This week the BBC have launched a new kids version of BBC iPlayer, bringing together the best of CBBC, CBeebies and other kids content from the BBC in one ever so handy interface. 

With schools in the UK now closed for most children, keeping kids informed, educated and entertained at home, is more important than ever. 

But let’s be honest, with many of us also juggling work at the same time, it’s a mammoth task. 

Thankfully, the kid’s iPlayer is a treasure trove of content, from hit shows like Hey Duggee, and Bing, to David Walliams classics such as The Boy in The Dress, Gangsta Granny and Mr Stink.

There is also a range of educational shows, your kids can be ‘number detectives’ with Numberblocks, go on adventures across the world with GoJetters, or learn about the planet’s deadliest animals with Deadly 60. 

And, so you can have some much needed downtime, you can let your kids browse the full range of content, safe in the knowledge that anything they choose will be age appropriate. 

There are child friendly categories for them to pick and browse from Trending, Drama, Funny, and Cartoons. 

When you launch iPlayer different users will be available to choose from including 'children'

To take a look and get started, all you need to do is select the monster shaped ‘children’ button which appears when you launch BBC iPlayer from your Freeview Play TV - so sit back and enjoy!
