Amazon announced that kids can now enjoy the popular Amazon FreeTime Unlimited service, including books, videos, YouTube videos and websites on Android phones and tablets.
The FreeTime app for Android is free to use and offers similar parental controls that are available with FreeTime on Fire Tablets, including Fire Kids Edition, plus access to over 40,000 YouTube videos and websites that have been hand-selected by the FreeTime team.
For even more content, parents can add the Amazon FreeTime Unlimited service starting at $2.99 per month to gain unlimited access to over 10,000 age-appropriate books and videos.
The award-winning Amazon FreeTime service balances giving kids the freedom of choice and unlimited access to popular content while ensuring parents that what their kids are viewing on their devices is age-appropriate. Parents can hand-select books, videos, apps and games to add to the FreeTime app, and kids can explore over 40,000 age-appropriate YouTube videos and websites that are hand-curated by the FreeTime team.
Parents can also manage screen time limits by content type with innovative features like Learn First, which hides all entertainment content until daily educational goals are met, and Bedtime, which automatically turns off FreeTime at night and keeps it off until the wake-up time parents set—with weekday and weekend settings.
For even more content, parents can add FreeTime Unlimited, the all-in-one subscription service that allows kids to explore over 10,000 age-appropriate books and videos from popular brands like Disney, Nickelodeon, Amazon Studios, PBS Kids, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster. Starting at only $2.99 per month, FreeTime Unlimited offers unlimited access to favorite book and video titles for kids of all ages, including:
- Books: Splat the Cat, Little Blue Truck Leads the Way, Frog and Toad Are Friends, Curious George Goes to the Hospital, Caps for Sale, Inside Out Junior Novel, National Geographic Readers: Mummies, Big Nate: Game On!, Beezus and Ramona, Bridge to Terabithia, Star Wars: Before the Awakening, The Princess Diaries, and many more
- Videos: Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, If You Give A Mouse a Cookie, Wishenpoof!, Fireman Sam: Ultimate Heroes—The Movie, The Gruffalo, Odd Squad: The Movie, Just Add Magic, Happy Feet, LEGO Friends, Pokemon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire, An American Girl Story—Melody 1963: Love Has to Win, Tarzan, and many more
Additionally, Amazon recently introduced new features for Amazon FreeTime with Parent Dashboard and Discussion Cards. Discussion Cards let parents connect with their kids’ digital experience by providing short summaries of the FreeTime content their kids are using, along with sample questions and activities that parents and kids can share in together based on the book, video, educational app or game.
Discussion Cards are found within the Parent Dashboard, a mobile optimized website that also provides daily activity reports to help parents review the digital content their kids are using in FreeTime, to determine how to manage time limits and set educational goals.
