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

Educational Value

Kids can learn about subjects from physics to phonetics on Zui.com. The site includes games that focus on puzzle solving, strategy, and logical thinking as well as fashion and music games that tap into users' creativity.  There are also video lessons for playing the guitar, healthy eating and exercise, and even instructors demonstrating math problems or science experiments.  Some topics (like history or science) can be found only through a search. Most educational content is buried beneath pop music videos and princess dress-up games.

Positive Messages

Allows younger kids to safely get their feet wet browsing videos online.

Violence & Scariness

Short video clips of boxing matches and UFC fights. Shooting games are cartoony with very mild violence. 

Sexy Stuff

Some kissy stuff. Video footage of The Royal Wedding kiss and a game called "Angel's kiss make up" are included.


One sporting video includes the phrase "kickass."


Chock-full of music videos by popular artists and movie clips from Disney. Although this site does not provide areas for purchasing merchandise, kids will be interested in searching further to buy games, movies, and more. There are also opportunities to win prizes based on how frequently users utilize the site.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Includes video footage of peace officers and search canines looking for drug paraphernalia.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Zui.com is an entertaining and educational site where younger kids can safely browse videos online. The site offers a search function where kids can look up any topic they desire, and are then provided with pre-approved videos to watch and games to play. If the area of interest is not age-appropriate, the site informs users that no matches were found. Some of the most popular videos are of Justin Bieber, gymnastics, and skateboarding. The most frequently played games are Bubble Bugs, Racoon Crash, and City of the Month. Zui.com is both fun and educational. The site is targeted toward younger kids and uses large photos and icons so that searching is simple. Parents should be aware that external links may lead users to unprotected sites.

Is it any good?

Zui.com can is a site that parents can direct their kids to -- that kids will be excited to explore. Age-apporpriate videos from their favorite pop-icons, skateboard trick demos, and instructional videos from teens and adults alike,  PLUS games galore. 

One of the great features about the site is that through the search engine kids can sift through their own personal areas of interest -- search for "Native American" and find videos of interviews with Lakota among the 90+ videos. The search engine offers videos that are "related" and "suggested" based on what you're watching. Also, multiple categories may intrigue users in accordance to their original search. For example, when looking up a video about "Ancient Greece" the site lists links to videos about Rome, Hatshepsut, and pyramids as further areas of interest.

  • Families can also discuss staying safe online. Who can you trust and who is it OK to share information with?
