When I think back to my childhood I can remember children’s programmes only being on TV at certain times throughout the day. Nowadays there are many TV channels that are dedicated to children’s TV, however that doesn’t mean that they are showing the shows that your child wants to watch at that particular time.
Amazon Prime Instant Video is a great solution to the hundreds of channels to watch but nothing on problem. Along side hit TV shows and movie blockbusters there is also a range of kid’s content.
Amazon is the UK’s largest online video streaming service with more than 15,000 popular movies and TV episodes – including lots family favourite TV shows such as Peppa Pig, Classic Digimon Seasons, 64 Zoo Lane an films such as Tangled and Toy Story
Amazon Prime Instant Video have commissioned some great new kid’s content ready for the summer, including the following three exclusive programmes…
Creative Galaxy (for preschool-aged children)

In this make-along, create-along, interactive art adventure series for preschoolers, characters Arty and Epiphany travel around the galaxy to solve problems with art, inspiring creative thinking through crafts, music and dance.
