This curated collection of YouTube videos is a great option for parents looking to let their kids explore freely without running into iffy content. For the most part, the videos included are well chosen and focus on high-interest, engaging material with some sort of educational intent. That said, some of the videos are much better than others. And there are a few downright disappointments, such as the favorite tunes category that's filled exclusively with songs from Disney and other large kids' film franchises. In addition to the YouTube videos, Amaze Kids - Best Kids Videos also has some nice extra features, such as customizable playlists, a timer, and the option to make multiple user profiles. But there's still room for improvement. For example, making a playlist is a really clunky process since parents need to search for each video they want individually by name. Every once in a while, there are links to videos that are no longer available on YouTube. The orientation in the app's menus is upright, but it's sideways for the videos, so kids will have to keep changing how they're holding the device. And although the videos are vetted by real people, it would be great to see a rationale about why videos make it into the collection. However, overall, Amaze Kids - Best Kids Videos is a good choice for safer YouTube video surfing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
