If you have a kid who's over the age of say, four, then chances are your kid is asking for a smartphone or tablet (or borrowing yours on a regular basis). So you're probably sick of handing over your phone or tablet and risking child-induced damage or having them accidentally delete important alerts, messages, pictures, or apps.
And perhaps you don't want them having unfettered access to the internet, even with supervision! Besides, don't you want to be sure that any smart device you give your kid is actually making them smarter or helping them use their brain? It's tempting enough for grown-ups to get sucked into time-wasters on the internet, after all. Kids might be even more susceptible to web-based distractions that ultimately don't benefit anyone.
"Smarter" Tech For Kids
But there's a solution out there and we think it's a better one than simply limiting their access and setting a time limit on their computer, tablet or smartphone usage. And besides, kids are devious and clever, so simply monitoring them as they surf the web is probably not going to work - they'll discover ways around your supervision! So look for devices that come with filtering options so you can pre-select what sites they can browse and eliminate access to non-kid-safe sites.
And as a parent you can feel confident that your kids aren't just playing around, thanks to the device's focus on fun learning games, the ability to take photos and videos, text approved friends on their KidiBuzz™ devices, play music, and more. Useful for road trips, indoor and outdoor fun, and any other time! Note that some of the functions including texting and web browsing are dependent on WiFi access.
Tech You Can Feel Good About As A Parent
Every parent wants their kid to have every advantage - and that includes not just playing with technology, but also learning while using it and getting comfortable with devices they'll need to understand to succeed in the future.
Which is why it is so important for you to find tech toys and smart devices that have certain features. For instance, the ability to filter the websites your kids visit, the phone numbers or user names they can connect with, and the types of games and other activities they can do all make a difference as to how your kids will grow and develop alongside the tech that's available to them.
Hence the creation of the KidiBuzz™ by VTech, which fits all of the above requirements and more. And the games and apps it comes with are both fun and educational - so they won't just be wasting their time on mindless games or internet time wasters. Plus you can pre-program the sites they'll be allowed to visit, so no worries there!
And isn't that something that you can feel good about?
