Fire TV Stick Lite With Alexa Voice Remote Lite
For its low, low cost, there are few streaming devices that pack a bigger punch than the Fire TV Stick Lite, which boasts an insane number of apps, including all the major streamers like Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+, HBO Max, and more. And then there are all the free streaming services like Pluto TV, IMDb TV, and Plex, who all offer tens of thousands of movies, TV shows, and other content.
This model of the lightning fast Fire TV Stick Lite comes equipped with the Alexa Voice Remote Lite, which allows you to search and launch all sorts of content, eliminating all those button presses and misspellings while you’re trying to watch one of the best movies on Amazon Prime. And while the device’s price is always impressive, it’s especially so during Prime Day 2021.
Fire 7 Kids Tablet, 7-Inch Display, 16GB, Blue Kid-Proof Case
If you are in the market for a tablet for you kids without having to spend an arm and a leg (and rightfully so), there is no better option than the Fire 7 Kids Tablet. We bought one of the older models for my daughter a few years ago and it is still going strong thanks to easy-to-use functionality and oh so important kid-proof case (which comes in handy during those toddler tantrums). Also included with this version of the Fire Kids Tablet is a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, which gives you access to 20,000 apps, games, books, videos, and educational content from a number of content creators.
Perfect for road trips, much-needed downtime, or entertainment for kids of all ages in your family (yes, even the parents), the Fire 7 Kids Tablet is a well-rounded, and easy-to-afford device. Also, it’s a great way to check out all the great family-friendly movies and shows on Amazon Prime.
Fire HD 8 Tablet, 8-Inch Display, 32GB
Since being introduced in 2011, the Amazon Fire Tablet has become one of the biggest names in its field, and the Fire HD 8 Tablet with its 8-inch display is a testament of the device’s durability and functionality. Loaded with 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot that gives you up to 1TB of space, 2GB of ram, and a 12-hour battery life, there’s a lot to love about this well-rounded and well-designed tablet. Watch the best movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, Disney+, and more without worrying about load times or buffering issues thanks to Fire HD 8’s dual-band wifi technology.
And just like other Amazon devices, the Fire HD 8 Tablet offers hands-free Alexa support, though you can turn the voice-activated assistant on and off with a switch on the device itself.
Kindle Paperwhite 8GB
There are e-readers and then there is the Kindle Paperwhite. For years now, Amazon’s durable and affordable device has been the go-to for avid readers who want to have one, two, or 10 books to read on vacation without carrying an additional bag just for your hardcovers. And now, the Kindle has gotten even better with this waterproof and expanded model that also allows you to pair bluetooth headphones or speakers to enjoy Audible audiobooks. Combine that with the adjustable light, glare-proof screen, and battery that lasts not hours, not days, but weeks, and you can’t go wrong.
My Kindle has come in handy time and time again from backpacking across Europe on my honeymoon or sitting next to the pool on vacation. Maybe it’s time to upgrade now that the e-reader is affordable as ever on Prime Day 2021.
Sony Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones
Whether you’re going back to the office, still working in a crowded house in need of some peace and quiet, or embarking upon a trip and want to wash out the sounds of the road (or air), the Sony wireless bluetooth noise cancelling headphones are the way to go. Equipped with smart noise cancellation technology, these lightweight yet durable headphones boost the sound of your favorite albums and movies while on the run or on the couch. Compatible with smart phones and other bluetooth-equipped devices, these headphones will give you up to 35 hours of battery life on a full-charge, which is never a bad thing.
The Lord Of The Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended And Theatrical) 4K + Digital
Chances are you’ve seen The Lord of the Rings countless times since Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s landmark fantasy trilogy started in 2001, but have you watched the Battle of Helm’s Deep, walked into Mordor, or the Battle of the Pelennor Fields in stunning 4K quality? This complete box set featuring all three movies (both theatrical and extended versions) and a plethora of bonus features has everything you would ever want and more.
The Office: The Complete Series
If you were a longtime Netflix subscriber who didn’t make the transition over to Peacock once the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company Scranton Branch was transferred to the streaming service at the start of 2021, you could always pick up The Office complete series DVD boxset to prevent anything like that from happening again. With all nine seasons (201 episodes) with more bonus features than you could ever imagine, and more, this collection is a must.
Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Complete Series
Did you miss Avatar: The Last Airbender the first time it aired and don’t want to start the animated cult classic series halfway through on reruns? Well, check out this complete series box set featuring all 61 episodes, a large selection of documentaries, behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and crew, commentary tracks, and original, uncut versions of several episodes.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day Blu-Ray
Every movie collection should feature at least one copy of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and this Blu-ray version of James Cameron’s 1991 summer blockbuster is the perfect option (this was actually the first Blu-ray I purchased years ago). And even though the movie was released 30 years ago, its story, action, and out-of-this-world visuals look as good as ever, especially in crystal clear high-definition.

This new spin on the classic whodunit includes a nice Hogwarts touch in the form of a changing gameboard which will keep everyone on their toes as the mystery unfolds.

This massive set has never been the cheapest option out there, but it’s a completely different story during Prime Day 2021 with a massive steal compared to its list price.
Toshiba 43-Inch Smart HD TV With Fire TV
Toshiba has always been one of the most dependable brands when it comes to quality TV sets, and this 43-inch smart HD TV is no exception, even before you dive into all the features at your fingertips with the Fire TV functionality included. Speaking of the Fire TV, the built-in streaming device means you don’t have to worry about any unsightly wires or extra pieces of equipment taking up space wherever you place this TV while still giving you access to all the latest and greatest streaming services.
The perfect size for a home office, bedroom, or your kid’s playroom, this sturdy yet lightweight TV comes with everything you’d want and more.
Echo (4th Generation)
It seems like there are more smart speakers today than ever before, but few compare to the usability, durability, and style of the Amazon Echo. This 4th generation model of the classic speaker is much more than a way to listen to your favorite music or podcasts, but instead is a souped-up hub for your house that can handle pretty much anything you throw at it. From placing Amazon orders to adding events and appointments to your family calendar, this speaker and its Alexa functionality makes life a lot easier.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition (PS5)
Released in the fall of 2020, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales quickly became not only one of the best PlayStation 5 launch titles but also one of the best games of the year. Similar to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man, this game has a remarkable, well-rounded story, loads of side missions and challenges, and some of the most fluid and addictive gameplay you’ll find in modern gaming. Also, this version of the game also includes the PlayStation 5 remaster of its predecessor, giving you yet another excuse to play the modern classic.
There are a few things to remember with these deals: first, they will be updated throughout the duration of the Prime Day 2021 two-day event; and secondly, they are exclusively available for Amazon Prime members. But don’t worry, signing up for Amazon Prime has never been easier.

Your Daily Blend of Entertainment News
Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
