Limitations

KidRocket is a Flash based web browser especially designed for kids. It works in a very simple way: instead of letting the browser have access to the whole WWW and then try to filter out bad content, KidRocket blocks out the entire Internet and only allows the kids to access certain child related websites.

The program works well, it's very easy to use and features a really eye-catching interface. The only downside to KidRocket is the fact that you cannot edit the list of allowed websites.

Take a look at what this kid browser has to offer:

  • Fun, family friendly web sites for kids
  • Integrated Starfall reading program
  • Interactive math flashcards
  • Configurable math equations
  • Customizable browser colors (almost 250 possible variants)
  • Time in Use: timer
  • Digital Clock
  • Built-in popup blocker

My son's school uses this browser and we are not happy. He has access to Cartoon Network, he is only 2.5 years old. He does not really understand how to use the computer, but the older kids in his class (around 6 years old) do and they are watching TV shows that a 2.5 year old should not see. We are currently trying to get the school to remove this browser, or if the company that makes the browser can release a safe version that would be fine.

Pros
  • Some of the programming is good young children.
Cons
  • Glitches and sometimes does not load pages
  • Shows Cartoon Network, which is not ok for young children
