Amazon FreeTime brings together books, videos, games, and educational apps that kids and parents love. Our best-in-class parental controls and age-appropriate content provide peace of mind for parents. Thousands of the most popular titles create a world of fun for kids. We have gained critical acclaim and won the prestigious KAPi award for best hardware and service at CES. Our products have built a loyal customer base, and we are constantly innovating to create the best kids products around.
