Today’s parents are bombarded with kids TV shows and programs that claim to cater to preschoolers, little ones, and big kids from ages 2 to 10. But how can you make sure everything your child watches is safe and healthy for their cognitive development, especially when much of what they are served on YouTube, Netflix, and other paid streaming services is determined by algorithms? That’s why Sensical exists.
Sensical is a streaming service backed by Common Sense Media that provides kid-friendly content curated by age and topic. And the best part? It’s completely free! Unlike paid, subscription-based streaming services, Sensical is an ad-supported streaming service that hand-selects content based on child development experts’ review (not algorithmic referrals). That way, you can be sure that every minute your child watches is completely safe and age-appropriate.
To start watching all of the great videos on Sensical, the process is quick, easy, and completely free. That’s right! We promise there are no hidden fees or charges. Instead, our mission is to support and partner with parents to provide healthy, safe media for kids. When you’re ready to explore all Sensical has to offer, just follow these four easy steps to create your account. We know you’re a busy parent, so we’ve made it simple for you. The whole process should take less than 5 minutes to complete!
The Sensical app is available in the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, Roku Channel Store, and VIZIO. Or, if you prefer to stream shows from your computer, head over to www.sensical.tv to start watching.
You can set up your Sensical account and start watching with just a few clicks. To register, first provide your birth year, so we can confirm you are an adult and not a child registering. Next, enter your email address and set up an account password and PIN. (Only you will use this PIN, not your kids.) Once you confirm your email address, you will be able to sign in to your account.
We will ask for a little bit of non-personally identifiable information about your child, including their first name, birth month, and age.
Be sure you select the appropriate age range. That way, we can provide all the best curated content appropriate for their age group. Our age ranges are:
We use this information to populate their unique viewing experience, which you can manage once you create your account. If you’re uncomfortable providing their first name, you can always set up their profile with a nickname. If you have multiple children, repeat the process to set up a different viewing profile for each of them. This way you can be sure that what they are watching is exactly right for their age. And don’t forget to customize by selecting a different monster icon for each child. Have fun with it — let them pick the colors and more.
For more account options, check out the ParentZone, where you can set time limits, edit or delete your children’s profiles, view learning reports and details on what they’ve been watching, and more. This part of your parent account is password protected with the PIN you created.
That’s it! Now you can log in from any Wi-Fi-enabled device, and your kids can start enjoying free and safe curated content right away. Remember, there are no monthly fees or annual subscription fees for Sensical. It’s all completely free!
