)-- This latest KIDO'Z version (v2.0) takes Kids' Internet to the next level with its introduction of a unique social layer for kids, which boasts the first email system for young kids as well as a secure kid-friendly social networking platform.
In addition to enjoying the existing functionality of browsing safely, watching videos and playing games; kids can now create and send emails and e-cards even before they can read or write, and can safely interact with friends within a safe online environment.
Kids can express their creativity through the KIDO'Z MAIL system, which functions as a drawing board complete with animated backgrounds and stickers.
Each child is given his/her own virtual room, which, in true KIDO'Z style, can be customized according to his/her personal taste. Here, kids can interact with their KIDO'Z FRIENDS, who are pre-approved by parents, and can express themselves and their individuality. Kids can interact by visiting their FRIENDS' PLACES and by communicating with them through KIDO'Z MAIL.
The new version also introduces the first KIDO'Z Premium Package, KIDO'Z PLUS, which is available at a small monthly fee. KIDO'Z PLUS gives kids access to even more content, creativity and personalization capabilities; and gives parents even more security and control, with access to extra security features as well as to KIDO'Z STATISTICS, which gives parents detailed usage reports of their child's KIDO'Z usage.
With KIDO'Z version 2.0, kids can learn, explore, play and communicate on the Internet even before they have mastered reading or writing.
