For parents searching for suitable online entertainment for their little ones, one of the most useful tools is the YouTube Kids app. Separated from the main site, YouTube Kids provides a safe, streamlined way for kids to enjoy only age-appropriate content on the platform. YouTube Kids is home to many family-oriented channels that have gained popularity with kids and parents. From nursery rhymes to clips from popular kids’ TV shows, these channels are sure to provide hours of entertainment (and distraction!) for very young children. Here are the most popular YouTube Kids channels the platform currently has to offer.
The top-viewed YouTube Kids channel in 2019, CocoMelon has made a name for itself in kids’ entertainment with classic nursery rhymes and original songs set to colorful 3D animations. The channel features renditions of such well-known favorites as “Baa Baa Black Sheep” and “This is the Way.” It also has original tunes on subjects like visiting the doctor or going to Taekwondo class.
Eight-year-old Ryan Kaji is the real kid at the center of Ryan’s World. Ryan started off unboxing and reviewing toys on YouTube. However, his channel has evolved, with the help of Ryan’s parents, to include educational songs and vlogs (video blogs) starring the young YouTuber. This YouTube Kids channel’s most viewed video allows viewers to join Ryan as he learns about the alphabet with foam letter toys.
The long-running Peppa Pig children’s show first began running in the UK back in 2004. Since then, the animated shorts starring Peppa, her little brother George, and their parents have gained massive popularity with families the world over.
The YouTube Kids channel features clips from the show’s extensive run. In fact, a compilation of popular shorts was the channel’s most viewed video of 2019. With years and years of Peppa Pig to draw from, this channel is a great source of entertainment for kids.
Nick Jr. debuted on TV as Nickelodeon’s imprint for early childhood entertainment. Since then, it has maintained popularity as the home of such hit kids’ shows as Paw Patrol, Top Wing, and Blue’s Clues. The Nick Jr. YouTube channel is chock-full of clips from these and other popular shows, along with original shorts and games kids are sure to love.
Parents looking for teachable moments and life lessons for their toddlers should take a look at the BabyBus YouTube Kids channel. BabyBus follows an animated cast of adorable kittens, pandas and other animals. These cute critters learn important lessons about things like potty training, wearing seatbelts and going to the doctor.
BabyBus is heavier on original songs than classic nursery rhymes. However, the new songs go a long way toward imparting essential wisdom for tykes.
