The world of e-readers is ever-evolving, and the Kids Kindle is no exception. Recently, the price of the 2019 Kids Kindle dropped to around $50, hinting at the arrival of a new model. Sure enough, the 2022 Kids Kindle made its debut this fall, and I have had the chance to explore every nook and cranny of this new device.

What is New with the 2022 Kids Kindle?

The 2022 Kids Kindle, much like its predecessor, is designed with young readers in mind. However, there are a couple of notable upgrades that deserve attention:

  • Improved Screen: The new Kids Kindle boasts a higher resolution screen, which means text and images are sharper, making for a more comfortable reading experience.
  • Longer Battery Life: One of the most practical improvements is the extended battery life. Now, kids can enjoy reading for weeks on a single charge, which is perfect for long trips or just everyday use.

The Similarities

Despite these upgrades, the new Kids Kindle retains many features of the 2019 model:

  • Black and White Display: It still has a black and white screen, which is easier on the eyes than a colour display.
  • Familiar Navigation: The menus and navigation have remained the same, ensuring a seamless transition for current users.
  • Audible Audiobooks: The device continues to support Audible audiobooks, which can be listened to with Bluetooth headphones or a speaker.

To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade?

The biggest question on everyone’s mind is whether the new features justify an upgrade. If you already own a recent Kindle that’s functioning well, the answer is probably no. The changes are not significant enough to warrant the additional expense. However, if you are new to the Kindle family or your old device is on its last legs, the 2022 Kids Kindle is definitely worth considering.

Final Thoughts

The new Kids Kindle is a testament to the idea that sometimes, small changes can make a big difference. Whether it is the sharper screen or the longer battery life, these enhancements contribute to a more enjoyable reading experience for our young bookworms.
