Google on Monday officially rolled out a version of its YouTube video-streaming site just for kids. The YouTube Kids app, available for free download on Android and iOS, contains family-friendly videos from children's favorites such as DreamWorks TV, Jim Henson TV, Mother Goose Club and Talking Tom and Friends.

It features channels and playlists in four categories: Shows, Music, Learning and Explore. The app's design features a big, brightly colored interface as well as parental controls, including a built-in timer that lets you limit your kids’ screen time.
