{Cool for School} Zoodles ~ Safely entertain and Educate your child online


If your kids like to play games online, but you are always worried that they might click on or see something that they shouldn't than Zoodles is a website browser designed to make sure that never happens. The browser is free to use, but you can also upgrade your membership to premium for even more features and parental control to keep your kids safe while they play online.

The benefits of a premium membership include:

  • Play timer settings
  • Promote educational subjects (e.g. Math, Reading)
  • Block unwanted sites, shows, and games
  • Block content types (e.g. videos, printables)
  • Violence filtering
  • Parental Monitoring
  • Access to Parent Dashboard
  • Weekly educational reports showing the skills your child has been developing
  • Weekly activity reports showing your child's recent play history and top content

  • If you have more than one child, you can create a separate profile so that they can each have a list of age appropriate games. Your child will only have access to pre-screened games, with no pop up ads and a violence filter so that you have control over how much violence they are exposed to.



    Zoodles scours the web to find the best educational content out there and puts it all in one place in a safe, simple web browser that adapts to your child's age and skill level. By simply using the desktop or start menu icon your child will be able to enter a full-screen mode that will keep them from exiting out and finding inappropriate content or deleting files on your computer.

    My daughter loves that she is able to open Zoodles on her own to play the safe, fun learning games that she loves. I did notice when I get the weekly reports that it includes the time that the browser was left open without her playing (Such as overnight) If you want accurate reports of how long your child plays, make sure to close the browser each time they are finished. Instead of just pressing the X to exit out, you need to be able to type the word "quit" and my daughter is not able to do that on her own yet.


    Win it!
    All new users automatically get a free 14 day premium membership, but I have three, 3 month memberships to giveaway!

    My kids would love to win because they're games! I would love to win because said games are (whisper) educational.
