Kid Safe Internet! Zoodles Review& Giveaway!



Zoodles is a kid safe FREE browser, that can be easily used by kids!  Simply point the mouse and click.  Best yet, each child has their own "playground" built for their age group! Filled with educational games from around the web.  Zoodles has placed them all within reach of your child, taking out the time you would spend searching.

When I was asked to review this browser I jumped at the chance!  Kids nowadays know the internet very well.  And you think you've taken every precaution to keep them safe.  But I know from experience just making one little typo can send you into a whole wrong part of this cyperworld!   Anyone type.com instead of .org or .net or vise versa and been taken somewhere you don't belong???  How many times has that happened to kids out there surfing?  So yes, I really wanted to try this out!

But Zoodles didn't stop just there! This is the part I love! Being a home schooling family, I don't have a "Learning Lab" Its pretty much up to me to find these educational games.... Then what?  How do I know they're working. Or if their even on the right game?? *Especially the older ones that know how to surf*

Zoodles has a parent dashboard that allows the parent to curve the games to the learning specific to the child. So like with Caitlin 3 y/o, she knows her shapes her numbers to 10 and can say the alphabet but not by sight....So I would increase her reading.

With Anthony, 10 y/o, it's more of a focus in Math & Reading.  So you can see here I increased those subjects.



Another part of the parent dashboard tells me everything!   Zoodles tells me exactly where they were and for how long....Pretty awesome huh!  Wyatt is only 5 y/o and still thinks he can trick Mama still so...  I just log in and check to see if he put in the time he was suppose to. 

Also a pie chart

There is just so much Zoodles has to offer! Zoodles is a free child-safe browser but for the play timer, progress reports, child updates, Ad blocking, subject promoting you must upgrade. Everyone gets a 14-day trial period to try it all!  Just go to Zoodles and sign up!

Zoodles offer a time limit that you can put on your kids Web surfing so that they are not getting overexposed.
