OUR THOUGHTS:

Ladybug (10yo girl)…I like redesigning my “room” and sending e-mail to mommy.

Peanut (8yo boy)…The games and videos are cool.

Little One (3.5yo girl)…Mommy, hurry up! You’re taking forever on the ‘puter! I want to play KIDO’Z!!

Mommy…There are three things that I liked about KIDO’Z: 1) I can walk away while they play knowing they’re not going to open some site with something inappropriate, 2) I can walk away knowing they’re not going to register or download something potentially harmful for the computer, 3) I can walk away to do something and know they can easily find the next fun thing to do on KIDO’Z because of the easy navigation and big selection, and 4) I like how easy it is to add additional websites for the kids to access.

OUR OVERALL RATING: Thumbs Up

    I would be getting this for my kids – Mostly my daughter Chloe! She's 6 and loves using the computer to learn. I think she would love the ability to have email the best since she loves getting mail.
