Child-Friendly Entertainment from Kidoodle.TV

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.

Kidoodle Parents Room

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.

    This looks like a neat app. I will have to check to see if they have something for Android. That would be so helpful for my crew. I like that you can have multiple profiles so your teens aren’t stuck watching stuff for preschoolers.

    I really love the idea of an app that is geared towards the kids ONLY! What a great way to ensure that they are having fun but not seeing anything they shouldn’t!

    I love how the Kidoodle.TV allows you to personalize viewing options for each child based on age so that they can enjoy their shows at an appropriate level. It can be so hard to give our kids viewing freedom with so much stuff out there, so a solution like Kidoodle.TV (especially with the app!) is really useful.

    As someone who isn’t a parent, I hadn’t really thought about the dangers that watching videos on YouTube could present, but you are definitely right. My sister allows me niece and nephew to watch a lot of videos on her iPad, and I’m not sure she has given it much thought, either. I’m going to tell her doubt your article so she can check out Kidoodle. They are both so different from each other that I think the personalized option would be great for each of them.

    We have played around with Kidoodle. I like that it’s much safer than youtube and easier to navigate too.

    As I was reading I was thinking this is awesome, then I started to think what’s appropriate for a 12 year old isn’t for a 5 year old. Then I was happily surprised when you mentioned the parents room to set up individual child’s profile that let you determine access based of his/hers age range. How perfect is that.
