What is the difference? Screen size variations? More apps on one vs. the other? I know the kindle is for books, but it can do other stuff as well, right?

I often have to go to the hospital and doctor's offices which my son is very good at going with me but I would like a kindle fire for the apps for him and he is also 5 (: This would be good for him while waiting with mommy (:

iPads are overpriced, IMO. I have a Le Pan TC 970...same price as a Kindle Fire, but has a bigger 9.7 inch screen like the iPad whereas the Kindle Fire is only 7 inches. It runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo), but works awesome. It only connects to wifi, no 3G...but I'm alright with that since I just drag it around the house with me. I have Kindle for Android on it, too..so theres always that option, which I love. Also, you can get any apps from the Android market, which comes stock in the tablet. It was a good buy for me.

Yes i let my son use it at Dr appts when we are at the bus stop in the mornings. It has interactive books as well and both of my children 5 & 9 love it. The kindle Fire has just about every app android does.

We use the Kindle Fire at school, but only for specific apps with the kids, so I can't say.
