Kid-Safe Cartoons with Toon Goggles
Although I’m no longer teaching technology at school, I’m still very interested in kids and technology. It’s definitely a passion of mine. And W is all about the iPad and the computer even though he’s only 2! So it feels like I’m constantly checking out apps that might work well for him or for my students at school. Toon Goggles is my most recent discovery.
Toon Goggles is a children’s entertainment online channel and offers an unlimited amount of kid-safe cartoons. They are organized into 7 different categories including Boys, Girls, Action, Comedy, Preschool, Educational, and “Boom Goggles.” The Boom Goggles channel features cartoons created by children. There is something for every kid!
New cartoons are added each week on New Toon Tuesday! All content is parent-friendly and screened prior to being added to Toon Goggles. I know that is one thing that is always on my mind. While I think technology and kids are definitely a match, I want the things my child and students use to be safe.
I also love that app is free. And free registered users can watch up to 3 episodes of every show available. For $4.99 a month, you can upgrade to a premium membership and get unlimited access. The free account gave me enough experience with the app to know whether or not getting a premium membership would be worth it.
Not all apps let you see much with a free account so I loved that Toon Goggles really gave us the chance to explore.
I love knowing that W could watch anything on the app and it would be appropriate for him. It definitely helps me relax a little. We can also save his favorites by using the little heart icon. And we can even save cartoons to the Toon Box and watch them offline too! This could be a lifesaver when we’re traveling!
Oh and did I mention that the app is optimized for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad? That means W can use it on any of our devices. We happen to have one of each so it works out great for us. Easy to navigate, kid-safe content, and affordable? Sounds good to me. Because yes, I’ll admit that sometimes I just want to do the dishes and need something to occupy W!
Please tell me I’m not alone in that!
What features do you look for in apps for your kids?
