 ipl2 For Kids 

 

“The Internet can be an overwhelming place if you’re a kid. Trying to find age-appropriate information that is reliable can be challenging.  That’s why we created the For Kids section of the ipl2. From story time to homework to games & puzzles, trust us to lead the kids in your life to quality information you can trust!”

 

KidRex 

“KidRex is a custom Google search engine for kids. The interface is just like a child’s crayon drawing (the dinosaur stands guard). It uses SafeSearch and tries to keep all the results as antiseptic as possible.”

KidsClick

“KidsClick makes it clear in its About page that it is not an internet filter. It is a directory of good resources (a 600+ strong subject list) which kids can use for information or schoolwork. KidsClick is owned and run by the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at Kent State University. As the web resource links to a comprehensive collection of good, clean sites, the KidsClick interface is without any ads.”

 Quintura Kids 

Quintura for Kids is powered by Yahoo. It gives a more visual way of searching using a keyword cloud. You start off your search with a keyword in the text box and then modify it with any of the keywords in the cloud. Quintura displays five results per page. You may miss it, but clicking on the surrounding icons takes you to the five preset search categories:  Music, History, Animals, Sports and recreation, and Games.
