The best early access Prime Day deals for kids: Fire Tablets, iPad, smartwatches

Much of the Prime Day 2019 hype is around 4K TVs, laptops, smartphones and smart home devices, but the shopping event is also a great opportunity to save on products for your kids. With early access deals, which just became available at 3 p.m. ET, Amazon discounted a full suite of its devices and tablets, including all of the kids edition Fire tablets, and dropping the Echo Dot for kids to its lowest price ever. Some of us may not be ready to think about back-to-school shopping, but if your children are going to need tablets before their school year kicks off, there’s no better time to save on electronics than now with these Prime Day deals.

In addition to Amazon devices, Walmart flipped the deals switch this weekend, dropping prices on thousands of products before Amazon’s 48-hour Prime Day official start on Monday, July 15 at 3 a.m. Below, we’ve curated all the best tech deals for your kids that are already live from the two major retail giants. Need a couple of things for yourself and home? Here’s a list of early access deals on all Amazon devices.
