Zoodles Review & GIVEAWAY



This website is AWESOME! 
I love playing games with Avery, but sometimes she wants to play games while I'm making dinner, or trying to get in the shower, or feeding the dog. ETC! It's never ending. She LOVES games and I love playing games with her, but it's not always practical!
In comes Zoodles. We've had a membership with zoodles for a little over a week now and I'm really liking it. 

It is free to play and there is no need for a membership, but the membership allows you to track your children's games, limit their time on the computer, as well as block some games you don't want them playing!

I have Barney, Transformers, and a few others blocked on Avery's because I don't want her playing them. It also allows me to see how long she spends at which game, and how long she's played in which subjects. Right now It's telling me Math-4 minutes, Reading-23 minutes, Life Skills-8 Minutes, Social Studies-0 minutes, Science-4 minutes, Cognitive Development-32 Minutes, Creative Development-34 minutes.
So as you can see it's VERY detailed and it maps out all the stuff for you even while you're not there. 

It basically is a website that has all game sites in one. It links to Nick Jr. Disney, Fisher Price and all those other fun sites. But it also has LOTS of others I would've never thought of and that don't show up in Google. It's totally worth the money in my opinion!

Another feature I really liked it that You have to download the browser and when you open it from your desktop, your child can't just close out of it... You have to type a special word to get out. So it's set up VERY safely and they really have though of EVERY angle possible. 
I feel safe that she's on my computer, but learning and not clicking around where I don't want her. I don't want her deleting pictures or telling all my facebook friends I hate them... I like knowing that she's stuck in Zoodles game world for however long so I can cook dinner in peace. Heck she even played 2 games while I was in the shower yesterday. It's better than T.V.

Price: $7.95 a month. $39.95 for 6 months, and A very reasonable $59.95 for a YEAR!! I think this is a great price. and I will continue to pay this. I think Zoodles will go hand in hand with Homeschooling come fall!

Overall: Out of 5 I give it a ********** yep a 10 star. I haven't found anything I haven't liked yet and It's promoting education and development which I'm all about!


 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*

Can't believe there are no entries! My son would LOVE this!! I'll take all 5 if no one enters! ;)

I LOVE that it blocks ads!! All the other sites like pbs.org have the ads! I think he would love the Bingo game!

I love the fact that I can see exactly what subjects the games are working on, like math, reading, etc. What a great site, thanks for introducing me to it.

The feature I like best is the ad-blocking browser. The Chinese Word Matching game looks fun!
