YouTube Kids is a safe space for children whether they are“ searching for science experiments, watching a favorite cartoon, or simply watching your favorite creator’s new videos, there is something for everyone”, says Google.

The service was launched a little over two years ago and is available in 26 countries with more to follow. Google says that the service has streamed 30 billion views and that it has 8 million weekly active viewers.
