The Amazon Fire HD 8 is the perfect tablet for kids, since its software is simple and there’s a ton of kid-friendly content. But a tablet isn’t inherently kid-friendly on its own, so grab one of these sturdy cases to make sure it makes it through drops, bumps, and general kiddie clumsiness.

Excellent value

Fintie silicone case

Our pick

Straight from Amazon

Amazon FreeTime case

Amazon has dubbed this case “kid-proof,” with its thick corner protection, large raised lip around the screen, and curved sides for easy grip. It comes in five colors, and though it’s rather thick, it’s lightweight for the little ones. The back has a textured design for extra grip as well.

Easy to carry

Avawo shock-proof case

If your toddlers are starting to use the tablet, then this case is perfect, since it features a carrying handle made for little hands. It’s much easier to hold onto than the slippery tablet on its own. The handle also folds to become a kickstand for hands-free gaming and video watching.

Cutest handle

Dinines kid-proof case

The carrying handle on this one is shaped like a cat’s ears, making this the cutest case on the list. But the ears aren’t just for show; when you fold out the kickstand legs, the ears can double as legs themselves. This case has reinforced corners to protect against drops, and it comes with a one-year warranty — even if it’s broken, Dinines will replace it for free.

Sleek protection

XIQI three-layer rugged case

If you have older kids using the Fire HD 8 or you simply want a more “grown-up” design, this case is perfect. It has a flexible outer layer of silicone, with a hard plastic shell and a hard plastic front edge, so you’re protected all the way around. There’s also a kickstand built into the back, which simply folds out and away when you don’t need it.

Super protection

Fintie Magic Ring case

Like a suit of armor, this case has a dual-layer back cover, along with a built-in scratch-resistant screen protector. The real “magic” is in the attached ring, which doubles as a kickstand and a handle, and it rotates all the way around for any orientation or grip. Pick this one up in six colors.

Beautiful designs

Famavala folio case

For the older kids, this folio case is the perfect way to express their personal style. There are eight gorgeous designs to choose from, including outer space, a world map, flowers, and more. The front cover folds into a kickstand, and it contains magnets to enable the wake/sleep function on your Fire HD 8.

Handle/kickstand combo

Tirin shock-proof case

This case has a rounded handle for little hands to hang on more easily, and it features two fold-out feet on the back, which become a kickstand for hands-free viewing. The hard silicone is washable and shock-absorbent, making it nearly drop-proof. Tirin provides a lifetime warranty, and there are six fun colors to choose from, at an excellent price.

Slim protection

Bear Motion silicone case

This is a honeycomb-backed case, which is on the slimmer side, making it perfect for older kids who don’t need a thick, drop-proof case. That’s not to say this one isn’t impact-resistant — the flexible silicone is shock-absorbent and durable, and the anti-slip pattern makes it even easier to hold onto. This case is even a great pick for adults.

Also great

MoKo silicone case

MoKo’s durable case has the honeycomb grid on the back as well as the sides, offering an excellent, textured grip all the way around. It comes in 11 great colors, and it’s slimmer than some kid-friendly cases, making it easier to pack and better-suited to older kids, though it’s still shock-absorbent. MoKo offers a lifetime warranty, just in case.

$ 14 at Amazon

If you’re getting the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet for your kids or you’re just sharing it with them, a good case should be a no-brainer — longevity is key.
