Fooz Kids Launches the World's First Kid Safe Browser Built for Kids by MomsEmbedded Into 30 Million PCs and 90 Million USB Drives (May 25, 2010)
EL SEGUNDO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/25/10 -- Fuhu, Inc. announced today the release of Fooz Kids (www.foozkids.com). Fooz Kids is a FREE, kid-safe web surfing application that delivers pre-screened Internet content in a safe, fun and kid-friendly way, giving children the means to discover new websites, games, videos and crafts as well as the ability to create their own avatars and personalize virtual rooms with toys and furniture.
The product will be embedded into over 30 million PCs and 90 million USB drives as well as available as a free download at http://www.foozkids.com. The company will leverage its massive distribution channel across 3-screens (PC, mobile, TV) to deliver to millions of kids a new safe way of Internet discovery. The company is also in conversations with large retailers to be available in store.
Fooz Kids is controlled by parents. Parents can block or allow specific content based on their child's age and monitor their child's Internet activity all through a password-protected parental control system. Since Fooz Kids blocks all ads, links and scripts from being viewed, parents never have to worry about their children viewing content not authorized by them.
Fooz Kids is a virtual sandbox for children. With over 750 features to choose from, kids can create their virtual look-a-like with the Fooz Kids avatar creator. In addition, kids can customize their virtual room in style with Fooz Kids Places.
"As children spend more time online, we recognize the importance for children to discover and explore the Internet in a safe environment. And, there's no better way to feel safe than to have an environment that parents can control," said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu, Inc. "Fooz Kids is committed to providing parents and children with a way to safely discover and explore the Internet together."
Fooz Kids is available as a free download for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
