With 3 kids of different ages, we are always trying to balance what they are watching on tv, and for how long. Our girls got into the bad habit of watching whatever they could find on tv, regardless of the little 4 year old in the room.
Nightmares ensued, and suddenly he has a strange fear of X-rays?
Even kids shows have appropriate age limits, and for good reason! Some of them are just too scary for little eyes and minds!
That is why we are loving Kidoodle.TV With their new app I can program in a “channel” for each of my kids, and manage what is available for them to watch from the Parent’s dashboard.
I can also limit screen time, which is awesome and really helps with getting the chores done around the house!
Our little guy loves Super Why, and with 45 episodes to choose from, this should keep him busy for awhile.
The older girls have a few more options, and as a parent, I loved being able to manage their shows from the dashboard. And set up is easy. With each kid getting their own profile (up to 5) and colours, it is easy for them to see their channel and access their shows
And being able to set their time limits for Kidoodle.TV makes it easy to ensure they aren’t overdoing the screen time. Allowing them a single show before bed, (or for our early bird, before school) is easy with the time controls. Especially since I am often distracted when the kids are entertained!
And while there are tonnes of great cartoons, they also have an excellent selection of education shows as well. We have all enjoyed the National Geographic Critter cam and Wild series, and the totally groovy retro cartoons that I used to watch (Inspector Gadget was my guy)
Kidoodle.TV does need an internet connection to run, and will operate on a tablet or laptop or other device. Our girls have their nexus tablets, and were thrilled to be able to upload the app and curl up with a cartoon in a comfy spot. Check out what my daughter thinks of having Kidoodle.TV on her tablet.
