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 youtube.com/kids 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 5-8 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 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.

  • I love it!


    By #ILOVELOLLIPOPS!!
    I have been watching on yt kids since I was nine, and it has changed drastically. I restarted my iPad, and re-downloaded it, but it loads for like 30 seconds and then my iPad goes back to the Home Screen. I might be the only one with this problem, but it is really annoying, because I have to watch on my iPhone, which isn’t the biggest. I’m not sure if it is something wrong with my iPad, or with yt kids. I have restarted my iPad 3 times, and it still doesn’t work. I am wondering if I may need to delete the app the download it again. Please tell me if there is some glitch in the app, our else I need to delete and re-download it again. Which is annoying especially for my mom, because then she needs to sign in again. I love the app, and I wish I could watch it on my iPad again. Thank you for taking time to read this.

    I like this app a lot! It’s fun and perfect for kids. And even has special videos for special ages. So if your 12 you get 12 year old appropriate videos. And if your 4 or 5 you get the idea! But anyway this app is very well crafted. I do however wish that would update the videos more...Some of the videos are old and aren’t really up to date. And sometimes they do put new ones out there. So I guess that is a good thing but also a bad one too. But the sounds of the app is AWFUL! The video audio is perfect. But the sounds that the app make is VERY pestering if you ask me. Like when you use your finger to scroll through the videos it makes the ugliest noises. So I’m constantly adjusting the audio. But it’s a okay app!

  • Good, but has some Flaws


    By Lithtnrnjwmq nww
    1. Overall, it is a good app. It’s child-safe. But, now I see way more toddler videos, nursery rhymes, and LOTS of stories for kids read in foreign languages than before (as of 2018). Most of the channels I liked back then (Jessii Vee, PeetahBread, and a few more) were removed, even though they have safe content! Meanwhile, you put kids faking as if they were breaking into peoples homes, robbing stores, and doing very creepy challenges that I’m sure an innocent 3 year old would be terrified of! I would look forward to watching them every day! And now they are gone. Now Gamer Girl, Titi Games, and other childish gamers are on my ‘recommended’ list. 2. Let’s say if your 2 year old wanted to watch “WAP.” When they are in the search engine and put in the keyword “WAP,” it gives them a bunch of options like, - WAP music video - WAP lyrics - WAP performance And when you press on them, it shows Cocomelon or videos unrelated to what you pressed! I’m not saying I want to watch those type of videos but, there are options on the search engine that aren’t even in the app! Maybe fix that so you don’t get people’s hope up, and then they can’t even find it. Thank you for reading.
  • Developers must read☹️


    By uwusappygurl
    So I have kids YT and I don’t think u guys filter to well u should filter some you tubers, yeah sure there family friendly but Titi gaming had a Video that had a Momo face and Sure she is family friendly but u guys not at least watching the video before putting it on there is very low and some other kid friendly YT have scary videos that u don’t filter. In that video Titis daughter was playing with her in the video and calling the game the momo game IM NOT SAYINV U SHOULD GET RID OF TITI gaming I’m saying u should start Filtering the videos cuse if there is a YOUTUBER a kid likes and then in one of the videos there’s something scary something that u would not expect from them happens pearnts might get mad - Gachagreentea
  • 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.
  • I like this but...


    By ice cream puppy fog
    Ok so I’m 8 and I still use this I use 8-12 I really think the adds on 8-12 should be a little more 8-12 adds and I really think you should add a kids YT shorts like in real YT and hen I search app “leave the doors open” (one of my favorites) at least don’t do kidz bop cus they sound dumb all my friends agree with me. You could add a part of settings if the kid could watch the official music video. And add some Laurenside videos and cup quake. Also I really don’t like that every day I wanna watch something it’s always the same. If you add this I will be like this 😆😆😁😁😄😄😁😆😄😆😁😆😁😁😆😁😆😁😆😁😁😆😄😆😁😁😆😄😆😊😊😊😊😊😀😀😃😁😆😄😃😄😁😃😄🥲😁😄😄😆😁😄😆😄😁😁😄😁😃😃😄😌 I will be so happy!
  • It’s great but has a few minor issues.


    By &68(2288&;#3#9'sjmdciouwej
    I think that YT kids is a very nice app but sometimes there is not many videos to watch and they are kinda babyish. YT kids is good for children 4-8 years old but I don’t think a 12 year old would want to watch this. Maybe you could change a few things, but overall this is a great app and I definitely recommend this app for children 4-8. And if parents are complaining so much about inappropriate stuff but no! There is nothing on there that’s inappropriate so pls stop saying that. I also wish that we could comment or turn on the bell or even subscribe without are parents account 🙄. Thank you for reading to the end I hope you make some changes with the videos and maybe make an age group 12+?? Maybe?
  • Love it!!


    By AllieCat0517
    As a 12 year old, I do appreciate this app. Sure, I'm older, but my mom wants to keep me safe. I love this app so much! Though sometimes, I do get bored. I used to be able to see things I loved, like Gacha, Roblox Bloxburg (Especially PeetaBread) and other. But now, those were deleted. Also, please add more older content for older kids, like me. I don't like watching Nickoloden every second of my life. I would appreciate more Mr. Beast, Peetahbread, and others. I loved it, but now it's not my favorite due to lack of introduction in the pick of videos. Maybe adding a 10+ setting, enabling more mature videos. I also ask for more gacha videos. I never see these anymore, and that's what I used to watch. Thanks so much for ensuring I'm safe! - Allie
