Kiddle is a child-safe visual search engine powered by Google Custom Search.

People are claiming that Kiddle is Google’s child-friendly search engine. It’s not. It is a search engine that uses Google’s results, but it’s not a Google product.

This is a Visual Search Engine designed to search for information on the World Wide Web through the input of an image or a search engine with a visual display of the search results.

However, if you worry about young people searching unattended then Kiddle is a good place to start their interests and introduction to the web search on the internet.

However, Parents and teachers rejoice!

The best safe search engine for our kids is Kiddle.co. Not only are search results safe, but they are also from selected sites and prioritized by readability and depth.

Icons are nice and big and image searches won’t return any random inappropriateness.

News and video results actually contain quality content that kids can understand and use.

The idea:

Once the user enters topics in the search toolbar, Kiddle returns and ranks its findings, and pushes child-safe content higher in its search results.

It appears like a Google Programmable Search Engine window with an outer space stylized theme for its pages.

Presents search results with the first three results being deemed safe and written specifically for kids and “checked by Kiddle editors”, the next four being safe sites not written especially for kids, but presented in kid-friendly language.

The eighth result and anything else beyond is safe sites written for adults but harder to understand for kids. The results presented are filtered through Google SafeSearch.

If the user enters terms that are considered inappropriate, a picture of a robot is displayed, telling the user to try again.
