Today Amazon unveiled a slew of new tablets, including a new Kids Edition tablet.

Amazon released its first kid-friendly tablet last year for $150. Now it’s dropping the price to $99.

The new device comes with an updated durable casing that the company promises to replace if destroyed by an unruly child. In addition, Amazon is including a year’s subscription to FreeTime Unlimited, its apparently kid-appropriate entertainment network. The service gives kids access to 20,000 websites and YouTube videos.

Amazon also launched a new $50 Fire tablet today and revamped its Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
