Great option!

This is a great app with variety so my kids are happy no matter what! They customize the content per age so my 7 yr old has different things than the 4 year olds!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Many parents want to hand their smartphone to their kids to keep them busy in the grocery checkout line or the car, but there's the lingering worry that kids will tap on something inappropriate or mess up the phone in some way. KID MODE: KIDS GAMES + VIDEOS helps protect your kid and your phone through many filter and lock options, as well as kid-friendly game, video, storybook, and art options. But parents have to use the Parent Dashboard to make this app truly effective; it can be managed from the Zoodles website. Glitches and crash reports vary by Android model.

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.
