I think many parents are losing the minds with kids wanting something to do ... credit to Apple for this offer.

Helpsters and Snoopy in Space are both excellent programmes. My children have watched them lots already (and re-watched during the lockdown).

As someone who works in the medical field, I want to thank each person who’s trying to help especially those who are making the life of children easier as it is really hard for them to understand what a curfew is. We all need to stand together in these times, I’m no American but we’re all living in the same planet. Albeit, some people have cravings for weird recipes including bats and they need to find alternatives, that we can’t help with as only they know how a bat tastes.

This is a joke. The apple tv shows havent changed since apple launched tv plus. They should have both delivered more content and made some content free by now. This is just a publicity stunt.
There is way more in that kids section than stuff from Apple TV+ - which is btw very reasonable to rent. Sure, doesn’t contain that much stuff, but that’s a well documented issue.

This is about providing some curated options for family / children entertainment - they don’t have to give out presents though.
