Zoodles Review + Giveaway!

     As a mother on the computer a lot, I found my children very curious. Obviously my 1 year old is no where ready to understand a computer but my almost 4 year old is. I was so happy when I came across Zoodles. Zoodles is a FREE kids browser where children can safely play and learn online. It offers our children their own virtual playground with hundreds of games, puzzles, videos, and more. The best part is Zoodles grows with your child and it adapts to his/her ability so they won't get frustrated. Don't we wish a browser did that for us? Zoodles also offers an adblocker, violence filter, parental control, play timer, and more. Another great thing about Zoodles is if your child tries to navigate anywhere else, the Zoodles browser will block them and take them back to their Zoodles playground.

     My favorite thing is the games directory. Zoodles scours the web to find the best educational content out there (games, puzzles, and videos) and puts it all in one place. This games directory is so easy to use. Parents can browse games by age or grade, subject, or character. Plus, learn what each game's about and what it teaches their kids. These games come from sites such as Disney, Scholastic, PBS, Nick Jr., and more. All the sites we trust and love!

     Anybody can get the Zoodles web browser for free, but for parents who want more control over their child's experience, Zoodles offers a paid premium membership. The Premium Membership includes a play timer, violence filter, ad-blocker, the ability to block unwanted sites, shows and games, and the ability to promote certain subjects parents want their children to focus on. Parents can also get great information about what their child has been playing. From the skills he or she has been building, to the sites he’s been visiting, to how much time he or she’s spent playing specific games.

     I really think Zoodles is awesome! My son absolutely loves the game selection. The games are so easy for him to play and understand. Each child has his/her own special dashboard with games tailored just to them. Now I don't have to go anywhere else for games for him except Zoodles! If you have a child from 2-8 be sure to check out Zoodles. It is well worth your time and your kids will learn and have a blast! To see what Zoodles is all about go here
