Inquisitive Minds today launched Zoodles, a web browser designed just for kids in that they can play and learn without parental supervision.
Zoodles runs on Adobe Air and is supposed to provide the best, and most safe browsing experience for children aged 2 through 8. The team at Inquisitive Minds has created filters that will block out bad, unwanted sites and allow kids to play games on approved sites. Parents are welcome to change the filters at their own discretion as well.
The two other browsing platforms, Glubble and Kidzui, are a bit different than Zoodles as it provides options for kids not yet seen before. Parents sign up for the service, input the child’s age and that is all the setup that is required. There are no manual filters to set or sites to approve. The application will display approved sites in a graphical format for the children to enjoy. The sites shown on Zoodles are hand-picked by experts in education. As the child gets older, the application will automatically show newer sites and applications for them to use.
As of now, Zoodles is offered in a paid version or premium subscription at $55.95 a year. You can check it out at the new Zoodles website.
