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.

App Reviews

  • Ok, but needs a ton more older kid videos😑

    By Star Lord+5
    I have had this app for over a year and it is fine I guess, but I am 13 and going to be 14 in a couple of months. It has a lot of baby content and other dumb thing a teen would hate! I simply looked up try not to laugh videos and only animal ones came up. I have watched a ton of try not to laugh videos that are totally kid friendly! I watch a lot of guitar tutorials and America’s Got Talent stuff etc., but I am tired of the same old stuff. It would be nice to have some more modern music instead of kids bop and that annoying JoJo Siwa. I also think that there are a some things on this app that kids should not be watching. I have heard a lot of cuss words like the “f” word and the “sh” word and thats not including all of the other things I’ve seen like kissing, having kids, being in a romantic relationship, and dying. A 3 or 4 year old kid doesn’t have romantic relationships and doesn’t even know what those situations are. In conclusion I just want some more variety to pick from. It doesn’t even have to be much. It totally will have to be kid friendly though and I get that. Also the videos should probably be looked and more closely or make an age group setting PS. Thank you for adding a subscribe button. Now I can watch my favorite channels without having to look them up every time😀
  • It was good, but now...

    By AshleySlaysAndPlays🤟🏻
    My little daughter, Brooklyn, loves this game. She says all of her friends watch it and they say it's the best game you can get. She's 3, and she loves watching DIY vids, Elmo, ABC 123 colors and shapes vids, etc. My 7 year old son, Karl, likes this game. He says his fave youtuber is on this so I'm just like, "Cool,Karl!" Sadly, I've seen Brooklyn watching a weird Paw Patrol vid where the puppies were falling into mud and dying. Karl was watching it with her and burst into tears when Chase died. (Y'know, Chase is on the case!) Most of the vids she watch were something happy, educational, encouraging little toddlers to do good things. But I recently had to delete this when Karl had the sound of his vid all the way up, and the youtuber cursed about five times before ending the vid. Brooklyn was caught swearing and putting up her middle finger at Karl, and I was angry at myself for letting my little kid watch that. Please do a good job looking through the vids. Then I will rate it 4 or maybe 5, if I can download the stupid thing. Somehow my kids changed my password. Yea.... welp fix those things and YEA I will rate 5 or.. oh that's the highest one 🤣 k well yea fix it.
  • Yes this is LITTLE kids

    By Pookieber
    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!
  • Love it

    By app boss 831

It’s the only yt i can watch though 🙄🙄🙄 I even chose the older kid 🧒 setting !!!! Ya so I’m pretty tired of this app and I don’t really like it that much anymore but it’s still ok I guess .Also can you have normal music!!! 🎶 INSTEAD OF KIDS BOB JEEZ PEOPLE ITS NOT 2004 anymore!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t recommend this app !!!
  • I am 13 playing this...

    By 💎ԀɪɑϻօɴԀ🚺ցuʀʟ💎
    I am literally 13 years old, and I am concerned for younger kids. I watch this for the Minecraft videos, but I couldn't help but watch Barbie or Jojo Siwa (love that you have her on here). It's cool and all, but if parents have the "search" option on, kids get access to tons of stuff. It's all great, but some of the videos specially have the "G" word. Nothing else, but still, I want kids to be safe. I agree that it is awesome that the parental controls are in this app. But just make sure that channels with nothing bad are on here. Thanks for your time! (PS- I strongly disagree with the other reviews. Perfect for kids, in my eyes.) EDIT: I have edited this almost a year from writing the last from the review, and deleted quite a while ago after finding that you really can't trust this app. I remember an EAH (Ever After High) stop motion video were a girl said the "H" word. The other stop motions were just as bad. If you know where to look, it can be bad. I'm going to have to take away a star.
  • Parents should have more control over what our kids watch.

    By Mellymel2385
    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.
  • STUPID APP 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡🤯

    By cookieCATZ
    I mean this app is ok but this has nothing but baby crap. There is nothing good to watch and if you try to search something good, it won’t be there! This should be an app for babies. NoT all kids!!! This is stupid app and this was a big mistake!!! They don’t have any good Channels or anything!! I’m serious I hope they get rid of this app I hear bad words in videos and they don’t even get rid of those they just get rid of random videos don’t even have anything bad! They got rid of my favorite videos and they’re not even bad! This app is a too secure app. They allow nothing but baby CRAP. All my favorite videos are gone because this stupid crappy app keeps taking them away. Why the heck is this app even created?? Big mistake!!! And the ads? What’s with all the ads?? Every time I press on a video a stupid ad comes on. Just because I don’t have some stupid profile doesn’t mean you can overload with ads every time I press on a video. TERRIBLE APP 😡😡
  • 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.
  • Ugh!!!!

    By lazysunday90
    Let me first say am a kid and I get it parents want kids to be safe on the internet but really really!!!! I hate this app so much for starters you can’t watch full episodes for example let’s say you’re on a road trip and you want to see a full episode of Adventure time you click into the app look it up but the only thing you’re going to see are some clips I don’t want clips darn it!!! Secondly Fnaf is aloud... Do I even have to say it? Do I?! Does anyone over there at google know what fnaf is about?!!! No? Ok I’ll explain it! To put it this way... fnaf is a horror game basically this man killed children stuffed them into robots and now they Hunt the pizzeria where they were killed Now tell me google dose that even sound remotely kid friendly!? Lastly I would like to talk about the settings. Okay so when you download the app it asks you what type of videos the app should play (am 11) but when you pick all ages it still has abc 123 videos on it! So in the next update could you add a 10-12 setting? It would help us older kids who have to be with this app Thanks for reading sorry it’s so long!
  • Pretty good

    By Your Fav fan!!!
    I am a tween And honestly this app isn’t bad. I like watching channels like MyLifeAsEva or Wengie. I can still watch the things I used too. The only thing I would be concerned about is the language and the security. Sometimes I will find videos that I like, but would not be appropriate for a little kid, such as cuss words or just some words that little ears don’t need to hear. The security, you need to improve that. I have a cousin who’s three and could get into parent controls, maybe a custom password would be good. I Also think you should had a subscribe button since almost in every video they say to subscribe. But no comments or thumbs. Well that’s pretty much it overall this app is pretty good and is great for almost and age
