Amazon has announced a new content service for young Kindle users called Kindle FreeTime Unlimited. The service is an all-you-can-eat offering built from the ground up specifically for children. The service is available exclusively on the new
Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD
The service brings together multiple content types including books, games, educational apps, movies, and TV shows into a simple and easy-to-use service aimed at children age 3 to 8. The service promises unlimited access to thousands of titles including Amazon exclusive Android apps and games that are all curated for age appropriateness.
The services available to Amazon Prime members for $2.99 per month per child or $6.99 per month for an entire family. The service offers children's entertainment from Andrews McMeel Publishing, Chronicle Books, DC Comics,Disney, HIT Entertainment, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Marvel, Nickelodeon, PBS, Reading Rainbow, Sesame Workshop and more.
Kindle Fire HD 8.9" showing "FreeTime"
Since all the content in the service is curated for age appropriateness, children are free to explore all the content available on their own and choose what they want to read, watch, or play. The service includes some of children's favorite characters including Elmo, Dora, Thomas, Cinderella, curious George, and lots more.
The service offers individual profiles allowing each child in the home to set up their own account and have their own content. None of the apps offered in the service have in-app payments, advertisements, or social media links. That means you won't get any unexpected charges to your account and children won't accidentally click advertisements.
FreeTime Unlimited is available for users who own one of the Kindle Fire tablets via a software update that will be delivered automatically in the coming weeks. After the update is delivered, users will be able to sign up for the service.

Pretty great idea and a decent price. I have two Kindle Fires in the house and for the kid's KF, I am constantly having to type in the admin password to download some worthless free app that will be used for 20 minutes before deleted.
