We have a lot to protect our kids from in the digital age. Commercials, age inappropriate content, time limits etc. I am always looking for new ways to improve my boys’ (and my) experience with digital devices while still keeping them safe from content I don’t want them seeing.
We were recently introduced to Kidoodle.TV and we are so impressed! Kidoodle.TV is a safe, ad-free streaming video service that you can customize for your kids. You can set content for each individual kid (up to 5) by show or age and even set time limits so you don’t have to monitor that. At first we weren’t sure they’d have enough content for my older boys (9 and 11) but they loved all the National Geographic videos and other science based programing as well as the Family Game Night videos.
What they really loved was watching Inspector Gadget since it was a show I talked about watching as a kid. It is SO fun to find some of those shows to share with them (Jem and the Holograms anyone?!)
It really came in handy when we had dinner at a kid free house the other night. They had tons to watch without needing to ask to use other’s equipment. We brought our family iPad and iPhones and they were set along with a football and some other toys for breaks.
I didn’t realize how many ads they are exposed to on a daily basis until they were watching Kidoodle.TV and they mentioned how quick it was to watch and change shows (they didn’t have to wait to be able to skip ads). There was plenty of content for both of them to choose from and with the ability to personalize their profiles with the shows they want to watch, they each felt like they had their own TV channel.
I feel like Kidoodle.TV is one of those services you didn’t know you wanted until you had it and then you wondered why you didn’t get it sooner! Definitely handy in long allergist office waits. Not that we’d know about that or anything (our longest wait was an hour and a half).
