A world of learning and fun, made just for kids We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video – from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between. There’s also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family’s needs. A safer online experience for kids We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families. Get the scoop on all the control features available to you: KID PROFILES: Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. CHANNEL COLLECTIONS: Select collections of channels on a variety of subjects by trusted partners and YouTube Kids. PARENT APPROVED CONTENT: Make sure you’re in control of what your kids watch and handpick the videos, channels, and collections of channels they can see. OLDER EXPERIENCE: As your little ones grow and develop you have the option to open up new content appropriate for 8-12 year olds. Simply enable this option when creating a new profile or update an already existing one. This setting allows kids to watch popular music and gaming videos from creators like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rosanna Pansino, Roman Atwood, Dan TDM, GloZell, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Dude Perfect, Brooklyn & Bailey, Minecraft, and many more. We work hard to make videos in the app family friendly, but no system is perfect. It’s always possible that you may find something you don’t want your child to watch. These videos may contain some explicit language and imagery, violence and suggestive content. YOUNGER EXPERIENCE: The “Younger” version includes videos from Thomas the Tank Engine, Dreamworks TV, Talking Tom, The Little Bus Tayo, Angry Birds, Monster High, DC Kids, and many more. With a wide selection of sing-alongs and age appropriate learning videos, this experience is perfect for preschool to school aged little ones. We work hard to make videos in the app family friendly, but no system is perfect. It’s always possible that you may find something you don’t want your child to watch. BLOCKING: Find a video or channel you don’t want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kids’ profiles. VIDEO REPORTING: Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review. SEARCH CONTROL: Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience by limiting the experience to channels that have been verified by YouTube Kids. TIMER: Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app. WATCH HISTORY: Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app. WATCH ON TV: Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs For more information, visit Other important information: Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your kid. YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your kid may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads.



  • Very little videos for older kids.

    I am not allowed to use regular YouTube (I'm 12), and I like ldshadowlady, yammy, Collins key, and some other you tubers that don't really get put on YouTube kids so much. Also I noticed that a YouTuber called Casey Neistat had some curse words in it and I think that those videos should be taken away from YouTube kids. Thank you for your patience in reading a 12 year old's review. Sarah Z
  • I like this App

    By Jhonny mlg
    I love this app because this kid and I I am a kids
  • Why does this app exist

    By Bopjects
    I have two kids and my wife got them this app. A few weeks later, She found her daughter watching a weird video with 7 curse words in it (She found it after the third) and then she had to set up a profile because this stupid app shows you WAY too many ads on there. And when you try to search for good kids content, it won’t be there!! And don’t get me started on the baby music! My son used this app on the older kids setting but there was still a bunch of stupid baby videos!! Until Google decides to fix this, We will show them kid friendly videos on normal YouTube.
  • So happy for this

    By kamy bug
    Make it so great
  • Finally they have decent parental controls

    By SunnyLs
    So glad they figured out how to let you choose content rather than just blocking channels. No more candy videos, Daddy Finger videos or just random screeching kids. I was so sick of blocking and blocking but it was never enough. But they got rid of the search feature when you adjust it like this. I want to be able to find the particular video my daughter asks for rather than scrolling.
