He calls KIDO�Z, "His World"

For this review I used my son as the main reviewer. He was luke warm to the idea of going from the sites he is used to ( Playhouse Disney, Webkinz, ect), I really thought this review was going to be a disaster. I was pleasently surprised when he dove right in. I was able to look over his shoulder and not be right on top of him hitting ads to websites and pop ups! He doesn't call it by it's given name, but calls it, "His World" where he can play with Hot Wheels and other car games online. The browser os so much more than race cars though, but he really likes all the different racing games they have on there. And since it is our review, that is what it is all about!

There is a plethora of games that are gender neutral, and are specifically placed on the children friendly site called KIDO�Z. This site takes the best and most kid friendly from around the internet letting the children browse games, videos and sites geared only to them. No pop ups, no fear of salacious adult or even age inappropriate content, this is one of the best kid friendly browsers I have some across.

Many of you know I am very picky of the content that my son can surf through. Even Playhouse Disney ticks me off because of the pop ups, and don't even get me started on Noggin! There aren't those issues here.

Here are some facts about the site:

  • KIDO'Z brings the internet in a safe and easy way to kids
  • Kids can safely and independently surf sites, play games, and watch Youtube videos
  • Parents can adjust security settings and can customize content
  • UI is available in 17 languages and content is available in over 160 languages

One complaint, I can't get him off the computer as easy as I used to be able too! And since there are many sites bunched up on here you will likely hear the "I want..." once or twice after they play it.

Oh and did I mention the site is free? So don't just take MY word for it, try it yourself!

Did the gorilla attacked box during shipping?

Scale of 1(worst)-5(best) breakdown.

Shipping speed: Surprisingly fast-5
Status out of the box: Little scratched up, box ruined-3.5
Playability/fun for son-5
Worth the money: 5

My son is collecting the Imaginext toys, he loves them. He has been looking at this toy for a while, I just wasn't wanting to pay 20 bucks for it. Finding this one on sale for 10 dollars was a deal I couldn't pass up! He loves the toy. I was only put off by the fact that the box was more than tattered. Ripped, torn, and falling apart. All and all it was a deal, BUT Walmart needs to be more careful with the open toy packaging. Or make sure the gorilla doesn't get flustered in the shipping process and destroy the box.
