Playing with the Kindle Fire HD

Ana took the Kindle Fire HD with her to Washington. Jasmine is very happy that she's home .. the tablet that is ;-)

Kindle Fire HD

She kind of missed her mom too.

We got two Kindle Fire HDs for Christmas this year. One is shared between mommy and Jasmine, while daddy and Jaiden share the other. Mine and Jaiden's is full of books and videos, while the mommy/Jas tablet is mainly loaded up with games.

They really like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja.

In our picture of the day, Jasmine was taking a break from the "fun" games to play something slightly more educational; hangman I believe.

I'm tempted to write a mini review about our experience with the Fire HD, but since it's only been about a month and a half, and since this is our first experience with any tablet (so I can't really compare it to anything), I think I'm going to hold off for a little while ... other than to say that we're generally happy, and feel like we're getting our $199 worth.

p.s. Do you have a tablet?

  1. Hi Todd,
    Thanks for sharing. I don't have a Kindle Fire HD, but I have a friend's daughter that has one. I think she spends half her life with it along with all the other electronic things she has. She must have one of everything that has come out so far.
    I know mommy Ana and Jasmine; Daddy/Todd and Jaiden have lots of fun with these. Keeps you occupied when you have nothing else to do, LOL, as if you don't :)
    $199 for a Kindle Fire HD? Where did you fid one for that cost. The ones I've price here are much more expensive than that.
    Keep having fun and don't get those Kindle Fire HD'S too fired up they cause a fire, LOL. Just kidding of course :).

  2. Cille,

    The 7" Kindle Fire HDs are $199 on Amazon. The 8.9" ones are $299.

    We're all about the electronics in our house too. And truth be told, I actually prefer to watch tv shows and movies on the Kindle Fire. I can set it on my chest, so the perspective is just about the same as watching a 46" tv that's across the room. Even better, from my perspective is that I can use my headphones with the Fire, so no distractions.

  3. Todd,
    Sounds awesome, Todd. I need to check into one of these for my house. I like the idea of setting it on your chest and the headphones to keep down distractions.
    I'm going to check into one of those. Also these are good ideas for Christmas gifts this year for those that don't have one.
    Thanks for sharing.
