I have the original Kindle Fire and I like it, but don't love it. My main problem is that I hate the fact that I can't access the Google Play store, which means I am often sideloading adds I download and transfer from my phone. Kids won't have to deal with that. I have used the HD and it is nice. One work around with the "being so easily linked to the Amazon shopping system" I have seen is people buying those prepaid credit cards and opening an account on one of those. My friend does that with his kids and they get $10 a month on theirs if they are good.
