Fooz Kids: Internet Browser Just for Kids

Fooz Kids Happy Kids are Fooz Kids

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.

The kiddo is three years old. He doesn’t get to play video games on the computer, except at Grandma’s house as a special treat. In fact he really doesn’t get much computer time all. He has of course already mastered my iPhone and a select few games on there, but computers…I don’t know…I’m weird about it.

Computer time.

It’s partly because there’s so much stuff out there that I just don’t want him to exposed to. Yes, I know, at three years old he won’t be surfing the web just yet, but still. Still.

I know, I’m weird about it.

When I happened upon a new app for kids, a kid-safe internet browser, I was intrigued. Is this the solution to my weirdness about the internet, games and young kids? It just may be.

FoozKids.com* is a new application that allows kids to view the best, kid-friendly content on the web, and it allows the parents to control all of it. Pretty awesome.

It’s not a search engine though. It’s a one-stop place for kids activities, videos, games, movies and even education.

It’s an introduction to email and video for kids who are a bit older.

It’s also a way for kids to connect and share with their friends online, making it their very first social network. I love social networking and I’m glad there’s a safe way to introduce it to my son.

With FoozKids.com* parents have total control over what their children are able to see. In the Parental Dashboard {pictured above} we have the ability to decide what content is and is not appropriate for our kids based on their age. With a simple click of the mouse you can add or remove content. Brilliant.

Trying out a new kid-friendly browser/app.

The kiddo is still a little young for many parts of the site, but we have sat down together to explore it and he was pretty amazed, especially by the games and videos {he was in heaven watching some Cars video clips}. We browsed through the craft section and found many coloring pages to print out for some off-line fun. We even put together a puzzle. It’s going to take a little practice before he gets the hang of it, but I can already tell that he’s going to love it.

Perhaps best of all, with FoozKids.com* I’m starting to become more comfortable with the idea of him spending time online.
