With most children at home due to the persistent coronavirus pandemic, Amazon Prime Video has decided to offer more than 60 free children’s television shows, movies, and songs in India and around the world. This includes characters like Peppa Pig, Inspector Chingum, Kalari Kids, tons of Chhota Bheem and Super Bheem movies, and Amazon originals like The Stinky & Dirty Show, Just Add Magic and The Dangerous Book for Boys. Content will vary by region, Amazon says, due to availability of rights. You work with studios to get more licensed content.
All you need to access free children’s content on Prime Video is an Amazon account. You do not need an active Prime subscription. All free content also works with the new Prime Video profile feature, for those with multiple children at home. Amazon has set up a landing page that shows everything you can see for free. Follow this link. It is clearly divided into categories: preschool, children aged 6 to 11, popular shows and movies, i.e. third-party content, and finally one for rhymes, which are incredibly popular with Indian parents.
Among children’s songs, most, if not all, come from ChuChu TV. In the movies section, beyond the Bheem franchise, you have titles like Kid Krrish, Tales of Siva, Mighty Raju and Snow Queen. Among the TV shows, you have Raju the auto rickshaw, Sherazade The Untold Stories, Guddu the Great, Cat vs Keet and Atchoo. And in the Originals department, you’ll also find Lost in Oz, Niko and the Sword of Light, Little Big Awesome, Danger & Eggs, Costume Quest and Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street.
