Made for kids, loved by parents.
This is the digital age. My girls are growing up when everything is digital and on a small or big screen. They want to watch more and more TV and I am fine with it only under the conditions that I know what they are watching, that what they watch is educational to a degree and that they are having fun too.
One of my biggest challenges is controlling the amount of time that they spend on their devices. Mimi can use her iPad like a grown person and Gabby is a little techy herself. So, controlling the amount of time is a bit of a challenge that we have tried working around.
Another fear of what they watch on cable, well, that’s another story. There’s questionable advertisements on TV, previews of shows that air later at night that are violent or inappropriate. Even with filters in place, you can still see questionable titles while they search for their shows.
Enter Kidoodle TV.
Ever since we’ve tried Kidoodle.TV, both of my girls have been hooked. I love the fact that I can control what they watch (not that I needed to do anything, Kidoodle.TV has awesome titles) and distribute the amount to time that they are on it as well. Both girls have different profiles that are customizable (up to FIVE) and are only accessible when I put in the pass code. The Parents Room allows me to be in control.
- Kidoodle.TV is a safe, ad-free streaming video service that you can customize for your kids according to your, and their, preferences
- Make up to 5 custom kids’ profiles. Choose content based on your child’s age or on a show-by-show basis
- Time limits can be placed on viewing through the secure Parents Room, allowing families to balance the time spent on Kidoodle.TV with other important activities
- Watch Kidoodle.TV on the go – just need access to the Web
- Kidoodle.TV has safe, kids-only content, including retro content from your childhood like Jem and the Holograms and Inspector Gadget
Nostalgia to The Max!
Gabby is loving all the shows that she can watch on her tablet, she asks me every night to watch Kidoodle.TV and I set an allotted time for her and off she goes. Some of the titles she is enjoying is Jem and The Holograms, Life, Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test to name a few. You can see her show you a little preview of Kidoodle.TV in the video above!

Need a Device?
Kidoodle.TV is giving away 3 iPad Minis RIGHT NOW, just go to their Facebook page to enter, here. Kidoodle.TV is a great service, it is kid-approved and parent-approved. I fell in love with the fact that I know what and how much they’re watching and that they are being introduced to shows that I watched as a kid. It’s heartwarming.
Worried about streaming and the costs?
I was worried that while Kidoodle.TV is extremely affordable, that the streaming may cost me more on my internet bill. I contacted tech support for Kidoodle.TV to enquire how my usage would affect this and the quality that may run up my bill. Jared from Kidoodle.TV was amazing, he helped me calculate how much I could watch each day and which device.
So, rest easy.
According to my monthly GB allowance from my provider and all 4 devices that would use Kidoodle.TV, I’d have to watch A LOT to actually go over my allowance.
I’d have to use over 15 hours a day to go over my allowance, of course this is catered to my devices and the amount of gigs I pay for my internet provider. It will vary according to your situation, if you are unsure, you can always contact them. They are so helpful and prompt!
