The BEST thing for kids online! [Zoodles Review]

I am so excited to bring you a review of Zoodles. It is a kid friendly internet browser that allows parents to have confidence in letting their children play games and watch videos online independently! I made a quick little video to tell you all how much I've enjoyed Zoodles over the last year. I found Zoodles completely by chance after being frustrated with the amount of ADs that sites like Playhouse Disney and Nick Jr. display on their sites. Zoodles is FREE, but there is a paid premium option that allows you to fully customize your child's experience and it's only $39.99 for a full year! (about $3.39 p/month) When you try Zoodles for the first time, you'll get 14 days of premium features that you're sure to fall in love with. As I mention in my video, we've used the FREE version for most of the past year & loved it!

I really wanted to be able to make a screen-cast of how my Zoodles parent dashboard looks, but I was unable to get the sound to work. Click here to view Zoodles' one minute tour.

Here are some screenshots of my parent dashboard, specifically the subjects pertaining to the shows, games and everything my munchkin does on Zoodles. As I mentioned in my video, I have math and reading at 100% on the 'promote subjects' page of my dashboard.

I hope you enjoyed learning about Zoodles, and I hope you'll check it out! It's well worth it to use Zoodles versus allowing your kids on websites with no filter!

*In the interest of full-disclosure: I contacted Zoodles letting them know we'd been using their program for over a year and would like to review. I not paid to write this review however, I was given a few months of Zoodles premium.
