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:

Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings.

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.

Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review.

Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience.

Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app.

Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app.

Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs

Yes this is LITTLE kids


I have read a bunch of reviews that were 2 star or lower and he majority seem to be about the baby content. Yes this app is designed more for the LITTLE kids like my daughter age 2. Mostly likely you will get annoyed if your kid is past kindergarten. But this is for kids and so far I like what I’m getting. There is a disclaimer about the content because your version of ok for your kids is different than stuff appropriate for my kids. Don’t rate because of personal preferences. I haven’t come across any swearing like some reviews say but we haven’t had this very long yet so we will see. But even Netflix has shows for kids in the kids profile that r more for he parents than the kids so yes going to see be his everywhere. That’s where the choice to block is nice. If anything do what my husband and I did and download the app for yourself and use it a little before unleashing it to you kid. I actually do that with all my kids’ apps. Thanks!



I don’t like this app because it has so much baby things even when u come form your in elementary school. Then, it’s full of very stupid and inappropriate things like vids having ppl doing bad things and UR LETTING LITTLE KIDS WATCH THAT!!!!!!!!!!!
Then, there’s kids bob witch no one uses, no one cares about it, and making awesome songs into TRASH!! And some vids even have curse words in it! And then u say it’s ok for a kid to watch that? About 99% of the perfectly good vids can’t be used here. Ok, this has to be changed. I only have this app by this is my sisters iPad and I would rate 0 to this app if I could. And the adds? This is the only reason I wanted a profile. It do not mean you shove adds down people’s throats because they don’t have a profile. And also, this app has highly inappropriate things. Google will just allow and vid if it has something like paw patrol or trolls, even if it’s inappropriate. If this app is still alive when I’m a grownup, I would not let my children near this app and let them watch Julies green room on Netflix or something like that. I highly do not recommend this app to anyone!

P.S. 🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡😫😫😫😟😟😟😩😩😩😭😭😭

Parents should have more control over what our kids watch.


It doesn't give me an option to give it 2 and half stars, but that's what I give it! It does have a lot of great videos for my son to watch, but there is a lot of inappropriate and dumb videos on here. Then the only option it give you is for you to block the channel or video or report it. Which is very annoying because you delete it on one channel then it shows up on the next one. You report it and you find one similar on another channel. I would really love an option where I can subscribe to certain channels for my son and those are the only ones he can watch. Setting up a profile for him is joke because you don't really have any control on what pop ups. You can turn off the search and turn off the history but then he can't watch the channels that I approve of and he really likes. This app should really give us parents more of an options to set up their profile's and allow what videos our children can or cannot watch.
