    how do i let my kids purchase items form avatar shop and add friends?


    so ( new to xbox world) just got xbox one for kids for holidays.

    Set u p account including my profile and then made one for each of two kids.

    set them to Child settings.

    however when they tried to buy item for their avatar, said was not allowed. There was no option for me to enter my passcode and approve???

    Also, when tried to add kids school friend..said was denied and again no option for adult to approve?

    Yet when they goto play again listed as 10+ i am asked for parental overide..which is good.

    What can i do to fix this?

    Thanx!

    Papanerd

    :)

    Transfering purchased avatar items from xbox live account to other users with local xbox account

    I have an xbox live gold account and my kids have local NON xbox live accounts. They want some avatar items for their avatar. Is it possible for me to purchase avatar items on my xbox live account and then allow my kids to use those items on their local
    accounts? If it is possible, then can you please explain how because we were not able to do it. Thanks.

    Trying to buy Minecraft Axe or T-shirt for my kids avatar

    The Kid account is brand new.

    My account I have had for awhile now; at least a year. And, Yes I can make purchases with my Adult account. I have never bought Avatar items however for my adult account as I don't need them.

    I just tried to purchase an avatar item again from the Kid account using the link you provided and I get the same error: "Sorry Purchase of this content is currently not allowed for child and teen accounts."

    I was able to add points to the Kid account only by using a prepaid points card as when I tried other methods is informed me Kid accounts cannot buy from the website. Understandable so I used the prepaid card and was able to add points that way.

    I originally thought is was the parental controls not allowing this so I tried changed those too with no success.

    Seems odd that we can't purchase something as simple as Avatar items.

    Let me know what else to try. Thanks.

    Puchased and downloaded content - but can't locate new content

    Hi,

    What sort of Add-On's did you purchase? I know that Minecraft only has Skin Packs as "Add-On's" in the marketplace at this point in time.

    If you purchased an Avatar Item, Gamer Picture, or Theme those are items used on the Xbox 360 Dashboard (for themes), for Avatar Items / Gamer Pictures those are things that you can spruce up your Xbox 360 Avatar with. Those are items your friends see you having
    on their friends list, not items that can be used in game.

    My Mass Effect 3 avatar prop doesn't seem to work.

    Greetings, viva Columbia. Regarding your omniblade avatar award, let's do a little test. I just sent you a friend request. Can you please add me to your friends list? Please make sure the avatar item is successfully equipped and I will take a look at your
    avatar from the dashboard. Thanks!

    Blocking apps and game purchases with parental code

    This simple feature is the bane of my bank accounts existence. Every time I leave my 5 year old alone with the xbox he ends up purchasing useless junk in Minecraft or avatar shops. Or full priced games that he already has in physical form.

    In regards to the often commented "Make them their own account" That also involves money and all of his game saves not getting transferred. Or the other chestnut "Monitor your kids better" obviously do not have kids.

    Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error

    Hey brm2005! You will need to add a payment option to purchase avatar items through the website or an Xbox 360 console to purchase avatar items. Thanks!
