A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

Comments on videos are monitored and need to be positive or at least constructive.

Violence & Scariness

Lightsabers used in one movie; scary music and masks worn in others.

Sexy Stuff

In one movie a girl is called "yummy" when she walks into the room.

Language

A few words: "sissy" and "sucks."

Consumerism

There are a few banner ads on the site, but advertising of any kind is not allowed in the videos.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this video-sharing portal for kids features kid-friendly homemade videos by kids. Every movie is previewed before posting and must have only G-rated material, i.e., nothing offensive, commercial, or copyrighted. If kids want to do more than watch and share videos, they need to register, which requires a kid and parent's email address (parents activate accounts by clicking on an email link).

title too long try on the bottom.

Preschoolers can be on juniors, 4-7 would be on Kids, fun to be on Maniacs for 8-12, but 13+ won't care too much for this site

What's it about?

Grab your popcorn and sit right down to watch fun videos filmed for -- and by -- kids at KIDVIDEOS.COM. Kids can watch videos that are organized by category and then share their favorites with friends, or they can register to start a favorites list, rate videos, add comments, and upload their very own masterpieces. Specific guidelines are given for video submissions (file type and size, frame rate and size), in addition to tips on how to describe, name, and tag videos for the search tool. The site also provides links to learn more about making movies for young aspiring producers and directors.

Is it any good?

This is a safe haven for future moviemakers and current movie junkies: All videos are prescreened for inappropriate content and viewer's comments are monitored for positive user-to-user interaction.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about revealing too much about you or someone else online. What's appropriate to show in a video? What's not? Families can also talk about what copyrighted material is and how or when it might be an issue when making a video. Will background music be used? Will recording take place at a public event? Where will the art work used for transitions come from? Does everyone who will appear in the video agree to post it online?
