1. What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

Teen Titans. My 7 year old and 12 year old love this show it's funny and quite gross in places!

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

Teen titans, Kung fu panda, penguins of Madagascar, King julien, Lego ninjago, and the Disney and Pixar films. They just laugh all the time whilst watching these shows.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

I love that there is so much quality content and that you can also buy content and download it

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

Quality of Content, ease of watching, the exclusive content

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

King fu panda, penguins of Madagascar and King julien are all Amazon exclusives that my kids (and me!) love. They are so funny and the quality of the writing and voice talent is excellent.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

Very. I use Amazon A LOT and the free 1 day delivery is excellent. Add to that the video and music and it's amazing value. My only criticism is that you have to pay the £79 in one go. Perhaps a monthly fee could be introduced?

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

We (me, DH, 9yo DD1 and 6yo DD2) have become addicted to Just Add Magic. Really engaging and nice programme. A true box set for kids that is interesting enough for parents to watch too.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazon Prime Video and why?

They like Just Add Magic, other kids shows and some of the films.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

The shows are a bit different, can watch when and where you want. Good range of TV shows and films. No ads.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

As above. We are also looking forward to the Clarkson, May and Hammond car show when that is available.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

Just Add Magic is a huge hit. Taps into the Harry Potter obsession but with a more modern twist. Nice length episodes. Well acted. Engaging storyline and characters.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

We really like Amazon Prime. We originally started it for the music, then realised that it was perfect for DD1 as well (she wanted a music player
and a Kindle Fire was a much more cost-effective option than an ipod). We have watched a few films and TV programmes on TV but also on tablets - it is nice to be able to download things and watch them offline, for example when travelling or on holiday. We also use Prime delivery if we need things urgently, and like the fact that you can have normal delivery and then get a credit that we can use for music or Kindle books.

One thing I don't like is that music can disappear from playlists!

Spockster Tue 28-Jun-16 11:13:23

I watched a move on Saturday night with my 10 year old DD2. We'd been looking for a romcom (!) suitable for her age group, but ended up watching Man Up which is a 15, but was fine.
We watch probably 1 movie a week on Prime, and like the fact there is a different selection to Sky.
Previous to that I watched The Big Lie with DD1 (13) and DP. It had been recommended by family, but DD1 and DP found it rather dull.
We paid for prime as many people do, by accident when the free trial ended, but against my better judgement we order quite a lot of stuff so the free delivery is useful. Movies are a very nice bonus.
My kids are a bit too old for the kids' tv on prime.

Vajazzler Tue 28-Jun-16 11:15:12

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
We watched lego programmes mainly. Their favourite is Ninjago and I like watching them to learn about the things they're interested in.#

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
They love the different types of lego programmes so that they can reenact them with their own lego.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
Its always available!

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family? Lots of choice that appeals to different ages that can be watched on different devices.
5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them? We didn't watch any of those.
6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
It represents very good value for money and is a must have in our household.

Quills Tue 28-Jun-16 11:24:09

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

The Secret Garden movie. I loved reliving a film I loved when I was DD1's age, and she really enjoyed sitting down with me to watch it.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

There's so much for them to enjoy that it's hard to narrow it down! Both DDs particularly enjoy the My Little Pony series, which Prime have a lot of, and it's good that there's so much choice as on a rainy day we can always find something to watch. I like how whilst there's a lot of new and modern shows/movies, there's also plenty of options like Trap Door from when DH and I were little.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

How easy it is to access and use - we watch primarily through the PS4 on the television, but DD1 can manage to work it on my Fire tablet and on the laptop when she's allowed.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

The great range of family friendly movies and series, as well as new US shows for me and DH to watch such as Arrow, Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead. It's a definite bonus that the shows are ad-free!

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

DD1 absolutely loves Just Add Magic and is keeping her fingers crossed for series 2! We've also watched Tumbleleaf with DD2, and DD2 really likes Team Umizoomi.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

I find Amazon Prime to be really good value and we get a lot of use out of it. I often stream music through the player when I'm working, and for me the ability to order and know it will arrive the next day is very useful. I also use the Amazon Pantry service which I would definitely recommend.

glasgowlass Tue 28-Jun-16 11:30:11

Marking place to find thread & fill in survey later. Best of luck to all.

Doubtfuldaphne Tue 28-Jun-16 11:34:42

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

We watched a lot of Peppa Pig. My dd loved us all sitting together and she laughed so much at it.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
They love the kids films, peppa pig and morph especially.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

I love that it's updated regularly and has loads of choice for all ages

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

It has a better variety of programmes and films to watch than other streaming services

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?
My dd went through a big Umizoomi phase and watched them all the time. I like that it's educational aswell as entertaining. I loved introducing my children to the joy that is trap door.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

I use Amazon a lot and I love that it offers next day delivery and even sunday delivery which has been so useful in the past. Having the video on top of this is like an extra bonus, which is well used by all the family. It's a fantastic service.

TormundGiantsbabe Tue 28-Jun-16 11:37:07

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

The Secret Garden. This was one of my favourite films as a child so it was good to see an older kids film that I could share with my children.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

Aside from endless Peppa Pig, my children like to watch Scooby Doo and the Minions/Despicable Me films on Amazon prime.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

I like that the kids section is separate from the other content and it is usually easy to find things using the search feature.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

The chance to see new films and tv shows.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

I have watched Just Add Magic with my children, my son is 5 and it didn't grab his attention but it reminded me of shows I used to watch as a child such as Sabrina the Teenage Witch, so I think it would definitely appeal to my daughter once she is older.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

I use amazon prime a lot to watch tv, download books, stream music and for next day delivery. It is good value - although I would like to be able to access more books as part of my prime membership.

Peanuts79 Tue 28-Jun-16 11:41:06

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

We went glamping this weekend and during one of the torrential rain and thunder storms we watched Tad the Explorer. We had down-loaded it before leaving 'just in case' and have never been so pleased. The characters are well developed and animated superbly, the grown-ups loved the homage to Indiana Jones.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

I think a lot of their enjoyment from Amazon Prime comes from the choice and being able to see a picture for each film, programme - they are so visual and will be drawn in by the icon alone. My DD (8) is enjoying Tom and Jerry at the moment, and my DS (6) The Lego Movie. The choice really is quite staggering.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

How accessible it is and the range of offerings for all the family. We will often stream films on to the TV and the picture quality is brilliant. I know it's not, but in my mind it's free. We use Prime to much in our house for next day delivery that this really is the icing on the cake.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

A few months ago I deleted it off the iPad to make more room, unsure if it would be missed by the kids. I soon found out that this was the one app they definitely wanted to keep! I like the fact there are no adverts, it is user-friendly, down-loads can be watched off-line for 48 hours once started and the selection beats a lot of it's competitors.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

We've just found Just Add Magic and are hooked! From a parents perspective it is reassuring that there are decent role models from the main characters unlike some tween shows which show back-chatting and a bit of attitude. A lot more viewing of this to come I'm sure.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

I'm not sure what I'd do without my Prime membership - first world problem I know, but being a working mum and pretty disorganised this really has been my saving grace! The costume for school I've left to the last minute, party at the weekend I have no present for.... I'm also big on reading reviews and this allows me to make what I believe to be a considered choice and benefit from quick delivery. The option of leaving in a safe place is also invaluable.

regularbutpanickingabit Tue 28-Jun-16 11:44:30

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
Peppa Pig! A huge favourite with the littlest in this house, and the most tolerated little kid programme for the bigger kids. It's great to have so many series available on Prime and on Demand.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
So much - we have discovered lots of films, both old and new, that they wouldn't have watched normally. They like Just Add Magic and some of the other exclusives but also love being able to download apps to watch BBC/ITV/Channel 5 etc. Our favourite series was the Amazing Race - Please please please bring back any of the 26 series again soon!
My son is eagerly waiting for the the new alternative Top Gear.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
We can't have sky or virgin in this house for various irritating reasons and so this is our only access to TV beyond free view. We love the fact there are so many programmes, box sets and films that we can all watch together and we can actually plan when to watch them. The Watch List is a massive help!

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
All of the above, and the fact we can watch it on various devices.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?
Just Add Magic is a big favourite.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
It has become essential! I was cross when the price increased so much but now we use all the elements, I love it. The free next day delivery is brilliant for forgotten birthday presents, essential household and baby items and last-minute dressing up! The only thing I would like is for it to be easier to search for programmes and films via the firestick. I have to go on line to do that which is a pain.

ClockBusCanada Tue 28-Jun-16 11:56:03

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
We watched some Ben and Holly this morning on "the big Kindle telly" as it's known in our house, before leaving for school.
2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
Everything! We all have our own Kindles and we are set up for Prime Video via our TV as well. Favourite TV series we would have watched previously on terrestrial TV or Sky with adverts we now only tend to watch via Amazon Prime. Also the original content is pretty good, and we use the TV interface to access YouTube etc as well.
3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
So much cheaper than other alternatives, especially when you factor in all the other Prime benefits. Also the downloads are great for long car journeys and weekends away etc.
4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
Really easy to use, great selection, always something new to watch.
5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?
Tumbleleaf is a big favourite at the moment. My DD (5) likes the problem-solving nature of the episodes, and I like the fact that it is a quite gentle, calm programme and the animation is beautiful. She is also a fan of Wishenpoof! and was really pleased when more episodes were released after watching the pilot quite a few times before.
6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
At the moment, Amazon Prime Video is our main source of entertainment as we've given up on other TV providers due to the expense and poor quality of programming/range/service. So that's pretty important. Prime Music I can't get to work consistently on my Kindle or I would use that a lot more for things to listen to in the car. I always get the free monthly book, and when I have a bit more time on my hands for reading, I subscribe to the Kindle Library/Unlimited package. I try to support local shops where I can for physical products but when I need something in a hurry that I can't easily source locally, I find the next day delivery is really helpful and I like being able to use the safe place option as the whole household tends to be out from 7.30 to 6.30ish every weekend and quite often out and about on weekends, too.

HeadDreamer Tue 28-Jun-16 11:59:00

1. What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
Wish and poof (or however you spell that). I didn't like it but my 5yo loves it. But she likes mermaids and magic.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
She likes on demand television but she's very fickle. On Amazon prime, there are wish and poof, ben and holly, peppa pig. There were some disney movies too like Tangled, Frozen, Brave etc.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
It's on demand. So it's avaiable when you want to watch tv.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
I'ts part of prime. To be honest, the user interface is much worse than netflix. Netflix has a kids profile so my DD uses that. And also it doesn't show videos that I have to still pay for.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?
She's seen all of them I think but prefers wishenpoof. She just likes princessy stuff.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
I got Prime video because of prime delivery. It's good to have next day delivery and also no minimum delivery value. I order so much from Amazon.

PaulineFowlersGrowler Tue 28-Jun-16 12:00:53

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

Yo Gabba gabba, i absolutely love it (as much as the kids, if not more!). Its cooler than other kids programs and some of my favourite bands have been on there!

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

The youngest love yo gabba gabba and room on the broom (they are 18 months old so they can't tell me why!), the older kids love teen titans go because its really funny and weird.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

It has programs that we can't watch on netflix, iplayer etc.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
Its easy to use, it has something for everyone and its free with our prime membership!

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

My eldest daughter really enjoys 'just add magic', I've watched it with her and its pretty good. She loves the magic and mystery, and the girls are her age.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

VERY important. I struggle to get to the shops so I rely on amazon prime for essential everyday items as well as gifts. I love the next day delivery, perfect for last minute emergencies.

ChutesTooNarrow Tue 28-Jun-16 12:02:17

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
teen titans. It's fairly amusing.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
younger dc (3) doesn't watch anything on it. Older dc (6) is very happy with superhero programmes - justice league, batman, teen titans.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
i am happy it caters for my older dc tastes. I don't like that there is no separate kids profile so has to be supervised very closely. I don't like that free and paid for content is together.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
well we don't have a choice about receiving the videos if we want prime for our deliveries. I wouldn't choose to buy it separately.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?
we have not watched any of the original kids content

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
prime membership for deliveries is brilliant and we will keep it provided the costs don't rise too much. We are not fussed about the inclusion of prime video.

CopperPan Tue 28-Jun-16 12:09:59

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

We liked watching Bill (the film). Great comedy and lots of fun.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

They like films like Tad and Two by Two. There is a great range of animated films.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
It's really easy to use and there's always something good to watch.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
There's a wide range of film and TV for different age ranges.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

They like Gortimer Gibbons and Just Add Magic. It is great entertainment for older kids.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

It's handy when I've left it too late to order for birthdays, although usually I manage to plan ahead. We're in London so we don't struggle with getting access to shops, but sometimes I'm just lazy and it's easier to have something brought to my door!

sleepyhead Tue 28-Jun-16 12:11:53

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

We watched SpongeBob SquarePants. Ds1 thinks it's hilarious, ds2 doesn't really know what's going on I suspect likes how colourful and manic it is, and I like that it keeps them occupied for half an hour (and I actually find it quite funny too blush).

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

They mainly watch several episodes of a cartoon series back to back - for ds2 it's mainly things he knows already from Cbeebies or Milkshake, eg Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam, Team Umizoomi. Ds1 watches quite a bit of Anime and cartoon classics such as Scooby Doo.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

It's easy to view on various devices (although it's annoying that we can't get it through the Chromecast - we use the Playstation instead). We're a one tv family so it's good that members of the family can watch different things at the same time.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

Easy to search for content, easy to access content. I can see what the kids have watched & there are no ads - I actually get a shock at how many ads they're exposed to if we watch NickJr or Milkshake now.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

They've not been interested in the Amazon Kids' Originals shows so far.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

I have my Prime membership primarily for the free and quick delivery of Amazon purchases. We've had Prime Video for about 8 months now and will weigh up whether we want to keep it or not when our subscription is up for renewal. We also have Netflix which we use a lot and which is accessible via the Chromecast. We probably can't justify getting both and are 70/30 in favour of keeping Netflix at the moment.

One annoying thing about Amazon video is that the content you need to pay for comes up as well as the included content. It can be frustrating for ds1 when he's searching for something to watch.

leccybill Tue 28-Jun-16 12:15:03

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
DDo age 6 and I watched Little Big Awesome and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters as part of the pilot season. I told DD she had to write a review after so they could decide which programmes should be made and she loved the idea of this! We liked both shows- high quality.
2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
Lego Friends and My Little Pony but most of all Just Add Magic. Easy to find the episodes, pause and rewind.
3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?
The pilots (loved Sneaky Pete) and the series. Can always find a decent film too.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?
It's a good complemeant to our normal TV through BT. Def something for everyone. I like the Amazon remote where you can say the programme too.
5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?
My DD adores Tumble Leaf and so do we. It's educational and easy on the ear for parents.
She loves Just Add Magic too- good cast and the episodes are just long enough.
6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
I wouldn't be without it. £79 is superb value for next day delivery and the access to all the TV video and music.

>> I've ordered 1000+ times and only been let down once. When something couldn't be delivered, I was told at 8am so could still find what I needed.
The website is clear, uncluttered and as easy on my phone as my laptop.
I don't drive and am a single parent so free same day and next day delivery is a godsend.
There are a lot of things I'd give up before Amazon Prime.

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

We have recently started watching 'Just Add Magic's. Both DD (9) and DS (6) enjoyed watching this series. It's hard to find programmes that they will both enjoy together, so this was great. DD is really into the idea of magic and spells and so is in love with this series! We have also enjoyed 'Annedroids'. They love the premise of this series and almost devoured the first series in one sitting!

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

There is so much choice that it's hard to pin down what they like the most! They love picking films to watch, they love the Amazon exclusives, they have recently found some shorts about Minecraft - including one with an egg?!! - that they love!!

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

I love the film choice, and the fact that they have certain films on prime for a limited time. I love the Amazon exclusives. I love that I can watch old episodes of my favourite shows such as Downtown Abby and Out numbered , I love that my kids can use it by themselves to pick their favourites, and I love that you get so much for the price!

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

We have to be frugal with money and I like that the price of Amazon Prime Video gives us so much. We can choose to pay for an extra movie is we want to, or just watch the prime programmes and films if we don't want to spend more that month. It's easy to use and has great choices to watch .

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

My kids love Just Add Magic and 'Annedroids'. They love the hint of 'magic' that is almost believable. After watching Just Add Magic, they were out in the garden cooking up magic potions and recipes!

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

I didn't realise initially just how many perks there were to being a prime member. I love the free next day delivery, I've just discovered the Kindle lending library which I am so excited about, and we have the Amazon !music app for in the car. I don't think we could live without it, really!

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

I tend not to watch with DS. He uses his Kindle Fire to watch videos on a weekend morning (so I can get a lie in!)

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

He really enjoys Just Add Magic...which surprised me a bit as I wouldn't have thought it would appeal to an 8 year old boy! But he says it is "cool and funny"

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

That is easy for DS to use by himself his Fire

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

The quantity of material available

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

See above

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?

Access to Prime Video is one of the most important things to me. I have FireStick for the TV and DS has his Fire so we make good use of it. I also enjoy being able to order things for free next day delivery.

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?

Despicable Me. We enjoyed watching it for what feels like the hundredth time as it makes us all laugh.

2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?

Our kids enjoy watching movies on Prime Video. The movies are fairly current and it saves us money from buying DVDs. They know they don't get new DVDs often as they get scratched, so choosing from Prime feels like there is no limit to it.

3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video?

The fact that it's unlimited streaming.

4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?

Difficult question, as we don't use it as much as our Netflix account. The sole reason for this is that the kids section is not separate, like on netflix, so kids can access content that is unsuitable for them.

5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them?

No, we haven't watched them.

6.Amazon Prime Video is one of many benefits included in Amazon Prime membership - how important is Amazon Prime membership to you and why?
Not important enough to pay £79 a year up front. I doubt we will continue with Prime after this year is over. The free fast postage is great, but we have been disappointed at the offerings from Prime Video this year.

1.What was the last thing you watched with your kids on Amazon Prime Video and what did you like about it?
The Lego Movie - enjoyed it more on the sofa than I did at the cinema.
2.What do your kids enjoy watching on Amazing Prime Video and why?
Teen Titans, Spongebob, My Little Pony, Winx Club and Fun Spot Surprise Eggs (which I hate with a passion)
3.What is your favourite thing about Amazon Prime Video? Convenience
4.What makes Amazon Prime Video appealing to you and your family?We live in an area with very patchy terrestrial reception. TV signal can vanish for days. Amazon Prime via the Firestick never seems to waver.
5.Tumbleleaf, Wishenpoof!, and Just Add Magic are Amazon Kids' originals available only on Amazon prime - which Amazon Prime Kids' shows have you/your kids watched and what did you/your kids like about them? Wishenpoof. We have watched that a couple of times. My daughter liked it but found it a bit dull. I found it annoying as hell, but I'm not the target audience.
