Though some of the songs have lightly educational content, the app is primarily for entertainment.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fruit Punch Music is a kid-friendly music-streaming service with music that can appeal to older kids and parents, too. Stations include themes like "Popcorn and Candy" for movie soundtracks "Top 40: Pop" for current radio hits (filtered for kid-appropriateness), as well as stations devoted to music from Disney stars or Nickelodeon shows. For more parent- and teen-friendly music, there are stations with music from the '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s. Users can skip only six songs per hour but can switch channels as often as desired. Parents can filter stations and set a daily time limit (up to two hours), and they can reset the day's usage. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

To use FRUIT PUNCH MUSIC, sign up for the free seven-day trial. Browse the stations, go to settings to choose daily time limit, filter stations, and subscribe. Tap play on a song, or tap the forward icon to skip a song (users can skip only six songs per hour total, if they remain). To "favorite" a song, tap the smile icon. Return to the stations page to choose another station. 

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.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about which stations your kid likes best on Fruit Punch Music. Ask your kid specific questions about the music they prefer. What makes that song interesting? Fun to listen to? What do the lyrics mean to them? 

  • Take turns choosing the stations you and your kid listen to in the car or while making dinner, and sing along together. The classical or '60s music stations may not interest kids at first, but once they tune in for a few songs, they may develop broader musical tastes.

  • Encourage kids to make their own music, too. Find fun digital music creation tools on Common Sense Media's Best music apps and games for kids list.
