Editors' review

With access to a few dozen preapproved child-friendly sites, Kids Web Menu offers parents a sheltered hub for young kids to safely and easily explore the Internet. Links to sites featuring online games, education, and popular cartoon toys and icons are presented in two themes, and parents keep content choices locked up with a password key. If parents don't mind being kept from approving additional sites and minimizing the app, and if they don't mind exposing their kids to in-app advertising from sponsoring sites, Kids Web Menu is a good option for first-time surfers.

    "Has my 3 YEAR OLD! surfing the Net (and safely!)"

    June 05, 2009   |   By sparkflash

    Version: Kids Web Menu 1.5

    Pros

    Completely visual interface for non-readers.

    Cons

    Can't wait for the Mac version !

    Summary

    I was a bit sceptical if our 3 year old daughter would be able to use this, but it passed with flying colors. Navigation is all visual, so there's no trouble if your child can't read - and a lot of the included websites are also friendly for non-readers. Plan on spending about 20 minutes showing your child the basics, and watch things take off from there. Includes lots of sites that teach reading, counting, colors, and problem solving. I also believe using the mouse helps youngsters build hand-eye coordination!

    "Clever navigation makes this browser "game-like""

    June 21, 2008   |   By hotchickensoup

    Version: Kids Web Menu 1.5

    Pros

    Not sure if this is a pro or con, but this browser is so fun and easy for our 5-year old that she is becoming addicted to the Internet. The fact that this software is free (and no subscriptions) is nice for a change!! But hey, it's summertime - be sure to send your kids out to play too! ;)

    Cons

    If the next version could have a timer for parents limit their kid's time on the computer, that would be great!

    "Fantastic,Safe, Child Friendly must have program!"

    June 20, 2008   |   By BillK1958

    Version: Kids Web Menu 1.5

    Pros

    Very easy to set-up as a parent. Easy to navigate for children. Our child spends hours surfing the browser secure and safe from the dangers that we all know exist out there on the web.

    Cons

    It would be good if the program could not be closed by the child without maybe a password entered by an adult. Like anything else, parental over-site is always recommended.
