2011 HGG~ Playrific review & giveaway

With three kids in the house, and all of them learning to use the computer better at school, we have been using up a lot of internet time here at home. One thing I really dislike about that is that i have to hover over their shoulders just to make sure they don’t end up on a site that they aren’t supposed to. Granted, there are safe sites for them, but I still worry.

Recently I was given the opportunity to test out Playrific, and let me tell you I am in love! Playrific is basically digital computer software that enables you to feel safe about what your younger children are viewing on the internet.
You just download the “Child Console” which is a software application that resides on whichever PC or Mac your child will be using. The application creates a “gated” browser that prevents children from clicking on other links or exiting safe websites. It features an intuitive, graphical interface that children interact with to explore videos and clips, play interactive games, read engaging books & stories and more – all on their own. The kids love it, although they wish there were more games and less videos!!

Child Console

You can go to the subscriber website http://www.playrific.com and from there YOU determine what your children can see on the console. Have a kindergartner that is learning a specific letter this week? No problem, just find games, videos and even some books that focus on that letter and you are set. You can also delete anything that you believe your child has mastered and just add in new things. At this time, I notice that you can only add three children ( unless you purchase a separate subscription).
I love having the ability to do daily things while the kids are online playing, and I don’t have to worry about them going to a different site as you can’t close the Child Console without typing in the password.

Playrific offers different activities within the child console to access:

  • Full-length movies, like Benji™ or VeggieTales™
  • TV show episodes, from classic Yogi Bear™ to award-winning Pocoyo™
  • Short clips, from funny animals to scientific experiments
