These days, kids start using smart technology so early. As a parent, I used to sometimes use my phone to show my children videos or let them play games. But I found it a little disconcerting, to be honest – I worried that they might end up accessing harmful websites by mistake, or delete my important data.
I have often found myself wishing there was some kind of app that could protect children from harmful contents, letting them play without causing me any worry. But, now, finally, my wish has come true!
The app is called Samsung Kids Mode. It lets parents turn their smartphones into safe, child-friendly devices where parents get to exercise full control.
Children love Kids Mode, a place where they can meet four cute animal friends. Kids Mode held a character giveaway, and I was lucky enough to win four stuffed toys.
The characters are: CroCro, the leader of the gang; Bobby, an artist who loves to draw; Lisa, a music fan; and Cooki, a kitchen aficionado.
My son Hyunbin loves all four, and he loves playing with them as part of Kids Mode.
Kids Mode lets parents choose the apps and contacts that they want their children to access. A lot of apps come bundled, and many of these are educational. For example, you can use drawing apps and have fun with the animal characters, brushing their teeth or helping them get dressed. It’s all great for preschoolers who are just starting to learn to do these things in real life.
As a parent, you can set a PIN number. Without this PIN, your children won’t be able to quit out of the app and stray upon potentially harmful contents.
Let’s take a look at some of basic features of Kids Mode.

Children can mark the apps they are interested in, and you can then have a look at their “requests” and decide if you’d like to download these apps or not.
There are lots of fun things for young learners to do. For instance, there, are a whole range of virtual musical instruments to play with, a voice recorder and even pictures to color in.

My son loves the Kids House – this is the place where children can interact with the animal characters, brushing their teeth, feeding them and so on. Children really like the animal characters.
They help children become familiar with the app, and to engage with it.
You can use it to access a whole range of child-friendly free and paid apps – all very high in quality. It is frequently updated, so there is always something new and fun for children to do.
