Kidoodle.TV: A Safe Site For Kids

31/03/2014

Kidoodle.TV: TV. Built for Kids, Loved by Parents

This post is brought to you by Kidoodle.TV and BlogHer.
An Invitation to Kidoodle.TV and Our Upcoming Twitter Party: I’m excited to share information about the excellent Kidoodle.TV service built specifically for kids and to invite you to our upcoming Twitter Party!  What is Kidoodle.TV? Kidoodle.TV is a safe, ad-free streaming video service that offers the discerning parent many quality shows for their children to watch.  They provide a generous list of educational and entertaining programs that can be customized for each kid in the family.  Because the selection of videos are in an environment that parents control, kids can watch their pre-selected Kidoodle.TV shows on the go and with minimal supervision.

How It Works: Signing up your child is easy peachy. All a parent needs to do is visit the Kidoodle.TV website and register in their own name and once that is completed, they can help their child create a personalized profile. The website is user-friendly, and the registration process is quick and very easy to do. Once the parent is registered, the next step is to help their child create a profile.

How Do You Create a Profile?  Parents can create up to 5 custom kids’ profiles and set time limits using a protected pass-code. The site provides a template that includes; a place to add the child’s name, several themes to help them choose a preferred one, defined age groups to help select the child’s correct age, and a wide range of videos to help parents choose a group of shows/content based on each child’s age.  Kids can also choose on a show-by-show basis.

What About Other Features? Another invaluable feature that Kidoodle.TV offers is the ability for parents to easily set viewing time limits. Once the time limit is set, anywhere from 15 minutes to unlimited viewings, Kidoodle.TV automatically enforces the time limit! So not only would kids get to watch educational and entertaining shows, they’d do so in a safe environment and with clear time limits.

What About The Programs? Kidoodle.TV offers a fairly wide selection of safe, popular and unique kids only content, including retro content from our childhood; shows like Jem and the Holograms, and Inspector Gadget are some of the familiar names on the Title Selection list. Once a child is signed up, they will notify the parent as more educational and entertaining content gets added to the list. Currently, Kidoodle.TV is available only to kids in Canada and the United States and it’s a great time to sign your child up and start enjoying the selections. More Below!

What About Questions Parents Have? The FAQ page answers all the questions parents might have and provides a way to communicate instantly with a service representative.  Another exciting way to learn more about Kidoodle.TV will be for you to attend our upcoming Twitter party which will be held on April 2, from 8-9 p.m. EDT (5-6 p.m. PDT). Stay tuned for regular updates on the Twitter party and make sure to mark that date on your calendar. During the Twitter party you can answer the question, “What is your biggest safety concern when your children are online?” for an opportunity to win a grand prize giveaway: a $250 Amazon gift card plus a year subscription to Kidoodle.TV. Read the official Twitter party sweepstakes rules here. The $250 Amazon card can be used towards the purchase of an iPad for your child.  The upcoming party will answer any other questions and give you a chance to connect with other moms and learn more about Kidoodle.TV’s fantastic kid-safe and friendly services.

    Hi Eliz, This sure looks like it will appeal to parents and grandparents. Thanks for sharing. :-)

    That looks like a really in-depth parental control dashboard…I also like how you can set time limits to how long a child has access to this service. Very cool.

    I’ve never heard of this service before. it sounds like something a lot of parents and grandparents would really be into. My son would love being able to watch Caillou and his other favorite programs on it.

    This is great for children who are now more engaged on Tablet or Phones rather than TV .

    this is really and truly a great idea!!

    It’s great to see a useful tool for parents and kids. Setting limits on screen time is so important.

    We can entertain kids on this once in a while. This is one of them.

    Interesting. I never heard of Kidoodle TV and I am definitely going to be checking it out for my kiddos. Thanks for sharing!!

    Time limits have to be a parent’s best friend!

  17. 01/04/2014 9:44 pm

    This is a pretty important topic: our kids and electronics consumption. Thank you for sharing.

    This is completely new to me. I don’t subscribe to cable TV because I have concerns with ads, time limits, and shows that are otherwise considered “appropriate” that I just don’t approve of because they promote conflicting values. This sounds like something that meets my standards!

  19. 01/04/2014 10:57 pm

    Wow! This is cool! Is this available in the US only?

  20. 02/04/2014 4:13 am

    This looks like a cool site for kids. Thanks for sharing. ;)

    This is really neat. I never heard of this service before and love how you can set time limits for your child. I wish I had this when my kids were smaller. I will check them out though to see what is available for my 6yr. Thanks for sharing.

    A perfect for my kiddies and its safe to used and kids friendly. Thanks for sharing Sis, LOVE it:)

    My kids would like this, I like that there is content listed by their age.

  24. 30/04/2014 1:07 am

    Fantastic idea!Just perfect!)

    This is so cool! I will have to look into this more for our son. He loves watching videos on our kindle but they are flooded with ads and I have to keep a close eye on him plus some of the shows are just not what I like him watching. It would be nice to customize a profile just for him to what he can watch and for how long without the worry. Thanks for the review!

  26. 01/05/2014 4:14 am

    Cindy B (on rc/fb) I think this is a really interesting idea. Thanks for the review/info; I’ll have to check it out for my kids :)

  27. 01/05/2014 5:10 am

    This sounds like a great way to monitor what you kids watch and how long they watch.

    It’s good to know about places like these. I’m always worried about letting my son do anything on the internet.

    Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel being a new parent in the digital age. I feel like I’m old what with all the new fangled gadgets. I’m pregnant at 36. I grew up without all this stuff so I guess what I’m saying is its going to be interesting going by how I was raised and how I raise this little one.

    My kids would love Kidoodle.tv. I would love it because there’s no reason to worry about what my kids are watching.

    I love this because these days you can’t be to careful or safe with what your kids see and do.

    It looks like a good way for parents to know what their kids are watching.
