For some reason this came in a box labeled as for the HDX, it wasn't though, the correct item was in the packet. Ideal as our 5yr old uses the HD for netflix, reading & games as she can still plug in her headphones or the charger through the flaps which line up through the case to the ports.
Love Otterboxes and great to see them for the Kindle. Looks pretty kid proof too :)

Contrary to the post below, this case fits perfectly the all new kindle fire hd.
I suspect the post below wanted a case for the 2012 kindle fire hd ( still sold in 2013) which has the camera and is 16gb.
This case 100% fits the all new kindle fire hd 8gb 2013 model without camera.
The case is stunning! , makes the kindle look 10 times better ( as do all otterbox cases).
I have otterbox defender for my iPad, so does the mother in law and father in law after seeing mine..... So does both my brothers and now both my step- daughters....you just cannot go wrong, these are the real deal.
My eldest step daughter had a kindle fire (2012 model) and we used your average fold over case for it- it lasted 6 months before the screen cracked and it was useless - I then vowed that from then on we all have otterbox defender for all our tablets, yes they are expensive, but less than half the price of a kindle (or eighth price of an iPad).
You pay for what you get and anyone that has owned an otterbox defender case will tell you they are fantastic.
These cases make your tablet almost bomb proof, they chucked an iPad across the room to the floor in one of these cases on the gadget show and it was good as new and the protection is identical for kindle.
I don't write many reviews on here, but the post below got it wrong and I want to assure people that this case will fit your 2013 new kindle fire hd and protect it like it is the Crown Jewels .
Buy it and never look back ...they genuinely are that good :-).
