There are many sources for videos on the internet, and many have games, information, as well as tons of not-appropriate-for-kids videos.  Whether because of violence, nudity, language, or other some such nonsense, I would like to keep my son away from such videos for a s long as possible, but also still be able to take advantage of an Internet’s fun and educational aspects (as well as entertaining videos).

pic5There is an App available now for iOS devices including the iPad, which acts as a child friendly portal to all things kid safe. This includes videos on the internet from well known TV channels and important topics like the solar system, dinosaurs, sharks, weather, cultural exploration, and (of course) puppies.  Each has tons of videos especially for little ones.  There is also a customizable desktop available, as well as a timer and parental controls to keep your little ones from using the app more then you’d like them to.  I can appreciate parental controls which are easy to apply- most, as we know, are next to impossible to set up.


A bit more about Flare Kids:

“Flare launched free video app, Flare Kids, which changes the playing field for kids’ mobile video. The Flare Kids app, available at the App Store, offers some of the most popular programming for kids aged three to eight that can be downloaded on any iPad. This new offers boasts the most secure functionality on the market, where parents can create custom profiles to control what kids are watching as well as set in app time limits. Kids can watch their favorite shows and the parents don’t need to worry about monthly fees.”

The interface is easy to navigate especially for kids, but its also simple to navigate for adults too.  Sometimes, they are smarter then us.  Admit it.


I would definitely suggest this free app to all iOS devices owners who let their children use the devices as well.  It makes video watching a breeze and lets your kids enjoy the appropriate entertainment.
