Finding a device that's the right size for your needs can make you feel like Goldilocks. Smartphone screens are too small for enjoying full-length movies. Laptops are too big to be stored in tight spaces. But a tablet is just right!

If you're in the market for a new tablet or the one you already own could use some accessories, then you have to see these deals on Amazon.com. All of these products are on sale and the customer review ratings are at least four stars, so get them now before they're gone!

LeapFrog Epic

(Note: If you're reading this story on the Komando.com app, click here to see a picture of the product.)

If you're going to get your child a tablet, it might as well be one that helps them learn new things! The LeapFrog Epic is an Android-based seven-inch tablet for children ages 3 to 9 years old. Your child will have access to over 20 kid-friendly Android apps and the LeapSearch browser protects them from inappropriate content on the internet. And as far as protection from accidents goes, the screen is shatter-safe and the edges have bumpers. There are parental controls, too so you can limit your child's playtime. The list price is $139.99 but you can buy it for $79.00.

Fire Tablet

(Note: If you're reading this story on the Komando.com app, click here to see a picture of the product.)

The Fire Tablet is an Amazon device; customers have access to Amazon Underground, which is a library full of free apps. The display is seven inches and there's up to seven hours of battery life. It's available in four colors - pink, blue, black and orange. It even comes with Alexa! The price is $50 but there's a limited time offer for 15 percent off if you buy two. Just use the code FIRE2PACK at checkout.

Psst: Are you getting the most use out of your tablet? There may be some settings and features you're not taking advantage of. Here are five things you didn't know your tablet could do.

Glass Screen Protector

(Note: If you're reading this story on the Komando.com app, click here to see a picture of the product.)

Scratches, fingerprints, dirt; tablet screens have many enemies. This screen protector by amFilm can help save your tablet's screen from the perils of everyday use. It's made specifically to fit the iPad Air, the iPad Air 2, and the iPad Pro, but it will probably work for any tablet with a 9.7-inch display. It comes with wet/dry wipes, dust removal stickers and a user guide. It's normally $29.99, but you can buy it today for only $9.99. (It's in the "Today's Deals" section so you have to buy as soon as possible to take advantage of the savings!)

Tablet Car Mount Holder

 

(Note: If you're reading this story on the Komando.com app, click here to see a picture of the product.)

If you have restless kids that hate long car rides then both of you will love this device! It's the clamp by iKross that attaches tablets to the car's headrest post. So instead of staring at tablets in their lap, they can enjoy movies without the neck strain. It swivels 360 degrees, the height and tilt are adjustable and it's suitable for tablets with 7- to 10.1-inch displays. The regular price is $39.99 but it's on sale right now for only $7.99!

Carrying Case

(Note: If you're reading this story on the Komando.com app, click here to see a picture of the product.)

These are really cute! For kids and kids at heart, Evecase makes these carrying cases for tablets with 7- to 8-inch displays.  In addition to the dinosaur print you see here, you can buy one with a fairy princess print or one with animals. They're also available in several solid colors. These carrying cases are lightweight, water-resistant and have front pockets for more storage. The regular price is $25.99 but you can buy it for $10.99.
