Amazon is bringing two mobile games to its subscription-based entertainment platform for kids. Known as Amazon Kids+the $2.99 per month service has served as a sort of one stop shop for kid-friendly books, TV shows, movies, games, and more. the first game, Super Spy Ryan is a multiplayer game based on the children’s TV show Ryan’s World† It is available today in both the Google Play and Apple app stores in the US, UK and Ireland. The title will be available in Canada, Germany and Japan later this year, but Amazon has not specified a release date.
Another mobile game, Do, Re & Mi, is a musical educational game designed for kindergarten. The show is based on the Amazon Kids+ show by the same name, starring Kristen Bell and Jackie Tohn. That game will be available soon for iOS in the US, UK, Canada and Ireland.
Kids can play both games on their mobile phone or Amazon Fire tablet. These are the first mobile games available on the Kids+ service, with more to follow soon.
“We are always looking to bring joy and fun to the homes and lives of millions of families. That’s why two years ago we started looking at how we could reach even more children and bring the magic and thoughtfulness of original Amazon Kids+ content to mobile phones,” said Natasha Lipovac, global head of the Amazon Kids+ content division.
If you’ve ever bought a Kindle Kids e-reader for your child, you’re probably already familiar with Amazon Kids+ (the devices come with a free one-year subscription to the service). Amazon has made serious efforts in recent years to corner the children’s market. Given the sheer number of parents who are Prime subscribers, this makes sense. Last month, the company released Amazon Glow, a kid-friendly video conferencing tablet that also includes games. We’ll likely see a lot more kid-oriented content from Amazon in the future, designed to work across all of its various devices.
