ABCMouse website for kids PRICED AT WHAT!!!

Ok so as advertised on TV theres a website for early learning ABCMouse.com alright, well i just went to the site thinking hey my 2 year old would LOVE this since it's something on the computer for HER! she could use the mouse and click on what she wants learn her ABC's and 123's yes LOVING THE ADVERSITIMENT! BUTTTTTTT heres the kicker, yes you get the first month FREE! great ok.. well here are the prices from month 2 on out! 7.95 a month just to use it or 80.00 for the whole year, i guess it's ok priced but when you don't have the money to spend the extra 8.00 a month or 80.00 a year i guess i'm just a little upset that they don't really tell you that on tv in any type of small print or anything, (and i'm usually the one to read the small print to find out what the catch is) i'm probably over reacting but am i wrong for thinking that in order to help your kid get ahead or start to teach them that they shouldn't really charge anything since they don't advertise that on tv in any type of small print??

no bashing just getting this off my chest

No way, there is too many free sites for kids to pay for one.

i don't understand your response are you agreeing with me that i'm not overreacting or that i am and i guess i just can't find the free sites for my 2 year old
