Yesterday my daughter and I spent a nice afternoon in NYC at the KidzVuz Holiday party. We were invited as media to check out new toys and other products for the holiday season. My daughter already attended the previous KidzVuz events and was very excited about what was waiting for her – toys, games, food and fun things to do there.
What is KidzVuz? KidzVuz.com is a safe alternative to YouTube for kids, video review sharing site for kids ages 7-13. It’s the ONLY online destination exclusively dedicated to letting tweens have their say and share their views about the stuff they love. Check them out by clicking the above link. Kids can register on their web site or app and upload videos of their product reviews. Their STAR REVIEWERS get all kinds of products in exchange for their honest reviews.
Few things that caught our eyes this year
Compose Yourself Music Card game (Create a world-class composition in minutes! No musical experience necessary)
Wubble Bubble – Looks like a bubble, plays like a ball
Macy’s Heart of Haiti: Heart of Haiti sells hand crafted Haitian goods in efforts to bring jobs and business to Haiti. The goal is to bring “trade-not-aid” meaning the best way to help Haiti is not to bring temporary help (through aid workers) but to build businesses and restore Haiti to its former self before the Earthquake in 2010.
Food for Thoughts Cards: Food for Thoughts Cards exists to spread good wishes and good will. With every purchase of a card (the cost is $3.25 for 1 card), the cash equivalent of one Peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich is donated to feed the hungry! One card = one sandwich.
TheSmartTalk.org: Your kid is awesome. Smartphones are awesome. But awkward conversations about online safety and privacy? The Smart Talk provides tips for:
- Determine if your child is ready to have smart phone
