I don’t know about you, but when my kids are getting a little “harry” and need some down time, I either turn on the TV or whip out the iPad to let them play games. I know, I know, it’s an easy fix but honestly, sometimes it just needs to happen. For example, the weekend before I had to go back to work, Mr. Fix-It had a wicked flu bug so I had to hold down the fort solo. With three little ones, a sick hubby and lots on my list to get done I needed the kids to have some down time. Kidoodle.TV saved the day!Heard of Kidoodle.TV? Essentially, it’s a website filled with shows that kids love and parents have control over. There are kids’ sitcoms, nature and wildlife shows and an educational series from a variety of sources. The parents create a profile for each child and can select which shows their children can watch or not watch. Another thing that I really liked was zero ads. No commercials telling my kids that they need every toy under the sun! You can also determine the length of viewing time. So, if 45 mins is all you want them to have, then you can set it at the limit. Pretty cool eh?
My kids love to use the iPad, so this way I know they are watching appropriate shows and they can work it themselves. Oh, and not only do they have some of my kids’ fav shows but there are some retro shows on there too. Remember Inspector Gadget? Jem?
