Toon Goggles launched its subscriber-based service in early September, but continues to offer users limited content for free by providing an option to view up to three episodes of the platform’s library of diverse content for free, including free access to all educational programming. The platform is fully COPPA-compliant (Children Online Privacy Protection Act), boasting a strictly enforced screening process to ensure that all content presented is clean, safe and age appropriate. Designed specifically for children to be in charge of their viewing experience; to watch their own personally selected programming, watching what they want, when they want and where they want. As such, Toon Goggles encourages parents to review the Toon Goggles diverse content and take part in their children’s enjoyable viewing and browsing experience.

We feel that children should be able to view cartoons based off their own likes and interests. We make it simple for them with six different category offerings and an easy keyword search box. At Toon Goggles, children can create their own Facepage and add their favorite cartoons to their Toonstrip for future viewing. We want children to be in charge of their viewing experience and watch the content they want, when they want and where they want. As such, we encourage parents to review Toon Goggles and participate in their children’s viewing and browsing experience.
