ImbeeRadio Is Like Pandora For Kids

What if KidzBob met Pandora? What if we knew the answer to that question? Imbee has just announced a new product, and it's effectively just that: KidzBob/Pandora, all in one. Imbee is already considered "the" go-to social network for kids, has revealed the first just-for-kids on demand unlimited streaming service that offers a personalized and safe listening experience for its users.

Imbee users will be able to listen to over eight million songs, with artists such as Taylor Swift, The Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber, Willow Smith and many more populating the airwaves. That may suit your tastes very well, but remember, this is for your kiddos! imbeeRadio lets imbee users create their own station according to their personal music tastes, and they can then share that station with their friends on imbee, listen to that station on multiple devices and stream an unlimited number of songs.


Imbee's aim is to be the Pandora for kids in addition to being the Facebook alternative for kids 8-14, and they honestly might be onto something. Tons of kids in that age range are growing up on the Internet and on cellphones, so there's probably a blooming market for age-specific streaming radio. The platform is built to be free of profanity and is legally cleared for use by imbee users, but if you want to use it, be ready to shell out. There's an unavoidable monthly fee of $4.99, which allows kids to stream an unlimited number of songs to their personalized station that lives on their page at imbee.com.  For imbee users who have already signed up and for those who sign up from today until May 30 when the service goes live, imbee will offer a special one-time introductory rate of $3.99 a month for the first six months.

Think your kids will have a listen? Or are you putting it on mute before they even have a chance?

So it won't truly be Pandora for kids because they charge for it. I would have to assume there is no advertising on this service if they are charging for it. It sounds like it is similar to Pandora One which is Pandora's paid service which is only $3 a month.

Everyone exploits kids!!! It's not good for your kids unless you pay for it. I despise kidzbob. Also if your kid is old enough to have a phone they should be old enough to listen to normal radio. I'm sure my thoughts will change when I have an 8-14 year old.

*tries to hold in straight face*

Who am I kidding, this is utterly ridiculous. We don't need a Pandora for kids, because Pandora can be customized for kids themselves, and it's free on top of it.

Also I don't know if you have to pay for the Facebook-like aspect of it but having to pay to access a social network aside from a Pandora ripoff is insane, Drake was right, this is exploitave.

I wonder how the court case involving Pandora will affect this. Oh and just to say one thing anything app wise in general and by default is exploitative. It does not matter if it is Facebook or yahoo messenger. They are all recording your data for the providers use to some extent whether it be log ins or site visited.
