They cannot surf the Web to other sites or get into any of your adult files. Kids are locked into the site until a parent enters a password to unlock them and the computer. Parents can even set a timer to limit how long kids can play online. Add-on Smart Keys come in two-character packs for $7.

They recommend that children over age two have no more than one to two hours a day in front of media screens.
