Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This is a delightful video collection with great variety, but it sorely lacks the ability for parents to choose appropriate categories for their family. Highbrow has a polished feel and the hand curation is evident. The kids' main screens (designed to look like a bedroom) feel too vast and cluttered, especially considering that there are only two things to click on. That's a small quibble, however, for an otherwise clean and easy-to-use interface. As the videos are free and readily available, parents will need to decide if the platform is worth the subscription fee, and that may be impacted by the inability for parents to control the content in any way. Beyond the concern some parents may have over the religious material, not all kids in an age bracket may be ready for the same types of math, or have an interest in ballet. Still, it's a more closed environment than YouTube itself, and that may be worth putting up with the downsides.

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.
