I have been searching through various feeds on YouTube for channels that are appropriate for young children. Planning on making a list for the growing geek-parent audience, I would find a promising channel that would have just one too many non-appropriate comments, videos, or whatever.

Now there is a YouTube Kids app! Available for iOS and Android, this service provides videos, radio, learning, and exploring categories for your young geek. There’s a timer and a really easy to use parental control area, too! Plus, it’s free. All that is needed is the good ‘ol wi-fi connection.

Some of the channels you would expect: Sesame Street, Lego, and Jim Henson. Others, especially in the radio section, were pleasant surprises.

So, there ‘ya go. Thank you, YouTube, for getting me off the hook on that one. <phew>
