Home to Kidoodle.TV

I have been using Kidoodle.TV with the girls since it began Beta testing in September, and have enjoyed the experience.  It is nice to see new shows being added, as well as trying out the different features included a "Parents Room" where you can monitor what your child is viewing, as well as the parental controls, where you can filter the shows don't want your children to watch based on their age.  With Kidoodle.TV you don't have to worry about having to pre-screen all the shows, as they offer age appropriate content  that is not only entertaining but offers educational benefits as well.  Parents will appreciate this and children will enjoy the great content Kidoodle.TV is available to offer from a variety of sources. In addition, "Kidoodle.TV offers the freedom and diversity of Internet access but with parameters built in to assist with child safety."

Kidoodle.TV was built with kids in mind, especially those 12 years and younger.  You can see this when you register and log in for the first time as they offer a brightly colored, easy-to-use user interface.  And, depending on the number of children in your household who will be using this service, you can customize each kid profile (for up to 5 kids), so that their viewing experience is unique to them and their likes. :-) 

Once you log in to Kidoodle.TV, you will be able to select from the up to 5 kid profiles you have set up for your family.  Then, you can leave it up to your child to what they want to watch.  No more having kids fights over who gets to watch what and when.  My kids love the fact that each of the shows are free of advertisements, so that they can enjoy their shows without interruption.  I don't know about you, but with my toddlers, they don't have patience when it comes to commercials, and are always fussing when one comes on, as they want their program back.  With Kidoodle.TV I don't have to worry about this, which I love! And, I don't have to worry about them seeing toy commercials and begging me to buy them the toy they saw and have to have.

We tried giving up cable in our house, but ended up putting it back on as we were all going stir crazy, and missing our favorite episodes.  I used to love sitting with the girls in the AM and watching their educational shows and then talking about what they learned.  In place of cable, we were utilizing other online content platforms, but were never fully satisfied with what they had to offer, especially for kids.  Either the content was not age-appropriate or it was hard to navigate through, and not one you would want to leave your little ones to navigate on their own.  And, the pop up ads always drove us crazy.  I would log in to the computer later in the day to find new spam programs were added a result of trying to click off of these pop up ads.  And, the services would make my computer slower and crash without warning. Not fun, especially when you have little ones who are getting into a show, and then have the screen go black.

But, like I said, I have been using Kidoodle.TV since its beta testing began in September, and have not run into any problems as of yet. And, when you are on the go, you can also download the mobile app for Kidoodle.TV to keep kids entertained wherever you are. This app has come in handy recently when we were driving to visit relatives for Thanksgiving, running errands or going to the doctor's office with the kids.  I could simply pull out my phone and choose my child's profile, and they were ready to be entertained, as we passed the time.  No more "Are we there yet" or "Are we almost done."  Instead, I have the girls asking me "Please, just one more show" as the timer goes off letting me know that they have watched their allotted viewing time.  The timer is a great feature to have, as I have been so so frazzled and lost track of time, only to find that the girls went over their 1 hour of television time in a given day.  Now, I don't have to worry, as the Kidoodle.TV timer feature will let me know.

With some many shows available on the Kidoodle.TV platform, the hard part will be choosing which show to watch first.  Savannah is a fan of Paddington Bear, one of my childhood favorites, while Bella likes the Zoo Babies.  The only thing that I can think of as a negative for the Kidoodle.TV service is that it markets My Little Pony and others as shows available, but these are not offered. Savannah got so excited when we first registered and she chose the My Little Pony icon for her personalized profile.  But, then when we went to browse the shows available, this and a few others we saw in the advertisements were not available.  Hopefully soon they will be, as it would really make my daughters and others out there extremely happy. :-)

So, if you like fun online content platforms, that are geared towards your child, and that will provide not only entertaining but educational content, that you as a parent can control, then you will wan to check out Kidoodle.TV television.  Right now you can enjoy Kidoodle.TV FREE without the need to input a credit card, during the month of December.  This is a great way to try out this service and see if it is right for your family.  I know that once you try it out, that you will see why my family and so many others can't stop raving about Kidoodle.TV.
