Cool for kids?

YouTube Kids is intended to be a safe place that only contains videos suitable for young viewers. However, while the app filters out most inappropriate clips, some have been known to slip through the net.

There's no substitute for proper supervision, but parents can curate the videos their children are able to watch, restricting their access to specific channels, collections, and individual videos. It's also possible to disable search, set a timer, and see a record of which clips their little ones have watched.
