I got our kindle fire for christmas, dh didn't buy any accessories for it.
I kinda wish we had a case with a sturdy stand, I have it on my lap a lot, and a case might give me something more to hold onto.
The fire seems pretty sturdy, my nearly 2yo has dropped it a few times and its fine.
Its not really convienent to type on, I hate touchscreen typing.
I mostly use it for surfing/reading and watching videos on prime.
