CLOSED: Zoodle Review & Giveaway


CLOSED

Have you ever found yourself searching for educational content online for your kids? Or, been frustrated as you watched your child struggle to navigate a “kid’s site” that was clearly not designed for a kid? Or, wondered whether your children are *really* learning anything online? Or, worried about their online safety? We have. And, that’s exactly why Zoodles was born.

There are several other websites that offer educational games & such. But if you want all the great games in one place sorted out for ease of use, this is the place. I was truly inpressed with the selection & quality of games offered by Zoodles.

Zoodles basically scours the web to find the best educational content out there (games, puzzles, and videos) and puts it all in one place, presenting it to kids in a safe, simple web browser that adapts to your child's age and skill level.
Here is an example of a 7 yrs ToyBox

Another option I really love is the simplicity of accessability. One click & the kids are right on the Zoodles Website. I know exactly where they are going on the web & don't have to worry about accidents when logging on. Each kid has their own place (toybox) for age appropriate games & such.

I can also browse the content by each child & discover what, for example, Education Place has for each age level. Then each section is broken down into Educational Value which then gives a brief explanation of related skills.

Check it out & I am sure you will be as impressed as I was when I signed up. Below are some of my favorites on Zoodles Directory.

- American Girl

- Mattel Games

- Hotwheels

- National Geographic Kids

- Hasbro

- PBS Kids Sprout

There are several more awesome options ! Anyone can sign up for a 14 day free trial of Premium Features. The premium membership includes a play timer, a violence filter, ad-blocking, and the ability to block / promote content based on the subjects parents want their children to focus on.

Thanks to the wonderful people over at Zoodles one person will win a 3 month membership!!!!
