Nowadays most of our children are becoming more and more tech savvy, my 2 year old knows her way around a tablet better than her grandparents. Quick as a flash they have it up and running and are watching there favourite youtuber’s unbox eggs – yes that is a real thing and if your child hasn’t found it yet your days are numbered.
Now I love the internet; the internet has given me a career, a career I didn’t even know could be possible a few years ago and I am so happy with where I am and what it has given me. That doesn’t stop my concerns about my children being online at such a young and impressionable age I still want them to see the world through rose tinted glasses I don’t want them to see the dark side of the internet and technology.
I was asked to have a look at the KidzInMind App recently and if I liked it to share it with my readers. You can guess by the title that I did in fact like it and want to share it with you guys.
KidzInMind is a new app available on iOS and Android devices, the app offers peace of mind to parents by providing children with age appropriate content and approved educational apps the app is best suited for children aged 2-6. KidzInMind has no adverts (which seem to send children into melt down and see devices lobbed across the room), parenting controls are included and there is NO HIDDEN PAYMENTS.
Well no hidden payments just had me sold you know what kids are like when the get a little bit click happy, I don’t think I ever shared the story of when Bella was about a year old and brought me a holiday for 2 to Amsterdam from Groupon.. clearly she felt mummy needed a break, what a babe!
The parental controls within the app are just excellent you can set up guided access which keeps your child just on that app meaning they can’t just switch off and find egg unboxing – its harmless enough but it doesn’t really provide anything for them, unlike the apps within KidzInMind which are all educational, engaging, interactive and age appropriate.
My girls have loved flicking through the playground and finding little videos to watch and games to play, Lottie is obsessed with the musical chicken piano where as Bella has had alot of fun brushing up on her maths skills. The app is perfect for preschoolers and those who are just starting out, it reinforces things they will be learning at school and nursery in a fun way.
KidzInMind is available to download on Android from Google Play and iOS from the App Store. The app is subscription-based and after the first week, which is free, KidzInMind is priced a 79p per month for limited in-built apps and features. Parents can pay £2.99 per month for unlimited access to the full app, video and game catalogue and all the parental safety controls. I think it’s a real bargain for a great app with a ton of content to keep the kids happy for hours (or as long as you allow with the use of the parental controls) be sure to check it out for your little ones and let me know what you think!
