The new stories in the Amazon featuring the TV characters from Amazon studios, include the famous ones, “ Danger & Eggs” and “Niko and Sword of Light”. The celebrity Aidy Bryant of Saturday Night Live has given his voice in “Danger & Eggs” and the famous voice of Spongebob Squarepants, Tom Kenny contributed for the “Niko and Sword of Light”. The story's plot is controlled by the writers behind the actual TV shows.

The Rapid is the subscript service which lets the parents control what their kids are watching and keep an eye on their progress with the help of provided dashboard. The service costs $2.99 per month and available on the iOS, Android and Amazon Fire devices.
