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.

Best Safe Search Available

They have the best filtering system available that combines google safe search with their own extra layer of filtering. My kids love their safe radio, games and other features. The autocomplete focused on what kids often search for is very useful. If I find any iffy content they have a link to easily report it and they promptly respond to any questions . Nothing is perfect, but this is the best solution I found to keep my kids safe online.

Excellent Resource for Kids

After exploring many different kid-friendly search engines, we found KidzSearch to be the best overall in terms of providing safety while also giving access to the widest amount of content. It absolutely filters porn, which is a big concern. However, if you really try and search hard enough, you may find some pg-13 stuff, but in order to block that you would need to use a watered down search site with very limited content, and that was just not going to work for us. Our kids LOVE the KidzTube feature and all the great learning videos it provides. They also get a lot of use from the homework help forum.
