Zoodles: A Safe Place for Your Children to Play Educational and Fun Online Games (Giveaway)

I was recently introduced to a wonderful new site for kids that is worry-free for parents! It’s called Zoodles, and it is chock full of fun games for children aged 8 and under. The games are educational, and the Zoodles browser is free! If you upgrade to a low-cost membership, you’ll have access to additional parental settings, such as a play timer, a violence filter, ad-blocking, and the ability to block/promote content based on subjects you want your child to focus on. You’ll even get reports on your child’s progress! When you sign up, you get the Premium Membership free for a limited time to enable you to decide if you want to stick with the basic membership or keep the premium features.

I love how parents and children can browse games by age or grade, subject, branded character, and more. This makes it easy to search for very specific games and categories, such as “6 year old reading games” or “PBS Kids first grade games.” Check out this brief video to learn more about Zoodles.

My six-year-old twins really love the Zoodles site. They’ve found all kinds of games they love, especially those with their favorite Nick Jr. and PBS Kids characters! And I really like that they’re playing games that are age-appropriate and designed to teach them important concepts like foreign languages, math, and more. I hope you’ll check out Zoodles with your kids!
