Lafayette, IN (PRWEB) August 01, 2016
With the families' acknowledgement of the fact that automatic curation of videos for kids does not always work safely, and in an effort to standardize the way children access and consume Internet videos with zero risks, the children's media company JuniorTube (operated by Nehloo Interactive) partnered with an inaugural group of famous Creators of Internet videos for kids between 2 and 12 years old, to launch JuniorTube Originals.
Creators of videos for kids are pre-selecting their best videos themselves, as the first stage of approval, then they upload the videos to JuniorTube for the second stage of the review and approval performed by JuniorTube’s content editors. The thorough process is making the safest videos available for kids to watch on the new JuniorTube Originals service launching in the beginning of August 2016.
The video platform JuniorTube Originals gives parents the freedom to filter the videos based on their kids’ age, by selecting a range between 2-12 y.o., a feature reportedly appealing to Creators of videos for kids because they can target a more appropriate audience for their content.
JuniorTube's partner HooplaKidz is one of the most popular Internet channels for preschoolers, featuring cute and cool characters Annie, Ben and Mango singing and dancing to popular nursery rhymes and original songs. HooplaKidz already has billions of video views for their entertainment and educational Internet videos, and they now partnered with JuniorTube to publish their content in a safe environment and to make sure their videos and series are watched by their intended audience - toddlers.
For preteens, Epic Wildlife publishes on JuniorTube amazing new animal species and teaches about the world’s most mysterious creatures, via new wildlife videos every week.
Nursery rhymes, kid songs, children’s music, educational videos for toddlers and babies is what kids will find on Tea Time with Tayla’s JuniorTube channel.
STEM enthusiasts will discover on JuniorTube a few channels like The Brick Show or JK Brickworks that present reviews, news, short films about engineering and design, brick building tutorials, custom models design, mechanical and robotic models. Stop-motion videos made with brick blocks are having a showcase on JuniorTube as well, with the participation of famous Creators like MICHAELHICKOXFilms. For kids loving science, WhizKidScience presents videos of easy science experiments that kids can do at home.
The world of books and reading is having a great introductory partner - KidLit TV, winner of Parents’ Choice Gold Award, a diverse group of parents, educators, librarians, and award-winning filmmakers all working together to inspire kids to read great books.
Videos made with Minecraft (a Microsoft product) are very popular on the Internet. Kids love most Minecraft videos, but they shouldn’t watch them in the same place where adults watch videos online. Popular channel Enchanted Mob participates on JuniorTube with a series of animated music videos with Minecraft characters and scenes that kids will enjoy.
Drawing tutorials, cartoons creation that inspire kids, animation showcases and tutorials are also featured on JuniorTube. Animation Chefs are four brothers teaching and producing stop-motion animation for the youngest among us. Pencilmation Cartoons features cartoons produced and directed by Ross Bollinger, and animated and orchestrated by a host of artists from around the globe. How to Draw and Paint channel invites little kids to be the artists they want to be, by following step-by-step tutorials that will give kids the instructions, inspiration and confidence to be an amazing artist.
Kids are different in talents and interests. That is why JuniorTube Creators help kids explore videos by interests. JuniorTube offers Creators 22+ interests they can select to pre-filter their videos available for kids using JuniorTube. From “Arts & Crafts”, “Books & Reading”, “Funny & Comedies”, “Songs & Dance”, “Sports & Activities”, to “Inspiring & Motivational”, “Learning & Educational”, “STEM”, “Strong Girls Characters” and many other categories, kids can find the perfect match for their talents and interests.
JuniorTube Originals is literally a Snapchat of videos made for kids 2-12 y.o. The videos for kids expire from the front page after a few weeks, while other new videos are posted daily. This way, there are always available new and fresh videos on the front page of JuniorTube for kids to discover.
Besides mostly non-exclusive content, kids may also find exclusive original videos on JuniorTube. Creators are offered the option to make available some of their videos or series exclusive on JuniorTube.
When pausing any video being watched on JuniorTube, kids can start drawing and annotating on top of the still frame of the video. The annotated images are saved automatically on the iPad.
There are no ads on JuniorTube.
