How does it Work?

A video app made just for kids YouTube Kids was created to give kids a more contained environment filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your kids’ inner creativity and playfulness. Parents and caregivers can guide the journey as your kids discover new and exciting interests along the way. Learn more at A safer online experience for kids We work hard to keep the videos on YouTube Kids family-friendly and use a mix of automated filters built by our engineering teams, human review, and feedback from parents to protect our youngest users online. 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. Customize your child’s 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 as unique as your kids Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. Choose from “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 5-7 to explore their interests in a wide variety of topics including songs, cartoons, and crafts. While our “Older” Mode gives kids 8 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 Our library is filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your kids’ inner creativity and playfulness. It’s everything from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between.

  • Used to be better

    By Flipside0983
    When I first downloaded this for my son the app in itself was a lot easier to maintain and control. I suppose some changes after recent updates does not allow the user to clear the browsing cache anymore. I’ve gone through the settings over and over but can’t seem to find that option anymore. While my son used to watch educational, entertaining or kid friendly videos now there is nothing but homemade crap videos of mostly adults “reviewing” toys or doing some other nonsense. Since the last update I’ve had to block probably 30+ channels from the lite nonsense that comes up on the app now since I am unable to clear the cache. Please add this feature back. I really do enjoy the app for my son but having to block all the foreign channels so he doesn’t get confused and the other nonsensical channels is getting a little overwhelming.
  • Corrupted

    By Aidy Tij
    This app is terrible. Call them evil , call them trolls, or whatever you call them, they have found loopholes to corrupt the algorithm. You find a video titled “Learn colors”, “learn abc’s” or whatever innocent title , and somewhere along the way your child will be exposed to corrupted animations of popular Disney/Nickelodeon cartoon characters chasing each other with bloodied knives, beheading each other, masturbating, you name it. I caught my kid watching one of my little ponies being forced into marrying her brother. Readers out there will blame me, the parent, for letting my kid watch this. I expect that from the internet, but hey - you asked for a rating and wanted my opinion. And I felt it was important to put it out there. These videos are not screened or regulated in any way. App gives you option to block video, one at a time or by channel, but the corruption is endless. You’ll never finish blocking, these sick people are always a step ahead.
  • No thanks!

    By LlamaAvacado234
    The video selection is pretty good, for little, little kids. Even when you switch the age range to older kids, it still gives you ABC videos! They’ll take off videos for no reason and keep bad videos. I heard one video say a real bad word and it was marketed towards 5 year olds! I could type in (for example) TopTenVids nothing would come up. Then I’d type in TopTenVids Disney Princess and tons of regular (not just Disney videos would come up! I’ve also had problems with lag, I mean come on! I could stand right next to my WiFi router and it would still say no internet! What!? I’ve had problems with lots of kids videos (like CookieSwirlC and Funnel Vision) be taken off because they are not “appropriate”. Then they’ll be put back on! It really needs better monitoring! 👎👎👎
  • Really?!?

    By appppppppplllllleeee
    Hi I’m writing first to say it a good enough app but there are A few things I’d liked changed so first after you watch some videos it starts to delete videos off the app for example after I used this app for a while I watched danTDM but then my brother found out my second favorite YouTuber was on there but I couldn’t watch him because it had already deleted his video off the app!!!!! Then they have Series on there but like there’s say episode one of a let’s play but not the next episode!!! Why?!?! And you can’t share videos with your phone 😡 and I wish you could comment and ring a bell 🔔 but you can’t even watch the whole series!!! I’m thinking about deleting this app please fix this five stars if you do🥺 thank you for reading to the end.
  • It was ok... UNTIL NOW

    By thatonerailfan
    This app was ok and serving me well. Until recently. Any time I go on the app now, no matter how good my WiFi connesction is is, it says “oops! Couldn’t load any videos!” And when I click try again 5 million times, all the videos that normally pop up aren’t there! No recommend videos, no music videos, no learning videos, no nothing! Just the search icon and settings icon. When I search for a vid, the title text is superb small! And when I click on a vid, most of the time it just says “something went wrong. Tap to retry” and I do that multiple times, and it hardly ever works! And when it does, the title and other vids don’t even apppear! I have tried reinstalling the app, hard restarting my iPad, and going on different WiFi’s, but nothing works! All these problems have arisen in the past week, so I hope a bug fix comes out soon, but for now, IM REALLY MAD!!!!!!
  • No, no, and also No

    By Slwstevens
    I’ll be honest with you, kids YouTube=good for 1 year olds. ANYBODY older than that will hate this. Somehow, this app takes off good videos for no good reason, when I search up specific songs it somehow restricts the actual version of it and allows a “kIdZ bOp” cover of it, which frustrates me beyond belief. And it doesn’t even matter if it’s a clean song! It’ll just restrict it for no apperant reason! If you’re a parent and you don’t want your kids lookin’ at bad things this is the app for you. If for any other reason you want it, don’t do it, this is a flawed and crappy app, that could use some major improvement.
  • It changed him.

    By Vivi8436
    I just want to say...that my brother used this app and became addicted. Like, when his iPad died he SCREAMED. He started shouting at everyone and threw his iPad. Its like the app changed who he was. He would also when we would have to do somewhere he would complain. Then we decided that he had to bring it for him to be “entertaimed”. He was isolated from the outside because he wanted to be on this app none stop! He never played with the kids in our neighborhood. And whenever we tried talking to him he diddent respond. He kept watching his screen. This app changed his life in a good and bad way. I hope you understand this. I tried the app when i was 8. I found it ok...most of the stuff i liked wasent on their. Like, Gacha life videos, aphamu, and other YouTubers. I diddent love this app, neither did my mom. It changed my brothers life. He’s been watching this for 3 years. 3 YEARS!!!!!
  • Not a bad app for Kids

    By DeSiRaBL3
    This is generally for kids, and has many family friendly videos, except there are those that get to this kids app that curse or even do things that are inappropriate for children. But I hope that they fix that sooner or later, to be completely honest this has been great for my 3 year old niece and nephew. They have gotten a lot more creative with their toys and started to talk and help one another, even counting from 1-20 and can easily say the colors which for me was kind of fascinating. So I’ll rate this a 4.9 for me until they sort out the good videos and the bad ones. 😁

    By U3005061
    1. Plz put actual songs on this app. Not just instrumental, and covers of the song. Or at least put clean versions on it!!!! 2. I KNOW, this may be a little too much to ask... but would you consider clean vines??? PLZ!!!! 3. You only have animal try not to laugh challenges. Some of us don’t find turtles very funny. 4. The 15 second cartoon musical that plays when you open the app is beautiful, It really is, but sometimes, I don’t want to watch dinosaurs dancing to bad music. 5. plz allow US to make our OWN albums, like a music album, or a DIY one so you could find your favorite videos without looking them up every time, and, so we have our own playlist of music we like. Plz do this.
  • Great for kids but needs screen lock

    By Marx24
    We have 2 kids a 7 and 3 year old. And I like how they each can have a profile that parents are able to control what content they are allowed to see. My 7 year old does a good job sticking to her shows but my 3 year old is figuring out how to go into the other profile. And will be very touchy so constantly keeps switching back and forth from show to show and it gets annoying. Please add a screen lock so that way they can’t get out of full screen when a show is put on. Even with guided access they are able to get out of full screen. If you could take this into consideration it would be great. Thank you
