We’re in the middle of our second week of quarantine, and it’s not looking like it’s going to end any time soon. With that, many companies are stepping up to give families some entertainment and education materials for free or at a very discounted price. Amazon Prime is jumping in to help and just made a bunch of their kids’ shows free to watch. Here’s what you need to know.

Amazon has lifted their paywall and are now offering their Prime kid shows for free. You don’t need a paid Amazon Prime account to access these titles, but you do need to sign up for a free Amazon account. The company has unlocked 40 children shows through Amazon Prime, and another 80 movies through IMDb TV, which is owned by Amazon.

Popular TV shows that parents won’t mind their kids streaming include Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Arthur, and Pete the Cat. The company has created a landing page where people can see what titles are available now for free, and here’s what you can expect on Amazon Prime.
