The cases are designed in collaboration with Disney and National Geographic, and support the new wireless charging feature.
Announced over a month ago, the newest Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet has a new shape making cases for the previous-generation model unusable.
Third-party producers are slower than usual with launching tailored covers for the new Fire HD 8, so for the time being you can either go for an original Amazon case or a universal sleeve.
Luckily, Amazon has signed a deal with Disney to offer Mickey Mouse themed covers. Two designs are available: No Bad Days, and Mickey Through Time – something worth considering if you are planning to buy the 8-inch Fire tablet to be used by your kids.
Besides Disney, you can also see two National Geographic case covers, one with a parrot and the other one with a turtle.
Themed Fire HD 8 cases offer the same functionality as original Amazon cases, with the support for auto sleep / wake and the front folding across to form a horizontal or vertical stand. What’s important, both cases support wireless charging (HD 8 Plus model only) that’s performed by Wireless Charging Dock by Angreat.
Themed case covers cost $34.99 each, $5 more than standard Amazon fabric covers. The designs are tailored for portrait mode, and I think it’s a missed opportunity, as Amazon made a bold move to go for a landscape-first design, and the newest 8-inch Fire is the first model in the range to offer the full horizontal experience.
I hope to see more themed case covers, and not only for the newest Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet.
Available in two variants: Mickey No Bad Days and Mickey Through Time.

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
