Kiddle.co is a web search engine and online encyclopedia emphasizing safety for young children.

History

The domain was registered in 2014. The designers chose the .co domain name in order to emphasize that is for "children only."

Format

Kiddle uses an outer space theme for their pages. After the user enters the subject, Kiddle presents search results, with the first three results being deemed safe and written specifically for kids and "checked by Kiddle editors", the next four being safe sites not written specially for kids, but presented in kid friendly language. The eighth result and anything else beyond are safe sites written for adults but harder to understand for kids.

If the user enters words that may not be suitable for children a picture of a robot is displayed, telling the user to try again.

Kpedia

Kiddle Encyclopedia (Kpedia) is an online encyclopedia, available from their search engine, powered by MediaWiki. It lists over 700,000 articles, and is "based on selected content and facts from Wikipedia, rewritten for children." Kiddle positions its Kpedia as an educational resource to be used for "school homework help and general education," and includes their articles in search results.
