March 11, 2015 marks the start of the Kindie Rock Showdown. Kids’ music blogging veteran, Zooglobble, has teamed up with batteryPOP, a great online resource featuring curated video content for a broad range of ages (preschool up to tweens!), to present a kids’ music video tournament.
batteryPOP was founded by oh just a couple of regular all-star guys from Nickelodeon. BatteryPOP’s mission is to find the highest quality, age-appropriate content that is well, awesome. Sounds pretty right on to me! And so far they have been crazy successful with it. Your kids can find videos, cartoons, blogs for kids, video game walkthroughs, and the best in Kindie music videos.
The way batteryPOP works is that if you like a video you a “pop” it which is basically similar to “liking” a song on Pandora, for example. This lets batteryPOP know what you like so you can be served more preferred content.
Ok, so, the Kindie Rock Showdown…
