I just got a Kindle Fire today. Or rather, my 3-year-old did, because she absconded with it within minutes.

She has a delightful ability to one-click books and apps and movies, and that's all well and good when it's free instant video, but I fear she'll start venturing into the paid section soon.

Does anyone know of an app that will block that ability? Or how to turn off one-click maybe?  ;D

Hmmmm. I havent tried an app like that or a setting for this. All I know is if you already linked your card then it will be easy for anyone to purchase books. Unless it requires password.

Have you looked in settings?  There's a section for parental controls.  I don't have it set because I have no need but you might poke around there.

There's also a Free App called Kindle Free time -- that I think you should have automatically.  It lets you set separate logins for you and your kids so that they can only do certain things while they have it.

I use zoodles, it lets you pick what apps you want them to have access to and it also provides age appropriate ages they can play.

Thanks! I'll look into Kindle Free Time. :D
I think it's already on the device. . . . . but it may not come on the basic Fire -- only the HD models.

Free time is on the basic fire if it is the new (Nov 2012) one.  If it is a 2011 model you can not get it.  We upgraded out 2011 fire with the 2012 just to get free time.

On your Kindle fire go to settings and I think parental controls are under security.
Oh and there are many free children's books at amazon.  Some are for the under 5 set.
Or you can turn off wifi while the 3 year old is playing with it.
No internet=no shopping.

I was just looking for answers on this same thing. I don't want my kids buying a bunch of media or in-game features.
