REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Get Safe Email for Kids at KidsEmail.org
UPDATE 7/28/2015: We are still using and LOVING KidsEmail! When my son sees me checking my email, he immediately asks to go check his. I signed him up for a few newsletters, such as those from Nick Jr. and some car magazines (his passion), and he loves seeing that he has new messages. As he uses it more and more, I don’t even really need to show him where to click–he has got the hang of it! I’m so glad we found this program.
KidsEmail is giving THREE readers 1 year of Kids Email (value of $38.95).
As my son gets older, he is definitely wanting to do things more and more on his own, and wanting a bit of privacy. At 6 years old, he has already learned some computer skills in his Montessori kindergarten classroom. I decided now was the perfect time to get him an email of his own.
KidsEmail.org is the perfect solution for kids who want the freedom of their own email address, and parents who want to be able to have some control over what their child sees. Parents have the option to choose who their child can email and who can email them. You can block senders, filter language and attachments, and so much more!
On the kids’ side, they get to pick a fun login name and customize what their email screen will look like. There are many designs to choose from–here are a few examples.
My son chose the “Racing Champion” template, as I knew he would. There are cool designs for both boys and girls, younger kids, tweens and teens.
Speaking of teens, with KidsEmail your child has the option to have his email grow along with him. As your child feels they might be getting a little old to have a “kiddie” email address, their account can be changed to a KMail.org address–but still allowing parents that monitoring option.
All of these features are available at one low price, and you can even get your first 30 days free! Try out the KidsEmail service free for the first month, then choose from one of the low priced subscription plans–as low as $2.99 a month.
(Please ignore my perpetually cluttered desk!)
My child thought it was so cool that he could have an email of his very own, and I could tell that he was proud of it and felt so grown up. It was very easy for him to understand the interface, and he got the hang of his inbox really quickly. He is already asking to check it every day!
If you’re looking for a safe, fun, highly customizable email for kids, look no farther than the award winning KidsEmail.org!
