Amazon's Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, For The Kids

Posted: 05 Dec 2012 05:36 AM PST

Amazon has introduced Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, a special bundle available only on the new Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD that brings books, games, educational apps, movies and TV shows—into one easy-to-use service for kids ages 3-8.

It is an optional extension to Kindle FreeTime, a parental control app that offers tools like Time Limits, which helps parents manage their kids' screen time. It will give the kiddies the choice to pick for themselves what to read, watch or play next, with all the usual favourites on hand to while away tablet time; Elmo, Dora, Thomas & Friends, Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear, Lightning McQueen, Curious George and more. For the parent's peace of mind all apps have in-app payments, advertisements and social media removed. And all of the content is already pre-screened for age-appropriateness.

Here's how it works: When a parent signs up for FreeTime Unlimited, thousands of content titles automatically appear in FreeTime, sorted by their kids' age and gender, alongside the titles parents have already approved from their own collection of content. Kids can work away without being dependent on help from mom and dad.

It's priced at $2.99 per month per child or $6.99 for the whole family. Users who are not yet Prime members can sign up and pay a bit more  - $4.99 per child or $9.99 per family. It will be part of a free, over-the-air software update on the new Kindle Fire range that will be automatically delivered in the coming weeks.

Owners of the all-new Kindle's get one month for free.
