The world of YouTube is quite a place.
Never before has there been more silly, scary, sexy, stupid, educational, disruptive, and disgusting content under one roof. And that’s great. Except for when that same place also happens to house some of the best kid-friendly content around. From Minute Physics to Crash Course to Hoopla Kids, YouTube is not just great for you and I, it’s great for the wee-ones in our lives, as Real Simple explains. It could be a great source of entertainment and learning for the whole family. Someone just needs to care enough to make it so. So we made Kideoplayer.
Kideoplayer is a way to curate the sea of online video content while making it easy, interesting, and fun for parents and kids to experience together. And it does it in a way that deals with the inappropriate content so that kids can surf comfortably, with or without a guardian at their side. The good folks at Examiner said it best when they said, “If you can see it on Kideo, you can be confident it will be okay for your kids.”
Hand-curated so you don’t have to worry. Our curators are Makeable folk and volunteer parents. Together we curate and tag every video in the feed. From Ponies to Singing Parsnips we find it, tag it, review it and que it. Of course we make no claim that you won’t be infuriated by Singing Parsnips. But we do guarantee there’s nothing inappropriate on Kideoplayer. Ever.
A simple front end for letting your kids off the leash. Now that you’re sure the video Johnny is seeing is among the most kid-friendly YouTube videos available, why not let him explore on his own for a bit? Kideoplayer isn’t just about filtration. It also aims to make the viewing experience more kid-usable as well. You browse video on Kideoplayer.com using your space bar––that’s it. And every time you do, you’ll be served another kid-friendly delight. Neat right?
Roll your own kid-friendly channel. Right now you can also use the URL structure to search videos of a certain genre. For example, www.kideoplayer.com/cars will present only car-related content. In the future we will be adding an additional feature that will allow parents to curate their own video list for their kids. Stay tuned!
