Review: Fooz Kids All-In-One: The Safe Online Community For Children Of All Ages
Thank you to Fooz Kids for providing me with an All-In-One pack to review. The opinions I’ve expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint.
My girls are obsessed with our iPad and love the various apps and games that you can download, however too give them a bit of variety, I have begun searching around for computer games that provide the same educational value and stimulation. The thing is, my eldest daughter is very ‘click’ happy and tends to end up in a different spot all together after I get a game set up for her. When I heard about Fooz Kids, I jumped at the chance to review it as the idea of a downloadable online community that was kid-safe and password protected was highly appealing.
Upon registering, I was asked to fill in my own personal information as well as my child’s name and age. They even have an option to customize cartoon characters to resemble you and your child when you log in. Once registered and logged in, I have full control over the Parental Dashboard and can customize privacy and safety settings. Oh and if my daughter decides to get all ‘click happy’ again? The program will not close or allow her to leave unless mom or dad puts in their password. Love it!
As you can see from the screenshots, you can manage your child’s favourite games, websites, shows and activities in your dashboard. I love how the account can be filtered according to age and gender! You can choose from 2-4, 5-7 and 8-11 for the older kids.
You can even track their progress!
What I loved the most about this program was the lack of advertisements. There is nothing more annoying then ads popping up when your child is in the middle of a game or activity and this program had zero. My almost 5 year old was able to zip around no problem (without my help) and was thrilled that she was able to watch episodes of her favourite characters (Angelina Ballerina, Franklin, etc) and interact with fun games.
We loved the customized email feature as well!
All in all, my girls and I both adore this program and highly recommend it for families looking for a safe, secure, educational and fun online space for kids! You can download it for free here.
