Samsung Kids collaborates with Fingerprint, a global mobile technology company that has been leading the rapidly growing kids' mobile education and entertainment market since 2010, to offer an innovative, kid-friendly experience via the Samsung Kids service. Fingerprint and iHeartRadio Family have formed a partnership to deliver best-in-class kid's music content to family audiences across Fingerprint's mobile platform and partner distribution networks, and it will be available exclusively on Samsung Kids first.

Samsung Kids is an all-inclusive subscription content service that offers parents and children a library of expertly curated, engaging educational games and books mapped to U.S. Common Core standards with an emphasis on STEM education. New content is added monthly for a renewed experience. The service allows children to experience their favorite characters, games, and content in a parental-controlled environment where parents can identify specific subject areas for their child to focus and control the amount of time they are using the app. There are no ads, so parents may rest assured that kids are only engaging with content they trust.

The Samsung Kids app is available for download on Galaxy phones and tablets in the Google Play store and Galaxy Apps store, and is pre-loaded on select Galaxy tablets, including the Galaxy Tab E Lite that comes with a neon protective bumper designed especially for kids.
