Get Your Free Trial of Kids Email Today! Just in Time for Back to School!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Everyone gets the option to try it free!
When the kids head back to school (and I know some of them already have started back!), a lot of them are going to have smart phones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices. Even in grade school, I know this to be true. So naturally one of the ways kids will think of to talk, get messages across, etc. is via e-mail. Though effective, e-mail is not always the safest option (think of the amounts of spam you get. Some of it is downright disturbing, and though we just hit delete, kids can be a bit more curious).

KidsEmail is an alternative place from the norm, to get a secure e-mail specifically for children. 

With the introduction of KidsEmail, children are able to learn the ins and outs of e-mail and do so in a protected, safe environment.

Best thing? It's free to try it, so why not? Everyone gets the chance to use it for 30 days, risk-free, for absolutely no charge (and no credit card information required!). After that it runs $2.99 a month if you subscribe annually, or $4.95 a month if you pay as you go. It can be used on Android, iOS, and Web platforms.


Registration is easy. Visit www.kidsemail.com to create a free trial for your child. Enter a valid adult e-mail because you're going to need to confirm to get your parental controls. Once you get them you can set up an account for an older or younger child, depending on their age(s) and your preferences as a parent. This is great too, having the two different options, because it is an account that can actually grow with your child. You can switch back and forth between the two formats at will.

Other options include but are not limited to, a spam filter, offensive word filter, photo and link removal removal, attachments control, block senders, a  tracking GPS, etc. You can also use a time filter to allow/restrict your children's access during certain times of the day or night.

Kids E-mail has already won many awards and it even comes as a pre-loaded option on my popular kids' devices, such as the Klick N Kids Tablet II, the Kurio Xtreme, and the Kurio phone for kids.

I like that KidsEmail has put some thought into creating a way to keep kids safe, while still allowing them the option to use e-mail.

Looks like a great resource for kids and families. Even our youngest (9) wants email so maybe this is a way we can ease her into the online world.

Pat Hatt said...

Gives them a safe way to use it, a good thing indeed

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Looks like a great way to give them a little freedom with email

Sandee said...

There are so many wonderful things for kids anymore.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Mica would like this! He could email a friend that moved back and forth. :)

jcupphoo said...

Interesting! I had no idea that had email just for kids. I guess it makes sense considering how much is floating out there on the web.

Liz Mays said...

This does sound like a great way to get your kids started with email. I'd feel comfortable giving them safe email like this.

April Mims said...

I think I'd be hesitant to get youngsters an email. There are so many online dangers now that it's important to keep them safe.

mykidsguide said...

My little ones want to have their own email. I think it's okay with Kids Email. I will check this out.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Allison was just mentioning that she wanted email. I don't know why. She does most of her communicating on social media. I'd definitely consider getting her this Kid's Email though!

Joanne T Ferguson said...

What a great resource and of course nothing is more important than child safety on the internet! I will be checking this out further shortly!

Colette S said...

I've been hearing about this email for kids, but I'm not sure mine are ready for this as yet. It's good to know it's there though.

Franc said...

It would be nice to have the kids learn to email earlier. This would really help them learn the process.

Amanda Tempel said...

I hadn't heard of this before, but it sounds really useful for kids - Plus I bet they love it! I'll have to share this with a couple friends, with kids.

Sarh Snarski said...

This would be great for my nine year old daughter. She loves emailing her cousin/godmother who moved out of state.

Lisa Codina said...

I love how this is specifically geared towards kids, which means it's safer for them!! It scares me how much inapproriateness there is on the internet!

Ron Leyba said...

This is truly nice. Love this idea of having email service focused on kids only!

~ Noelle said...

I love that it is geared towards kids. can't be too safe these days...

Michelle said...

I love the idea that this e-mail is just for kids. I would be comfortable letting the younger children I know use it.

Stephanie Pass said...

This would be perfect for my tween. He wants an email so bad.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I wonder if any of my grandkids have email yet. Probably not since they are way too young.

Christina Aliperti said...

My 8 year old niece has been asking if she can have her own email address. This may be a way for her parents to give her one and teach her about internet safety. Thank you for sharing because I didn't know about this.

Inspiring Kitchen said...

Had no idea this existed as an option for kids. Great idea on how to communicate with them and keep them safe.

CourtneyLynne said...

Omg how neat is this?!?! I might have to do this for my daughter!

Shelley Zurek -- Still Blonde after all these YEARS said...

Protect your kids any way you can. I like the thoughtfulness they have built into this site.

Elizabeth O. said...

We love Kids Email! I had the opportunity to review this and we took advantage of the free trial. My granddaughters love it. We will continue with out subscription.

Eileen Mendoza Loya said...

This is a great thing for kids (and parents too). I will share this with my sister who has two kids, both tweens.

Nikki said...

I fad no idea about this. but this is perfect for her she was a 8 year old kid. really useful for kids thank you for sharing

MikiHope said...

Email is almost mandatory thanks to the way schools distribute not only notices but also homework these days. But so much spam can and does filter through emails that I am glad they figured out a way to keep the kids safe (and the parents are able to monitor)

Christy Maurer said...

This is so great! When my kids were little, they had the Yahookids account. That was about the only option. It is great that kids can feel independent yet stay safe with this email.

Dogvills said...

I love that there is a safe email for kids. My nieces and nephews are required to have an email. I will tell their parents about this.

Taylor Gilmore said...

This sounds like a great option for parents of small children. They all want to be online these days... even the little ones.

Jaime Nicole said...

This is great for out littlest. I want to keep her safe, but we can't keep her isolated from tech without setting her at a disadvantage

Stephanie said...

What a great idea! So many kids have ipads in school now instead of books. It's great to know that I can set them up with a safe email address.

Michele D said...

Such a safe way for kids to communicate through email. Definitely think this concept is awesome.

Heather Jones said...

Oh I think this would be great for my oldest to communicate with his grandma or other relatives one day. Love this!

Yellow Tennessee said...

This is a neat idea. Right now we have no need for email for the kids but I can see how this would be a great resource when the time is right.

Joanne Dewberry said...

my son uses my email to communicate with his nanny. This looks like a great option though!

Manu Kalia said...

Wow, such a unique way to have for your kids. Thank you for the resource.

Angie Scheie said...

Oh man I LOVE this idea! I'm often shocked at what I get in my inbox. When I have kids I'm definitely looking into something like this!

Ron Leyba said...

I will let my daughter try this. For sure she will share it to her friends and classmates.

Kristen said...

This would be so cute for when my boys get a little older! Love this :)

Mald|taH said...

oh wow! this is a great one! moms will surely love this. I hope this is well filtered and secured enough for the kids. Thanks for sharing this resource.

HilLesha O'Nan said...

My 9 year old son doesn't really get online. However, that is a really interesting concept!

amotherworld said...

Sounds like this is a good service for kids to email safely - I'm concerned about my kids' going online and sending messages.

Victoria said...

This is great for those who have kids on the computer a lot. My kids are still young but once they are active on the computer this is a service I will need.

Shantha Wetterhan said...

Thanks for the heads up on this service! I have two kiddos that need electronics this year.
