Filter’s good, but I have suggestions

The filter works pretty smooth so far (despite rare videos about horror game gameplays and blocking some innocent things, probably because it is set for older kids to be less restricted), but I recommend new features. You should be allowed to like and dislike videos, which can improve the filter and help your child find more videos and channels they like. There should also be topics (which can also be liked, disliked, or blocked) such as Halloween, (DIY) tutorials, gaming (I know it exists but I think there should be in an area or tab for topics and not something large on the home page) and other categories. You should also add a subscriptions tab to see recent videos by channels you’re subscribed to and see their content and progress. Thank you for reading.

Don’t expose your children to this!

This is hands down the worst app ever for children/ toddlers. There is NO WAY that this app is monitored at all, like it claims to be when you setup a profile. There are so many examples I can personally give. A 20th Century Fox theme song that CLEARLY depicts a swastica. Then there is the video where Spider-Man shoots I believe Deadpool with what looks like a very real pistol (Glock 19 to be exact). Or, the finger family video where all of the I believe Spider-Man characters (again) are lined up, and are shooting each other in the head blood, death whole 9. And then you have channels like “Candyland”. A (what sounds to be an adult male) displaying gross amounts of candy on a table then exclaiming “So yummy in my tummy”. This is gross to me on so many levels. Then you have the subliminal messages in these kids videos, if you use the bar and scroll through some of the videos, you will catch an extremely brief image of something extremely creepy/ inappropriate. I do monitor what my children watch but it seems like after a week or so or after the app/device update all of the blocked videos magically appear. I uninstalled this app, it is toxic for children, I strongly suggest everyone steer clear. I have contacted you tube kids upward of 20 times but to no avail. Will be taking further action if something doesn’t change (for the poor kid who is being brainwashed).

Thank you for your review, your feedback means a lot to us. Safety is a top priority and we work hard to surface content in our app that is appropriate.

We are committed to building YouTube Kids in a way that offers kids the content they want to watch, while also giving grown-ups the tools to customize the app as they see fit. As no two families are the same, neither are their needs.

For complete control over what your kids are watching, select “Approved Content Only” under each kids' setting. With this mode, your kids will only be able to watch videos, channels or collections that you’ve selected and approved, and they will not be able to search for videos.

We work hard to exclude content that’s not suitable for kids, but we can’t manually review all videos and no automated system is perfect. If you find something inappropriate, you can block the video or the entire channel, or report it for fast review by our teams. By working together we can make YouTube Kids a better experience for everyone.

Good, But Needs Better Monitoring

On the outside, the seems like a fine app for the preschooler/elementary crowd. And most of the time, it is. There are many educational and do-it-yourself videos that children can access. My younger brother lives watching his “Up on the Housetop” (a Christmas song) video. However, also at children’s fingertips are a few less age-appropriate videos. These might satisfy the teenager or tween of protective parents, but they aren’t the best for the target age.
Specifically, I recently found a clip of the “Bustopher Jones” scene from the musical Cats (you know, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that stars people in tight costumes slinking around the stage pretending to be cats). Okay for the (jr) high school crowd, but not quite what most parents want their five-year-olds to watch.
Parents: you might want to preview videos you think your children would view.
Developers: please try to monitor this better! I’m not saying to study every video that comes in, just the ones that look a little off-key. Thanks!
