    Published: 2017-06-01, by .

    A kid-friendly library, safe web browsing, a launcher, and videos all in one

    • kid-friendly controls and intuitive UI
    • Solid parental control platform
    • A huge catalog of books, videos, and characters
    • Forced short trial subscription
    • Somewhat tedious and laborious registration

    "Curated child books"


    Once you’ve logged in through your Amazon account and started a 30-day free trial, Amazon FreeTime for Kids provides you with a combination of several things: a built-in launcher for kids, a child-friendly and safe web browser, a ton of easy to read and curated books, videos for them to watch, and a whole lot more. To get started, simply add your child’s first name and their birth date. Based on your child’s birthday and gender, Amazon FreeTime will select curated content that’s kid-friendly. You’ll also find a ton of videos from top sponsors, like PBS Kids, Disney, and more.


    Amazon has done nearly a perfect job of providing a sort of all-in-one kid-friendly hub filled with a ton of videos, books, and content, with solid parental controls to keep you in control.


    Yet, while this app sports a ton of contents, you will have to pay $2.99 a month, plus there are a few parental control options that feel like a laborious chore to set-up, like configuring apps your child can use through the launcher.
