Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Don't assume for kid safe streaming

I trusted that Kidoodle was safe for my kid to watch unsupervised. To my unpleasant surprise, my 8 year old came running to me claiming that he heard the Sh** word on a show he was watching where two players are playing video games. After viewing the video in its entirety, I found that the Sh** and the F*** words were both used and fully displayed on the subtitles in case there was any confusion about what words were actually spoken. I'm highly disappointed with Kidoodle as it markets itself as a safe space for your kids to browse and watch videos for them. I have not seen this instance on any other videos I've seen which is why I've rated the streaming service as I did. I would advise that parents stick around in the event that the curse words are elsewhere in the app.

The free app

I like the free app. I discovered it on my Vizio smart tv. But here is the thing. The political ads playing on it is not child apropriet talking about cheating on his wife and hurting his family. I dont like that. But the rest is great
