KidzInMind App for Kids Review
As my daughter gets older, she is noticing the technology we use more and more and starting to gain a real interest in it. Which is great, I love her inquisitiveness! At the same time, I do worry about the safety of kids online as well as the huge risk for spending money. It’s just all too easy to buy online these days at the click of a button. This week we’ve had a brilliant opportunity to review a new app – KidzInMind.
Dubbed as a “safe digital playground filled with fun and educational apps for the growing minds of little children”, this app promises peace of mind to parents like me by providing apps, videos and games that are not only age-appropriate, but also educational. Win/win! It’s tailored for kids aged 2-6 years old so perfect for us and Miss approaches her 3rd birthday next year.
What also appealed to me is that there are no ads or hidden payments – a big plus.
It was super easy to download, I just visited the App Store and searched for KidzInMind.
KidzInMind is an “app of apps”! All apps included fit their strict criteria of being educations, free from advertising and with no hidden payments. It saves us the job of having to check every app thoroughly before allowing Miss M to look herself and as she gets older and wants to view even more new apps, this is going to be such a time-saver and reassuring for us.
There is a baby safe mode (I’m looking at you Mini M!) and no risk of bad language and the educational apps featured are fun, engaging and age-appropriate to your child’s stage of learning.
Some other great features include being able to time the amount of play you allow your child, restricting internet usage and restricting access to other apps. It’s about peace of mind for parents.
The KidzInMind app has also received the kidSAFE Seal, Mom’s Choice Award and was nominated Best Mobile App for Children and Toddlers in 2014!
KidzInMind have consulted parents, paediatrics, nutrition and education experts to curate a unique selection of the best apps for children and has over 40 apps to choose from with more being continually added weekly.
I love that the development of this app has been done in part by parents – they obviously get what our concerns are when allowing our kids to use apps for games and videos.
Miss M is at such a tender age where she is absorbing everything around her so it’s so important to us that the games she plays and things she watches are fun but also relevant and educational.
The KidzInMind 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 ($4.49 AUS) per month for unlimited access to the full app, video and game catalogue and all the parental safety controls.
