Ok...we've been using Glubble for several hours today. I also like the fact that I can save favorites for my kids, and then they can see them when they login to their own page. I also like that I can upload pictures for them. My oldest daughter had the chance to learn about the Hubble Space Telescope. I didn't even know that it's a satellite...so I learned, too!

I love the fact that the kids have their own special screens that are locked and they can't do anything else. I am still figuring out all of the details of how it works...I just figured out that you can control the content by deactivating the websites you don't want your kids to access.

I really like the way I can let my son browse the web without having to ask him to close the window or go back to the previous site. I trust him, but I don't trust the web...not without Glubble!
