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.
What is FoozKids you may ask? It is an application that provides secure and entertaining way for your children to surf internet. The best part is that you can choose which games, videos and content you are ok for your child to play with as well as monitor their activity.
What content can there be?
Anything on the web and much more, neatly organized to categories such as web, games, crafts etc.
First they can make their experience very personal with creator button by making their own avatar
Then they can creating their own virtual room with toys and furniture which I hope they will keep tidy.
They can dress their avatar up in funky gear from uniforms to mohawks and leprechaun suits by visiting the mall button.
Your kids can also write emails and video conference.
They can go to University tab and learn skills from Pre-K to 5th grade.
But that’s just the icing on the cake the Coolest thing ever is the web-surfing known as Games, Crafts and Video Buttons. When you click any of these three you will receive long list of your kids favorite characters they can watch, play with and remake.
Of course that is where we were stuck all day. At least I did not have to worry about Dora having a potty mouth. I have no idea when was the last time I was able to find a proper speaking Spongebob Squarepants on the internet.
Plus the organization is what really impressed me since I no longer need to look for crafts all over the web now they are in a specific place under exact character. The next theme birthday party will be a breeze with all decorations and cooking ideas in one place. There are lots of characters on this site from kiddie ones to teen ones.
Thanks to the Parental Dashboard those are all the characters you will find. No ads promoting stuffed pillows or sugar loaded cereals. You can even monitor the age group and films you want your kids to watch either by setting up their own channel or age guidelines. You can also check out their room and closet even though I am not sure how much pull you will have in trying to influence them.
The kiddos can not exit the program without the parent’s code so no sneaky surfing when you are not looking.
So what did the kiddos think? At first they were taking it all in and their bigger sister was helping them out with the mouse. It did not take long however for the teen to loose interest and for the blond preschooler to take over and not let me have my computer. I had to set timers and ask too many times.
Are you done yet? (I asked)
Yes, well NO… I am done with World Word but not Dinosaur Train. (she answered)
That is a lot nicer answer then I would have gotten if I ever let her watch Youtube unattended for hours.
Fooz Kids is available in many languages and is compatible for both Windows, Mac and Android tablets.
You may however rethink that if you want to use that device in a near future.
But don’t take my word for it GET YOUR FREE ACCOUNT HERE and let your kids surf worry free.
