Amazon's Fire line of tablets have always been a popular staple for looking for a cost-effective way to consume videos, read books, play games and surf the internet. "Now, kids can easily prop up their tablet to watch their favorite videos, dance along to the Pinkfong!" A 32GB model is also on offer, priced at £59.99.

External media doubles, too, as the device now supports microSD expansion cards up to 512GB. Amazon boasts that the new Fire 7 is twice as durable as the latest iPad Mini in tumble tests, making it the flawless option for your everyday use.

The good news is that the upgrades won't hike the Fire 7's price tag - we're still talking $49.99 for the 16GB version and $69.99 for the 32GB version, both with special offers.
