YOU PAID A LOT for the tablet, so why not also give your preschooler and older kids the tremendous richness of the Internet? And free!

IF YOU ARE LIKE MOST PARENTS, you're still not sure about your kids going online. Now meet ZillyDilly: The only app (or anything ever) to actually put a child-healthy "Internet in a Box" right into your hands to manage.

ZILLYDILLY IS YOUR CONFIDENCE-BUILDING PARENTING TOOL: Age-precise and safe. Stimulate curiosity, imagination, and skills and have fun online together - with greater variety of pre-evaluated sorted games and knowledge than is possible with any other single app.

- We inspect, organize, and simplify; you can preview and select (or just quickly select our picks) before anything reaches your child.
- You monitor/control remotely with any online device, even turning off the Internet.
- Securely keep your child inside sites.
- Get instant reports of time spent on sites.
- Timers encourage time management, balance, and limit potential for addiction.
- Flexibly override and customize presets.


- Do you know that of the millions of free Internet sites only a few thousand are actually good for kids on iPads?

- The ZillyDilly team carefully hand-picks the best sites for the iPad, as a trusted grocer offering only quality items.

- Just as food groups and limiting dessert balance a diet, ZillyDilly balances Growth Opportunities with Entertainment:
1. Family Relationships
2. Socialization
2. Values 
4. Education

- ZillyDilly then
1. Either "serves" your child a balanced prepared "meal" or helps you "shop" and create it.
2. Helps your child "stay at the table and eat" only from what's served.
3. Shows you what and how much the child "ate".


- After years of study with real kids, a distinguished Chicago child and adolescent psychiatrist wrote the book and invented ZillyDilly - as if it is the only app familes will ever really need. Eitan Schwarz, MD, believes that media belong in children's hands only to enhance development.

- Start ZillyDilly early and grow it along with your child to encourage healthy brain and personality growth; and promote learning values, social responsibility, importance of family life, and good future media habits.

- Most ZillyDilly functions automatically adjust to specific age group needs:
1. A preschooler's brain is wired to love new learning with you, so you give fun education and are present, avoiding lone empty games.
2. Older kids get more time, variety, and freedom.

- ZillyDilly is the first ever media manager to focus you on your child's online learning, attention span, social awareness, time management, media consumerism, impulse control, and self-discipline.

- Supplement school subjects with engaging, searchable, language-sensitive online content (see TEACHERS below).


- Instant Setup
1. Download and launch the app.
2. Register yourself as a new user.
3. Sign up your child and choose the pre-selected option. 
That’s it! Your child is ready to log in and visit ZillyDilly’s array of sites and online games, and you are ready to watch the magic and relax.

- Keep using ZillyDilly!
1. Use preset media plan.
2. Customize with child's input. Reward responsibility with freedom.
3. Change age / add in-app purchase for fresh plan.

Childproofed Internet

ZillyDilly Fan

ZillyDilly is a real help in saving time because I trust their expert site recommendations. Heard about it from preschool colleague who loves ZillyDilly. I teach 3rd and 4th grades and have 5 iPads in each class. I set it up so that each iPad has a separate set of websites arranged for different subjects and skill levels. This app offers great vetted site choices by age group and can be adapted to special needs and interests to supplement lesson plans. I sometimes let students explore a selected few sites on their own, and they cannot wander anywhere else. Then they "show and tell", and we learn critical thinking and self expression from their online experience. A great tool that can adapt to any teacher's needs.

Good Concept BUT...

Zilly Dilly Fan?

The concept is great, however, their customer service is lacking greatly!!! I have attempted to contact customer service repeatedly because the App created duplicate users on my account and I'm unable to use it for my other, younger child (different age group) without having to pay an additional fee... Did I mention I've already paid for this App? Customer Service has contacted me, giving me instructions that do not resolve the issue at hand. When I reply informing them of this, they do not reply to my message...

Also, it would be nice that once a recommended website is approved that they contact or notify account holders of the location of the new, approved website.

In a nutshell, for an App that I had to purchase (regrettably), one would think I would have been assisted in resolving my problem.



This app is a practical, easy-to-use tool that gives parents the best websites for their kids in a safe and appropriate way. Websites are expertly evaluated and rated and categorized for parents to choose. Without worry or a lot of work, parents give their children interesting, enriching, appropriate and fun online experiences that are also protected and timed. Bravo, Dr. S!
