We all want our kids to be safe online. Zuzee offers a creative, monitored space for tween girls to get creative and share with friends. Launched this week, Zuzee.com lets tweens share photos, connect with friends, and create lasting memories.
The site allows girls to upload photos from their phones or cameras. Then they can essentially "scrapbook" the photos by adding text, artwork, and other colorful additions. When I tested out the software, I found it very easy to use. Targeting girls 8-12, I'm pretty confident an 8 year old could do it alone and my 6 year old could work the program with me there to supervise). Right now girls can share the pages with friends. Eventually the plan is for the photobooks to be the end product.
To keep things interesting, each month Zuzee plans to add new design templates covering popular themes such as friendships, birthdays, pets, holidays, mom & me, and more. Plus there are interactive quizzes, virtual gifts, icons, and more to enjoy.
Of course, when I met with one of the founders during an NYC press trip, I was assured that Zuzee has built in "robust parental controls to ensure maximum safety and privacy." Zuzee uses an invitation-only approach; friends can'??t be added and designs or photos can'??t be shared without parent consent first.
Basic membership is free. For a limited time, girls can get an all-access pass to Zuzee. After the introductory period, members can continue enjoying the all access Z Pass with an annual subscription for $39.95 or $4.99 per month.
