Staples Helps You Appreciate Your Back-to-School 'Firsts!' Kindle Fire HD (with WiFi) #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Wouldn't Winning a Kindle Fire HD with Wi-Fi Would be a Great Back to School First?!

The Kindle Fire HD with Wi-Fi
Sold at Staples!

I'm surprised to see some schools are already back in session. We don't go back for another (3) weeks. That being said, we're getting ready now, and back to school shopping always makes me reminiscent of when I would go shopping with my mom as a kid. I remember my first fake rabbit fur coat (hey, those were all the rage and I was thrilled to get mine!). I remember my first Trapper Keeper: Everyone had to have one. And I remember my first set of football pencils (with the NFL team names and helmets displayed on them). Those were really cool, and even if you didn't like football, you liked those pencils!


Now that I'm the mom, there are Back to School Firsts I get to enjoy with my kids. In my son's Kindergarten class last year, almost everyone had a Tablet. I was surprised! My son had one too, but only because it was gifted to him the year before by a family friend. I thought he was too young for it. Turns out, he was not. The Kindle Fire HD is perfect for his age, to reiterate in a fun way, lessons learned (or to be learned) from Math, Spelling, and his Dolch Word Lists, to name a few.

There are so many useful features on the Kindle Fire HD Fire (with WiFi)
You can download books, and add music.
There is a clock and a calender. ..and really so much more!

There are also features for the big kids, like my teen...such as the ability to download books, add music to the cloud player (or transfer music via USB), upload pictures, stream HD movies, check e-mail, and there is a built in clock ad calendar too. Those are but a few of the many features available on the Kindle Fire HD with Wi-Fi. And if your child (grade school all the way through college) doesn't have one, this could be the perfect back-to-school 'first!'

Create Your Own Personalized Learning Environment with the Kindle HD Fire.
It also has optional password protection.

Set-up is easy...you just take your new Kindle out of the package, give it an initial charge as directed, and then start setting it up to your own preferences for school (or home, if you're keeping it for yourself ;) ). There are parental controls aplenty, so if you're sending a younger child out, you can do so with peace of mind. There is also password protection so only those who know it (the password) can access the device.

Parental Control Options are Available. I used one for the ability to download apps.

You can also put a password requirement on any download, so the kids can't go crazy with the game apps Not that either of my two lovelies would ever attempt to do such a thing.

7" HD Touchscreen has very clear, nice graphics!

And speaking of games...the graphics on the Kindle Fire HD with Wi-Fi are very clear, very colorful, and very nice. We've downloaded several game apps, and all of them are just gorgeous to view. I love the Angry Birds games, so we snagged a couple of those, my kids know I love Pac Man, so they put that one on there, and Minecraft Lovers can let out a little whoop because there is a Minecraft Pocket Edition in the app store, and now it's on our new Kindle too (my son and husband love that game).

So...for your back to school first for your kids this year, why not get them a  Kindle Fire HD with Wi-Fi from Staples? The learning opportunities are endless, the quality of the device is the best of the best, and the price is right.

You can get this Kindle Fire HD with WiFi, online. You can also purchase it at your local Staples store.


I also thought it worth mentioning that Staples has a Back to School 110% Price Match Guarantee. As a parent, that is something I appreciate.

Enjoy your time and experiences shopping with your kids for back-to-school. And be sure to embrace all of those wonderful firsts you're bound to come across this year (and every year).

One lucky winner gets a Kindle Fire HD with WiFi to call their own. US entrants only.

My back to school first that I do with my kids is making it a celebration and there is always a special dinner and a little something waiting at the end of the school day.

Kendra from Headband for Today said...

I loved new school supplies too. Btw, did you know Trapper Keepers are back?!

I'm not sure about a Kindle for school but for mommy in the carpool line would be great!

peg42 said...

One of the back to school firsts that I remember is the first day of school that my oldest son went too and how the day started out with him going onto the school bus for the first time. He was so scared and had tears coming down his face. When he came home later, he was then excited.

Shell said...

I remember sending my oldest to his first day of school! Big milestone! The Kindle Fire looks like it has a lot of great features!

mkjmc said...

The first day i dressed them in their school uniforms with backpacks and lunch boxes and waited for the bus

Our kids have tablets too and love them. Great back to school tools! Amber N

Leela said...

I remember the first day of being nervous.

Rochkirstin Santos said...

It's great that more students now are not anymore carrying heavy back packs as they have a kindle fire or any tablet containing every content digitized. The Kindle Fire HK with WiFi is very easy to use.

HS said...

I remember taking the pictures of first day to school.

Ben Butler said...

Heck yeah! My first Trapper Keeper had Transformers on it. I loved that thing! I kept even after I'd outgrown the whole Trapper Keeper thing.

renee from what mommies need said...

I always take pictures of my kids on their first day of school and their back pack choices! We got my older son a kindle for Christmas last year and he loves it!

Christie C said...

I would love to win one. I think I'm the last person without a Kindle lol

debdenny said...

Kids do need to lose real heavy backpacks. I got a Kindle for my granddaughter and hope this helps.

I remember crying my first day in kindergarden when my mom left, 15 minutes later I was playing and happy.

Laura Grace Andry said...

My son is starting school this fall for the first time. He is going into kindergarten and so I wanted his first back to school shopping trip to be memorable and special. I took him out by himself {without his siblings} and we went shopping. He picked out everything on his list and then some. His favorite find was a storm trooper lunchbox! My baby bow is big enough for his first lunchbox! - I may cry.

Lavende L. said...

Great! For some reason that new pair of shoes for the first day was always such a big deal

Alice Chase said...

First day of school was always special with new shoes, backpacks & new pencils!

Jenna MOMenvy said...

Wow! My daughter would LOVE a Kindle! Now that she can read, she can put her favorite books on there!

Kristin said...

Hard to believe its back to schoola lready. Great giveaway!

Kindle Fire would really help in the school works. I'm sure the winner of the giveaway would really have an easier time at school with the kindle.

I remember the first day of school as being exciting to me. The first day of school meant a chance to make new friends and see ones I had known for years.

Growing Up Madison said...

I don't usually shop at Staples since I find their prices are usually higher than Target and Walmart but they usually have that one thing I may be missing that others don't have.

Paula Schuck said...

I didn;t actually know they price matched at Staples. That's awesome. I was there just two days ago for ink cartridges and Crayola items.

Mandi said...

We go to Staples probably TOO much LOL - either my husband is going for work, or I am going for business supplies. We easily found our school supplies there and got in and out - which I loved!

Lady Lilith said...

My girls also have off for 3 more weeks. Since I was little, Staples was the place to shop.

Dallas Socials said...

Staples is my favorite place to shop for school and office supplies. Great review!

Erica Buteau said...

I remember being fingerprinted in the first grade. I don't know why that experience stuck with me but it sure did. I'm so split on back to school this year - not read, so ready! Sometimes both in the same day!

clc408 said...

I remember getting new shoes at the start of each school year. It was fun shopping with my mom and sister.

clc408 said...

I like that you can order online and pick up in two hours at Staples.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

What a great sounding store - so good to be able to pick up a lot of what you need in one place :) x

Tracey said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I really want a Kindle Fire.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I haven't used my Kindle since Jason bought me an iPad for Christmas (partially since I lost the cord that charges it), but I have been thinking of pulling it back out again lately. I had some fun apps on there I'd like to reacquaint myself with. Great giveaway!

Carly said...

We have a Staples that just opened about 2 years ago, but I always forget it's there. This Kindle Fire HD looks awesome! I have the first generation Kindle Fire but have been wanting to upgrade.

April said...

I remember we moved and I had to go to a new school and couldn't find my back pack or any of my supplies. I had to take a little draw string back and a few things I found in the junk drawer

Terra Heck said...

I remember when I first got in trouble at school. My teacher had my mom come in for a conference because I constantly fidgeted with my barettes and hair accessories in 3rd grade. I had to then go the rest of the year without anything in my hair. Thanks.

I remember the first time I took My son to Preschool. I was so scared for him he was very very shy. I was so freaked out that I stayed in my car in the parking lot the entire 3 1/2 hours. But when I went in to get him he ran up to me gave me a big hug and said "Mommy I love school!" It was such a sweet moment. I will never forget it.

I remember hating to go back to school shopping. I was a chubby little girl in elementary school. My mom used to re-hem her skirts to fit me so I would have something to wear. (this was in the 50s when little girls wore dresses to school)

BlackAsphodel said...

On my first day at school (when we were just supposed to meet our teacher and classmates, no actual teaching took place) I was so nervous, the first place we had to visit was the restroom. :p

Oooh, I remember attending our kindergarten orientation with our first child. They read "The Kissing Hand" and I lost it, hahaha!!! I cried, I promised myself I wouldn't, and I did. Fortunately, my daughter was braver than I was and managed her first days of school like a pro.

Megan said...

Visted the Staples site and I love that one doesn't have to pay shipping when signed up for their rewards program. We find that such programs (Amazon Prime, for example) that feature is a really saver for us.

tute-bot said...

I remember getting really excited about getting new school supplies every year. One year in particular I got a Trapper Keeper (red) and I thought I was in heaven. I wonder if they still make Trapper Keepers.

Minta's Creations said...

I remember when my son went to his first day in Kindergarten and he just got up out of his seat got out of the car and waved goodbye no hugs or kisses I was heartbroken I wanted to cuddle him and tell him I'm going to miss him. But he just waved and said don't worry mommy I'm a big boy!

Nana said...

Being raised by a single dad, as the only girl in the family, back to school shopping with me I knew he dreaded *he'd break out in a cold sweat* lol I learned to mix n match guy items with girlie pieces ... it was creative and expressive and I rocked that look! Years later he asked me "did you do that so I wouldn't have to help in the girls section?" Yup daddy I did! The look was my own and it was great!
When my kids began school I.let em do their thing *within reason* lol and I've got some pretty awesome adult kids who have passed on that back to school vibe to their kids.

Maria Dollar said...

I remember always being so excited, yet so nervous the day before school started!

^^^ I have to say, I did the same thing as Nikolas did up there one time. I started my kids on the wrong start date and the missed the first day of school. lol

Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom said...

I remember when my son started school, and all of us parents were nervously watching them walking in the classroom, then peeking in. The teacher had to shut the door and told us all that they will be fine, and will be done in a few hours :)

Lindsey said...

I remember loving all the fresh school supplies when school first starts!

Christine Jessamine said...

my kids are not in school just yet so for me the most memorable was high school. very nerve racking for the first day

Kelly Tupick said...

I remember going to my first day of school in the 2nd grade and walking into the classroom. As i started going in, the teacher from across the hall grabbed me and said you are going into the wrong class room. I said i was not and she said karen, strop playing games with me and come with me. I told her that i was not karen. She proceeded to bring me to her classroom and as we walked in, her face dropped as she saw my twin sister karen already sitting in her seat. From that point on, i knew my twin and i could have fun with this.

I would love to read in bed with a kindle instead of sitting on a hard chair at my computer! Staples was always my go to place for office supplies back when I had my bookkeeping service!

That would be awesome to win, and who doesn't love new office/school supplies? My niece went back to school last week, but kids here don't return until after Labor Day (tourism is much more important than education, you know :-? ).

I remember being happy that the first day of school was a 1/2 day and happy my best friend was in the same class.

My son's first day of school was so bittersweet. He brought home his first (of many) art work.

My son started football this year. It's the first time he's been in a full contact sport and I'm one of those protective moms so it's hard for me to watch other players hit him as hard as they do.
