MouseMail

MouseMail is another great contender to our list of free email accounts for kids, it’s another good option that’s fairly similar to ZillaDog and TocoMail with a key focus and emphasis on parental safety. It’s completely free to sign up too and only takes a few moments to do so.

Here are some of the features;

• Highly trusted and recognised safe site that has previously been featured on; CCN, Fox News and USA Today.

4 – Gmail

Gmail kids email

Gmail really doesn’t need much of an introduction, everyone is familiar with Google. Google is the leading and most popular searching engine in the world. Aside from their search engine capabilities they also offer Google mail (Gmail) which is certainly a great choice among the free email accounts for kids available these days.

Just a note that Google does require the account owner to be at least 13 years old so if your kid is younger than that you may want to look at other options or sign up yourself and supervise your kid using the email at all times.
