10 Video Websites That Are Like YouTube for Kids

The Internet is wonderful for entertainment and interesting content. However, for kids, that entertaining content isn't always appropriate. It's difficult for parents to allow their kids to use YouTube, because it's very hard to filter out the bad content from the good.

Luckily, many of the children's sites across the Internet publish their own version of YouTube, dedicated exclusively for kids and no one else.

The following list is ten of the best online video websites that offer entertaining and educational videos that kids will love. If you are a parent looking for an alternative to television for your kids, or you're a teacher looking for appropriate content for the classroom, this list can help.

National Geographic Kids Videos

National Geographic is very popular for its content for children, with a section for games, activities and stories, but one of the most popular sections of all is the comprehensive "videos" section that features lots of original programming from National Geographic Kids.

Videos include cartoons, educational nature videos and lots more. You can feel confident with the safety of the website, and let your kids browse all of the videos they want.

Kid Mango Videos

KidMango is probably one of the most comprehensive kids video sites because it covers more than one genre and a wide age range. At KidMango, you'll find videos from BabyTV, Maniacs (8+ years), Kids for 4 to 7 years, Jay Jay the Jet Plane and much more.

The player at KidMango is fun and easy for kids to use, and there are also seasonal updates with new videos all the time, so kids will never run out of fun things to watch.

neoK12

neoK12 is an excellent alternative to YouTube for parents that prefer their kids watch more educational videos. The tagline for neoK12 is "educational videos, lessons and games for K-12 school kids." To appeal to those age groups, the videos have to be somewhat entertaining as well as educational.
