This great video content may not be appropriate for the whole family, so parents may still want to preview the curated content. Brainfeed - Educational Videos for Kids is truly a wonderful collection of videos. It covers a wide base of content, and the videos do a good job of breaking down complex ideas for the layman. But since the content is available elsewhere for free, much of the subscription value comes from the curation. If parents still need to weed through to find content that's appropriate for a particular age (or for their family politics and beliefs), that curation becomes less useful. The educational value is there, although some of the messaging is quite biased, so it will depend on the age and maturity of the kids and how families want to use the content. This may be a good source of classroom material for, for example, a homeschooling family while those who just have extra curious kids may want to search elsewhere. Thankfully, the free trial gives parents enough time to make that decision for themselves.

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.
