Do you ever find yourself thinking “If I could just have 10 minutes uninterrupted I could _________” fill in the blank.
I could get dinner done and actually be able to sit down and enjoy it with my family.
I could finish cleaning the kitchen and then be able to play with the kids without dirty dishes haunting me.
I could finish this important email or post then be free for the rest of the evening to spend quality time with my family.
Whatever it is you need those 10 minutes for, I have the answer for how to get them (plus about 20 more!)

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited
I got FreeTime Unlimited for free when I purchased the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet for my son for Christmas last year. We had been using an iPad mini that we got through our mobile phone service but our contract was up and I was going to have to buy it to continue using it. I wasn’t about to spend $300+USD on a tablet for a 5 year old. That’s when I found the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet for SOOO much less and it was BETTER than the iPad mini! It has more storage, more features, more parental control and just overall better (except the camera but a 5 year old doesn’t need a high quality camera).
It came with a free year subscription to FreeTime Unlimited. I didn’t really know what that was but it was already installed and it was free so, cool…I’ll take it. Now that he’s had the tablet for a bit and we’re really starting to use all the features I am totally blown away at how simply A-MA-ZING the FreeTime Unlimited is.
What IS Amazon FreeTime Unlimited?
It’s an Amazon subscription that allows safe screen time for kids. It has everything under the sun. Learning games, books, puzzles, videos, Disney, Disney Jr., Nick Jr., Nick, Cartoon Network, PBS Kids. I could go on for hours, but I won’t lol. Second, you can schedule it so that your child only has access to certain parts at certain time. Like after chores are marked off the to do list. Or you can set it to shut off after a certain time of day or certain time spent using the device.
Why do I need it?
Remember earlier when I asked if you needed 10 minuets of uninterrupted time? Well, safe, worry free screen time for your kids will give you that 10 minuets and however much longer you need! YOU control what your children see and hear. YOU control how long they use the device and when they can use the device. Just set up the controls you want and then hand your kiddies the device without a care in the world. Only want educational games and shows? No worries, you can set that up. Worried about age appropriate content? FreeTime Unlimited has presets for age ranges or you can customize everything down to the T.
What do I need to use it?
You will need an Amazon device such as Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Kindle or an Amazon Tablet. You can also download the app on any Android device. Sorry Apple fans (I’m one too by the way. I LOVE my iPhone) Amazon FreeTime does not work with apple products. But with the awesome price of Amazon devices you can totally afford to get one for your kiddos. We happen to have 2 Fire TV Sticks, 1 Fire TV and 1 Fire Tablet. Can you tell we’re proud supporters of Amazon even though they don’t share our love for Apple?
I’ve never seen anything like this and I had the Nabi for a while too. What can I say, I tend to buy my kid all the tech stuff. But that’s neither here nor there. After having all 3 of these top rated kids tablets I can say, from experience, the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is leaps and bounds better than anything else out that and that is due to the FreeTime Unlimited subscription. And do you want to know the best part about all of this??? You can try it for FREE too! Click here to start your FREE trial now. And when your trial is up it’s still only $2.99/month. There’s no reason not to get this.
