Amazon Touts Kindle FreeTime Unlimited for Greater Family Entertainment

Amazon is impressing its kin of Kindle users today as the online retail giant introduces Kindle FreeTime Unlimited.

This package brings together “all of the types of content kids and parents love—books, games, educational apps, movies and TV shows—into one simple, unlimited, easy-to-use service for kids ages 3-8.”

And some pretty hefty names in children’s entertainment are on board, including Sesame Workshop, Disney, HIT Entertainment, PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Marvel, DC Comics, and more.

The monthly price for the package comes in at $2.99 per child or $6.99 for the whole family.

Amazon says, however, that Prime members get unlimited access to thousands of popular kids titles. Customers who are not yet Prime members can sign up for FreeTime Unlimited for a monthly price of $4.99 per child or $9.99 per family.

“As a parent it’s hard to predict what my daughter is going to enjoy, or which movie she’s going to watch 50 times in a row—so I buy a range of content and hope for the best—but I get it wrong frequently,” says Peter Larsen, Vice President of Amazon Kindle. “FreeTime Unlimited gives kids the freedom to explore age-appropriate content on their own and pick for themselves what they want to watch, play or read next.”
