SEOUL, Korea Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced its updated Kids Store features which is available in Kids Mode on Galaxy S5, Galaxy Tab S. The Kids Store not only enables users to shop for free or paid apps of select content for children while recommending meaningful content by age and subject, but also helps parents to protect their children from unwanted content by setting up safeguards for certain contents.

 

“The average age at which children using ‘smart devices’ for the first time has become lower than before.” said WonPyo Hong, President of the Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung is committed to providing interesting and educational content to children, while continuing its effort to help parents protect their children and allow them to enjoy safe, parent-approved content in their daily lives.”

 

Kids Store now offers 900 specially selected applications for children. Comprised of two tabs with a choice of content grouped by age and subject, Kids Store allows users to easily navigate through the available content. The content classification is as follows: 0-4 years old for preschool children, 5-6 years old for kindergarteners and 7 years old or more in primary school children. The content is also categorized by subject: learning, play, and story.

 

In addition, the Kids Store brand zone provides premium content for children from providers such as, PBS Kids, Budge Studio, Cupcake Digital and Intellijoy and offers free gifts of over $50 to users, which can be used to purchase applications such as Toca Hair salon 2, Sprinkle Island and Pucca Funny World Tour exclusively. Also, Kids Store provides popular applications which are enjoyed by children around the world such as, LEGO, Pocoyo and Tipitap, and the English education content for children such as Agnitus, Little Bidge English and Creative Corner for the creativity. Kids Store is available in 150 countries around the world.

 

Within Kids Mode on the Tab S and Galaxy S5, children can draw, watch videos, record their voices with funny cartoon effects and take pictures. Kids Mode also gives parents the control they expect to have. Children can only choose applications from the Kids Store and through the Parental Control feature, children can only purchase content approved by their parents as a password must be entered in the parents mode for all purchases.
