Totlol: YouTube Videos for Toddlers

Totlol is a community-moderated video site for “those between the ages of 6 months and 6 years.” Its video embeddings – like the Googleheads song – are based on the YouTube API, making for a customized, integrated look*. Totlol’s About page explains, “Online video is a great new experience, and new parents discovered that showing their tots videos on the computer screen is a great way to spend time together. So they head to the leading video websites.” Totlol steps in, the explanation reads, because some of the bigger video sites “provide no way to filter anything that may be inappropriate and they provide very limited tools to find what is appropriate and relevant.”

Site owner Ron told me what inspired him to create Totlol: “I’m a web developer and a dad to a Toddler boy (2.5y) and an Infant girl (1y). Both are avid fans of online videos.”

[Thanks Ron!]

*An interesting concept, it could probably be adapted for all kinds of topic areas to create a new site.
