Introducing Fooz Kids
Thank you to Fooz Kids for providing me with an All-In-One pack to review. The opinions I’ve expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint.
I am so pleased to introduce a wonderful parent controlled application. Fooz Kids is a download-able interactive tool for children. Fooz Kids teaches technology to children who are not yet as savvy as their blogger moms. It also allows the children to discover and learn in an environment that is safe.
I homeschool my children and at times I may send one child to the computer so I may engage one on one with another child. During the computer time I am unable to 100% monitor the actions and activities of my little one(s). Fooz Kids to the rescue! Fooz Kids is an interactive platform that is controlled by the parent (me) and introduces my children to approved games and learning that are appropriate for the child that is on the computer. The content is engaging and as well as enriching my children.
When I send my little one to the computer, I have complete control of what she sees and what she can play. All she simply needs to do is click on the pre-approved content, whether it be games, videos, crafts or web sites. She can also go to her virtual bedroom and decorate it to her liking. My older children have the ability to send e-mails to friends or family that are approved by me.
I also happen to really like the add-on Fooz Kids University feature, which introduces math activities for elementary aged children. I particularly like this feature since we homeschool and rote paperwork everyday gets a bit boring. I can reward each child with time on Fooz Kids for working hard during school. Little do they know but the Fooz Kids University is still school time! This is such a wonderful and FUN supplement to our regular classroom. In addition, I get a full report of each of my children's progress.
Another add-on feature is the Fooz Kids Flix. In this section I can download movies and short films which can be used during running errands. I have not had an opportunity to use this add-on feature but am excited to give it a try.
The best component of Fooz Kids is the Parental Dashboard. In this area, I get to control and monitor all aspects of activity for each of my children. This area is a password protected and allows me to select the age and gender appropriate content for each of my children. I monitor their activities, proofread their e-mails and approve their friends. My children are safely exploring the internet in a protected area.
Fooz Kids is available as a download for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems and is also compatible with Android tablets. Fooz Kids is available for a one time purchase of $11.99 with package subscriptions and additional features available for either a monthly or yearly commitment.
