Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 12, 2011
Fuhu, Inc. is pleased to introduce the world’s first parent-controlled, kid-approved application, Fooz Kids. Available in 36 different languages in 56 countries, Fooz Kids is an interactive tool for children that introduces them to technology, and allows them to create, connect, discover and learn in an environment that is safe and age-appropriate.
Versatile in its offerings and functions, Fooz Kids basic features includes games, web browsing, videos, crafts, parent-approved e-mails to friends or family, the ability to create an avatar and customize a virtual bedroom, and more. Coming in a number of forms, the application's content incorporates familiar, child-loved characters in a welcoming environment that makes kids feel comfortable every step of the way. In addition to the many features that come with the application, there are also add-ons that parents can subscribe to, to further stimulate and engage their child. One such add-on is the Fooz Kids University feature, which introduces mathematical exercises aligned with school curriculum from Pre-K to 5th Grade. This feature is a great supplement to classroom learning and provides parents with an in-depth report on their child’s progress. Another add-on feature is the Fooz Kids Flix, which allows parents to download both full length movies and shorter films that are perfect for a car ride. All aspects of Fooz Kids are controlled by way of the Parental Dashboard – a password-protected area that enables parents to select age and gender-appropriate content for their children, monitor their academic activities, take a peek at their creations, access e-mails and approve friends.
“As technology is becoming more accessible, we recognize the importance for children to discover and explore the internet in a safe and protected environment,” said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu, Inc. “We’ve created Fooz Kids as an interactive platform that is parent-controlled and introduces children to entertainment and learning capabilities that are appropriate for them. Fooz Kids is committed to providing parents with content that not only engages their children but also contributes to their overall development.”
Fooz Kids is available as a download for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems and is also compatible with Android tablets. Fooz Kids is available for a one time purchase of $11.99 with package subscriptions and additional features available for either a monthly or yearly commitment.
