Baby-Tube

Remember when you were a baby and you loved to upload and watch videos on the internet? Oh, right. We'll be the last generation to say to our kids " We didn't have internet when I was your age." Meanwhile, little rugrats as young as 6 months can find kid-friendly vids at Totlol.com (for those who are of a certain age and may not know, LOL comes from the commonly used acronym which stands for "laugh out loud.")

The creator of Totlol.com, Ron Ilan wanted to create a space that was safe for his two toddlers, and it has turned into the social networking site for those still in diapers. The site—which is still in Beta—has 42 hours of parent-approved content on the site with thousands of videos about penguins, hippos and other lovable characters. The best part is that the community allows parents to pick the videos that get shown. Rather than having their kids exposed to violent video clips such as the one in which a certain muppet takes puts the smackdown on a big purple dinosaur, parents will find suitable fare for kids up to age six. Because, as you well know, the ages of newborn to six are formative years, the ones in which kids should learn to ask for "more video!"


What do you think? Are you glad to know that there's a safe site where children can view wholesome videos? [CNET]
