I wish I could let my children just turn on the TV and watch their favorite kids shows, but I have seen too many kids shows that I do not approve of. I was flipping channels the other day, and I couldn’t believe what I was watching during daytime hours. This is the reason I monitor what my children are watching, and only allow them to watch kids TV shows and kids movies that are “mom approved.” It can get a little difficult with 4 children who are all in different age groups, and allowed to watch different kids shows. This is why I love Kidoodle.TV to monitor your kids TV viewing! If you have been following my blog for a while you might remember us writing about Kidoodle.TV. We love Kidoodle.TV, and have been using it since I first reviewed it several months ago.
Kidoodle.TV helps me monitor what my kids are watching, how long they are watching, and ensure they are ONLY watching programs that are “mom approved.” Kidoodle.TV is designed for kids 12 years of age and under, and allows parents total control over what your children are watching. When parents sign up with Kidoodle.TV they will have access to the Kidoodle.TV Parents Room. The Parents Room features tools for parents to create up to FIVE custom kid’s profiles, and choose content according to your children’s ages, or on a show-by-show basis. You will never need to worry about your kids clicking on ads while streaming, because Kidoodle.TV is a safe, ad-free streaming video service that is customized by parents for their kids. Parents have the ability to restrict content based on family values, viewing habits, and child’s age. Kidoodle.TV can be accessed from most of your Internet-connected devices – smartphones, tablets (Android & iOS), PC, laptops, MAC, iPads, etc. I was excited to learn Kidoodle.TV will also be expanding to smart TVs, gaming consoles, and other devices. Since accounts are password protected, users can access Kidoodle.TV from several different locations, which makes it a great option for traveling or trips to the store. When I go grocery shopping my youngest daughter is with me, which is fine, but if we spend too much time shopping things can take a turn for the worst. Rather than fighting with her, getting frustrated, and picking up $200 of things I do not need, I allow her to stream Bo on the Go using Kidoodle.TV from my smartphone. It keeps her from getting bored and frustrated, and helps me focus on shopping, especially since I never remember my list. With the summer sneaking up, I am sure we will be using Kidoodle.TV on road trips too! Kidoodle.TV is great while you are on the go. Parents know their kids are watching only approved programs, even if they decide to click around and change shows. Do you limit TV and streaming usage? Parents can also set time limits using the secure Parents Room, which helps balance the time spent watching Kidoodle.TV with other important activities. When you visit the Kidoodle.TV library you will find cartoons, kids’ sitcoms, wildlife and nature shows, as well as educational series from different global sources. Kidoodle.TV is awesome, we have enjoyed their service, and I have found it well worth the $4.99 a month. Kidoodle.TV has safe, kids only content, including retro content from your childhood like Jem and the Holograms and Inspector Gadget. Oh, and of course my favorite Pound Puppies!
