Is there a way to pw lock or control what my kids purchase on Kindle? it is linked to my credit card and my toddler purchased points to a game. Any way to prevent this from happening?

Which Kindle? Some Kindles have parental controls. Check the on line manual if you want to know for sure - http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=kinw_myk_khelp_ghelp?ie=UTF8&nodeId=200127470

Watch your child. Tell them that if they do it again they cannot play with the Kindle. If they are too young to understand this, they are probably too young to play unsupervised. You could also not have your c.c. linked.

And let the d.v. begin!

Hey! If they advertise diapers on Kindle, it must be for kids.

You can use the Parental Controls to block in app purchasing. Look here for details:

I must have missed that connection as I have never once (knock on wood) seen those dreaded diaper ads ;P
