Built for Kids, Loved by Parents

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kidoodle.TV. I received a promotional item and a free trial as a thank you for participating.


I’ll admit that I have, on occasion, used the television as a babysitter. Does that make me the worst mom ever? Hardly. Any mom who tells you that she’s never turned on some Bubble Guppies just so she could get 30 minutes of sanity-restoring peace and quiet is either A) lying, or B) not taking advantage of all the tools available to her.

In my defense, I do limit our daughter’s TV watching and, when she does get some screen time, it’s almost always an educational cartoon or show. But instead of adding $20 or $30 a month to your cable package just so you can get a few extra kid-friendly channels, you might consider online children’s TV websites like

website channels is a website that offers unlimited streaming of more than 60 shows for kids 12 and under. It’s only $4.99 per month, but it’s free for the entire month of December for those who might want a sneak peek. (See the last paragraph of this entry for details about how to get FREE for a whole year!) Here are just a few of things I love about the site:

  1. KID-SPECIFIC ACCOUNTS – The easy-to-use interface allows parents to create customized, age-filtered accounts for up to five different kids.
  1. KID-FRIENDLY CONTENT – Each channel is free of advertising and age-filtered, which means your three-year-old won’t see something that is meant for an 11-year-old.
  1. PARENTAL CONTROLS – The passcode-protected Parent Center allows you to choose which shows appears for each of your kids’ accounts. You can also control how much screen time they get by setting timers that control the duration of their usage.
  1. TONS OF SHOWS – There really is something for every child on Our little one loves animals, which means the National Geographic Critter Cam channel (“the world through animal eyes”) and Zoo Babies are two of her favorites.

  1. My kids love Kidoodle. My daughters both watch it whenever they get TV time.

  2. This looks great. I really limit what my kids watch so this looks like it would be a helpful tool.

  3. Interesting! I will have to check this out. We have netflix, but am not so sure that it is the best choice for the kids. I will be checking them out, thanks!

  4. I think my kids would love the National Geographic Critter Cam channel! I’ve never heard of, but will definitely be looking into it for my four kids! Thanks for sharing!

  5. My kids would LOVE THIS!! We dumped cable and need something like this!

  6. I’ve never heard of this before! We have Netflix, but I usually just use it for the kids. This may be cheaper! And I agree. Any mother who says that her kids don’t watch TV is lying. You just have to limit it and watch what they are watching.

  7. I honestly have never heard of Kidoodle. I will have to check it out. Hopefully my 3 yo will like it.

  8. This is awesome. I know that my kids would love this. Thanks for the great review.

  9. This looks so great! Something my daughter would love!

  10. What a perfect way to launch their program – free trial and contest to win a tablet. I love the idea that I can lock it down to things that are appropriate for him.

  11. I want to check this out for my six year old!

  12. what a great gift idea. i should get this.

  13. That would be a good idea for busy moms. Its not that its encouraging parents to sit their kids in front of the tv so they can do other things, but what is important is the actual tv shows that parents make their kids watch. Kidoodle tv is one of the best choices for kids, and economical for parents.

  14. I’ve never heard of Kidooole Tv. Looks like its totally worth it. I will definitely check them out. Plus its FREE….. Yes please 🙂

  15. I am like that too. TV is just so easy. turn it on and have the children watch the show they like and you get the me time you wanted. it sounded bad but we do need me time once in awhile. it;s not totally bad because we are still technically watching them while they’re watching TV. i gotta limit their TV viewing though. Great post

  16. This is such a great idea! I’ve never heard of kidoodle but it looks like it would be a great resource for parents!

  17. We’ve never tried it…love it! I use the television quite often to babysit…it’s all good!

  18. We don’t have cable and this sounds like a great option, specially when we are out and about or on a family trip. I will check Kidoodke Tv out, thanks!

  19. Not the worst mom ever ! I agree that TV Is a necessary distraction for kids to be safe and still for a bit so that we can get something done!! (The Wiggles got me lots of rest in the middle of the night when my son decided at 2 am that he was up for the day and boy oh boy did I need that 30 minutes of sleep!! I really do love this SAFE and TRUSTED way to give video entertainment to little ones. DEF have to check out Kidoodle-tv.
