YouTube Kids is an official app from YouTube that's designed to let small children enjoy content specifically tailored to them. Before beginning to use this app, an adult can select whether they want to include content for preschool children or for kids that have already started primary school.

YouTube Kids' two most important configuration options are the following: the possibility to restrict searches and to set a time limit. The second option lets you easily monitor the amount of time your little ones spend in front of the screen watching videos.

The video content on YouTube Kids is, of course, perfectly geared towards kids. You can find cartoons for toddlers, gameplay videos appropriate for minors, along with many other videos covering a variety of topics.

YouTube Kids is an excellent app that keeps kids entertained for hours ... and gives adults some time to relax. Plus, with the timer, you can make sure they don't spend too much time watching videos.
