Where do I get popular apps like Netflix or PBS Kids?

KidiBuzz is an Android device, so it's compatible with most Android apps. However, you won't find the apps you're most familiar with in Learning Lodge® because the apps in Learning Lodge® have been specifically chosen by our team of learning experts for their age-appropriate and educational content. If you want a broader selection of apps, follow the instructions below to install the Amazon Appstore.

Warning: The apps in the Amazon Appstore are not reviewed by VTech and may contain content that is inappropriate for children. They may also contain in-app advertising and may allow your child to make purchases depending on your parent control settings within that app store.

Original Kidibuzz™ System:


First, touch the avatar in the upper left corner of your child's Home screen, then touch the Parents icon to enter Parent Settings.

Kidibuzz G2™ System:


First, swipe to the second page of your child's Home screen, then touch the Parents icon to enter Parent Settings.
