REVIEW: Fooz Kids

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

My kids are always wanting to play games on the internet.
Especially my non-reading, barely five year old.
I get so tired of having to run to her side to navigate from one game to another every four minutes.
When I signed up for Foozkids that all changed!
She can now do a search of her own for which kids character she wants to play with and find a game including that specific character!

it is such a great idea! 
It keeps her entertained and doesnt require my constant attention.
Another thing that I love about it is that it sort of "locks" the computer so she cant close the program and get into anything else. In order to exit-not enter- the program I need to enter a password
It is SO great!
She can turn it on herself, but she can't get out of it and go exploring around the rest of the computer, or tainted internet ;)
I love that it is a G-rated world that she is stuck in.
