A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

KidMango is a part of MyFamilyTV, a larger initiative to provide positive programming for children.

Violence & Scariness

Offerings are categorized by age-appropriateness on the site. Some of the 8+ offerings have some violence and iffy content (aliens, vampires, scary sharks, etc. - but all in cartoon form).

Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The site was in beta when reviewed, but it appears that users will be offered commercial opportunities related to the content they are watching in the accompanying links section.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

There is no drinking, drugs or smoking in KidMango content.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site offers a huge range of mostly positive cartoons for kids preschool age to 8+. The site allows unrestricted use and access to all areas. While all content on the site is considered appropriate for children under the age of 13, parents should watch alongside younger children.

Is it any good?

The KidMango Web site is part of MyFamilyTV, a programming initiative aimed at buying and consolidating blocks of children's entertainment that parents can feel safe having their kids watch. Shows range from goofy, fun kids' entertainment to highly educational fare; some are brand new and some are very, very old (like Dennis the Menace) The content is divided into recommended ages, and kids and parents can decide which content is acceptable for their own tastes. At present, this is it for the site -- there is no interaction, no chat, no user-generated content. But as a good, clean, nice-looking place for kids to watch videos of their favorite shows, KidMango achieves its goal.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • What is "good" entertainment and what isn't? Many of the shows here have strong, positive messages -- which stand in stark contrast to those which are purely entertainment driven.

  • Families can also talk about setting limits on computer time. Because of the vast amount of content here, and the unrestricted nature of the site, it can be very easy to spend a lot of time here.
