Youtube is throwing parents who can’t take their kids watching a particular movie over and over again a helping hand. Over the next month until August 31st, Youtube Kids will release over 100 free movies and other special offers as part of the organization’s After School project.
In a report, YouTube’s Head of Family and Learning Partnership, Don Anderson, explained that the service wants to help parents and guardians who can’t keep up with work, life, and family at the same time because of the work from home arrangements caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Especially since their children may have to keep staying at home if they can’t resume school and other activities yet. Don Anderson wrote: “ We want to help you with a library of high-quality full-length movies and specials that will enrich as well as entertain your children, and that you can enjoy along with them.”
The new selection of Kids shows will include Baby Shark ad Pinkfong, Tayo the Little Bus, Masha And The Bear, Oggy & the Cockroaches, and Paddington. Hair love, which won the Best Animated Short Film at the Oscar Awards, will also be included alongside a bunch of other shorts.
The fun doesn’t just end there, there will also be educational specials, such as Sesame Street’s Elmo’s World News, and new movies and shows on the platform. Parents can look forward to new posts every week to keep their children entertained at all times. YouTube kids will show all its After School content every Monday under the platform’s ‘Shows’ category over the next couple of weeks.
