Fuhu Launches Subscription Service for Kids

Fuhu Inc. has launched a $4.99-a-month subscription service that gives children access to a curated selection of Disney songs, National Geographic videos produced for kids and stories about Garfield. It's not only the first to package such a wide variety of content learning tools, videos, music, games and books but also to have most of the content be educational in nature. Content will be swapped out regularly with the idea of keeping 80% of it educational and 20% for pure entertainment. It will also be deeply curated. For example, instead of offering streams of 16,000 Disney songs, users will get a selection of 1,000 each month.
