A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

Most videos approved for viewing are classic shows and episodes from shows that have proven track records for positive messages for kids, such as Sesame Street, Dr. Seuss, and The Muppet Show.

Violence & Scariness

Some superhero videos may be too intense for the youngest viewers.

Sexy Stuff

No ads, but some videos are from for-profit media giants such as Disney, Baby Einstein, and others.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Cute but Very Freaky

This is a cute website that is YouTube for kids 2-10 years old. This maybe my first but last year on this site. Cute Videos but some are a bit freaky.

Is it any good?

KIDEOS is a safe, stocked place for kids to find and watch their favorite TV and movie characters online, without their parents worrying that they may stumble upon inappropriate content. Each video has been screened by a team of parents and educators, although parents should still decide for themselves whether the age range for each video is appropriate for their kids. The videos can be found by age range (0–2 through 9–10), characters, or theme as well as by searching; you can share videos you like with others as well as send the site links to child-appropriate videos for them to consider posting. Hundreds of short videos featuring well-known characters make this a site you and your child likely will return to time and again for a quick video break.
