KidRex is a fun and safe search for kids, by kids! KidRex searches emphasize kid-related webpages from across the entire web and are powered by Google Custom Search™ and use Google SafeSearch™ technology.

Google's SafeSearch™ screens for sites that contain explicit sexual content and deletes them from your child’s search results. Google's filter uses advanced technology to check keywords, phrases, and URLs. No filter is 100 percent accurate, but SafeSearch™ should eliminate most inappropriate material.

In addition to Google SafeSearch™, KidRex maintains its own database of inappropriate websites and keywords. KidRex researchers test KidRex daily to ensure that you and your child have the best web experience possible.

We do our best to keep KidRex as up-to-date and comprehensive as possible, but inappropriate sites will sometimes slip through the cracks. If you find websites containing offensive content in your results, please visit our webpage removal request tool to tell us about the site you found.

While KidRex is not a 100 percent foolproof way to keep kids from bad or malicious sites, we think it's a good start. For more pointers on keeping your family safe on the web, please read KidRex's Tips for Online Safety.

1. Safe search: sites appearing in Kiddle search results satisfy family friendly requirements, as we filter sites with        explicit or deceptive content.

2. Kids-oriented results: the boxes below illustrate how Kiddle returns results for each query.

Yes to CITATIONS and No to Plagiarism

Copyright and Plagiarism for KIDS

Avoiding Plagiarism


1.  First, use your own ideas. It should be your paper and your ideas that should be the focus.

2.  Use the ideas of others sparingly--only to support or reinforce your own argument.

3.  When taking notes, include complete citation information for each item you use.

4.  Use quotation marks when directly stating another person's words.

5.  A good strategy is to take 30 minutes and write a short draft of your paper without using any notes. It will help you think through what you want to say and help prevent your being too dependent upon your sources.
