Published:

Leading tween website KidzVuz.com recently conducted a survey among 1000 kids ages 7-12 and discovered that out of this summer's crop of summer flicks, the movie tweens want to see most is "Despicable Me 2" - which garnered over 52% of the vote.

The minions are followed close behind by the new film "Turbo", which opens in theaters July 17 and stars Ryan Reynolds. Rounding out the list is "Monsters University" (36%) and the "One Direction 3D Movie" (6%).

Speaking of highly anticipated animated movie openings, KidzVuz.com reporter "Glittergirl" attended last night's red carpet premiere of "Turbo" where she landed an interview with the film's stars Ryan Reynolds and Ken Jeong. Take a look...

Founded by Nancy Friedman and Rebecca Levey, two New York City parents who take every child’s privacy seriously, the free KidzVuz Mobile IOS app is the first and only app that empowers tweens (ages 7 - 12) to be roving reporters, active reviewers and amateur videographers all within a safe, fully- moderated, COPPA compliant space. Recently named one of the top ten new apps for kids by Entertainment Weekly (EW.com) the app allows tweens to take the KidzVuz experience with them, wherever they go and encourages children to be roving reporters, active reviewers and amateur videographers. Whether they're eating out, traveling, shopping, or attending a movie or show, registered users will be able to share and upload videos from wherever they happen to be. The App activates the device’s video recorder and allows kids take videos and post them directly from the app to the site, so they don't need to learn complicated upload procedures. They can comment, watch new videos and check their stats and badges – all within the same COPPA-compliant, moderated platform.

KidzVuz.com has been featured in The Wall Street Journal as a top site for tweens, Teachers First as an educational resource, and was named a best new site of 2011 by Cool Mom Picks.
