We have developed KidsTube.com as an alternative to other popular video sharing sites which are appealing to kids but may not be the safest place for them to spend their time online. We are a new site, but growing very quickly. The best thing about KidsTube.com is we are very strict about monitoring every single video submission that is sent in, and making sure it is quality kid-friendly content before posting it on the site.

Military Kid Zone

This is a great alternative to Myspace. I am a military parent and this site allows my children to go on to the internet and enjoy the perks of social networking. Another great thing about the site is it will allow children to keep in touch with their friends when their parents move as well as it allows them to make friends before they arrive at their new home. The site is closely monitored and is completely COPPA compliant so it is safe and does not require any personal information.
