Kideos is the premier destination for kids to safely watch videos online. Each video on Kideos has been screened by our Video Advisory Council before it makes it onto our site. Our goal is to empower parents to feel comfortable allowing their child to spend time on Kideos, while also making sure children have a thoroughly entertaining experience.
Kideos was created by Earlier Media, a company dedicated to providing a trustworthy destination for children of all ages to learn, watch videos and play games online. You can read more about Earlier Media on our website at www.EarlierMedia.com
We developed the idea for Kideos while we were looking for videos online with our daughter when she was hospitalized in November 2008. Elmo seemed to be the only thing that kept her entertained while she was hooked up to some monitors, but the problem was that every once in a while, we would click on a video that was highly inappropriate.
Over the next few months, we had a number of other hospital visits and doctor appointments and a lot more Elmo. During this time we decided that the easiest thing for us as parents was simply to create a website that we could let our daughter enjoy by herself, and Kideos was born. We have been fortunate that our daughter's condition is permanent but non-progressive, and we have avoided the hospital since then. However, we are happy to share our creation with the world so other parents and children can enjoy worry-free online entertainment.
If you enjoy using the site, we encourage you to make a small donation to Children's Hospital Los Angeles, where our daughter received excellent care and we were inspired to create Kideos. Please reference Kideos in the donation field if you do so!
Video Advisory Council:
Our Video Advisory Council is made up of a select group of parents and educators with one goal in mind: to find online videos that are thoroughly entertaining for kids and completely worry-free for parents. Once videos make it past their scrutiny, we categorize them by age range based on developmental criteria recommendations from leading experts nationwide. The Council is currently full, but please check back regularly for future openings.
