Smart Kidz Radio Membership (Review)

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

Somewhere over the last two years, our family seems to have become a music family. I have never been a musician but always enjoyed listening to music. However, over the last couple of years my children have started playing instruments and become very interested in listening to a wide variety of music. They listen while we ride, while they do schoolwork, my son even bought headphones to listen while he cuts the grass.  We have a variety of CDs and there are several local Christian stations they can listen to, however, my older children really wanted a bit more variety. I wanted to encourage that variety while also making sure that the music they listened to was appropriate and also did not have inappropriate advertising.  I was excited to review Smart Kidz Radio and see how it would work for our family.

When we received our subscription to the Smart Kidz Radio: Member’s On-Demand Radio Program Library, I was not sure if it would have good content for my fourteen-year-old son since it is geared towards students in elementary and middle school. However, we decided that everyone would give it a try and see what they thought. Turns out that all three of my children that tried it, enjoyed it.

Each of them logged in from their computers or devices. From there they could pick which programs they wanted to listen to. There were stories, classical music, music from various cultures, music from specific decades, sing and learn programs, living skills, learning Spanish, and even some Bible and Inspirational songs.

For my six-year-old audio book lover, his favorite part was the stories. He was able to listen to a variety of stories including Fairy Tales, Nursery Tales, and another program titled Grandpa Tyler’s Storytime. His favorite was Peter Pan but he enjoyed listening to many of them.

For my twelve-year-old daughter, America’s Heritage in Song-Smart Kidz Boyz Choir and Golden Oldies 50s were her favorites. She enjoyed the diversity and said, “I liked the big selection of songs and audio books as well as the fact that it is clean for young listeners.” If she could have changed anything, she would have liked to have the lyrics shown on the screen.

My fourteen-year-old son is the one with the most eclectic music tastes and also the one who spends them most time listening to music. He appreciated that there was a lot of different types of music and his favorite was the Country Classics Show. He says, “I would recommend it for nearly anyone who likes different types of music or stories.” While I don’t think this will ever be his only source of music, we both appreciated the chance for him to try a variety of music in a safe format.

In addition, to providing families with a good variety of music and stories, Smart Kidz Radio has a foundation that “will financially support programs that give opportunities to young people to make a difference by following their career dreams and use their talents to make the world a better place.” They donate 20 % of membership fees to the Smart Kidz Foundation. 

Overall, I think Smart Kidz Radio is a great program for a family that wants to encourage musical interests, enjoy a variety of music, and want to have a safe place to explore different styles of music. I love that there is so much variety and educational content, but also a variety of fun songs.
