime at night. Plus, with a battery that lasts weeks, not days, kids can enjoy reading as long as they like and parents can leave the charger at home.
With one year of Fire for Kids Unlimited included with the Kindle Kids Edition, kids have access to over a thousand kid-friendly books, including chapter books and award-winning titles like the complete Harry Potter book series, Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Steven Lenton and The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. Coming soon, kids can listen to their favourite Audible books via headphones or a Bluetooth speaker. Plus, Kindle Kids Edition comes with features that encourage kids to build their skills as they go, including:
Achievement Badges—kids can earn badges like Book Worm and Over Achiever when they make progress towards pre-defined goals.
Easy Discovery—with enhanced browsing and search, kids can locate titles without the exact spelling. And with smart recommendations, kids can find books related to the genres, authors, and characters they love.
Word Wise—kids are automatically provided short and simple definitions above difficult words, so they can keep reading with fewer interruptions.
Dictionary—if kids come across a difficult word, they can select the word to look up the definition via the built-in Kindle dictionary.
Vocabulary Builder—words looked up in dictionaries are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder and turned into flashcards for future review and learning.
Kid-friendly Wallpaper—included are a unique set of lock screen wallpapers, specifically designed for kids.

good idea to mention it here, but it would help Customer Service if the announcement was made on the product page on the various Amazon websites. Ditto for Prime Video with just a simple line of text stating that the service is only available for residents of X country with the exception of videos produced by Amazon
