Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Kideos is a safe place kids 2–10 can find preapproved, age-appropriate videos to watch online. With an easily navigated interface, this site is simple enough for older kids to use with little supervision.
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.
