Kideos is the Kid-Friendly YouTube

I've written about YouTube here on the blog before, way back in the day, and while I think it is a great site for older kids and adults, there is often...questionable content that is just not appropriate for younger kids.

My guys are teens now, but for those of you with elementary school-aged children, a new site which just went live last week might be the answer.

Kideos is an online entertainment destination for kids that features videos parents have approved, in an easy to use environment that kids can navigate on their own.

Kideos, a product of Earlier Media, features popular children’s videos, from Elmo to Thomas, with a kid-friendly interface within a safe environment.

Central to Kideos’ value proposition is the site’s Video Advisory Council, a group of parents and educators who screen content before it appears on the site. Once videos are reviewed by the Council, they are categorized and sorted into age-based groups factoring in developmental criteria and recommendations from leading experts nationwide. This process was put in place by Earlier Media with the goal of giving parents confidence that the content on Kideos is appropriate, safe and entertaining for children.

Additionally, the site offers parents their own personalization tools to limit videos shown to their children by selecting the appropriate age-based category. Once chosen, children will only be able to view videos specifically targeted towards their exact age group.

“Children are using the Internet for entertainment at a very young age,” said Josh Solt, COO of Earlier Media. “We built Kideos to provide children an easy way to watch their favorite videos while giving their parents peace of mind that their kids are viewing safe, age-appropriate programs.”

New content is added to the site daily after it is reviewed by the Council so kids have a fresh experience with each visit.

Content includes children’s television shows, movies, educational videos, music videos, cute animals, and more. For more information, please visit
