YouTube Kids - design and internet

The YouTube Kids App includes parental controls so you can customise your child’s experience.

YouTube Kids is an American video app and website for children developed by YouTube, a subsidiary of Google.

The app provides a version of the service oriented solely towards children, with curated selections of content, parental control features, and filtering of videos deemed inappropriate for viewing by children under the age of 13, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

Available on Apple’s App Store and on Google Play.

A safer online experience for kids

Working hard to keep the videos on YouTube Kids family-friendly and use a mix of automated filters built by engineering teams, human review, and feedback from parents to protect our youngest users online.

Customise the experience with Parental Controls

Limit screen time: Set a time limit for how long your kids can watch and help encourage their transition from watching to doing.

Keep up with what they watch: Simply check the watch it again page and you’ll always know what they’ve watched and the newest interests they’re exploring.

Blocking: Don’t like a video? Block the video or whole channel, and never see it again.

Flagging: You can always alert us to inappropriate content by flagging a video for review. Flagged videos are reviewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Create individual experiences

Create up to eight kid profiles, each with its own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. Choose from the “Approved Content Only” mode or select an age category that fits your child, “Preschool”, “Younger”, or “Older”.

Select the “Approved Content Only” mode if you want to handpick the videos, channels and/or collections that you’ve approved your child to watch. In this mode, kids won’t be able to search for videos.

The “Preschool” Mode designed for kids 4 and under curates videos that promote creativity, playfulness, learning, and exploration.

The “Younger” Mode allows kids 5-8 to explore their interests in a wide variety of topics including songs, cartoons, and crafts.

While our “Older” Mode gives kids 9 and up the chance to search and explore additional content such as popular music and gaming videos for kids.

All kinds of videos for all kinds of kids

YouTube Kids – The library is filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your kids’ inner creativity and playfulness.

It’s everything from their favourite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between.

Love this app!

So I think you should get this app because it doesn’t let your kid go on anything inappropriate. If you set it to their age then it will show age appropriate videos. And you can block channels and videos you might think are inappropriate for your kid. And your kid can be educated when they are on the app. Also you kid may also choose their profile picture! And what my kid loves about this app is that there is a cute little intro that shows you kid and me that their in the app. But what I absolutely love about this app is that you can set a timer when this app turns off. So if your little one is on this app then it will not let your kid in any of the videos. Don’t worry if your kid can get into the important stuff to control the app it has a math problem that your kid can’t solve. So this is the reason I think you should really get this app.
