I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kidoodle.TV. I received a promotional item and a free trial as a thank you for participating.
My son is getting more and more into watching television and playing on my iPhone or iPad as sources of entertainment. He is also becoming independent, meaning he wants to be able to grab any electronic device and get it working all by himself. He doesn’t like it when I have to browse to YouTube to find an age-appropriate video, or take the time to open up one of his favorite apps.
In order to let him have full reign of the electronics and his fun, I knew I had to find something that was built just for kids. The answer has been found with Kidoodle.TV. Completely designed for children 12 years old and younger, Kidoodle.TV is a service that keeps kids entertained with very little parent involvement. Plus, there is nothing unsafe available to those viewing, so I don’t have to worry about anything inappropriate.
I was able to do 90% of my involvement before I even introduced Sawyer to Kidoodle.TV. Sign up took less than 2 minutes, and then I was taken to the Parent’s Room. Inside, I was able to set up a profile for each child (up to five), so that it could determine what to give them access to based on age.
For our kiddo, he can view anything geared towards kids 0-4 years old. Once that was finished, I could select Sawyer’s profile and he was free to choose a show to watch.
The Parent’s Room has pin-protected access, so there is no way our kids could go snooping around or change settings. As our kids get older, it will be nice to keep the older-aged stuff from baby #2. I could even decide which individual titles either kid could watch by changing access in the Parent’s Room. There is also a time limit feature so your kids don’t spend all day staring at a computer or tablet!
I was happy to see that there was an iOS app, meaning Sawyer and I could download and access Kidoodle.TV on my iPhone and iPad. This makes it the perfect solution to travel boredom, especially during the busy holiday season. It’s also been known to help us in the middle of the store, when he was whining that he was ready to go and wanted out of the cart.
