Needs More Variety
I really loved the idea of this for my step-daughter but the issue is we don’t just listen to pop music and Disney in this house (though there is nothing wrong with that and we still love those tunes). I have playlists I make just for her with all kinds of fun electronic dance music and UK pop records. I would love to be able to share those playlists with her kids account so I still have control over the content but she is getting a better selection than just radio tunes and Disney soundtracks.
Update to respond to developers: there is no perfect lineup because I don’t want pre-canned options. Parents should have the ability to share parent-approved playlists (read: playlists made my parents) and approve certain artists/albums/Spotify playlists for their kids. There are already parents in here who think the current pop content is too racy, so you’ll never win with a pre-made lineup.

Hey! Thanks for the feedback. If you could pick the perfect line-up, who would you like to see on the app? You can let us know here in the reviews, or reach out to our support team at support.spotify.com/article/how-can-i-contact-spotify/. They’ll pass this on to the right folks.
Lacking in parental controls
Overall I am reasonably impressed. It has a bunch of prebuilt mixes that work well for children. However, I wish there were more parental controls.
For example, I don’t really think Taylor Swift’s Shake it off is appropriate for a six year old, even if it is sung by children. It takes the Lords name in vain and says “hella”. Not something I want my child picking up on.
If I could remove this song from the sets, that would be one thing, but I can’t. I’m limited to the prebuilt playlists without being able to change them.
It’s a good first step and the idea is something I’ve wanted for a long time, but it’s clearly in its infancy with a lot of room for improvement. I hope it gets the chance to do so.

This kind of feedback is really important to us. If you have time, could you send over the name of the content and your account’s country to our support team at support.spotify.com/article/how-can-i-contact-spotify/? They’ll make sure to pass this on, so the right team can review the content.
Awesome start and awesome developers
My daughter loves this app. For this being so new it’s awesome. The developers have been listening to the other reviews I have read. They have already been working hard to make this app what everyone is looking for with the changes they have made. The only feedback my 4 year old has given me is that she “wants to make different playlist like daddy does”. I’m very interested to see where this goes. Definitely makes me feel better about paying a family subscription.

Great idea! It’s early days, but we’re always looking to improve. We'll share your feedback with our team.
