"Our goal is to give kids a safe place to play and learn online. We knew that we couldn’t just give kids a typical browser and send them off to explore. Most sites today are way too complicated for young kids to navigate on their own, and they don’t provide enough safety from all the bad stuff lurking on the web.
So, we started from scratch. We built a FREE browser, especially for kids, that makes it simple for them to find lots of fun activities – all by themselves. By launching the icon on your desktop, your child will enter a full-screen mode of Zoodles that will keep them from exiting out and finding inappropriate content or accidentally deleting your important files."
Zoodles has made it very easy for my kids to play online. They know exactly how to find their games because they can see their picture and know to click on it. Even my two year old, Benjamin knows where to find his games. My son Robbie loves playing the science games, Lauren loves doing dress up, and Benjamin loves the you-tube videos. There is plenty of wonderful things for each child.
One thing that you will notice about the next two pictures is that the set up is different for each one. I really like this. Zoodles has it set up in a way that makes it easy for the child. For younger children they get less options. My 5 year old gets the choice to choose her games and do art, whereas my 7 year old can make his choice by subjects or by characters. He is older and can read so this is an great option for him.
What of the most important features that Zoodles has for me, is that it allows me to have parental control of what my kids are doing. Zoodles gives us parental controls so we can customize the games and activities in your child’s Playground. Don’t want your child interacting with a specific game, website, or branded character? Not a problem. You can tell them what you want to block, and Zoodles will remove all related games from your child's Playground. Have a child that's falling behind in math? Zoodles lets you ramp up educational subjects in your child's Playground so he or she can spend more time playing games in those subject areas. Additional parental controls include the ability to set time limits, block videos or printables, and even set violence filters.
