Enabled by Alexa, FreeTime Unlimited gives parents peace of mind that the content their children are accessing is age-appropriate – for example, kids are able to listen to “over 1,000 appropriate Audible audiobooks”, as well as “play music, hear stories, call approved friends and family, and explore a world of kid-friendly skills”, according to Amazon.
After the year’s free subscription, FreeTime costs $2.99 per month “plus applicable tax”. The subscription renews automatically every month, but you can “cancel any time by visiting the Amazon Parent Dashboard or contacting Customer Service”.
