Have you heard about the new Kindle Fire HD tablets that are being released on September 14th? You can read all about the new features, prices and what’s available here. I have yet to purchase one, but I am oh so tempted…
Amazon has also introduced something new for both kids and parents called Kindle FreeTime. Here’s a little more information about it:
Why it’s perfect for parents: Kindle FreeTime is a new service, built from the ground up to help give parents peace of mind when it comes to tablet use. Parents can create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games and videos they want to give their kids access to. Kindle FreeTime is free on every Kindle Fire.
And kids too: When kids use Kindle FreeTime, it’s like they have their very own, personalized tablet. The background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design. They only see the titles that they have access to see. The home screen carousel shows their recently viewed titles. And, they can even navigate visually to content based on characters or topics – for example “Cinderella,” “Dinosaurs,” or “Puppies.”
You can also set screen limits and the Kindle Fire is built tough and able to stand up to wear and tear kiddos (heck and adults) seem to put tablets through.
Kindle FreeTime is arriving next month. Tell us, is this a service that appeals to you?
