Have you ever found your child browsing the Internet, only to see age-inappropriate content or ads?

L watches videos of Lego or Mindcraft creations, which sounds innocent enough, but it only takes a few wrong clicks on the next suggested video and he can end up watching content I don’t approve of. So I really have to limit his use of our iPad and check on him constantly.

Kidoodle.TV to the rescue — it’s specifically designed for the use and navigation by kids (ages 12 and under) and ensures an age-appropriate viewing experience.

Featuring an easy-to-use user interface that lets you created Kid Profiles for up to 5 kids, Kidoodle.TV is child oriented and convenient, with no adult content. Parental controls include age category filtering and title (de)selection, which allows you to tailor the content to your child.

Once logged into Kidoodle.TV’s “Parents Room,” I simply created a profile for L and then handed off the navigation to him, knowing that he’ll only be able to watch the shows I want him to see, like “Busy Town of Richard Scary” and “Hooray for Huckle.”

L has loved Richard Scarry’s books since he was little, so I knew he’d love to see his shows, and he sure does. I surprised him today with handing him my computer to watch them for the first time.

I didn’t like several of the shows that were suggested for his age-range and simply turned them off, so L won’t even know that those shows are options. For now I chose the Richard Scarry shows, “My Friend Rabbit”, “Timothy Goes to School” and two National Geography educational shows geared for kids.

Another big advantage: Kidoodle.TV is free of annoying advertising! Kids are so influenced by TV ads, and I definitely want to prevent L from seeing them. When he watches regular kids shows, they are cut up in so many segments because of the constant ads, it makes me dizzy. No wonder so many kids have problems with paying attention, when 30-minute shows get interrupted 10 times by ads.

For right now, Kidoodle.TV is available for Macs and PC, and the mobile application helps you entertain your little ones on-the-go this holiday season. Eventually it will be available for tablets.

One addition feature I’d love is a timer that lets me determining how many minutes L can watch Kidoodle.
