I had never heard of this game and was curious to see how they were going to play. It turns out it was just like it sounds, one of them writes a sentence full of mistakes and the other corrects it. They had a great time doing this and went back and forth for about an hour. I was amazed they found this fun and was impressed with how challenging they made the sentences and how they could solve them pretty quickly.
Needless to say, since they enjoy learning so much I make sure to infuse as much of their playtime and screen time with learning. That’s why I was excited about Kidobi. After using our provided premium version for a few weeks, I am happy to say that Kidobi is one of my favorite sites for the kids!
The video selection is massive and include clips from Sesame Street, Animal Atlas, Telmo and Tula, Pocoyo, and much more.
Kora and Logan have been enjoying the videos immensely. One of their favorites is this short Solid, Liquid, Gas clip. It’s a catchy song that helps them remember which is which and why.
They’ve also been enjoying learning their multiplication tables through a cute song. It’s fun watching them bopping and singing along to the song. I wish there had been such a fun way to learn multiplication when I was kid!
Here’s a video of Kora & Logan watching a Kidobi playlist of videos. It gives you a good feel for the content and quality of the videos as well as the fun the kids have while they watch the videos and sing along:
While you can watch each video individually, it’s very easy to set up playlists. This way the kids can watch for the allotted time you’d like without your having to load separate videos every few minutes. It’s a wonderful feature and I made a video showing you how it works here:
I like how easy the site is to use and the amount of videos that are available. As you can see from the video above you can easily search for specific videos in any number of ways: popularity, age, rating, category, and more.
I know that not all children are as enthusiastic about learning as Kora & Logan and that’s ok. I believe that Kidobi offers something that would capture the attention of any child. With it’s wide range of videos you’re sure to find videos that your child will enjoy. From learning about animals, to how they build construction equipment, to drawing classes and everything in between there truly is something for everyone.
Here’s a video of Kora & Logan sharing their thoughts about Kidobi and whether they think other children would enjoy the site:
As you can see they love the site and I look forward to making many playlists for them this summer to enjoy on rainy days. Kidobi is available online at www.kidobi.com, for the iPad, and as Android app. We recommend it to anyone with children in their lives, I have yet to see another site with such a high quality combination of fun and educational video content that kids love.
It is sure to be a fun summer and I can’t wait to hear the interesting animal, science, and drawing facts Kora & Logan will learn from Kidobi as well as listen to them running around the house singing, “Solid….Liquid…Gas!” or “1 times 3 is 3…1 times 4 is 4…!” I admit that I’m a bit afraid the songs will get stuck in my head, but maybe I learn a thing or two along the way too.
What about you? What types of videos do the children in your life enjoy watching?
