YouTube Kids Red Launch TODAY! #ThankingtheYouTubeGods

In full disclosure here, I’m a member of YouTube’s Parent Panel. I’ve had this incredible opportunity to work with YouTube up close and personal throughout the launch of their YouTube Kids app for the last year. It’s been an awesome opportunity for me because my daughter lives and breaths for the YouTube Kids. Even as I’ve writing this post, she’s on the bed next to me in our hotel watching YouTube Kids. It’s been an incredible outlet for her to enjoy, learn and share with your brothers/cousins/friends.

Believe me, my love for YouTube Kids goes deep! It’s been such an awesome outlet for Victoria in keeping her busy and occupied on trips, in restaurants, on the pool deck, etc.  I have recommended YouTube Kids to every mom and dad out there of a toddler!

Well – there’s HUGE NEWS TODAY!

    That’s so much fun! I wish this had been around when my kids were younger. I had to pull everything up for them, and if they ever looked anything up without me, I watched it like a hawk!
