A child can start watching a chapter on the tablet and finish it on TV quickly, with just a click. Which is always an advantage.
Not to mention favorites, subscriptions, and verified content creators who always keep their eyes on the little one. In addition, and as announced by Amazon on its Fire TV Stick blog, This YouTube Kids “app was designed to meet the needs of children, with larger buttons for easier interaction and kid-friendly graphics to keep them interested. ”
