  • ZuiTube lets kids explore only age-appropriate YouTube videos
  • No email, chat or text
  • Parental controls allow you to monitor what your kids have been doing on Kidzui
  • Cons: Can be quite busy visually, asks kids to upgrade to join 'cool' premium paid version
  • Free, but contains commercial content
  • Competitors to Kidzui include KidRocket (very limited number of websites for kids plus PC desktop protection from little fingers) and Kido'z (new kids browser for very young kids, very simple and more limited number of sites available to kids)

WebKinz Jr.
  • Bigger kids love the original Webkinz which allows kids to "adopt" (buy) a stuffed animal. The animals come with a Code for the website where your child can care for the virtual pet, play games, and earn and spend “KinzCash” to buy clothes and furniture for the pet's room
  • Webkinz Jr. is similar, but is tailored for preschoolers and is easier to navigate
  • Kids love Webkinz and Webkinz Jr.
  • But, be aware that it can lure your kids in for long periods of time, and the site encourages spending. Make sure to set time limits and to monitor usage
  • Commercial site
