This tablet was a gift to my daughter for her birthday and she loves it. I do as well, since I do happen to use it, especially to watch videos in bed or read an e-book. It is suited for that purpose because it's light and easy to hold. The 32 GB memory allows it to run quite a few applications at once without freezing or delay. The hdx display really show clear images and videos and the colours are vibrant. I only gave the tablet 4 stars because I have a feeling that the battery needs charging up quite often but it's only a small thing compared to all the good things it comes with.
I like the fact that parents can control what the kids can access and this is so easily done in the parental controls located in settings. The kids cannot purchase anything on amazon or in an app without entering a password so parents don't get surprise bills.
Kids can have hours of fun learning, playing, listening to music and watching videos, as well as taking pictures and making their own videos with the great integrated camera.
All in all, I say go ahead if you're thinking of getting this tablet for yourself or your kids.
