Just to confirm, it seems that from the testing Peanut did that the answer to my question of "If I create a profile for each of my kids with a new secret email address for them, can I subsequently change the Play store account to my credentials and buy apps for them that are then associated with their profile?" is Yes? (Though perhaps replacing associated with accessible is more accurate). I appreciate all the help and feedback...I'd throw you both an extra +1 if it let me :)

@TheAndroNerd Sorry for my confusion. There are too many "accounts" floating around, between the owner Google Account the device makes you setup, the Google Account for each user/profile, and then Account used in the Play Store which it seems you can change to be different than the Account of the current user/profile.

It sounds, so far like I have to do the second option, but for those of us with more than one child it still causes problems because each child cannot have their own setup in that situation right (without re-buying the same game for the same device for each child)?

What I meant was, lets say I add a tablet user for my son and specify a new gmail account my.son@gmail.com. Then I go to the play store, open the menu, select Accounts, and then add my account, dad@gmail.com. I then proceed to buy and install Angry Birds. Now that I've done that, I switch the Play Store account back to my.son@gmail.com. What happens to Angry Birds?

If you do test a few things out, see if you can create a test kid user profile with no google account, but then configure the Play store to use a real google account.

I don't mind that they are not linked to the fake google account I setup as long as they are linked/available from their "profile" on the tablet. I cannot tell if a Google account and profile on the table are synonymous or just associated to each other.

Thank you, I'm really curious what happens with some of the different permutations.
