Amazon Has a Kid-Friendly Subscription Service That You Probably Didn’t Know About
You get access to thousands of book, movies, TV shows, apps, and games.
There are plenty of entertainment options out there for kids these days—Sesame Street is on HBO Go and there are endless educational iPad and iPhone apps. And as a parent, you want to control what your child watches or reads online. Amazon has a service that makes it easy for you with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited.
Starting at $2.99 a month, you can subscribe to the service which provides unlimited access to 13,000 books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games—all for kids ages 3-12 and from brands like Disney, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, PBS Kids, and Amazon Originals.
The best part is that parents can control what their kids see and know that the service is a safe space. Kids won’t have access to social media or in-app purchases within the platform. Parents can also set time and age limits. You can also download videos, apps, and books for those times when you’ll be without Wi-Fi, like on a road trip or on the plane. The service also provides parents with Discussion Cards to give them ways to talk to their kids about the programs or books they’re watching or reading.

Parents can enroll up to four children on the subscription service, and each child gets his or her own profile.
You can sign up for a one-month free trial here—consider it the gift for your kids that keeps on giving.
