Kodi Tykes Add-on

The Tykes Add-on for Kodi is specifically an add-on for Kodi. It hosts Kids IPTV Channels, Movies and TV Shows in a friendly interface.

Before we start

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

Tykes Overview

Tykes add-on for Kodi is for younger users such as children, so if you have a child you may want to set this one up for them. You’ll find it hosts Movies, Live TV, Beat Bugs, Marvel, Star Wars and Top Cat.

When I tested the Tykes add-on out recently, it wasn’t super reliable. However maybe it just needs a small update by the developers. I couldn’t get the IPTV Channels to work, however a good portion of Movies where working.

This add-on isn’t supported or affiliated with the developers of the Kodi platform. Please don’t head to the Kodi forums for help. If you’re having any problems with installing this add-on, please leave a comment below.
