Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
It's challenging to find music that's appropriate for young kids and that parents won't find mind-numbing -- but this app does it. The individually curated songs (actually screened and approved, not curated via algorithm or word filter) are selected for kids as young as age 3, according to the developer, and they include a range of music from Top 40 hits, classical music, and bedtime songs to parent-enjoyable and kid-friendly tracks from the likes of Beck, Kelly Clarkson, Otis Redding, and the Beatles. There's also some great, lightly educational kids' music tracks on Fruit Punch Music from kid-centric musicians like Ella Jenkins and even "Kindie Bands." Some parents may argue that some songs included on some stations aren't exactly kid fare ("Paradise City" by Guns N' Roses made it onto the '80s station); for those parents, there's always the option to filter out individual stations. The free trial should give music aficionados of any age enough time to decide whether there's enough diversity of selection to be worth the $3.99/month or $24.99/year subscription.
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.
