As someone who spends a great deal of time working from home lately, and having also a kid at home, I can see the need to keep them entertained and 'out of the way' from my home office for a solid working day. Not that I like the idea of 'screen time' as a pacifier, but when we're at home so much lately, this is one tool in the toolbelt. And if you've got a younger wee'un, well, there's apparently something called Tubi. Never heard of it myself, but it's a TV show/movie platform, and now they're rolling out a specific Kids version on Android.
Oh, and it's free!
