Amazon FreeTime is Like Netflix for Kids up to 12

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited Devices

Amazon recently announced their FreeTime Unlimited monthly service for kids has added thousands of new videos, educational apps, games, and books while maintaining the same price. FreeTime Unlimited starts at just $2.99 per month for Prime members and $4.99 per month for customers who are not yet Prime members. The catch is this service only works on Amazon devices, so you’ll need a Fire TV or Tablet to access this content.

FreeTime Unlimited previously offered titles primarily for kids ages 3-8 but has now added new content kids ages 9-12, such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Monument Valley, iCarly, Star Trek, and more.

“Today, FreeTime Unlimited offers over 13,000 videos, educational apps, games, and books, plus over 40,000 YouTube videos and websites—for kids from preschool to preteen.”

— said Nate Glissmeyer, Director, Amazon Kids and Families.

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited now offers over 13,000 titles, including:

  • Thousands of hand-curated videos, including Legend of Korra, Gortimer Gibbons, Thunder Birds Are Go, Just Add Magic, iCarly, Star Trek, RL Stein’s The Haunting Hour, Superman the Animated Series, Design Squad, and Big Time Rush.
  • Hundreds of age-appropriate apps and games without any in-app purchasing or advertisements, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Monument Valley, Slugterra, Lightbot Programming Puzzles, Star Wars Rebels, Winx Bloomix Quest, Temple Run: OZ, American Girl, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Monster High, and Ever After High.
  • Thousands of books, including titles like The Witch of Blackbird Pond, The Black Pearl, The Sign of the Beaver, Harry Potter, The Island of the Blue Dolphins, Big Nate, DC Super Heroes, and Scooby Doo.
  • New titles for preschool and younger kids with popular apps like The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out, Big Hero 6, and Disney Junior Appisodes; new books The Polar Express, Sleep Like a Tiger, Tuesday, and Mr. Wuffles; and new videos from Dino Dan, Zoboomafoo, Thomas and Friends, Wishenpoof, and Tumble Leaf.

Families can also discover kid-friendly content using the Amazon FreeTime web browser, which provides kids with controlled access to over 40,000 hand-curated, age-appropriate YouTube videos and websites. All YouTube videos and websites included in the FreeTime web browser are selected and approved by Amazon experts to ensure they are appropriate for kids.

Amazon FreeTime now includes FreeTime Smart Filters to help parents sort through and manage FreeTime content. Using a blend of input from Common Sense Media, Amazon experts, and parents, FreeTime Smart Filters help by recommending age-appropriate videos, educational apps, games, and books for kids to enjoy. Parents can then use FreeTime Smart Filters to adjust the library so that older kids are only seeing the content that’s applicable to them, and parents can be confident younger kids aren’t seeing content deemed too old. FreeTime Smart Filters will be available for 4th and 5th generation Fire tablets, including Fire Kids Edition, via a free, over-the-air software update rolling out starting April 27, 2016.

Amazon FreeTime and FreeTime Unlimited are available exclusively on Fire tablets, including Fire Kids Edition, as well as on Kindle e-readers—learn more about FreeTime Unlimited at www.amazon.com/freetimeunlimited.
