I have been asked what technology we allow Pixie to use. To be honest, she has access to all the technology in the home. We are very picky as to what we install on the PC’s, smart phones and tablet, so everything she uses is age appropriate.You can view our favourite Android applications HERE.
We are still using Zoodles for all the kidlets. Though the older 3 prefer to either work on their PC or the Wii, they still occasionally ask to play on the tablet. We do not have Zoodles on the kids’ PC because it doesn’t support Linux. More on our choice of Linux for the Kidlets’ PC later.
