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 â from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between. Thereâs also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your familyâs 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 weâre 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 donât want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kidsâ profiles.
Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldnât 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.
WATCH ON TV:
Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs

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.
Important information for parents with Family Link Google accounts.
You can create Google Accounts for kids under the age of 13 in Family Link. Your kids can sign into YouTube Kids with their Google Account. You can access parental settings in the Family Link app and enable an additional content level setting in our app. Opt into an âolderâ setting if you feel your kid is ready for less restricted videos. These videos may contain some explicit language and imagery, violence and suggestive content. In addition, this setting tries to exclude mature content, but no automated system is perfect and your kid may find content with nudity, highly offensive language, and extreme violence.
The Privacy Notice for Google Accounts created in Family Link describes our privacy practices when your kid uses YouTube Kids with their Google Account. When your kid uses YouTube Kids without signing into their Google Account, the YouTube Kids Privacy Notice applies.

Please let us turn autoplay off. I dont know how many times I have come home to this app still running with a dead phone. Also let us set a data limit as well. Like turn down to 480 or lower to consume internet for the month. Full Review

My little guy is almost 2.5 and he absolutely loves the you tube kid app. He is able to easily operate it, with out any trouble. The video quality is good. Our favorite feature is the timer app on it, you can do all the way up to an hour. We also enjoy the offline photos as well, makes traveling 10x easier. The only downfall is that sometimes there are videos that pop up that I don't necessarily agree with for him, but that is very rare . Full Review

There are too many videos to be actively screening out/blocking. It would be better and safer for kids if parents could add specific videos or channels they deem appropriate to their kids' app. Like an individually tailored sandbox. Not the backwards way it is now. Also, if I find one video unsuitable from a channel, I'd like to block that whole channel. Sucks for creators, but they have to prove themselves trustworthy before I let them have my child's attention. Full Review

Instead of enhancing the graphics, colours and interfaces of this apps, it will be better if you guys put a BLOCK VIDEO button that actually works, and a CLEAR VIDEO HISTORY button again on the next update. That'll will helps a lot of concerned parents,save time blocking garbage videos. 5 stars if you manage to do that. Full Review
Aminat Rufai Published date: January 31, 2018
I would like to be able to block certain videos and even certain usernames like SharmitusPrime. These people are reviewing toys. Seems innocent enough. But they're showing twerking and cleavage during intro and saying disgusting things during the video. Please get them off YouTube Kids. I'm sure there are other videos (aside from videos by SharmitusPrime) that parents would love to be able to block. Full Review
Kaitlyn Bazor Published date: February 19, 2018
I love the app! It's so much fun but.... The only thing is, is that the only reason why I got it, is because it was supposed to be for (kids). So why the world would it have the D word in one of the videos! I'm very disappointed.... Besides that the app is great!ð And I have one question, how do you put videos on YouTube kids? I want to start making stop motion Barbie doll videos and I want to put it on YouTube kids without having to post it on YouTube first. Can someone help me? Full Review
Trevor Self Published date: January 27, 2018
It would be great if you could whitelist channels instead of blacklist them. YouTube is filled with garbage "kid's videos" and who knows what weird video my kid will end up watching. I'd rather set up approved channels than block them as I happen to find them. Full Review

My kids love the app. he always left the app open or some times just minimise it. The app consume a lot of data even in the minimise mode. In night during my sleep (6 hours) the app consume more than 1.5 GB of data in minimise mode. Please rectify the same. Full Review

This app was amazing. I havent come across anything suggestive or innappropriate. My parents weren't too enthusiastic for me to have youtube, so youtube kids was a great alternatuve. Both them and i were and are 100% satisfied with this app. Can you please add a subscribe button? Thx. And dont forget to please subscribe to hgilk1 diy Full Review

This app is perfect for ages 3 through about 7/8. Simple to use and navigate. I'm shocked though honestly, I'm wondering why the parents of the spoilt sounding children rating this app haven't helped them to articulate their thoughts and concerns better. If you do not care for an app, that's obviously ok. But posting that the app is "stupid and baby stuff and booooorrrriiinnngg" doesn't make the creators take issues seriously. And it won't help to add new content. Full Review

My grandson loves watching videos. He's learned so much from the educational videos and it's helped his speech. The only thing I'd change is the parental settings. I'd really prefer to limit a majority of what he watches. There's just some things a 3 year old shouldn't be watching. Full Review
Corey Whitworth Published date: February 19, 2018
YouTube Kids is sadly full of garbage vids such as nonsensical video game vids, with marvel and Disney characters, masking themselves as "kid friendly" and "informational" videos. That coupled with the fact you touch the screen once and it brings up related videos, forcing me to lock the screen, which is an annoying process. I'll stick with Amazon Freetime which offers better shows and an easier way to prevent kids from navigating away from content. Full Review
Christopher Jacobs Published date: February 20, 2018
This app is stupid. Too restrictive on videos. YouTube needs to find a way to let you the parent allow videos. My little girl loves ABBA and Michael Jackson, but you can't get them on here. YouTube needs a better solution. Full Review
