Amazon announced the addition of some new content to its Amazon FreeTime Unlimited kids offering (previously known as Kindle FreeTime Unlimited).

The service is available on Fire tablets, Amazon Fire TV, and Kindle e-readers. All in all, FreeTime Unlimited now has over 4,000 "common core aligned" books from National Geographic, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Capstone Press, Lerner Publishing, Child’s World, Cherry Lake, Sleeping Bear Press and Starwalk Kids Media as well as over 400 "age-appropriate" apps and games, which don't include in-app purchasing or advertisements. It also has thousands of movies and TV shows.

Today's announcement includes thousands of titles, including Princess Story Theater, Frozen Freefall, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Roof Top Run, Dora’s Great Big World, Toca Boca’s Toca Cars, Toca Hair Salon Me, Sesame Street’s Monster at the End of This Book, Dr Seuss’ Cat in the Hat, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and over 100 other Oceanhouse media titles.

“We’ve worked hard to bring the best kids content to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. Millions of kids and parents are using FreeTime and we’re thrilled to add thousands of new titles in time for the holidays,” said Nate Glissmeyer, Director of Amazon Kids and Families. “Parents tell us they love the selection in FreeTime Unlimited since it gives kids the freedom to discover and pick their next adventure. And, with new additions from Nickelodeon, Disney, Oceanhouse Media, Sesame Street and more, we can’t wait to hear what parents and kids think.”

“Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited is a great platform for our content—kids can find their favorite Sesame Street characters and instantly access all the educational and fun titles they love in a kid-friendly FreeTime user interface,” said Scott Chambers, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Media at the Sesame Workshop. “We’re excited to bring more content to this platform and looking forward to continuing our work with Amazon.”

Recently, Amazon launched its Fire HD Kids Edition, which comes with a free year of FreeTime Unlimited. This will likely be a popular Christmas gift this year.
