With the back-to-school ritual pretty much back to normal this year, it's time to stock up on school supplies. Whether kids are heading back to elementary school or college, there are all kinds of back-to-school deals worth checking out on Amazon, like discounts on clothing, backpacks and more. Don't forget to seek out deals on some of Amazon's most kid-friendly tech, like the Kindle Kids Edition, Fire HD 10 Kids Tablet and Echo Dot Fourth Generation Kids.

We've assembled a range of family-friendly deals below -- just in time for school season.

Kindle Kids Edition

This purchase includes a 10th generation Kindle, one year of Amazon Kids+ (subscription access to more than 20,000 books, apps and games, videos, songs, Audible books and more), a Kindle cover and a two-year worry-free guarantee (worry free, as in, Amazon will replace it for free if it breaks). This Kindle can also be connected to Audible via Bluetooth headphones or speakers. Using the parent dashboard, you can adjust age filters, add books to the Kindle, set reading goals, view your child's reading progress and more. Save 36%.

Apple AirPods Pro

While a new pair of trendy Apple AirPods Pro earbuds may not be the right back-to-school buy for a kindergartener, a solid pair of noise-cancelling wireless earbuds belongs on every college student's back-to-school list. The 4.8-star-rated Apple AirPods Pro pair effortlessly with Apple iPhones, and delivers up to 4.5 hours of listening time on a single charge. (The included wireless charging case boosts total listening time to 24 hours.)

Apple AirPods Pro are normally priced at $250, but you can get a pair on Amazon right now for $190.
