So there is now a child friendly search engine called Kiddle? If you are going to permit your young child to search online, then the Kiddle search engine is the one to use. It is very child friendly and blocks inappropriate content allowing for a safer Online experience for your child. If you’re are guessing the reason for this, your guess is as good as mine. It is to ensure that kids “see no evil” on the wild internet while they engage in other online learning activities. The search engine is targeted at kids between the ages of 2 – 12 years old.
My itchy fingers tried to put the search engine to the test and typed in the word “sex” and it tols me no results were found…brilliant! Kiddle is highly visual and allows children see images of definitions they might not have ordinarily understood.
Now here is the surprise, the website has no association with Google – and does not claim to. It uses a Google Custom Search bar embedded within the website in a bid to filter out adult material. Certain content is filtered and a number of explicit terms, and celebrities including Pamela Anderson are blocked. Apparently anyone using this search engine for kids wanting to find out about any LGBT feelings they may have is out of luck
Well, parents have welcomed this new search engine terming it “Google for Kids.” They do not seem to be interested in whether it was created by Google or not.
Kiddle is a visual search engine for kids powered by Google, offering safe kids web, image, and video search. A kiddle is an old name for a fishing weir
