There's a great variety of high-quality audio content for young kids packaged together in this easy to use app. Granted, it may be a challenge to get some kids into audio content when there are so many visually stimulating options out there. But, Kinderling Kids Radio has lots to offer, which can make it more likely that most kids will find something appealing. There's fiction, classic stories, weird science explorations, silly jokes, and lots of music. Some classic stories have fun modern twists, such as Rapunzel who, in Kinderling Kids Radio's version, isn't simply a damsel in need of saving. Content that comes in languages other than English boosts its value, too. And, content ranges in length from a few minutes to a half hour or more, which makes it easy to fit into whatever window of available time you have during your daily routine. It's nice that content is categorized by timely utility -- such as on a car ride or as a bedtime story. But, not all families will find those classifications right for them. For example, the bedtime stories are often classic tales rather than super calming, sleep inducing meditative narratives. Though the majority of content requires a subscription to listen to, there's actually enough available with the free download that families might find they can get away without the 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.
