Homeschool Crew Review: Smart Kidz Radio

We’re in the car a lot, so we love to listen to audio stories.  Recently, we decided to try out a new service from Smart Kidz Media, Smart Kidz Radio.

About Smart Kidz Radio

Smart Kidz Radio
Smart Kidz Radio plays child-friendly music that your kids can enjoy.  This service is recommended for kids ages 2-10, and kids can fill out a form to request a song they’d like to hear, which I’m sure most kids would enjoy doing.

In addition to music, they also have several podcasts averaging 15 to 20 minutes each, which are retellings of famous fairy tales such as Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, and Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves.  The best thing about Smart Kidz Radio is that it is offered absolutely free!

In addition, they offer an On Demand service for $3.99 per month or $39.00 for an annual subscription.  There is also a 14-day trial that you can take advantage of.  The On Demand service offers hundreds of songs and stories.  The story selections include Bible stories, Grandpa Tyler’s story time, and Peter Rabbit tales, just to name a few.

Our Experience with Smart Kidz Radio

The girls and I listened to both songs and stories with this program.  The songs were light, catchy, and uplifting.  However, my girls are on the high end of the recommended age range, so I don’t think they were the best fit.  I would have loved this program if my girls were younger, maybe 4 to 7 years old.

We listened to a few of the fairy tale podcasts, but the sound effects were very realistic in Treasure Island (with a drunk sailor singing in what she deemed a scary voice), and Cuddle Bug (8 years old), who is scared very easily, found it too scary to listen to completely.   However, the vast majority of the podcasts were easy listens.  My 9 year old didn’t think they would be scary for most kids who were 6 and older, just Cuddle Bug since she scares so easily.

If you’d like to find music and podcasts that you’re kids can listen to without causing you to worry about content, you’ll likely be happy with Smart Kidz Radio.
