Starting today, until August 31st, over 100 movies and specials will be released on YouTube Kids.
Thanks to Covid-19, our plans for the year have changed. A lot of us are spending more time at home – which can drive us all a little crazy.
YouTube Kids have come to the party by announcing that from today until the end of August, they’ll be releasing more than 100 movies to its’ kids collection.
From popular family movies and specials featuring Tayo the Little Bus, Baby Shark and Pinkfong, The Wiggles, Masha And The Bear, Oggy & the Cockroaches and Paddington, to a collection of the best animated short films anchored by Oscar-winning short film Hair Love, and a wide variety of educational specials including Sesame Street’s Elmo’s World News, produced in collaboration with the Lego Foundation, and selections from BBC Studios’ hit series, Hey Duggee.
As part of this initiative, YouTube Kids will premiere Spookiz, a new movie produced by South Korean studio Keyring Studios, in collaboration with WildBrain, exclusively on YouTube Kids.
A wide variety of YouTube Originals are also available on YouTube Originals for Kids & Family Channel and YouTube Kids, including Sherwood for kids age eight and older, Kings of Atlantis and Fruit Ninja Frenzy Force for ages five and up, and current favourite for many kids and tweens across the world — Lockdown, suitable for ages five and up.
YouTube Kids app was built keeping in mind kids below the age of 13 years. It’s a family-friendly place for kids to explore their imagination and curiosity. The app empowers us parents to control of what YouTube content their child can see, including the option to only allow content from trusted partners like Sesame Street, ChuChu TV, Bounce Patrol and PBS Kids, or hand pick other videos and channels to create a curated playlist for their kids.
This announcement is only applicable to those in Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam. Although I am pretty sure it will be available to the U.S. too.
