Amazon launches Kindle subscription service for kids

Kindle FreeTime Unlimited

Personally, I’d never had over my iPad (at least not unsupervised) to a toddler or young child, but Amazon is launching a Kindle Fire subscription services geared toward the 3–8 year olds. Kindle FreeTime Unlimited is a $4.99 subscription service that offers thousands of age-appropriate books, movies, TV shows, games and educational apps. The app also gives parents time-controls for each type of content.

From Robot6:

The service, included as a free trial on every new Kindle Fire, debuts with a library that includes the Disney-released Marvel picture books, Warner Bros. Consumer Products-produced DC Comics apps, Lincoln Peirce’s Big Nate, Bill Amend’s FoxTrot, Mark Tatulli’s Lio, and Graphic Universe’s “Graphic Myths & Legends, Sherlock Holmes and ”Manga Math Mysteries" series. Presumably we’ll see more kids’ comics as the rollout continues.

My daughter, yes. My nephew, no. I think it depends on the kid. Tablets will become some commonplace that it won’t be that big of a deal. Look for the Fisher Price Kindle.
