“I participated in a Blog Blast program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kidoodle.TV. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
I had the opportunity to give Kidoodle a try with my kids. We do have another paid streaming membership but I was interested to find out more about Kidoodle because this catered to kids under 12 and wanted to see what it was all about.Built for kids, not just aimed at them, Kidoodle.TV is designed specifically for the use and navigation by kids (ages 12 and under), ensuring an age-appropriate viewing experience. This was something I really liked. I was able to set up an account for my each of my kids. They really loved this feature because they saw it was programmed just for them w/their name.
Featuring a brightly colored, easy-to-use user interface, customizable Kid Profiles for up to 5 kids, and great entertainment and educational content from a variety of sources, Kidoodle.TV is child oriented and convenient, with no adult content and with robust controls for parents. My 10 year loved that it was not all just "baby stuff" as he would call it. He was interested in what there was to watch and I loved the fact that if there was something I knew he wouldn't like I was able to change it.
Parental controls include age category filtering and title selection and de-selection, which allows parents to tailor available content to each child’s needs.
Once logged into Kidoodle.TV, parents simply select a Kid Profile and hand off the navigation to the child.
Kidoodle.TV features content appropriate for its audience and is free of advertising within the service.
Kidoodle.TV offers the freedom and diversity of Internet access but with parameters built in to assist with child safety.

I asked my kids how they like it and my youngest son who is 10 said : What he liked is that it's much easier to watch shows that I like and he doesn't have to go a scavenger hunt to find shows he liked like other websites. Also they have shows that he learned which he really enjoyed. He watched all the National Geography that was on the site.
I also asked my daughter who is 6 years old what she thought : She loved that she watched new shows that had never seen but mama knew about like Madeline and Gem and a few other shows.
Our overall thoughts about Kidoodle was really postive I felt very comfortable with ALL the contents as I was able to review what they would be able to pick from and know they will be watching age appropriate.
So now being the rest of December is free go ahead and give it a try and why not also follow them on Twitter and Facebook to find out what new and wonderful things they will be having available.
